Property Description

Dream away while visiting this gorgeous and private historic 1890's home on over 18 acres with endless lifestyle possibilities while enjoying the tax benefits of a wildlife exemption. Backing up to the Rancho Diana Natural Area, over 1,000 acres of natural preserve, closed to the public gives a peaceful atmosphere to this special property! Drive into the high fenced property through the huge stone walled entry with custom artwork metal electric gate and wind up the driveway through the beautiful live oaks to the main home, oversized workshop/garage, cool historic water cistern and flex use detached structure. The main house invites you in through her cathedral covered patio with porch swing. Walk into an abundance of natural light with windows set up to enjoy the views of the property from any area of the home. Updated throughout with clean lines and Alderwood cabinetry. Enjoy cooking for company in the open kitchen, offering glass cabinetry w/ handcrafted iridescent glass tile backsplash, special cabinet lighting, granite countertops and stainless appliances. Guests can visit with the cook while sitting at the oversized kitchen island breakfast bar. Kitchen opens into the dining area with a sitting area space created to sip on a glass of wine, adorned in pine ceilings, imported Mexican terrazzo tile and accented with a stone wall. This open and airy space leads to the main living room. Here you will find panoramic views of the property overlooking the ridge and the valley of endless trees and blue skies. Enjoy the views while reading a book from the custom built-ins while warming up to a wood fire blazing from the oversized stone fireplace. The master suite is situated privately on the East side of the home with views of the outdoors, pine ceilings and custom full bath.
