Views, privacy, and elegance are the hallmarks of this single-level soft contemporary home, constructed by renowned builder Doug McDowell. On 2.37 acres in a private gated community in Sierra del Norte, it enjoys vistas of sunsets and city lights and is accompanied by a one-bedroom guesthouse and a landscaped yard with a three-season greenhouse. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace and tall ceilings and flows easily to a spacious dining area that can accommodate eight. The gourmet kitchen boasts stainless-steel appliances from Wolf, Sub-Zero, and KitchenAid plus abundant counter space. The owner’s suite includes a wood-burning fireplace, a generous walk-in closet, access to a private outdoor area, and a spacious bath with double sinks, an oversized shower, a jetted tub, and a discreet water closet. An adjoining bedroom could easily serve as a den, office, media room, or gym. The rear portal—accessed via the living room, dining room, and kitchen—has a wood-burning fireplace and opens to the landscaped backyard. The guesthouse offers one bedroom and bath, an office area, plumbing for a kitchenette, and a spacious basement for auxiliary storage or a wine cellar. The Dale Ball Trail System and in-town conveniences are minutes away.
