On top of the Mountain! A great and big house with a world class view!! It's hard to find the right adjectives to describe this property. You can see for more than 100 miles with fabulous vistas from every room, patio and pavilion. Views include distant mountains (including Mt. Diablo on a clear day), as well as Columbia Airport and New Melones Reservoir. At night you can see the lights of valley cities as you sit in awe looking at the stars. In short, this property could be purchased for the view alone. However, the beauty of the home itself rivals the majesty of the view. This home is spacious and extensively remodeled with only the finest quality materials and luxury finishes. The great room is impressive with a huge rock faced fireplace and hearth. Two sets of Anderson French doors open out onto the deck with a beautiful fire pit surrounded by comfortable seating. Adjacent to the great room is the dining room, large enough to hold that big dining table that supports your dinner parties and family holiday dinners. The custom, wall length, built in breakfront, is beautifully crafted with inset rain-glass doors to display your glassware and storage drawers for all your special dishware. Both rooms have custom hand-scraped hardwood floors and extensive wiring for entertainment and computer systems. The 450-sf chef's kitchen is the crown jewel of this amazing home. The focal point is the 12 ft picture window that faces west to capture the view. This window, as well as the bank of windows in the dining room, sport automatic solar shades with sun sensors that keep the sun in check. The kitchen has the same custom cabinetry as the dining room as well as high-end appliances and granite galore. The kitchen's unique lay out is designed to support the professional cook. The near new appliances include a built-in refrigerator, two dishwashers, two ovens, a warming drawer, a dual-zone wine cooler, three sinks, two garbage disposers, commercial Wolf 48" cook top with both grill and griddle, a pot filler and a large capacity range hood. Next to the kitchen is a walk-in pantry, half-bath and laundry. Off the kitchen sits the sun porch. Surrounded by windows on 3 sides, the room is sunny and light filled. It's the perfect place for your morning coffee or a great hide-away to curl up with a good book on a rainy day. The master suite is extremely large at over 1,100 sf. The bedroom has a two-sided fire place with one side facing the bedroom and the other in the hotel-like luxury spa bath room. There are his and hers walk-in closets and French doors leading to the deck. The bath has heated marble floors, a gorgeous soaking tub, large shower with dual heads, closeted toilet and double vanities with custom cabinetry and marble counter tops. This bathroom is a show-stopper! To round out the house, there is a guest room with full bath and plenty of closet space. In fact, storage is a strong point in this large, comfortable home. In addition to the main house, there's a 1350 sf detached guest house that contains a professional quality home theater (some equipment not included), a bedroom and full bath, a sleeping loft and a storage area with an additional storage loft above. This area is perfect the way it is or could be converted for the artist or small business person who needs space to create or manage a business. The property includes a beautiful water feature - a creek that runs over a waterfall and into a pond. The pond attracts wildlife to this quiet pristine place. Amenities include a patio with garden paths, a large pavilion to hold events, and an owned solar system that makes your energy use a bargain. All in all, this home and grounds have been well thought out, cared for and loved. If you're looking for a retreat with privacy, a quiet place to commune with nature, and a view that goes on forever, then come take a look. This sanctuary on the hill may be just the place for you.
