This elegant Mediterranean Style home sits atop a private 2.6 acre knoll in Apple Valley Ranches.

A home site ideal for a neighborhood showplace and this home delivers! Nearly 3500 sq. ft. of stunning architecture with dramatic ceilings, wall after wall of Anderson Wood Frame Windows accenting all the numerous high end upgrades built into this unique home. An entertainers delight with both roomy breakfast nook and formal dining each flanking the well lite kitchen designed for anything you might want to create with a Subzero fridge, double ovens, gas cook top, double sinks, Corian Countertops, walk in pantry, even a built in desk! Gather in the spacious living room with soaring ceilings highlighted by a full wall of windows by day and an striking array of specifically placed lighting at dusk. Throw open the french doors and step out onto patios bordered by lawn all open to expansive views from each direction. Access to the office is to the left of the dramatic entry, just steps away from the oppulent master suite with its gas fireplace and french doors opening to the tile patio. The enormous private marble tiled bath is almost a suite itself with walk in shower, jetted tub and private water closet. The oversized closet just off the bath offers both natural light from the window as well as an abundance of electric lighting as well. A dramatic white post stair leads to an open loft with square footage that provides multiple options for use - family room, gym, additional bedrooms, media room. Also upstairs are two (potentially 3) guest bedrooms, a sitting room and a full bath! The thoughtful design of this home is seen in the placement of each feature from lighting, to laundry, from the oversized 3 car garage and workshop area, to the generator ready wiring hookup inside that garage! This home, built in 1992, has been renovated from roof to floor, both inside and out. Between the timeless design and complete renovations it might be confusing to be told this showplace is not actually a brand new build! Located in a subdivision beloved for the natural beauty, miles of walking, hiking, biking, or jogging trails alongside year round creeks, amidst organic apple orchards. In fact Indigengy Reserves is but a 5 min walk away! Just a 10 minute drive to town and a few more to all the activities offered in the Mother Lode from snow sports to summer, gold mining to wine tasting, lakes to mountains and everything in between. Call today for a private showing - but be prepared - this home is one that captures you from the moment you step inside!
