Property Details


Escape into a world of happiness and inspiration! A world that is hidden away like no other, on possibly the most gracious street of them all: Crest Drive! After entering through a stunning custom electric gateway, the long drive in reveals a breathtaking first look when you round the bend. Situated stately on more than a half-acre of lush, level grounds, this Santa Fe inspired residence will quicken your heartbeat the moment you first experience its magic. As you meander throughout the home and adjoining gardens, perhaps a conflict of emotions may arise. You have clearly realized you’ve rendezvoused with your secret and private Shangri-La destiny but, at the same time, the yearning to entertain grandly and showcase its beauty to the world calls you loudly. *See Supplement for Details. Befitting a truly executive residence, each aspect of the home and construction was individually considered and designed by the current owners. The unique aspects of the design are extensive. The custom plastered 12” thick walls and the individual coved ceiling spans have integrated into a stunning creation that exudes light and openness. The floor plan evokes feelings of a resort as you traverse different areas of the residence. There is a continuous intention of seamless indoor-to-outdoor transitions to ensure the entire grounds are incorporated as one singular work of art. If you live in a resort, well you certainly are going to want gourmet creations. You won’t be disappointed here as the combination of a beautiful Wolf 6-burner double oven range and Sub-Zero refrigerator set the preparation stage. A custom built-in pantry reflecting the genre of the home provides endless storage options. There are plentiful granite counters and cabinetry which opens to a charming breakfast retreat, framed with a custom fireplace. The home boasts a bevy of spaces, both grand and intimate. There is a formal living room with its own fireplace that gazes out to the interior gardens. The dining room, with its unique Aspen-lined ceiling, awaits both intimate dinner parties and special occasions. If you take a stroll down the gallery hallway, you will be welcomed into the grand family space. This room engages so many different parts of the residence, from the guest and auxiliary bedrooms to 3 different sections of the gardens. The space with its soaring ceilings and its dramatic fireplace beckons you from sunrise to sunset to come and enjoy, and just live your life. Perhaps the highlight of the home is the Primary Suite which encompasses the entire 2nd floor. A beautiful staircase drenched in natural light leads you up. The suite consists of 5 distinct components including the cozy sleeping quarters, a spacious primary bath and separate office with treetop views, all leading to a lighted exterior lounge area complete with a stairway to a rooftop “bird’s nest” ocean view deck. Truly, the primary suite is more appropriately labeled your own private sanctuary. The gardens deserve their own story space. Boasting no less than 5 mature fruit bearing avocado trees as a start, you will never be short of friends looking for their guac fix! Throw in 2 orange trees, lime, apricot, and tangerine trees, perhaps the local grocer will be calling on you! For the expert gardener, there are raised vegetable garden beds, an herb garden and an irrigation system. The grounds feature a west-facing veranda perfect for sunset respites and a central courtyard complete with covered patio retreat and nearby inground spa. What’s more is that the possibilities for this property are endless with so much usable land and space. Finally, let’s talk a little about the functional aspects. The 3-car individual door detached garage is a beautiful structure itself with built-in cabinetry, workbench, and a 220V outlet for EV/Charging. There is paid SOLAR installed on the garage roof and exterior parking for numerous cars. Part of the home is on central A/C and all bedrooms, as well as the family r...
