First impressions are key, and this home wows with European-inspired architecture complete with charming shutters and a classic turret, and mature landscaping that complements professionally designed hardscaping. Sunset and neighborhood-light vistas enrich a spacious backyard with saltwater Pebble Tec pool and spa, paver-finished patios, and a built-in BBQ island with granite counter, gas fire feature and refrigerator. Equally stunning, an expansive interior of approx. 3,906 s.f. showcases 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, formal living room with fireplace and bay window, a main-floor bedroom suite and a fireplace-warmed casita. Another fireplace is featured in a great room that opens to a designer kitchen with granite countertops, butler's pantry, traditional pantry, island, nook and high-end appliances, including a built-in refrigerator with cabinet-matched door panels. Completely flexible, an upstairs loft with fireplace is ideal as an office or home theater, and the master suite boasts a view deck, fireplace, walk-in closet, jetted tub and a separate shower with built-in seats. Model-caliber upgrades are led by crown molding, plantation shutters, a Juliet balcony, and travertine and distressed hardwood flooring.
