Sensational Saratoga sanctuary, tucked among professionally-designed gardens and within walking distance of the charming and historic village, showcases a level of comfort and sophistication reserved for those discerning homebuyers seeking a one-of-a-kind, exclusive residence.
Over $500,000 in updates inside and out showcase a gorgeous interior with classic features that flow to an enchanting backyard oasis featuring multiple venues to dine, entertain, relax and unwind.
Under the enormous canopy of an age-old Heritage oak, one of the oldest trees in town, the ultra-private backyard presents a custom-designed water feature that creates melodic sounds from its waterfalls that cascade down multitiered stones. A vegetable garden with raised beds designed by a master gardener is tucked behind a beautiful, custom-crafted gate. Here year-round produce is grown to share with neighbors and friends. Flagstone and paver pathways meander through the gardens and arrive at a romantic gazebo, a sitting area around a fire pit, and a detached studio/office.
Arrive at this hidden gem nestled on a private cul-de-sac, and it is love at first sight. The paved circular and side driveway are wrapped in lush garden beds under another majestic Heritage oak.
The almost 2,900 square feet of living space is drenched in natural light with windows framing the outdoor garden art. Hardwood floors, new carpet, decorative millwork, plantation shutters, custom, and recessed lights, smooth-textured walls, and high ceilings stand out throughout the open floor plan that also offers four bedrooms and three full bathrooms. The fourth bedroom is behind glass French doors off the entry and makes an ideal office with its wall of built-in bookcases, cabinetry, and a front-facing garden view.
Stunning formal rooms designed for entertaining on a grand scale include a front-facing living room with a vaulted ceiling and a gas fireplace with a carved mantel. The formal dining room is a sizable room with French doors that open to a sunroom.
The culinary kitchen is updated with a coffered ceiling, porcelain counters, painted cabinetry, a farmhouse sink and Thermador appliances, including a five-burner cooktop, oven, microwave, and warming drawer, plus a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Fisher & Paykel dual dishwasher drawers, and a wine refrigerator. A pair of stylish pendants illuminate the peninsula island/breakfast bar. The adjacent breakfast nook is a light-filled space wrapped in windows.
The wood-burning stove with its cobblestone surround reaches the top of the vaulted ceiling anchoring the spacious family room. French doors offer a seamless flow to the backyard.
The primary suite is a luxurious retreat with vaulted ceilings, two custom-designed walk-in closets and French doors that open onto the deck overlooking the expansive outdoor sanctuary. The spa-inspired en suite is beautifully appointed with a dual-sink vanity, wainscoting with a band of decorative tile, a large walk-in shower and a free-standing tub. Natural light from a skylight, a trio of pendant lights and wall-mounted fixtures illuminate the room.
Two additional sizable bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom with a single-sink vanity, granite countertops, and a tub/shower combination.
Additional features include an oversize detached two-car garage with a workshop area, a laundry room with a sink and ample cabinetry, auxiliary closets with motion lights, a pull-down staircase to attic storage, keyless door locks, central air conditioning, and an eco-friendly water recycling system.
