A beautiful one-story home in coveted Surrey Farms neighborhood greets you with unique design details that embrace Santa Fe style. The home has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. The kitchen, living room, library/office and master bedroom open onto a beautiful Southwestern patio. This is the ultimate entertaining and family home.
Enter into a large double-door grand foyer. Sight lines extend through the living room and patio towards the white wave-like wall that defines the swimming pool. A loft-type openness extends throughout the large living areas.
The over-sized dining room has limestone floors, a wood-burning fireplace, beautiful plantation shutters and slate tile borders that define the room. Color accents the fireplace mantle. Professional museum lighting has been installed to light the art collection.
The living room boasts beautiful hardwood floors, another wood-burning fireplace, custom alder wood cabinetry and lighted shelving to display a decorative arts collection.
The light and bright kitchen has state of the art appliances (Sub Zero, Miele, 6-burner gas Thermador range, Dacor double-ovens and separate microwave.) The large, recessed skylight illuminates the granite island and alder wood custom cabinetry that match the living room.
The kitchen opens to a cozy morning room / TV den with large windows facing the back yard, patio and pool. There is a powder room off the kitchen with a custom mirror, glass-blown sink, lighting and slate floors that were designed to create a modern statement to contrast with the Southwestern feeling of the home.
A light and bright library/office with a skylight opens onto the patio and has views of the pool. It features custom cabinets and hardwood floors.
Two bedrooms with large walk-in closets share one hall bath. The master bedroom has two walk-in closets and French doors that open onto the patio. The master bath has a skylight, twin sinks, a stall shower and a separate jacuzzi tub.
The 4th bedroom is at the opposite end of the home near the kitchen. It is a large bedroom with custom built-in cabinets and desk. It has brand new carpet, paint and shades. This room is a multi-purpose space if a 4th bedroom isnPt needed. It has a door that opens to the backyard grill area giving it a private entrance for an in-law/au pair suite; or it would make a lovely playroom, home office or media/hobby room. There is a bathroom with skylight and stall shower dedicated to this bedroom.
A large laundry room features a Miele Touchtronic washer and dryer, a deep stainless sink and a counter to fold laundry with built-in custom cabinetry for additional storage, including a wine rack and a built-in wine refrigerator.
The extra-large walk-in pantry has been custom designed for large appliances, platters, seasonal dishes and Costco bulk items.
The 490 square foot covered living and dining patio gives this Los Gatos home a uniqueness and style that is the heart of the Southwest. Santa Fe design and colors, a limestone floor, gorgeous wood beam ceiling with thunderbird accents, skylights, custom light fixtures from Two Hills Studios in Austin, Texas, built-in benches with tile accents for extra seating, and electric heaters installed in the beams create this special living space. It has a serving area with a stone top, Mexican tile sink, custom cabinetry, outdoor refrigerator and Marvel icemaker.
The completely private backyard boasts an eco-friendly, drought tolerant landscape with native plants and several fruit trees (lemon, lime, orange, tangerine, Fuji apple and plum). Beautiful landscape and pool lighting create a wonderful ambience for evening entertaining.
The large solar-heated pool was re-plastered two years ago and new energy efficient pool equipment was installed. A stamped concrete decking surrounds the pool with a stunning white wave-like wall rising out of the pool. The backyard includes a private outdoor shower, hot tub, gas fire pit deck area that leads to a meditation path, a yoga and hammock deck area, two-micro vegetable gardens and a Lynx gas grill.
The home has a three-car garage that has built-in shelving for storage. The third stall has been converted into a 250 square foot studio-office that uses Australian hardwood floors, color, and lighting to make a uniquely creative space. It features an audiophile electrical system and has been insulated for sound.
