This European-style country retreat in the desirable Pleasant Valley area is a magical escape from the fast pace of Silicon Valley. Perfect as a primary residence or second home for weekend getaways, the property spans approximately 17 acres in a gated community of just 6 homes preceded by vineyards and orchards. A long driveway leads to the homes knoll-top position, which affords added privacy, uninterrupted natural beauty, and sweeping valley views out to the ocean. Luxuriously appointed with a chic country style, the three-story home has a flexible floor plan suited to a variety of lifestyle needs, including extended family living. There are 4 bedrooms, with options for main- or upper-level master suites, an office or 5th bedroom, plus spacious lower-level quarters with full bath and private outside entrance. Topping it all off is a 1,400-bottle wine cellar, a fabulous kitchen and family room combination, plus an extensive, wraparound view terrace for outdoor living.
