This 2-story luxury home with pool is nestled in the picturesque hills of Explorer Ridge Estates and exudes the magic and majesty of a breezy Mediterranean villa. From airy interiors to the breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding landscape, this is the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy living in the city known as the “Jewel of the Hills.”
Enter through a stately eyebrow door with sidelights to a welcoming tile foyer that features recessed seating and a glass block wall. The open living space is radiant with natural light from glorious ceiling-to-floor window arrays, accent windows and skylight, and the multidimensional room design wows with vaulted and beamed ceilings accentuated by stunning architectural details, including arched doorways and windows. Light-hued walls and plush carpeting join with floor-level tilt windows to enhance the open atmosphere.
Extend dinner parties from the formal dining room to the outdoors by stepping through elegant French doors to a lovely paved patio with covered, outdoor kitchen and plenty of room for seating. A concrete walkway extends around the entire house, providing many unique vantage points from which to enjoy the spectacular views.
