Positioned on a large homesite to take full advantage of its expansive hill and valley views, the distinguished five-bedroom (5th bed has no closet ), four- and one-half-bath residence extends across approximately 4,399 square feet. The open design is virtually single-level, with the single second story room reserved for a versatile loft with deck that can easily become an office, a gym and more. A gated entry courtyard hints at the beauty that awaits beyond the front door, which leads to an impressive foyer, and a family room with fireplace, built-ins, automatic shades, and 9’ sliding glass doors that open to the backyard. A fireplace, built-ins and automatic shades complement the family room, which opens to a stunning fully appointed chef’s kitchen, complete with a massive island, breakfast nook, shiplap ceiling, leathered quartzite countertops, white cabinetry with glass uppers, filtered drinking water, a built-in desk, and Thermador appliances including a built-in refrigerator and a six-burner range with griddle. Offering solar power, e-vehicle charger and whole-house filtered water, the San Juan Rustic residence is gorgeous at every turn thanks to elegant architecture, engineered hardwood flooring in most rooms, tile or carpet in select rooms, custom lighting, custom built-ins, vaulted ceilings, and smooth-coat finished interior and exterior walls.
