|Reminiscent of the French Countryside this expansive home offers a sophisticated environment that reflects the past but has all the amenities of modern living. A spacious receiving hall linked to two long sun galleries promotes large-scale, gracious entertaining. The balance of generously proportioned formal rooms blend with the spacious country kitchen, light-filled breakfast area, and an eminently inviting nearby family room with a fireplace. The 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath floor plan is highlighted by a secluded master suite with a spa-inspired bath and private access to the lush grounds. Extremely flexible accommodations are provided by two family bedrooms cleverly orchestrated to join into a bed-sitting suite as desired, plus a separate bedroom suite ideal for guests or an au pair. French doors everywhere open to a series of garden rooms that expand the home's already generous dimensions. The broad lawns and expansive pool terrace recall East Coast island resorts, while a multi-level dining and spa deck supports classic California year-round indoor/outdoor enjoyment. Completing this appealing picture is the convenient location near major commute routes, located within the highly regarded Las Lomitas School district.|
