From single-story living built around a “zen garden” to a guest-house that will impress even the most discerning of visitors, this luxury retreat nestled in the scenic Auburn hills has it all.
As you transcend down the driveway, notice the landscaping, the stone fruit trees on the hill, the bocce ball court. It really does feel like a secluded refuge, a secret hideaway where there are no rules except rest & relaxation.
Throughout the property, you’ll find ponds with lilypads and water lilies plus stone fountains for a pleasant soundtrack to your home life.
A stained-glass tree in the entry brings nature inside. This is sure to be a conversation starter for years to come.
From the foyer, you can go straight into the entertainment room/study that comes with a wet bar, fireplace, and a fabulous view of the garden. Or turn right into the formal dining room. Here you’ll find a second fireplace and gorgeous built-in buffet with room for everything.
Beyond there you’ll find a comfortable breakfast nook with its own fireplace, which is overlooked by the kitchen bar seating.
This kitchen is ready for the most ambitious of chefs! A sizeable center island has a 5-burner cooktop and vegetable sink. Other appliances include two built-in Dacor ovens, a Dacor microwave, and ultra-quiet Miele dishwasher. Plus the view of the front landscaping is visible through an almost seamless corner window over the sink.
Past the walk-in pantry, you’ll find a half-bath, laundry room, plus outdoor access to the backyard and garage.
Down the hall from the breakfast nook are two guest bedrooms with full en suite baths and walk-in closets.
On the other side of the house, you’ll find a lovely living room with a tray ceiling, gas fireplace, and those beautiful front yard views.
One thing you’ll notice is that every wall in the house that faces the garden has sliders. On nice days you can open up the whole house and enjoy the best of both indoors and out.
Both the living room and dining room open up to fully covered patios so even in the rain you can relax outside. Ahhhh, perfection…
Feel like royalty in the owner-s suite with a built-in bedframe with overhead lighting, space for multiple sitting areas and workspaces, plus tons of built-in shelving for your very own “library”.
The en suite bath is magnificent. Multiple vanities give you options and the walk-in closet has its own smaller closet! A steam shower has bench seating plus 2 showerheads, and the sauna is a great way to relax after a long day. Start off your mornings in the luxurious open shower with 4 showerheads and a view of the foliage outside.
Across the garden, you’ll find the guest house, complete with a fireplace, full kitchen, and great view of the pool. The bedroom has sliders on either side opening to both the garden and the pool.
The tiled pool sparkles in the afternoon sun, and tall bamboo provides shade over the lawn if you feel like lounging after a swim.
An enormous wooden pergola is covered in climbing jasmine, making it a fragrant spot for reading (and ideal for Instagram selfies!) A long counter with sink and grill provides a great buffet spot for outdoor entertaining. Have one large table or multiple tables for large parties – this patio can fit a lot! Or grab a glass of wine and enjoy the fire pit on a chilly evening.
The 4-car garage has tons of natural light for the workshop inside! And with possible boat/RV parking on the property, you’ll have room for all your toys.
Relax, rejuvenate, and rejoice in the retreat of your dreams! Welcome to true resort living.
