Clean lines & architectural sophistication set the stage for this contemporary retreat amidst the natural beauty of the water. The site itself is one of a kind, with no neighboring structure to its left, this DOUBLE LOT allows for undisrupted views of the lake and its mature landscaping. Together, the owners combined their architecture and interior design prowess to transform the existing home into a unique sanctuary for themself and their family. Once inside, the expansive views unfold, with floor-to-ceiling accordion doors which reveal distant views. Ample thought went into every decision for this property, from the split zone HVAC system, to the convenience of a pot filler, or even the built-in wine chiller underneath the stairway, no detail was left overlooked. That continues in the kitchen with an island slab that covers a distance of close to half the property's length. The owners chose to integrate the dining room into the kitchen area with an extremely unique dual level center island. With the Californian climate being so conducive to being outdoors, reinforcing an inside-outside connection was crucial for the owners. By opening up the interior to the outdoors, daily functions spill outward across the threshold, further enhancing the available floor space. Here the focal point is the massive covered patio which acts as the family's gathering area. Its features include a full media center, built-in porcelain tiled fireplace, fully stocked outdoor kitchen, and a private spa with expansive views over the lake just steps away. Because of the space afforded given the properties lot, the owner was allowed to create a garden area that simply does not exist for any surrounding lakefront property. With a vast section of fruit trees to an extremely rare Dypsis Decaryi Palm which is only native to the rainforests of Madagascar, the owners created a distinctive haven which is truly unrivaled. Upstairs offers a fresh perspective of the water, from the masters suites balcony, you finally see the full expansiveness of the lake below. From the walk in closet to the redesigned en suite bathroom, this room is a true sanctuary. If stairs present an issue, the property also includes a downstairs office which can easily be converted into a bedroom with its accompanying full bathroom. Casually sophisticated, this residence mixes layers of detail both inside and out to create this idyllic compound in the heart of Hidden Lakes.
