Ascending the curving mountain road to this newly built luxury residence in the hills of Santa Ana, you will feel you are entering a different world and different, cooler climate. This 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home (plus maid’s quarters) is surrounded by lush vegetation, mature hardwood forests, tropical plantings.
Completed in November 2011, this home was built to exacting standards by a U.S. contractor/owner. The home is located within an ultra-secure gated community of large estate homes, all built on oversized lots to allow maximum privacy and contact with nature.
The contemporary home blends colonial materials such as authentic clay tile floors and roof tiles, with modern elements such as large picture windows, open floor plan, and a even a built-in koi pond.
The home’s first level includes a large open kitchen/dining/living area. High-quality custom cabinetry, granite counters, a large center island, and stainless steel appliances make the kitchen a cook’s dream. The open floor plan allows for seamless entertaining and family time. There is a large terrace off the kitchen for dining al fresco.
The spacious master suite is situated on the first floor with a spa bath and walk-in closet. A large picture window and balcony capture the gorgeous views of the forest and central valley.
The second floor includes two bedrooms, which share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom, and ample terraces for enjoying the fresh air. Another room on this level can serve as a home office or fourth bedroom.
The pièce de résistance is the large rooftop terrace, which affords jaw-dropping views of the central valley and volcanoes. Enjoy perfect privacy for sunbathing, reading, or a dip in your Jacuzzi. Also tailor-made for rooftop parties and watching the fireworks that light up the central valley on New Year’s Eve.
Outside there is a huge, level garden area, as well as a stone fire pit. There is covered parking for 2 cars, plus outdoor parking for many more.
