A sense of arrival. A sensation we all wish to feel upon arriving home, yet one of the most challenging to accomplish. It started with the careful selection of a preferred lot in one of the most coveted communities, Villa Real. Located in lower E section, this home is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, providing the utmost in privacy, exclusivity, and of course, unobstructed postcard views. The owners of this residence from design took advantage of the views to provide an iconic impression upon arrival home. Unlike most residences in Villa Real with challenging entries, this estate residence welcomes you with an expansive, flat driveway with plenty of parking, leading to the home’s spacious 3 car oversized, enclosed garage. It’s landscaping and contemporary facade with stone accents welcomes residents and guests highlighted by its custom high metal weave double door.
While the exterior of the home is impressive, as the doors open, the wide two-story atrium, winding staircase, sky and valley view’s capture even the most critical eye. Following the impactful entry, eyes are drawn to the details such as the marble floors, floating staircase, and intricate wood ceiling design framing the space. The second floor hallways and lofts are designed for the view and to overlook the main level while providing a homey feel to this magnificent estate. The main level takes you through the formal living and dining room split by the impressive marble staircase. To the left in the “west wing” a spacious home office, a large casual TV living room boasting access and views from its covered terrace of the valley of Santa Ana, and guest bathroom with jaw dropping custom finishes from the quartz countertops, imported cabinetry, and lattice door woodwork found throughout the home. Returning through the formal living area the exterior balconies with roll down shades wrap around the entire back of the home along the infinity edge pool and jacuzzi, raised green terrace and BBQ area. Inside the “east wing” of the home you find its bright breakfast nook, functional open kitchen with expansive island and gas range, along with state of the art appliances.

Conveniently down the hall from the kitchen, is another guest bathroom, mudroom to hang backpacks and soccer shoes leaving the home clean as you come from the home’s oversized 3-car garage. Off the hallway is a large sunny laundry room, and private service quarters.
