This gorgeous Cape Cod is located on approx. 2.6 level acres in a cul-de-sac, in the prestigious, gated community of Hidden Meadows of Santa Rosa Valley. Its expansive front lawn is beautifully landscaped, dotted with crepe myrtles and forest pansy redbud trees, while a delicate gazebo stands ready for intimate entertaining, or perhaps as a stage at a wedding. A reclaimed-brick walkway and porch lead you to the front door, which opens into a bright and soaring foyer with a winding staircase. On one side, a comfortable library beckons, with cherrywood bookcases and cabinetry, a warm marble fireplace, oak flooring, and a built-in window seat. On the other side, is a formal dining room, with wainscoating, matching oak floors, and a sparkling chandelier. A butler's pantry is connected, with lighted cherrywood cabinetry and plentry of space for china and linen. Stepping into the kitchen, you find a gourmet cook's dream, with a Viking professional range complete with griddle and grill, a sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, and a huge island in the middle complete with a second sink and trash compactor. A breakfast nook with its own fireplace completes the room, lending an entire wall of windows that look out upon the beautiful pool and garden. The family room is next, and is by far the largest. It's perfect for entertaining, with vaulted ceilings, built in cherrywood entertainment center and cabinetry, and a granite wet bar complete with a wine fridge. At the far end, a door leads onto an ateroom, and then the primary suite, which is an oasis: a large bedroom made larger by the addition of a private sitting area with a fireplace, and French doors opening to a secluded patio area with a private spa and fountain. The en suite bathroom has a separate makeup station with a basin , a second basin in a taller cabinet, two walk in closets, a large step up spa tub near another bank of windows, and a separate shower. The other end of the main level holds a mud room, laundry room, an additional bedroom, a full bathroom, and a powder room, all leading off a wide hallway. Moving upstairs, the second floor leads to a huge, carpeted bonus room that extends over the entire length of the 3+ car garage, fantastic for a billiards room with TV area, office space for the whole family , or a spectacular man-cave. Two spacious bedrooms are also on this level, each with its own bath, large closets, sitting area, and sliding doors that lead to the balcony deck overlooking the stunning backyard; a covered slate-rock patio runs the length of the home and extends out to encircle koi ponds, serene English gardens, a fabulous pool, spa and waterfall within a quiet latticed area. Beyond are the orchards of harvested avocado trees and California citrus: oranges, tangerines, lemons and grapefruit. A bank of solar panels, basketball and horseshoe pit area amongst the trees. This remarkable estate is so rich with beauty , warmth and expansiveness, and has so much to give.
