Homes like this rarely come on the market. Custom designed by local architect Michael Sotero and built in 2002, this Tuscan inspired home makes a statement. The entry courtyard, wrought ironwork, tile roof, & copper gutters underscore the caliber of the home. Inside, curved walls, tray ceilings, and an open staircase convey elegance. Designed to maximize views of the nature preserve while maintaining privacy, the unique floor plan offers separation of space with natural flow for indoor/outdoor living. The oversized patio feels like an extension of the home, featuring a Rumford style fireplace with custom tile & Napa stone pillars. Five zone radiant heat is throughout the home. Expansive windows, separate office, reading nook, built-in shelving & cabinetry, two gas fireplaces, and so much more. Situated in the Uplands gated community, the location offers exclusivity with proximity to the beach. This home has been well loved by the original owners and is now ready to become your retreat.
