This particular residence, being placed on the market for the first time by its original owner, is a true work of art. Each nook and cranny of the home were designed by the owner, world renowned architect Ronald Zurcher, and an eclectic gathering of artistans including Donineli who worked with the owner on many specific details of the home to turn her dreams, into reality. There are so many details that any description will not do them justice, but are evident from the moment you pull up to the home. Of course, the look and feel on the exterior are notably Colonial, however, it is a close eye that reveals the carefully selected imported, hand-carved wooden doors, door bells, floor patterns in hand selected and handmade tiles, all of which were a culmination and result of the owner's world travels that have made their way into this residence.
Upon entering the residence, you will find a half bath at the entrance, as well as a home office, and then, the heart of the home is discovered. A large, living room in the center of the home that leads to a casual living room to the left, and a formal dining room to the right, as well as a tv room, and of course, access to the country kitchen and maid's quarters to the rear. These social areas are accented with ceramic and hardwood floors, and all open up to the true heart of this home, which is a resort like pool, gazebo, and entertainment area that exudes the essence of a private country club, Frankly, after walking out into this space, you will not ever want to leave. While the property is located within Valle del Sol, the oversized lot, and its unique positioning truly make this home feel a world apart, and boasts unprecedented privacy. The space is perfect for those who entertain friends and family, or for those looking for their own personal escape. The large pool is completely surrounded by pavilions, creating multiple and unique spaces for relaxing including pool lounge chairs, benches, as well as the covered, kitchen and dining area....a must see.
As you enter back into the home, perhaps after an afternoon swim, or cocktail, you can head up the stone and wood staircase to the private area on the second level. This area is host to a total of 4 bedrooms (one is currently being used as a studio), as well as a more informal tv/living room which divides the 3 bedrooms, from the master suite. While the term master is often overused in real estate, in this case, it fits perfectly. Upon entering the space, you will find an expansive room, with hardwood beams lining the rooftop, as well as unique, handcarved and imported, wood columns, that separate the bedroom, from a private living or tv room within the master. The bedroom also offers abundant natural light with sliding ventilation doors from the bedroom, and floor to ceiling glass windows in the living area. There is an enormous master bathroom, complete with inset jacuzzi tub, dual vanities, a walk in shower, and of course, spacious master closet.
This particular residence is, as its name depicts, a true retreat from the daily hustle and bustle, combining the perfect recipe of convenience, luxury, privacy and architecture.
