Located in the heart of Royal Oaks of Encino, behind the gates of this sprawling estate rests this seamless blend of classic New England aesthetics and contemporary California craftsmanship. Experience sunlight cascading throughout the Cape Cod-inspired interior, with rich French Oak floors throughout. Every detail of this newly remodeled five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom 4,400 square foot home has been carefully redone and re-imagined for the modern living experience, inspiring a sense of intimacy and splendor upon crossing the threshold. The main level offers a generous living room with a fireplace, as well as both formal dining and conversation rooms, the latter of which shares a two-sided fireplace with the kitchen’s cozy breakfast area, all of which offer picturesque outdoor views. The kitchen itself is fit for a master chef, with a beautiful Calcutta marble center island with its own sink, Wolfe oven and six burner stove, Sub Zero refrigerator, farmhouse sink and walk-in pantry. Complementing the lower level is the perfect en-suite guest bedroom/private office with its own bath, as well as an additional powder room and a separate laundry room and sink. Upstairs, each of the four bedrooms comes complete a walk-in closet and marble bath, while the master suite additionally offers an all marble bath, dual walk-ins, double sinks, an oversized shower with a rain shower head and a free-standing tub with views overlooking the lush landscaping below. There is even more to discover outside, as the 17,000 square feet of surrounding grounds feel less like a backyard and more like a private retreat with a sparkling pool, spa, fire pit and large barbecue patio area, making it the perfect space to escape or to entertain. This house offers direct access to a two-car garage, dual zone HVAC and security system.
