It's time to move on! This one-of-a-kind property is listed at the appraised value 3+ years ago and exemplifies old world craftsmanship with contemporary refinement. This is an amazing opportunity- the Seller has over $3.4M invested in this incredible home and grounds. There is amazing attention to detail throughout this home that must be seen to appreciate. The home was originally designed and built by renowned home designer, Paden Prichard for himself. Paden incorporated an Italian 16th century stone fireplace, numerous stain glass windows, chandeliers, sconces and fixtures from his personal collection of antiques into his design. The kitchen was featured in American Homestyle Magazine as a modern kitchen with old world details. The cherry table, modeled after late 18th century European designs, has a hollow leg for electrical cords and lights. The kitchen was also noted for its 4 possible cooking options (6-burner gas range, double ovens, wood-fired oven, and microwave), glass-fronted upper cabinets, and convenient access to everything in the kitchen workspace.
In 2007, the home was re-modeled for entertaining keeping in the original style with Paden Pritchard's assistance. An addition was built incorporating deluxe modern conveniences including 2 copper sinks, double-drawer dishwasher, ice-maker, refrigerator, double-drawer freezer, kegerator, microwave and beautiful custom black walnut bar. The bar opens into a spacious Mediterranean-style "loggia" with walls of windows and doors for indoor/outdoor entertainment, and a grand wood-burning fireplace. Near the bar is a large capacity climate-controlled wine storage room, cozy private theater room, and beautiful tile bathroom.
The luxurious master suite on the main level features a gas fireplace and a new cedar deck overlooking the beautifully landscaped private setting. There are 2 walk-in closets and a dressing room. Upstairs are 2 large bedrooms, 2 luxurious granite and tile bathrooms, and a spacious office area with room for several work stations. The office is accented with lots of windows, skylights, built-in file storage and wet bar.
This custom craftsman home enjoys end-of-the-road privacy behind a gated entry. The tranquil retreat was landscaped by Master Arborist Terrill Collier, for himself, with a large diversity of trees and shrubs along view corridors and paths. The 100's of species include fruit trees, berries, large fir and oak trees, and decorative landscape plantings. If wine is your passion, the property has vineyard soils, southerly slopes and other vineyards are planted nearby. A fenced meadow, seeded to wildflowers for honey bee habitat, was previously used as llama pasture.
The property was designed to be self-sustaining in case of emergency. A built-in back-up generator and wood-fired furnace are available in the event of power outages. There is also an on-site cistern storing water for fire suppression.
