This estate is owned & was built by a World Class Photographer & upon entering it shows, as you will see some of the most magnificent sunset, hot air ballon views possible - all framed by floor to ceiling glass windows. A long private driveway leads from the street “Via Recanto” up some 150 feet to the main house. Via Recanto is a small & private community located within the RSF Covenant. Via Recanto enjoys wider streets, all underground utilities- sewer, larger lots, great location and more. Upon entering the Foyer one sees a beautiful curved glass wall and glass doors that open to the dramatic outside entertaining area with of stone patio flooring, an inviting pool/spa and waterfall, a huge fire pit, outside cookery and dramatic sunsets and hot air balloons- fabulous views that only a chosen site like this can offer. A full regulation tennis court was also built here and tennis courts are next to impossible to get approved today so having one already is valuable. A tennis court really means you also have a scooter park, a bike course, a four square or volleyball court, and other ball games like basketball can all be played here. Or the tennis court could become a barn- can have 4 horses here. The formal Living Room and Dining room are defined by their floor to ceiling stone columns not closed in windows as the theme here was constant sunlight and spacious high voluminous ceilings- all of which have been achieved. A touch of wainscoting brings a sense of formality to the scene which is perfect. Even columns in the fireplace façade, help tie the rooms together. Steps away are the Chef’s kitchen where everything is immediately available with the finest of appliances and views to the pool and family room. A full paneled study with box beam ceilings and French doors to the outside is conveniently located adjacent to the master suite. This room too could be transformed into a media room if desired. The estate enjoys 5 bedroom in suites in the main house with the formal master suite enjoying separate his and her full baths and each have their own huge walk-in closet, features that only an owner builder can bring to the table. The Master overlooks its own private patio as well as a private inside seating area overlooking the see-thru fireplace plus a huge window seat to relax and watch the sunset. The Master Suite, two spacious bedroom suites plus an office, theater, or gym, are found on the SE corner of the house and two additional bedroom suites (could be another Master) are found on the SW side of the house. A separate room has been created as a photographer’s dark room but it can work beautifully as a WINE CLOSET as it abuts the formal dining room. The home also enjoys some 4 car garage spaces plus storage. On the SW corner of the residence one finds a fully self-contained Guest House with its own full bedroom and full bath plus a separate sitting room with fireplace and kitchenette. This estate is an exceptional piece of art that simply cannot be reproduced in today’s market at its present asking price. One of the truly unique features of this home is its ability to convert the function of one room into another which will serve to embellish the home even more- we have at least two rooms that could become a media room if desired. The grounds consist of just a bit under 4 acres and the grounds are totally fenced and gated. This is a very special property and appeals to a growing family or equally well to a couple that enjoy entertaining as the space is here either inside or out.
