Welcome to the prestigious 4S Ranch gated community of Ivy Gate, and an extremely rare single story Tuscan Masterpiece, perfect for creating wonderful memories for years to come. This home has beautiful stone work in front guiding you up the steps to the courtyard entrance. Notice to the right there is a 3-car garage which is ideally side-by-side and not tandem with matching colored doors adding to the rich detail of this magnificent curb appeal. Walk into the large courtyard and notice to your right one of four fireplaces throughout this home for private entertaining.
Once entering through the large double doorway the foyer gives an incredible entrance and buffer opening up to the adjacent office to the left, formal dining area to the right, and looking out toward the living room area. The living room boasts one of 4 fireplaces and an extremely cool floor pattern with travertine and marble stone.. The formal dining room to the right is ample enough for a large table and conveniently accesses the kitchen area through a very nice butler’s pantry with wine cooler and cabinet storage.
Walking down toward the main living area the extremely open floor plan provides immense counterspace in the kitchen for entertaining guests with its large granite countertop island. There is ample cabinet storage all around the island and along the perimeter. If that is not enough, a massive walk-in pantry is available as well for those big bulk Costco trips. The 6 burner cooktop along with high end appliances allow the chef in you to come to life. Throughout this area and the home there is gorgeous travertine flooring which matches perfectly with the wall and cabinetry colors giving it that perfect popping contrast. Smartly hidden within the built-in cabinetry of the family room like a 007 movie, is easy access to all of the wiring for the home theatre system. Plenty of space in case you like to have massive furniture both in the family room and the breakfast nook, or standing room for a ton of people if you prefer to entertain.
Throughout this home you will notice speakers in the ceiling from room-to-room. Back down the other corridor and then a left toward the secondary bedrooms you will walk under stylish arched hallways matching the arched doorways to each bedroom and bathroom. The powder room is nicely nestled in this location and then a wonderful bonus rec room which hubs perfectly as a teenage entertainment area with 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms connecting off of it. One of the bedrooms has its own bath, and the other bath is a Jack-and-Jill connecting the two other bedrooms, one of which has a large walk-in closet.
The Master Bedroom Suite opens with large double doors, has the fourth fireplace, a door to the backyard, a large area for a king size bed and other surrounding furniture. Walk through archways past the lavatory to the large master bath with two ample sink areas separated by a vanity. To the right is a comfy sunken tub and then further to the right corner is the gorgeously travertine and marble tiled step-in shower, which conveniently is set up without the need for a glass door giving great relief from daily scrubbing water spots for the new owner. Heading back to the left is the arched doorway into the large walk-in closet.
The backyard and side yard of this home have very nice flat grass areas, perfect for playing with the kids or entertaining a lot of family and friends. The pergola and built-in BBQ areas are so clean and done so well creating the perfect space separating the two grass areas in the backyard. From the drone you can see solar panels on the roof pointing south toward the sun, yet nicely hidden from street view so they do not to take away from the amazing curb appeal. Get yourself one of those new Tesla Model 3, S, or X electric vehicles and you can brag that they are powered by the sun!
