No expense has been spared in this breathtaking artist's residence set amid lush trees with views to Catalina Island. Exotic and contemporary, expanded and thoughtfully upgraded throughout, this rare property breathes grace and serenity. From the unsurpassed, elegant home theatre to the chef's kitchen and gardens, the current owners have absolutely mastered the art of living. Known as "La Serre," neighbors gather for engaging dinner parties here on a regular basis. Sometimes they begin in the hidden wine tasting room and cellar, others times on the large deck while enjoying stunning nightly sunset views. Walks are enjoyed along the paths of the vegetable & herb garden lined by sweet scented citrus and pomegranate trees. An ancient California pepper shades the elegant stone terrace with a classic wall fountain. A soothing waterfall spills into a koi pond which can be enjoyed from a covered outdoor space from which to relax and appreciate the magical oasis that is "La Serre." The 3,058 square feet of interior living space includes 4 bedrooms, 3.5 remodeled or added baths plus a home office, expanded living & dining room, sound-proofed home theatre with state-of-the-art sound system and Sony video projector, kitchen with built-in banquet & Wolfe range, and a butlers pantry/laundry room with a spare fridge that serves as a bar for parties. Bedrooms include three suites - with the primary to rival the nicest of luxury hotels. Not included in the square footage is a wine tasting room, fully finished & air conditioned garage which serves as an art studio and home gym, and an additional 1,000 square feet of decking off of the Master Suite. To mention a few highlights of this no-expense spared home: Extensive Lutron lighting system, televisions that drop from the ceiling, high-end built-in speakers, Brazilian hardwood flooring, tiled roof, beamed ceilings, alarm system, heated floors & towel racks. Nestled in the heart of Orange County, the North Tustin hills offer primarily custom built homes on spacious lots. This property also features unobstructed views of Catalina Island and is set in the desirable Barrett Hill neighborhood where tree-laden rolling hills offer a warm rural feeling and the quiet cul-de-sac location is a quick walk to both the award-winning middle and high schools. Come see for yourself what a great find this is!
