Highly upgraded with a desirable, contemporary color palette and custom design features, this timeless Montecito style 5 bedroom home is being offered for the first time since it was originally built! It has been very well maintained by original owners. It offers a flowing floorplan and a great location within the Harveston community. (The home is a Phase 1 build of the Christopher Homes tract.) Located mid-street in a low-traffic court, this home doesn't open direct to a view of neighboring homes; instead it enjoys a rare, open feeling as it looks towards a view of the park in the distance. It is ideally located within a short walk or bike ride to main community amenities such as the lake, lakehouse, parks, parkettes and more. The entry welcomes you to a proper foyer with medallion detailing and on to the open entertaining areas. The floorplan seamlessly transitions from an open living room and dining area to the family room and kitchen and out to the private pool-sized backyard. An in-law suite is located on the main level. You will appreciate all of the custom detailing upgrades as you move throughout this ideal home. Wood casings, coffered ceilings, trim moldings, triple crown moldings and baseboards, upgraded and remodeled bathrooms (including a whimsical surf themed bath), and a custom built-in outdoor kitchen area. The family room area is larger than found in similar models due to the owner working with the builder to utilize what is commonly a tandem parking spot in the garage as usable internal sq.ftg. instead. It is the ultimate space for casual entertaining with built in media center, surround sound speakers, and a custom bar area with kegerator. 4 bedrooms are found upstairs along with a turret/den that could be a home office/study area. Under the stairs is another converted area that once served as a home office. An additional under-stair sub closet extends the storage possibilities. The expansive master suite also has a built in media center, an upgraded master bath and a custom walk-in closet with gorgeous built-in organizers. The backyard currently features stamped concrete conversation areas and a bonus "she shed"/play-fort. The garage even features a custom built-in workbench with storage! Harveston is highly sought after for its active community environment and community amenities, proximity to local schools and sought after shopping/dining options, plus ease of access to main commuter routes. Run, do not walk, to this rare find!
