Even before you reach the brick-lined front steps of 20610 Lomita Avenue, you’ll be enchanted by the tranquility and old-world charm of the quiet, tree-lined street that says “welcome home.”
Discover something special when you step into the nearly 3,000-square-foot contemporary home that embodies the quintessential California lifestyle where indoors and outdoors blend seamlessly together in a light, airy, and open space.
The house was built from the ground up in 2013 based on an open floor plan that follows feng shui and vastu principles by a custom homebuilder known for its craftsmanship, exceptional quality, integrity, and attention to detail.
The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom house sits on a 10,640-square-foot lot with a gated, fenced backyard that’s perfect for outdoor entertaining and al fresco dining. Watch light and shade dance in the zen-like outdoor oasis with mature landscaping, relaxing fountain, raised-bed garden, and numerous fruit trees, including Meyer lemon, kaffir lime, pomegranate, orange, and more.
Watch the world go by from the privacy of the sun-filled entry porch, enjoy conversations with friendly neighbors or take a five-minute walk to the historic Village of Saratoga where you can find a Michelin star restaurant, wine bars, cafes, shops, galleries and more.
A little further down the road, you can experience an authentic Japanese garden with walking paths, koi ponds and tea ceremonies at the Hakone Estate and Gardens. Or stroll over to Villa Montalvo, where locals enjoy concerts and performances in an intimate setting. Additionally, the area is surrounded by neighborhood parks and majestic mountains that offer well-maintained trails for all levels of hiking and biking.
Within walking and biking distance, you’ll also find the area’s (and some of the country’s) top-rated, award-winning schools, including Saratoga Elementary, Redwood Middle School, and Saratoga High. It’s not uncommon for families to relocate to the neighborhood so their children can attend these highly sought-after schools.
South Bay Realtor Rebecca Jepsen is particularly excited to bring this one-of-a-kind gem to the market. Chosen by the owners for her market knowledge and professional reputation, they’re also impressed by the extra measures and personal care that Jepsen offers to her clients. Not to mention, she is a resident of this coveted neighborhood!
When you walk through the door, you’ll be delighted by the home’s spaciousness thanks to the 12-foot coffered ceilings complete with uplighting and artisan moldings. The home has custom 9-foot doors, designer lighting and hand-scraped oak wood flooring throughout.
The incredible, culinary kitchen with its oversize labradorite island is truly the hub of the home. It’s perfect for the discerning chef with its top-of-the-line appliances, including a Sub-Zero Thermador fridge and six-burner range with a griddle and dual ovens. Enjoy the beautiful leather-finished EuroStone countertops and art-like mosaic backsplash. The great room features a huge family room with a cozy fireplace — perfect for entertaining on a grand scale year-round.
In addition, the home features a formal dining room, separate office, four en suite bedrooms, a powder room with travertine flooring, and a separate laundry space. All the guest bathrooms are finished with Caesarstone. The spa-like master bathroom features Calacatta marble and radiant flooring — a luxury you will enjoy each and every day!
The home is light and bright with picture windows that bring in the natural light, as well as thought-out chandeliers, sconces, and art lighting that accentuates nearly every room. The master bedroom has two walk-in closets, and the guest rooms offer ample closet and storage space.
Both the family room and the master bedroom open into the outdoor courtyard and gardens, seamlessly blending the indoors and out.
Solar panels on the roof generate most of the power used in the house so you can expect minimal electricity bills throughout the year. Ample parking includes three private spots in front of the house, three in the driveway and a two-car garage. A security alarm and a fire alarm with a built-in sprinkler system give you peace of mind that the home is protected 24/7/365.
