Located on the sought-after westside of the Covenant, this 7-bedroom, 14-bath masterpiece harmoniously blends natural materials with a timeless design, strategically oriented toward the scenic southwesterly views. The floor plan easily caters to both grand entertaining and intimate family gatherings and has separate bedroom wings including luxurious guest quarters which can also accommodate multi-generational living.

Recreational options include a tennis/pickleball/basketball court, sand volleyball, and easy access to the hiking and riding trails. A highlight of this property is the spectacular barn with 6 in-and-out stalls, tack room, hay storage, feed room, industrial laundry facility, full bath, and an Old West style saloon which opens up to the covered patio with BBQ and fireplace - a feature appreciated by both riders and spectators. The horse facilities, which include three pastures and a small riding ring, are accessed by a separate gated drive with easy turnaround for trailers. This brilliantly crafted home has a quality, well-designed infrastructure and all the modern amenities with new solar panels, radiant heated floors serviced by a 2,000 gallon hot water tank, app-controlled front gate, and Savant Smart Home Automation that operates all the main systems including security system and cameras, 7 HVAC zones, Lutron lighting, windows, skylights, shades/drapes, pool, spa, water features, and garage doors.
