Property Description

Nestled in a private, park-like setting on 1.46 exquisitely manicured acres on Historic Sunset Road, this all-brick French Provincial Ranch offers enduring elegance and superior craftsmanship in every detail throughout its nearly 7,000 sq ft. Nationally renowned Architect Jack Arnold designed this sprawling six bedroom home to flow gracefully between expansive rooms, while also capturing the warmth and comfort of home. Stepping into the foyer the openness and dramatic details are sure to impress with magnificent 12' high ceilings, stately columns, eight-stage crown molding and luxurious Travertine marble flooring. The opulent formal dining boasts custom hand-painted fine art murals on the walls- a showpiece by Los Angeles based Fine Artist Richard Schaad. The main living area also includes a large living room with a regal fireplace, music room/library and a service bar that includes a sink, refrigerator and custom glassware cabinetry. Sure to inspire one's inner chef, the heart of the home is the gourmet kitchen, complete with a beautiful brick fireplace, wall of windows overlooking the grounds, a generously sized tiered island with breakfast bar and copper prep sink, walk-in pantry, solid 5" cherry plank flooring, ample custom cabinetry, gorgeous granite counters and a high-end appliance package that includes two cabinet-faced Bosch dishwashers, a warming drawer, built-in Subzero refrigerator and a Dacor dual-fuel six-burner range with gas cooktop and convection oven. The 31 x 28 great room is crowned by an 18' high cathedral ceiling and solid pine reclaimed beams and offers a commanding floor-to-ceiling natural stone custom masonry fireplace! The owner's suite rests in a separate wing of the home with enchanting views of the outdoors, ensuring quiet enjoyment and privacy. The suite includes dual closets AND bathrooms! The main living area also includes a second foyer with an exposed brick wall and hand-painted ceiling, a laundry room and separate drop zone with built-ins. An additional large rec room is located in the basement. There are 4+ attached garage stalls- one with a workbench, heater, mud sink, hot & cold water spigot and drain, keyless entry and a door to the enclosed dog run. The grounds are flawless and include an underground fence, full irrigation system, mature trees, professional landscaping, 42 tons of rock & hardscaping, aggregate patio and a breathtaking koi pond with waterfall! 37 Sunset Road warmly welcomes family living with exceptional privacy in the heart of town, while providing an elegant showcase for entertaining on a grand scale. The versatile floor plan and single story design provides incredible versatility to family living, retirement life and even multi-generational households. The location of this beautiful home is second to none in a prestigious and historic neighborhood that abuts two city parks and a National Audubon Society designated Important Bird Area providing abundant wildlife, mature trees and foliage.
