Situated on a beautiful oversized lot in the Volk Estates neighborhood of University Park, this classic Mediterranean home is a peaceful retreat in the city. Perfect for family living and entertaining, the home has a casual California feel throughout. The large front yard, dotted with trees and lush landscaping, leads to a courtyard entry with fountain, fireplace, and adjacent putting green! Upon entering, the foyer is flanked by the living and dining rooms, each with a beautiful stone fireplace and adjacent to a temperature controlled wine room and one of several charming courtyards. The greatroom has a vaulted ceiling with gorgeous beams, stone fireplace, builtin cabinets and sets of french doors overlooking the rear porches, patios, yard, and pool. The family room opens to the large cook’s kitchen with island, stainless appliances, breakfast area, and sitting area with fireplace. The downstairs master suite is a true private retreat, comprised of a sitting room with fireplace, breakfast bar, and large bedroom with fireplace which opens to its own covered porch and views the rear grounds and pool. The master bath has his and her vanities, separate shower and tub, and huge closet. Upstairs, there are 3 additional bedrooms, each with a private bath and with charming balconies close by. There is a large upstairs gameroom/media room in the central part of the second level, and a third floor that may be used as another living area, office, exercise room, or great storage. The main laundry room is on the second level, and there is an auxiliary laundry area on the first floor. The attached four car garage is an incredible flexible space, which serves as a garage and a sport court with a double story ceiling that accommodates basketball goals and can be used for indoor/outdoor entertaining with its doors that open on both sides. The covered porch off the greatroom and kitchen is an extended living area with adjacent cooking area and views of the patio and outdoor fireplace beyond. The detached guest house has sliding doors that completely open up to the yard and pool. The downstairs living area has a fireplace and adjacent full kitchen and bath, and a large upstairs room with full bath. A rear motor court expands the versatility of the many uses of the outdoor living spaces and guest house. A truly exceptional property!
