Sotheby's International Realty - Santa Paula, CA

Imagine a lush 44 acre West Ventura County avocado and lemon ranch united through the cooperative efforts of a highly respected architectural firm and builder. The property consists of a 1990 built 9,400 square foot, two-story custom contemporary main house with foreman's residence, tennis court, pool, a palm-lined driveway leading to a circular porte-cochere' entry and two additional houses, currently rented. This prime and enviable location sits on the northwest corner of the Ventura and Santa Paula city boundaries, and being slightly elevated, enjoy slightly warmer temperatures during winter cold spells. In the main house, you have 4 bedrooms 5.5 baths, two large offices, elevator, formal living and dining rooms, custom woodwork by Gary Bulla, a 2 story high sky-lit and wood-beamed kitchen with granite counters and woodblock and granite island with a beam-mounted pot and pan rack. The light-filled high beamed ceiling family room comes with fireplace, hearth and mantel, a built-in TV, and corner interior garden area with views to the pool and tennis court beyond. You enter the master bedroom through a private study with fireplace. Custom wood drawers and shelves dominate the center of the master closet. A spacious and beautifully tiled master bathroom comes with a sauna, or step outside into a private jacuzzi style in-ground spa. There is generous use of imported French limestone tiles both inside and along exterior walkways and entry. The colorful landscaping is highlighted by over 100 plumeria from around the world. Truly a gem waiting to be discovered.
