Run, don’t walk, to this stunning Santa Teresa neighborhood home on the market for the first time.
Pride of ownership is evident in this meticulously maintained and beautifully updated home at 201 Arequipa Court that prominently sits at the end of a cul-de-sac on about a quarter acre. Its curb appeal will immediately grab your attention, while the more than 2,563 square feet of living space on two levels and an expansive outdoor mecca will continue to impress.
Built by Arcadia, a premier homebuilder, the home enjoys a peaceful setting, surrounding hillside views, and convenient proximity to shopping, restaurants, freeway access, parks, and top-rated schools.
This home features five bedrooms and three bathrooms on two levels with a main-level guest room and full bathroom. The bathrooms are updated with stylish tile and fixtures. There are dual-pane windows, plush carpet, decorative millwork and trim, travertine, hardwood floors, a fresh palette of wall paint, crown molding, Hunter Douglas Silhouette blinds, recessed lighting, and closets with cedar floors.
Behind the double-door entry and travertine-tiled foyer are the elegant yet comfortable formal rooms featuring plush carpeting and crown molding. A large picture window in the living room frames a view of the front gardens. One of two Swarovski crystal chandeliers illuminates the adjacent formal dining room.
Completely gutted and updated, the chef’s kitchen and its features are sure to delight cooks of all levels. An expanded garden window over the sink frames a beautiful view of the backyard gardens and welcomes lots of natural light into the space. The kitchen features granite counters, a decorative backsplash, a peninsula island/breakfast bar with stylish pendant lights, recessed lighting and a generous supply of custom cabinets. Stainless appliances include a Miele dishwasher and five-burner cooktop, and GE Monogram dual ovens and refrigerator.
The adjacent casual dining area also has a view of the backyard. Step down onto a hardwood floor in the family room. A custom-designed gas fireplace including a crafted mantel and a marble surround anchors this popular gathering space. Slide open the glass doors for convenient access to the backyard space.
The master bedroom, located upstairs, enjoys a front-facing view of the mountains. There are two large closets with custom-built organizers, and a bathroom updated with wainscot tile and an oversize shower with a seamless glass door.
Three additional bedrooms have generous-size closets. They share a large bathroom with a tub/shower combination.
The generous quarter-acre level lot offers lots of space to entertain, play and relax in the peaceful surroundings. A wide and paved side yard is ideal for a sports court or parking for a boat, RV, or extra car. Towering shade trees and garden beds wrap around the lush lawn and expansive deck that also features a hot tub. Pathways meander along the garden. There is plenty of room to further customize with a pool, an outdoor kitchen, a children’s play area and more.
Additional features include updated dual HVAC, a three-car garage completely finished with an epoxy floor and overhead storage, laundry room with cabinetry, updated water heater, exterior trim, security alarm/sensors, and front and back automated irrigation systems.
