Exceptional Encino Oasis: Your Private Retreat South of Ventura Blvd.
Nestled on a private, secure, gated cul-de-sac, the Exceptional Encino Gem is a true masterpiece, offering a one-of-a-kind blend of style and sophistication. As you approach the entry doors, you're welcomed by the mesmerizing sight of a stunning fountain that gracefully flows along the length of the home, setting the stage for the grandeur that lies within. The moment you step through the entry, your gaze is drawn upwards to the high ceilings and skylights that bathe the spacious foyer in natural light.
The first floor of this remarkable home is designed to impress. The oversized living room features an architectural fireplace and built-in storage, all complemented by beautiful travertine floors that seamlessly transition to an inviting outdoor lounge. But what truly sets this home apart is its unique "flex space" on the first floor, which can serve as a bedroom, maid's quarters, office, conference room, in-law suite, media room, or whatever suits your needs. Tray ceilings, a separate entrance, and a full bath make this space incredibly versatile.
The heart of the home lies in the open floor plan kitchen and family room, creating the perfect atmosphere for entertaining and creating cherished memories. The large 18x26 porcelain tile floor leads you past the walk-in pantry and a built-in liquor/barware cabinet. The family room features yet another fireplace, and the entire home boasts over $35,000 in exquisite window treatments.
Convenience is key in this home, with a downstairs laundry room featuring a walk-in closet, a sink, and ample storage for all your cleaning needs. A central vacuum system adds to the ease of maintenance.
As you ascend to the second floor, you'll find three bedrooms thoughtfully situated on one side, ensuring privacy for the primary suite. The primary bedroom is nothing short of a sanctuary, complete with surround sound, captivating window treatments that exude comfort, and a custom fireplace with convenient storage for oversized pillows and comforters. The pièce de résistance, however, is the award-winning "closet of the year," as recognized by Closet Magazine. Horizontal wardrobe rods are thoughtfully protected by an overshelf, keeping dust at bay. Everything has its place, from belts and sunglasses to jewelry and shoes. The closet even holds an impressive 87 pairs of shoes, with adjustable shelves to suit your preferences.
But this exceptional home doesn't stop at the interior. The third car garage has been transformed into a storage and packing room, allowing the two-car garage to serve its primary purpose. The outdoor space is a true paradise, with hardscape, landscape, and outdoor lighting that have been architecturally designed. Now, mature privacy hedges, Ficus trees, Sycamore tree, Magnolia trees, red Maple trees, and more adorn the landscape. You'll find a lemon tree, a fig tree, and various other plantings that make this outdoor haven a sight to behold. Enjoy your evenings under the stars, whether by the water feature or in the jacuzzi, and relish the resort-like oasis that's yours to explore.
This exceptional home is not only a testament to luxury living but also offers the advantage of being south of Ventura Blvd, making it a part of the prestigious Lanai School District. Plus, it's just a short stroll away from the Valley Beth Shalom Temple and close to Gelson's and all the attractions that Ventura Blvd has to offer. This residence provides the perfect backdrop for daily excursions to the gym, salon, spa, shopping, and dining, allowing you to make the most of this extraordinary location. Don't miss the chance to make this Exceptional Encino Gem your own piece of paradise.
