An open floor plan, modern kitchen and room for many guests make this Carnegie Way home the place to host neighborhood parties, family gatherings or a festive “just because” celebration. Inside and out, the property has space for laughter, dancing, swimming and more.
Situated on a corner in The Summit, a gated El Dorado Hills community, the property features well-manicured lawns, neat shrubbery and many trees to provide shade. Meandering steps lead to the gorgeous glass front door. The home inside is equally impressive.
The main floor has a lower-level seating area next to the foyer. Guests can take the conversation outside onto the private patio that overlooks the front yard. Up a short flight of stairs overlooking the seating area is a formal dining room with glass railing and a built-in cabinet that can store all the plates and wine glasses a host needs.
The upper level of the split-level main floor houses the great room, with impressively high ceilings, lots of natural light and a contemporary fireplace. The current homeowners recently remodeled the adjoining kitchen, turning it into a chef’s dream. The space features laminate wood flooring, granite countertops, subway tile and classic white cabinetry. There’s plenty of dining space in the kitchen with a dining bar and a breakfast nook. The kitchen also has an island with cook top, two ovens, double-door refrigerator, built-in microwave and wine fridge.
Worried about getting the groceries from the garage to the kitchen? Use the handy dumbwaiter.
Also on this level are three spacious bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. One room toward the back of the home also has back patio access via the bedroom and the bathroom, making it easy for tired swimmers to jump into the shower and clean up without tracking wet footprints all over the home. There’s plenty of storage space in each bedroom as well as the laundry room and hallway with built-in cabinets.
Upstairs is the master suite, which has a cozy sitting area, fireplace and a spacious walk-in closet. The master bathroom offers relaxation in the form of a deep, jetted tub. There’s also a walk-in shower and his-and-hers sinks.
The home’s lowers level features the bonus room, which has numerous opportunities — fifth bedroom (there’s a nice walk-in closet), game room, office, etc. The room has its own entrance and access to the four-car garage.
In addition to remodeling the kitchen, the current homeowners repainted and installed new carpets to refresh the home.
The backyard offers shade and privacy to those taking a dip in the pool and/or spa. There’s ample patio space for tables and guests as well as a fire pit and sport court. When the weather shifts, move the party indoors to the sunroom — where the adults can talk in comfort while the kids play in the water. The backyard also has tiered walls where one could plant shrubs or a garden. Palm trees and oaks provide a natural canopy.Published in
