Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac near Serrano Golf Course’s ninth hole, this beautiful El Dorado Hills home offers privacy, multi-generational living possibilities and room to entertain.
The three-story home has an elevator accessible on all levels and large windows that offer gorgeous views of the golf course and oak landscape. The main level lives like a single-story with the kitchen, living space and master suite.
The chef’s kitchen features custom cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and two islands — a prep island with a sink and a dining island where guests can chat while cooks plate the appetizers. Need to prepare a menu? Use the kitchen’s built-in desk to write down that shopping list and store purchases in the roomy walk-in pantry. There’s also a butler’s pantry and wine fridge.
When it’s time to sit down and eat, you have options — the charming breakfast nook, the formal dining room on the other side of the wall or outside. The eating nook has access to the front wrap-around balcony and there’s a nearby door to the backyard.
The kitchen blends with the great room, a bright space with a soaring ceiling, built-in shelves and cabinets and a corner fireplace. Glass doors open to the covered loggia and amenity-filled backyard. The flagstone patio has a soothing water feature flanked by two gas urns, an outdoor kitchen with bar seating and dining space plus an open seating area around a gas fireplace. Get active on the sports court or putting green and relax in the personal spa. An oak tree border between the golf course and the backyard, which sits lower than the surrounding landscape, provides extra privacy.
The master suite has back patio access and features lush carpet, built-in cabinets and a fireplace. The master bathroom has a step-up jacuzzi tub, walk-in shower, his-and-hers sinks plus a spacious walk-in closet and built-in chest of drawers.
The main level has travertine flooring at the entry and hardwood in other rooms. Also on this level are a home office with a murphy bed and private balcony, the laundry room, a mudroom (with an extra freezer) that has access to the one-car garage in the back of the home — a great set up for the person bringing in the groceries as it’s right next to the kitchen — as well as two half-baths and a front sitting room that could be an extra office or library. Many of the rooms feature unique light fixtures.
The home’s lower level has a quiet guest suite with a large window that showcases a front fountain, a full bathroom, a bonus room with a wet bar and built-in cabinets that has outdoor access to a covered seating area, a temperature-controlled wine room and storage space for all those holiday decorations and high school yearbooks. There’s also access to the second garage — a two door garage that can accomodate three vehicles.
On the home’s top floor are three bedrooms. The front bedroom has its own bathroom en suite and a hidden storage area behind a built-in bookcase. The back bedrooms feature sunlit window seats and share a jack-and-jill bathroom. There’s also a linen closet, built-in cabinets and a cozy deck that looks over the backyard.
The sloped front yard has colorful shrubs and mature trees surrounding the winding stairs that lead from the street. A staircase takes guests from the driveway to the impressive glass front door.
Residents in the gated Serrano community (which has a homeowners’ association) enjoy miles of walking trails, a country club and golf course.Published in
