1255 Commonwealth Circle

$2,499,000

The Cape Cod home has become a metaphor for relaxation, family, and a place where you can cast off your shoes while sinking into a comfortable porch rocker to be yourself.Welcome to 1255 Commonwealth Circle.

Beyond the private gates of Hidden Valley Estates in Westlake Village, craftsmanship and artisan skills merge to form a superb home that evokes the seaside warmth and charm of the Hamptons: dormer windows on a steeply pitched roof – white crisp lines and bead-board ceilings –rich walnut parquet and wide-plank flooring. These traditional design elements have been masterfully fused with custom accents to provide a home created for luxurious yet comfortable living.

In the kitchen you’ll experience the home’s Cape Cod roots through the extensive use of oversized windows that welcome in the sunlight; cream-colored Carrera marble countertops; and an abundance of crisp white cabinets. The only thing missing is the delicious aroma of clam chowder simmering on the stainless steel, six-burner stovetop by Viking.

For casual dining, the kitchen provides a comfortable breakfast nook with bench seating, lined by sliding French doors that open to one of several outdoor terraces. Or for more elegant entertaining the formal dining room hits the mark, perfectly accented by wainscoting and serviced by a convenient butler’s pantry complete with a Carrera marble work station and its own wine cooler/refrigerator.

In keeping with the style, the downstairs living area integrates the traditional Cape Cod galley hallway. This encourages a comfortable passage between the rooms that include an elegant office/library featuring built-in custom walnut bookcases along with a Sahara marble and walnut fireplace; an adjacent billiard/game room; and a sun-drenched family room with fireplace, sliding French doors, custom window treatments, and a handsomely crafted built-in walnut entertainment center.

Accessed by both front and rear stairways, the second floor continues the home’s form and function with each of the 5 bedrooms enjoying the convenience of a private bath. The master bedroom suite offers a reclusive area where you can relax on a private balcony to savor the hillside views; workout in a personal gym; or refresh in a master bath featuring two walk-in closets, elegantly crafted cabinetry, and a deep-soaking tub along with a spacious shower.

The rear grounds showcase an assortment of striking landscaping elements including lush Wisteria vines cascading from the yard’s arbor, colorful Camilla bushes, and delicate ivy in an intricate lattice design artfully wrapping the walls. For fun and relaxation there’s a sparkling dual level pool/spa, children’s play area, several conversation terraces, and a fabulous grilling station & bar where outdoor cooking and entertaining can be enjoyed.

The Hamptons is more than a place, it’s a way of life: where grace and refinement seamlessly merge with comfort and charm. 1255 Commonwealth Circle expertly captures that lifestyle in a California setting as it carries on the reputation of the great Cape Cod homes that have preceded it.
