Inspired by Mediterranean elegance, created with an instinctive perception of life’s pleasures, and finished with a flair for the remarkable 955 Vista Ridge is an extraordinary home where around each corner your every wish seems to be answered.
Constructed on a doublewide lot in the prestigious private community of North Ranch, 955 Vista Ridge is a luxurious yet accessibly comfortable home defined by a wealth of spectacular custom design elements. Inspiring Birdseye maple woodwork, beautifully orchestrated architectural accents, and unique artisan flourishes combine to invigorate the senses and make the home a showcase of distinction. From the subterranean temperature-controlled wine room where your favorite vintages age behind ornately crafted wrought-iron to the spectacular two-level theater/game room with a 135” screen and acoustically perfect surround sound, the approximately 13,513 square foot, 6 bedroom, 11 bath home generously provides for your every need.
Entering the home you’re greeted by its stunning aesthetic language. A soothing palette of sage and cream is complimented by the use of exquisite inlaid travertine flooring, while bold angles are countered by softly arched contours offering a visual that carries you from room to room.
A brilliantly fashioned family room seamlessly merges with the formal living room, creating a sweeping and spacious flow for entertaining. Opening to the rest of the home through a series of archways, the two rooms are imaginatively joined by a fully equipped, wrap-around bar made of contrasting golden Birdseye maple and dark granite. Trey ceilings in each room provide soft ambient lighting to add to the expansive windows that breathe-in sunlight and views.
The spacious kitchen has been outfitted to meet even the most demanding needs of a professional chef while never overlooking the practical necessities for family living. Among the kitchen’s many amenities are four ovens, dual dishwashers, warming drawers, and a six-burner range – all by Viking. The countertops and center island have been created with stunning Tunas green granite while Birdseye maple cabinetry line the trowel finished Venetian plaster walls. A nearby formal dining room that seats sixteen is an impressive setting where the kitchen’s creations can be savored with friends.
Aesthetics, hand-made artistry, and impressive architectural detailing fuse within the home’s two-level library. This spectacular room presents itself with an abundance of graceful columns and arches, forged-iron railings, a ceiling reflecting old-world craftsmanship, and the awe-inspiring use of maple and Brazilian Anigre woods. Yet as impressive as the library is, it is also a comfortably warm and functional retreat with a fireplace, office, central reading area, and rows of shelves to house your favorite books.
For seclusion the master bedroom suite offers refined elegance as it rearticulates the beautifully sculpted lines and materials from the rest of the home. With expansive windows and soaring ceilings accompanying an open and spacious floor plan, the sumptuous oasis offers a full complement of opportunities including a gymnasium, office, and wet bar. Large dual walk-in closets with built-in cabinetry service the suite. The master bath is as equally luxurious featuring Brazilian Anigre wood cabinets, masterful stonework, a double sized shower with bench seating, a deep-soaking whirlpool tub, and for total relaxation – a dry sauna.
The magnificence of the 4.3 acre rear grounds is nothing short of amazing. Completely private and serene it offers a variety of distinctive and separate areas to enjoy a vacation-like escape. Within the expansive grounds are several lounging terraces, two fully equipped grilling/kitchen stations with a pizza oven, footbridges that cross running streams, and a regulation sized tennis court with viewing pavilion. And if you’re looking to bring out the kid in you, visit the Tropical Lagoon and pool house where a cascading waterfall welcomes you to a waterpark experience. Designed and constructed to ensconce you within a natural island environment, here you can slide down a 120’ enclosed water slide, cliff dive off a 16’ rock ledge, bask in the warm waters of the grotto spa, or just lounge and enjoy a relaxing swim in the pristine waters.
At 955 Vista Ridge the possibilities to experience life’s pleasures are endless.
