With panoramic vistas that stretch to the blue Pacific, extensive networks of equestrian and cycling trails, and ancient oak trees dotting the countryside, the exclusive enclave of Hidden Valley is called home by those in search of quiet living while still having easy access to all that the Greater Los Angeles area has to offer.
Here, high atop a private hillside, sits an 8,859 square foot estate whose architecture is deeply rooted in the vibrant heritage of Spain’s Mediterranean villas. Newly renovated and superbly refashioned with custom artisan fixtures, scrolling wrought-iron accents, and clay-fired ceramic tiles, the home evokes thoughts of warm summer coastal breezes that carry with it soft strains of a nearby flamenco guitar. Welcome to 2830 Potrero Road.
Once beyond the natural stone privacy wall and camera monitored security gate, the extended driveway winds upwards through the twenty-acre equestrian-accessible property towards the residence. Perfectly situated to enjoy the spectacular valley and coastal views, the home’s Spanish terra cotta tile roof, pot belly railings, and artistically crafted fountain greet you, serving as a preview of the many flourishes that await inside.
The living room anchors the spacious and flowing main floor with a dazzling double height ceiling and windows that fuse the outdoors with the richly detailed interior. Meticulously crafted and textured to capture its European roots, the room’s perfectly proportioned architectural design-elements merge to create its old-world charm: rustic open wood beamed ceilings; Mediterranean tile flooring bordered with hand-hewn walnut wood planks; and a beautifully fashioned wood burning fireplace with exquisite hand painted tile accents.
Flawlessly crafted, the adjacent dining room is open to savor the home’s ambiance while celebrating the art of leisurely dining. Adding to the experience is a nearby temperature controlled one hundred bottle wine room to accommodate the finest of vintages; keeping them perfectly stored and conveniently accessible for those special dinners. Then for an after-dining treat, retire to the acoustically perfect, three-level media theater to enjoy a favorite film.
The gourmet kitchen brilliantly balances form with function to create an aesthetically appealing workplace for the chef. A large granite island with corbel accents, custom artisan chandeliers, magnificently detailed inlaid flooring, and hand painted backsplashes seamlessly comingle with the Miele and Viking appliances, while a breakfast bar provides the perfect spot to linger for casual conversation or a quick snack.
With scrolling wrought iron hand rails and magnificent vibrant Spanish tiles, the staircase leads to the second level where three bedrooms provide full-suite accommodations.
Joining with them is the resplendent master suite – layered with pleasures and graced with refined amenities that include a private terrace with dazzling views to the farthest horizon; handsome walnut plank wood flooring accented with hand chiseled pegs; a sitting area with a wood burning fireplace; and a small kitchen for in-suite convenience.
Generously sized, the master bath is a sumptuous visual and sensual delight created to nurture relaxation. Continuing the aesthetic language of the rest of the home the room has been fashioned with wood cabinetry and variety of distinctive tile and stone patterns to heighten its spa-style amenities. The expansive steam shower with bench seating is visually open and features dual-entries that provide separate preparation and toweling areas. The free standing, deep-soaking tub is centrally located, anchoring the room’s beautifully presented symmetry.
The home’s rear grounds have been kept open and unobstructed, allowing for spectacular views of the countryside by day and dramatic crimson sunsets at dusk. A fully equipped outdoor kitchen with a wrap-around granite bar perfectly complements the nearby sparkling Pebble Tec pool and spa, and the lounging, dining, and view decks entice you to bask in the warm sun. Or if you’re a sports enthusiast, try a game of basketball on the Sports Court. After all, at 2830 Potrero Road, it’s all there for your pleasure and enjoyment.
