This spectacular home near Bishop Arts is updated to perfection while maintaining the true aesthetic of the time period. This very cool home features a full copper roof, incredible interior stonewalls, wooden ceilings and a Zen garden! The exterior has a dramatic impact with juxtaposing angles, sharp lines, and artistic sculptures. An original large cut marble stone floor greets you in the entryway and flows to the living room. This home is ideal for social gatherings and entertaining with a dining room centered around the wood-burning fireplace. The designer kitchen boasts custom oak cabinets, terrazzo countertops, Sub-Zero appliances, a Wolf range, the commercial grade Wolf Vent-a-Hood, and a built-in microwave. Beautiful and original light oak hardwoods highlight the living area, while the warmth of carpeting flows down the hallway and master bedroom.  The translucent doors to the California Closets integrate with the design of your home for a cohesive overall look along with custom built-ins throughout the home! The guest bathroom has ample space and a Japanese soaking tub, indicative of this time period. The other two bathrooms are updated with frameless showers, and marble countertops. Pella sliding doors lead out to a simply gorgeous backyard featuring 50+ year old cedar and live oak trees, a covered patio with ample seating areas, a goldfish pond and waterfall, a custom dog door built in for your furry friend, vegetable garden boxes, room for a pool, and a 12’ horizontally stacked board on board fence around the perimeter for privacy. Also included is designer lighting throughout and other updates include a new 3-ton Trane with a hepafilter. The owners were careful to maintain the home's original character while making designer upgrades to accommodate modern life and stay true to the style. The residence is the epitome of mid-century modern chic and will sure to attract the most discriminating buyers.
