At 8175 San Lucas Drive in coveted Friendly Hills, a sophisticated Mid-Century modernist ranch home on more than half an acre has been thoroughly and sensitively updated for the 21st Century. Period appropriate finishes combine with luxurious amenities to stunning effect.
Past a breeze-block alcove entrance and a vibrant red front door, an ingenious split-level plan unfolds before you. A spacious sunken living room is outfitted in beautiful, hand-distressed White Oak flooring and anchored by a massive floor-to-ceiling sandstone fireplace with dramatic black steel inset detail. Clerestory windows and large expanses of glass flood the space in natural light. Directly adjacent is the formal dining room, placed to enjoy an impressive view of the living room below and convenient direct access to the kitchen.
In the sleek and newly renovated kitchen, custom walnut cabinetry topped with bright white Ceasarstone countertops surround all new, top-of-the-line appliances, including a Thermador professional gas range, dishwasher and vent hood, Frigidaire side-by-side refrigerator/freezer, and built-in Summit wine fridge. Newly laid, era-correct Brazilian slate-tile flooring carries from the open-plan kitchen and adjacent family room past original freestanding Malm fireplace and on to the beamed ceiling den.
Expansive window walls, newly installed aluminum sliding doors, and indoor planters blur the distinction between indoors and out. Master bedroom with en suite bathroom faces the private yard and an enclosed patio with a view.
An ideal floorplan, with two additional guest bedrooms plus full bath on one end of the home, and a 4th guest/mother-in-law bedroom, bath, and laundry room at the other. Storage is abundant, and beautiful wide-plank white oak flooring has been laid throughout. The freshly renovated bathrooms have Duravit fittings, Hansgrohe faucets, custom built vanities and, in another nod to the era, uncommon mosaic stone surrounding-tiles.
An expansive yard has areas of sun and shade for entertaining or play, plus a large patio and fully renovated kidney-shaped pool. The spacious three-car garage is accessed via a long circular drive. Well sited in close proximity to the Arroyo Pescadero and Greenway Trails, with hiking and biking paths, many fine dining and shopping amenities, and in an excellent, award-winning school district.
