An extraordinary one-story traditional ranch house, nestled in the heart of The Covenant, originally designed by noted architect Edgar V. Ullrich and completely renovated and restored in 2014. This was the last home designed by Ullrich in 1954. While the house is historically significant (Mills Act in place) and set upon park-like 2.72 flat acres, the designer-owner has done an amazing job of modernizing the entire 1,943 sq ft, 3-bedroom main house and huge 3-room guest house that was once the original stables. This private enclave will soothe your soul with unimaginable elegance, serenity, and sophisticated spaces. The scale of each room is perfect and the house lends itself to numerous lifestyles. Detailing and features include living room with hand hewn beamed ceiling, radiant-heated new Arizona Buckskin flagstone floors throughout, marble countertops, Waterworks bathroom tile and fixtures, wood screen doors, new exterior landscaping, 100 gallon drinking water tank and with supply line installed, custom lighting throughout, new outdoor shower room. French doors in the master, living, and dining room lead you out to the large patio and back yard full of succulents, fire pit, water feature and meditation garden. Follow the private pathway up to the 1,197 sq. ft. Casita with new kitchenette and wood burning fireplace. Acreage includes, orange, avocado and loquat trees, and mustard seed meadow. A tree-lined drive leads you to the roundabout driveway, 2 car garage, and adobe brick breezeway. There is a new septic system, installed in 2014 with sewer in the street for future consideration.
