Sensational single-story home in The Ridges.
A view of the front courtyard of this contemporary home in the guard-gated Boulder Ridge subdivision of The Ridges allows only a hint of what lies beyond the massive metal-studded entry gate. Beyond the entry courtyard, the modern light-filled interior beckons a visitor to enter into a world of spacious rooms and private spaces that continue to surprise and delight. The view beyond is of a seamlessly interwoven rear yard that is naturally inviting. An expansive great room is the anchor of the spacious floor plan, with a kitchen, dining space, wet bar, and master bedroom radiating from the central core. Interior decor is soothing but never dull, with taupe, grey, and ivory tones predominating. Darker wood kitchen cabinetry and accent shelving complement tall wood interior doors and light-toned random plank flooring in public spaces. Polished black granite is used for kitchen and wet bar counters, with a counterpoint of stacked stone for interior columns and an accent wall. An interior and exterior fireplace both add real and figurative warmth to the modern design. Broad expanses of window walls make the transition from interior to outside effortless. Outdoor living and entertaining happen naturally, with an outdoor grilling station and several seating and dining areas extending across a stone-paved patio. A semi-detached casita is included in the home's 4,000-plus square feet. There are a total of four bedrooms and five baths, with garage space for three cars.
