To call this beautiful Estate Los Arboles home in McCormick Ranch a simple remodel would be a disservice. This Camelot Embassy model has been utterly transformed from a dated time capsule with great bones and potential into a modern Tuscan showplace. This was no slap-dash investor fix and flip with the same formulaic greys and whites that everyone else is currently buying at Remodels R Us, but a labor of love crafted to the demanding tastes of an owner who actually lived in the home.
The wall between the living room and family room was opened up to give the home a more modern, great room feel. The sunken living room, which was common in homes of this vintage across McCormick Ranch, was filled in. The kitchen was opened up to the family room … and oh, what a kitchen it is! All new (in 2014) cabinetry with loads of storage, slab granite counters, stainless steel appliances and vent hood, pendant and recessed lighting, a large walk-in pantry, breakfast nook with bay windows and more make it a must see.
Two gunslot windows on either side of the fireplace were replaced and expanded to bring in more natural light and take advantage of the view of the inviting backyard.
Where there was once a center atrium and bar, a huge walk-in master closet (complete with an organization system) now stands. The original closet was removed, paving the way for an expanded and fully remodeled master bathroom with a separate tub and shower. Anyone familiar with the limitations of late 1970s and early 1980s construction knows exactly what a rarity it is to find a decent sized master bath OR a generous master closet in these parts, let alone BOTH!
Indeed, this home is a unicorn.
Versailles pattern tumbled travertine stone flooring stretches throughout the entire home. Plantation shutters cover the windows, not that excessive sun is an issue with the ideal North/South exposure on a prime corner lot. Elevated ceilings greet you at the front door, accentuating the modern feel of the architecture.
The fourth bedroom was converted to a den/office; its entryway relocated to the front foyer. Even the laundry room is a work of art with new (2014) cabinetry, granite counter, and sink.
The backyard is, itself, a great place to entertain under the large covered patio, or cool off with a dip in the pool. Not relaxing enough? Slip into the in-ground spa that underscores one simple, but not to be overlooked asset this home has over other properties across McCormick Ranch: natural gas.
Estate Los Arboles is one of the ONLY pockets of McCormick Ranch that is serviced by Southwest Gas, meaning you can actually heat a pool here without spending a small fortune on propane. Yes, I’m looking at you, winter visitors!
With immediate neighborhood access to the walking path / greenbelt that stretches throughout the Ranch, it is a quick stroll to Comanche Park to the East, and the booming shopping center of Paseo Village to the West. New establishments like The Vig, Luci’s at the Grove (currently under construction – slated to open in the fall), Starbucks, and LA Fitness join community favorites like Lox Stock & Bagel to turn this once-sleepy center into one of the most vibrant hubs in the area. And you don’t even need a car to get there!
This is a unique opportunity to take advantage of a unique property. Don’t miss it!
