Alan & Anne Vorenberg
In the hills north of the Plaza, this secluded, spacious, light-filled retreat has been extensively remodeled, and its unique floor plan places three comfortable bedroom suites and open living spaces on the upper level, with a recreation room and sauna, an office/bedroom, a gym, a finished two-car garage, and a workshop on the lower level. Abundant energy-efficient windows and skylights allow the home to revel in the character and colors of each season. Walls of windows and a deck offer views through the greenery toward the surrounding hills, blue skies, dramatic clouds, sunrises, and sunsets. An artful powder room and a custom-outfitted kitchen make entertaining effortless. On the lower level, an office/bedroom, two three-quarter baths, and a recreation room with a fireplace, a laundry closet, numerous built-ins, and a wet bar could easily serve as guest quarters or an in-law suite with a private entrance. This space opens to a delightful patio and courtyard with a water feature, a fireplace, and a nearby hot tub. Lush with mature trees and swaths of emerald grass, the gated two-acre property is secure, tranquil, pet-friendly, and frequently visited by wildlife. Two freestanding garages provide space for up to six vehicles, including an RV. The estate also offers such amenities and conveniences as instant hot water, air conditioning and forced-air heating, backup generators, a water harvesting system, & drip irrigation and a one-bedroom guest casita with a picturesque view.
