EXPANSIVE CONTEMPORARY IN PRIVATE CUL-DE-SAC
Perfectly located with proximity to shopping, nightlife, schools, and culture, 6709 Arroyo Court offers the total package: space galore for living and entertaining, a full acre of lush landscaping, an in-ground pool, and seclusion from the daily hustle and bustle. Boasting hardwood floors throughout, six bedrooms and four full and three half baths, this home bespeaks fine solid construction and timeless style.
The charmingly designed front exterior draws you in with its softly bubbling water feature, well-cultivated plantings and a curving driveway that accommodates several cars. You enter a large foyer with high ceilings, tile floors and a coat closet; here you immediately experience the open sight lines, good flow, and sense of space that characterize the home. From this vantage point, you can also see the walkway to the bedrooms above as well as each wing of the first floor.
A massive living room is straight ahead. With its high ceilings, hardwood floors and working stone fireplace, one of four in the home, this is both a relaxing and grand room. Doors from this room lead to a fabulous flagstone wraparound balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. The spacious formal dining room is to the left. With its tall windows, beautiful views and high ceiling, this is the spot for warm evenings centered on good food and friendship.
Next to the dining room is an enormous updated kitchen, with granite counters with high end double dishwashers and ovens, a built-in microwave, gas cooktop and Sub-Zero refrigerator. The working zone opens to a large breakfast area with room for a big table and a computer station. The kitchen also has access to the wraparound balcony. Adjacent to the kitchen is an ample laundry room with a powder room.
A large, yet cozy family room occupies the right wing of the home. It too has a working fireplace and two seating areas, and is close to a full bath. Up two steps from the family room, one finds a delightful library, with plantation shutters, built in bookcases, a large built in office area and maple cabinetry—just made for curling up with a book or working from home. There is also a powder room on this side of the home, along with a back staircase.
Up a grand staircase, you find four bedrooms. The baronial master bedroom has a fireplace, sitting room, large ensuite bath and a walk-in closet. Continuing into the hallway, there is a large storage closet and two more big bedrooms that share a Jack and Jill bathroom. Another full bath services the hallway, while yet another bedroom overlooking the front of the house and equipped with a walk-in closet completes this floor.
Another incredible layout awaits on the lower level. As you descend the stairs, you see a calm and restful slate-floored interior space which gives onto a generous recreation space, with, a large powder
room, a step-down family room with a fully-equipped wet bar, a fireplace, large seating area, built-ins and an exercise room with equipment that conveys. In addition, this level offers lots of extra storage, a workshop and a carpeted bonus bedroom with a full bath and large customized closet. From this level, you can walk out onto a lovely loggia adjacent to the back yard.
The backyard of this home really shines. The peaceful, quiet, fenced space houses the inground pool, mature trees and colorful blooms. The balcony is big enough to host festive events for at least a hundred people, while the lower level loggia lends an Italianate feel to the exterior. Along with the attached two car garage, there is an additional freestanding garage that can also fit two vehicles. Everything about 6709 Arroyo Court says, “welcome home.”
