IFyou have been patiently waiting for the ideal home to come on the market, your search may be over. The home has four bedrooms, four baths, five living areas and about 5,000 square feet (per the seller).

The residence was designed by the city's best-known architect, Luis Jauregui. All you have to do is glance at the photos above to appreciate Jauregui's trademark use of soft curving lines that give his designs so much appeal.

Extras Like A First-Floor Guest Room And A Light-filled Studio Off Master
The overall design includes an appealing layout. For example, there is a first-floor guest room, and full bath in case you have older relatives who will visit but cannot climb stairs. The master, and two large additional bedrooms are upstairs. And here is something you have not seen anywhere else. You will see a set of French doors when you walk into the master bedroom. Open them and behold&emdash;you walk into a huge, light-filled studio that can be used for an exercise/yoga space, but it's also big enough to accommodate a quiet office.

There is another "extra" space on the first floor&emdash;a large activities room where kids can roughhouse, play video games or watch movies.

Unique Land Yields Total Privacy
The house itself is a gem, but it's the 1.4 acre setting that elevates the residence to one-of-a-kind status. From the street all you see is a driveway that disappears behind a thicket of trees. The home feels like it is hidden away in a scenic valley. There are songbirds and squirrels in the trees and cute deer routinely stroll the grounds. On pleasant weekends, you can start mornings out on the terrace with fresh coffee and your iPad. Imagine having a beautiful spot for al fresco lunch. Later you can curl up in a hammock, read a book or write a letter to a friend.

Other outdoor improvements include a firepit, garden shed and if you like to stay in shape, you will love the sport court for playing basketball and paddle tennis. Add some lights in the trees, play festive music, and you can use the sport court for a big party while you dance under the stars. You can also walk straight from the back yard on to the hike and bike trails.

Recent Improvements Except One
There is only one possible catch to this transaction. The owner has upgraded the terrace areas, added wood floors in living areas, improved the kitchen, and they just completed exterior painting and replaced all siding with HardiPlank. However, you will likely want to update all bathrooms at some point. Please pass if you cannot oversee this kind of work.
Here is your chance to live in a home that looks like those you see in magazines. The setting is private, and the new price has now gone from $950,000 to $750,000. The home is vacant, on a lockbox and easy to show. To see, please call your agent. The seller is represented by Stan Barron Properties at 512.626.4911.
