1848 Collingswood Court
Make 1848 Collingswood Court your private luxury retreat. This elegant estate, off a hidden cul-de-sac in trendy North Ranch, ensures total privacy in a magnificent 6191 square foot, 5 bedroom, 6 bath villa on over 2 acres of peace and tranquility. Once you enter through the wrought iron gates, you are welcomed by a verdant Mediterranean garden, punctuated by the welcoming sound of a Baroque fountain that graces the circular drive. The lush landscape embraces the luxurious Italianate villa that bids you to enter and explore.
Opulent and Gracious Living
The exceptional layout of this enticing and spacious home, invites North Ranch mountaintop breezes to dance through its serene, light-filled rooms. Rich polished woods, stylish finishes and textures of marble and stone, burnish the senses. The stately grand foyer welcomes with its sensuous curving stairway and classic chandelier. To the left is the well-appointed library or convertible home office, warmed by its own stone hearth. Just beyond is the sumptuous formal living room, graced by its spectacular marble fireplace and lush silk brocade draperies that frame the exterior views. Decorative beams accentuate both the formal and informal living areas of this inviting home. Turn right from the foyer to access the informal family quarters where you’ll relax at the built-in bar, watch TV or listen to music and enjoy the breezes that waft through open windows. The richly appointed ground floor powder room is readily accessible, and can also be entered directly from the backyard.
Casual and Formal Dining
Meals are prepared in the gourmet chef’s kitchen anchored by an expansive red granite island and tasteful inlays that accent the marble backsplash. Rustic travertine-tiled floors tie the kitchen to the informal family-sized nook that can open up to the inviting backyard. The oversized built in refrigerator, and professional-grade appliances will tempt both the novice cook and professional chef. For more formal occasions, the regal dining room is stately with its silk-covered walls, lavish silk draperies, crystal chandelier and travertine floor. The tableside, 300-bottle, temperature-controlled, walk-in wine room, can also be accessed through the kitchen. Decorative tray ceilings enhance these spaces, not only in the formal dining room, but in the kitchen and nook area as well.
The Great Outdoors
The backyard setting is well proportioned for casual or more formal entertaining. A fully equipped outdoor grilling area makes entertaining friends, family and guests effortless. Natural stone pavers surround the pool, spa and outdoor lounge and dining areas. A stacked stone and granite sideboard makes serving from the prep area easy. The backyard landscaping includes a separate formal garden amidst the more informal feel of a Mediterranean country estate. The grassy areas are outdoor rooms in themselves looking out over the rolling Simi Hills. Beyond the manicured yard, the estate includes plenty of acreage for additional gardens, private vineyard or orchard. A meandering walkway behind the house invites a casual stroll down a woodsy garden path – over a bridge, past a koi pond, to the trickling waterfall that you glimpsed from the dining room.
Climb the stairs and you’ll enter a private family sitting room through which you can enter the Master Suite to the right or the family bedrooms to the left. The Master Bedroom has double width French doors that open onto a private backyard-viewing balcony. The luxury suite has its own grand fireplace, built-in cabinetry and walk-in closets. The opulent master bath features travertine floor tiles and countertops, with a pedestal bathtub in its own light-filled alcove overlooking the backyard. Decorative ceilings heighten the architectural integrity of the rooms, and an intricate mosaic tapestry is featured in the separate double rain-faucet shower enclosure. A beautiful and comfortable guest suite is located on the villa’s main floor, featuring the same sophisticated finishes that make this house distinctive. Your guests will reside in the lap of luxury if only for one night – or for an extended stay.Three additional family bedrooms are located on the second floor each with its own adjoining full bath. These mini suites all feature ample closet space and well-chosen bath amenities.
