Home of the Week: Wine Country Estate

Just 20 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean in the southwestern part of Riverside County lay 3,000 acres of picturesque wine country. A gentle mix of awe-inspiring natural beauty, award-winning wineries, and a pleasant Mediterranean climate, Temecula Valley has built its reputation as a premier Southern California destination.


Situated amongst the rolling hills of Temecula’s renowned wine country, a white picket fence indicates your arrival for this Country Roads estate. A grand residence residing on approximately five sprawling acres waits before you. The gracious property is the epitome of luxury living exuding both traditional style and modern grace. Past the gated entrance and front driveway, a stone walkway greets you. Large front pillars make a formal statement and double entry doors lead to an expansive marble foyer with dual curved staircases flanking a beautiful crystal chandelier welcoming guests.


Recently remodeled, the home’s attention to detail is a testament to fine craftsmanship that one can marvel. Encompassing almost 5,500 square feet of refined elegance, the home features 6 bedrooms, a home office, grand family room with media center, dedicated theater room, and 6.5 bathrooms.


With the gourmet kitchen boasting state-of-the-art appliances, granite counters, and custom cabinetry, cooking is never a chore, but rather a sophisticated art form.


Beyond the home itself resides an outdoor playground fit with various enclaves to relish the wondrous Temecula Valley setting. The focal point of the backyard certainly remains the circular pool appointed with a center spa, fountains, and lush landscaping. The outdoor kitchen and ample seating seamlessly transition into alfresco dinner parties. Expansive grounds provide ample space for lawn games and exploring the countryside with a glass of full-bodied merlot in hand.


The garage is the showplace for 6 additional cars and features an approx. 1,400 square foot finished apartment on the upper level.
