Home Of The Week
21 Old Ranch Road
Designed for comfort, luxury and beauty, this elegant residence commands breathtaking views over rooftops and treetops to the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island and glorious year-round sunsets. Handsome Mediterranean styling blends with timeless coastal-contemporary interiors realized with extensive 2016 renovations by Orange County’s top custom builder and interior designer.
Situated on a promontory behind the gates of exclusive Bear Brand Estates, this remarkable home combines generous space, lavish light and stunning details inside and out for both relaxed family living and dazzling entertaining. Through the grand entry, with its dramatic, sweeping staircase, a series of wide archways lead to a gorgeous living room with 20+ foot ceilings, a majestic fireplace and a wall of windows with views of the brand new pool and the panorama beyond. Created with the latest design trends and floor plan functionality, expansive living areas offer multiple formal and casual spaces. A downstairs office has magnificent built-in cabinetry, and temperature-controlled wine storage accommodates hundreds of bottles. The brand-new kitchen is highlighted with Copenhagen granite, mascarpone-tone cabinets, plus Dacor, Fishel, Paykel and Sub-Zero appliances. A downstairs bedroom has en-suite bath.
On the second level, rich African-wood floors, coffered ceilings and beautiful metal work add to the classic appeal of the spaces. A hidden staircase leads to the luxurious master suite by way of an oversized loggia/sitting room with fireplace and serene ocean views. The spa-like master bath has a see-through fireplace, exotic wood cabinetry and oversized skylights. Three additional bedrooms have en-suite baths, walk-in closets and views from every window. An open loft connects the bedrooms with a guest house with polished-wood trussed ceilings, kitchenette, en-suite bathroom, and another balcony.
Manicured, completely private grounds invite outdoor entertaining and promise serene days and starlit nights by the pool. A resplendent residence of impeccable design.
