The Gorgeous Transformation 15 Misty Acres in “The Ranch”

Suzanne Dyer|October 20, 2020

This stunning transformation of a dated Tudor house into a gorgeous coastal ranch holds one of my favorite kitchens.  Located in the sought after neighborhood of the "The Ranch", one of the few 24-hour guard gated communities in Palos Verdes, this home is perfectly designed for today’s Covid lifestyle with comfortable living spaces, work spaces, as well as room that could function as a school room. This elegant home is located on a serene, very private, gated and completely flat lot that is almost a half-acre with a three-car garage and parking for three more cars in the driveway. 

 

Thoughtfully designed to be an Entertainer's dream with folding glass doors in the great room/living room overlooking the pool,  an indoor-outdoor living experience can  be enjoyed all year round.  Beautiful wood floors have been installed throughout the house, as well as new recessed lighting, skylights, and all new door hardware.  The completely new kitchen offers a large island with waterfall counters and breakfast bar, custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, walk in pantry, and wine or coffee bar.  Off the kitchen is the first of the two family rooms with a fireplace with new tile surround and french doors opening to the pool area.   The large great room/living room  features vaulted ceilings and a wall of glass that opens to the newly replastered pool/spa with new pool equipment and a new gas fire pit.  Adjacent to the great room is the formal dining room perfect for large dinner parties and looking out to a large patio with it’s cascading water feature.  Also located in this patio area is an additional outdoor dining area easily accessible to the kitchen with a built-in bbq area.   Some of this home’s many upgrades include a new roof, new heating system, and upgrades to the plumbing and electrical.  Every living space of this one level home opens to a patio area to enjoy the outdoors and the amazing California weather. This house could be used as a four or five bedroom as the second family room (with play loft) could also be used as a fifth bedroom, guest suite, school room or an amazing office with a private bath.  This floor plan has so many options to create the live/work/study environment that is needed today as well as functional, serene outdoor space.  

 

Every bath in this home has been exquisitely remodeled with many featuring Restoration Hardware Cabinets, new lighting and bath fixtures, and new tile. The master suite has french doors that open to the pool area and provides easy access to the jacuzzi located just off of the master suite.  The master suite features a gorgeous spa-like bath with it’s freestanding tub, massive shower with glass enclosure, and dual vanities.   The private patio located just off the master bath is perfect for reading the paper with a quiet cup of coffee in the morning or creating your own outdoor yoga studio with it’s tranquil fountains.  A perfect escape spot for some quiet time.   The master suite is sunny and welcoming with vaulted ceilings and natural light streaming from it’s windows and french door and also features a large walk-in closet.

 

This home has so many outdoor areas to enjoy, but one of the most impressive is the large rear yard off the second family room with its sprawling lawn that has room for a batting cage, putting green, garden, or whatever your imagination can come up with.  Located within walking distance to one of the Palos Verdes award winning Immetermiate Schools and the lovely Highridge Park as well as conveniently close to Peninsula High School the Peninsula Shopping Center.   There is also easy access for commuters off the hill as it is only 25 miles from Downtown Los Angeles.
