Shady Canyon in Irvine, California
This exceptional custom-built French-influenced Shady Canyon estate sits prominently on an elevated lot – yet is tucked away creating a private refuge. This picturesque home with 5 bedrooms and 8 baths was built using the finest materials including reclaimed wood beams from France, distressed hickory plank flooring, extensive use of imported, hand painted tiles, antique baked clay brick, tile, marble, and limestone.
The idyllic charm unfolds immediately via walkway framed by lush foliage, to the beautiful fountain, and through an inviting door to the private entry courtyard – and continues once inside as the home is surrounded by beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces from every room. The airy chef’s kitchen - with white countertops, chic off-white cabinets and professional grade appliances opens to the large family room.
The entertaining layout offers multiple French doors and disappearing pocket door out to the lush grounds with large pool, spa, and numerous sitting and dining areas with trellises providing ample shade. Reminiscent of a quiet country house, the grounds offer the ultimate privacy with mature yet manicured landscaping and trees. For a more formal soiree the dining room and adjacent formal living space offer great ambiance with reclaimed wood beams and a showstopping stone fireplace.
The main suite takes its place on the main level with dual bath and closets, herringbone wood floors and a private patio among the gardens. The second level offers two additional bedrooms suites joined by a bonus room with bar and terrace overlooking the courtyard and peaceful views beyond. Both bedrooms also access this lovely terrace.
Additional highlights include an elevator, executive office furnished with bookshelves (optional 5th bedroom with ensuite bath and walk-in closet), detached guest casita situated at the front of the property for a sense of privacy for its visitors, a subterranean movie theater, tower, pool bath and a long driveway leading to a 4-car garage.
