About 121 Canyon Creek
Renowned for its exclusivity, natural beauty and premium luxury living, Irvine’s guard-gated Shady Canyon community is among the most prestigious private enclaves in Southern California. Near the end of a peaceful cul-de-sac street, this lavish estate presents the pinnacle of success at Shady Canyon, with a phenomenal custom residence and walled and gated grounds rivaling those in Beverly Hills, the Hamptons and beyond. Subtle in its beauty and harmonizing with its natural setting, the estate’s homesite extends nearly .82 acres and weaves intimate patios, sprawling lawns and manicured landscaping with a large central courtyard, a saltwater pool with spa, an open-air living room, fireplaces and two outdoor showers. The outdoor kitchen is better equipped than those found in most homes, complete with a pizza oven, Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, exotic stone countertops, an island and wine cooler. Countless traditional and arched French doors provide easy passage between indoor and outdoor living areas, creating numerous spaces for formal and casual entertaining, impromptu parties and easy relaxation. A formal foyer and gallery-style halls welcome guests into a sophisticated residence of undeniable refinement and luxury, with handcrafted woodwork, wood and marble flooring, romantic archways, and ceilings that are vaulted, beamed, cross-loin, barrel or tray, depending upon the room. An elevator serves all three levels, with the main floor hosting an enormous formal dining room that opens to the courtyard on one side and a patio on the other; a great room with built-in entertainment center and slideaway glass doors to a loggia; and a family room that also opens to the loggia. Unparalleled in design and amenities, the kitchen displays an oversized island, a massive walk-in pantry, two butler’s pantries, a separate breakfast room, two built-in refrigerators, a home-management center, built-in Meile coffee station, two farmhouse sinks, a Viking range and Thermador appliances. Approximately 17,246 square feet, the impressive residence is home to five en suite bedrooms and seven full and three half baths, including a primary suite on the main level and another by itself on the top floor. A separate upper floor features a versatile gym/studio, and the subterranean level boasts a game room, wine cellar, and a tiled garage for over 17 vehicles that features a work bay with hydraulic lift, hobby and storage rooms, and a turntable for easy parking.
