On more than an acre of land with a sweeping view of forest and distant ridges, this private mountain home has captured one of the premium locations in all of Arnold. Pull through the trees onto the level circle driveway to quietly understated elegance. Completely rebuilt and remodeled in 2018, the quality of craftsmanship and materials is evident from the first step into the pine-vaulted great room. You are greeted by the view and drawn out to the more than 1100 square feet of outdoor decking (all new from the ground up in 2018). Sit for a moment and take in your surroundings then wander back in to explore the main floor. Leathered granite, fine wood cabinetry, a gas range worthy of the best of chefs, all beckon from the kitchen. Start noticing the custom doors as you head down the hall past the separate mudroom entry, the powder room, a hidden main floor laundry and walk into the master bedroom with more of the view, a walk-in closet and a spacious spa-like bathroom in gorgeous stone and wood. Down the metal railed stairs from the great room, you enter a second family room flanked by two more bedrooms -- bunks in one and the other still spacious with two queen beds, a wine cellar (the only room still wood paneled), additional space for open office, pool table, media center, whatever suits your lifestyle. There is a second large laundry room on this level that still holds the only original countertop for sentimentality sake. You can tell this home has been pampered always and then granted a whole new look just two years ago by owners with great taste and style. The little things matter too, full closed gutter system, thermostat operated attic fan, classic rocked woodburning fireplace with gas starter that brightens and warms the kitchen, dining and living rooms, central heat, new water heater, improvements throughout. This is one of those homes that you feel from the first moment; the details are all here in the background though it is the ambiance that captures you and won't let go. Only moments from Sequoia Woods golf course, a few minutes to town center and hundreds of acres of trails all around, or head uphill to numerous gorgeous alpine lakes and the ski resort of Bear Valley. The Sierra has much to offer, an escape from the madding crowd into nature's wonderland -- and this property is at the heart of it all.
