With west-facing sunset views on the edge of the 3,000-acre Crest Ecological Preserve, this custom estate home located in the coveted Cornelius Ranch of Crest offers 1.47-acres of pure privacy-yet usability of the acreage. Backed onto the Ecological Preserve to safeguard the endless views & peaceful privacy. Experience the afternoon sounds of pine trees, hawks, & peacefulness. 1st floor master bedroom & ensuite bathroom with it's own fireplace.

New upgrades throughout this luxury property, including: interior & exterior paint, all new fresh flooring, an upgraded kitchen, 4 upgraded bathrooms, an upgraded full-size laundry room, and more...

Take a quick imaginative walk through the property for a moment:

Drive up a long eucalyptus tree-lined driveway, to find 284 Sunnybrook tucked into it's own private corner.  A massive flat parking area at the top of the driveway allows for multiple vehicles or multiple vehicles and an RV.  An oversized 3-car garage (with a pull through garage as well) provides additional parking or storage. Guests will stroll to the front door, immediately exhibiting the grandeur of the entrance to the home.  Peering through a glass-fronted door, they will see the massive 16-ft open height formal entry foyer. 

Greeting your guests into the home, the front door opens into the bottom level's open foyer, finding the formal dining room to the right, a bonus office/library/bedroom to the left, and the classic semi-spiral staircase to the upstairs level.  To the entire south wing of the first-floor is the massive 500-sqft vaulted-ceiling master bedroom. The master bedroom at the south west wing of the home gives the same sweeping views to the west, while still offering the seclusion of it's own area. Find a sizable walk-in closet, and a dual-vanity ensuite bathroom with a couple's-sized soaking tub, and a two-sided fireplace centered perfectly in the master wing for quiet, relaxing evenings.

Center to the first floor is the formal famliy room with floods of light from the multiple windows to the west.  A fireplace and extended-height ceilings make this that warm Christmas-morning center-of-the-home where years of memories are organically forged.  (And, that 20-ft spruce tree that you've always wanted will fit!) 

Follow the hallway to the north wing of the home to find the other heart of the home...the kitchen and open living room.  The fresh and white kitchen cabinets, tastefully adorned with it's black modern-farmhouse hardware, are yet so perfectly highlighted by the thick slabs of granite counters throughout. Taking the deliberate design element another step further - the dark hardwood floors in this wing of the home contrast with perfection to the fresh white of the kitchen cabinets, walls, and fireplace....continuing to demonstrate the consequential design of each room.  The kitchen, with windows in nearly all north and west walls of the space, is where the liveliness of the home exists. Prep and cook from the kitchen, with panoramic views of nearly everything:  quiet evenings with the breezes rushing in off the endless hills in view, or the Sunday afternoon Super Bowl game in the living room, or the kids playing out in the pool.

As the kids run back through the house from the kitchen and outdoor living area, up the stairs, and to the second floor they will find their massive open area loft space...an entirely new living room for the kids to have to themselves for their own antics. Although visually open from above to below, this loft area remains out of visual sight of those down on the first floor, making the phrase "out of sight" a temporary relief to mom. With 3 extra-large bedrooms (some with their own walk-in closets), and 2 full size bathrooms, there will be no fighting for space on this level of the home.  East and west mountain views from each bedroom on this level, makes the spaces feel even larger than the already-large sizes that they are, while also allowing plenty of natural light and cross-breezes.

As you sit quietly, with a glass of wine in hand in the jacuzzi, on the edge of nearly limitless open space views, in a state of entrancement, the kids come running downstairs, out through the living room, into the backyard, and end your moment of bliss with cannonballs into the black-bottom, heated pool. That small moment of serenity fades away, but the memories will not.  

Think of warm summer afternoons, with the winds coming straight into the kitchen windows, while the music is turned up, and friends/family are out on the pool, and then seeing nothing beyond that but orange-enflamed sunset. This is the prime entertainer's / family home for those who love privacy, no neighbors, and endless mountain views. ...yet not sacrificing anything by being elevated on the hillside. Several flat RV parking locations on the property. Several additional building locations (think ADU/guest house, detached garage/shop, corrals, barn, etc. Ask agent for more info on locations.) | If you are the outdoor-types - the Crestridge Ecological Preserve is a little known network of naturally-preserved horse/hiking/mtn biking trails that will make you feel that you are in the middle of nowhere in a matter of minutes. | Loads of new upgrades. Great family home with downstairs master bedroom separated from the rest of the home, an extra downstairs room than can be used for library/office/craft room/ or extra bedroom. 3 upstairs bedrooms all of larger size with walk-in closets + a massive loft living room for the kids to stay separated from the rest of the living areas.
