Located near the top of a sunny San Benancio hillside is a private and tranquil home with beautiful views of San Benancio Canyon and beyond. Called the “Bird’s Nest” and “Top of the World” by the current owners friends, 225 San Benancio is a fabulous place to call home.
Built in 1987 with recent upgrades, this single level home offers graceful living with magnificent views from almost every room in the house. The living room has a fireplace to take the chill out of those long winter nights plus two large west facing sliding glass doors with breathtaking views and incredible sunsets. It features an open beam ceiling and open architectural design. The kitchen and dining area are open as well, making this a great home for entertaining.
The southern side of the home has three bedrooms and 2 bathrooms including the master suite. The rooms are of ample size and both bathrooms have been completely remodeled and are beautifully finished.
The north end of the house has a guest room, a workout room and the laundry room offering owners and guests plenty of privacy. This area could easily be converted into an in-law quarters, guest suite or second master bedroom.
Built on roughly 3.15 acres, this property maintains good privacy from it’s neighbors, especially with how the home is situated on the lot. There is a large circular driveway in front making it possible for even delivery trucks to come through and make the loop. There is a separate 2 car garage as well as a fenced dog run.
Beautiful Back Deck
The back deck opens up to the west and wraps around the entire rear of the home, nearly doubling the living space of the home. The deck has been redone with Trex decking with great care and attention to detail so that the screws are installed from the bottom, leaving the top of the deck clean. The lower section of the deck has been beefed up to accommodate the extra weight of a hot tub. This is a very peaceful and quite place to unwind at the end of long day and reflect on the day’s highlights.
