With an enduring architectural style echoing finer Pasadena residences, 31371 Via Santa Maria effortlessly melds sophisticated ‘crisp linen’ style with casual ‘weekend comfort'. The formal front garden beautifully frames the gently arching driveway porte cochere and front entry. Inspired by trips to Provence, the rear gardens are a masterpiece. Both vast and intimate, the setting hosts a bevy of social areas with a massive outdoor hearth. A combination of natural textures and stunning plantings appear as though wild, belying years of planning and creation. Spacious but not overwhelming, the home invites living. Updated by the designer owner, the décor gives a modern nod to timeless design. Soaring ceilings set the tone in formal living spaces, while an updated kitchen flows seamlessly into a generous great room. Most main level spaces open to the gardens for terrific indoor-outdoor use. In addition to a main level bedroom suite and a separate office, the upper level hosts five more bedrooms (six total) including a large master suite that actually deserves to be labeled a ‘retreat’. The baths, beautifully outfitted, continue the modern/classic motif. Flexible elements allow future owners to adjust for their own preferences. This is a home to be lived in – beautifully - and one of the finer homes to be offered in the small gated enclave of Hunters Creek. Close to top schools, St. Margaret's, beaches, and world class equestrian centers… yet a world away and a world unto itself.
