Magical Castle at Country Club Golf Course in Elk Grove
To be completely factual, you probably won’t find fairy dust or pixies prancing about this magical home on the golf course in Elk Grove, but it’s easy to let your imagination run wild at this unique property. Passersby who live in this gated community have been panting to get inside this home since it was custom built in the early 1990s. It features a turret, and the front brick exterior is covered in ivy. It looks like a home you would expect to discover in Once Upon a Time.
There are so many custom features. It is obvious that the woman who designed this home spent a long time contemplating its design. Beautiful, tall, and heavy dual wood doors grace the entry. Hardwood floors feature strongly mostly throughout the main level. Stained glass and leaded glass are introduced not only as windows but are also prominent in some of the light fixtures. Many of the rooms are spacious; there is almost 4,500 square feet in this 5-bedroom, 5-bath home.
The living room is formal, featuring a vaulted wood plank ceiling with accent beams, a fireplace with marble mantel, hardwood floors. There are French doors to a patio, including dual half-circle custom-covered windows above a bank of windows on a curved wall, all of which allows spectacular views of the golf course and lake.
Just when you think it can’t get any more beautiful, the family room is equally if not more so impressive. Vaulted wood plank ceilings in this room, too, accented by beams. One wall is covered in raised paneling, with a built-in bookcase plus a brick fireplace. The windows are clad in wood trim and the wood paneling continues as half walls. This room has hardwood floors and double-entry doors.
You’ll notice near the entryway a room used as wine storage. This was once an elevator and has since been converted. The first floor is for wine and the second floor space offers storage.
The kitchen is immense. Raised panel, beautifully finished wood cabinets — some of the upper wall cabinets have glass in the doors. There is a built-in area with a desk. Next to the built-in Subzero refrigerator, which simply vanishes into the wall, is an arched brick alcove with a top-of-the-line Thermidor gas cooktop. The floors, of course, are hardwood.
There are several sinks in the kitchen, a separate island and a dining bar, as well as a breakfast nook. Its smooth synthetic counters would be excellent for rolling dough and making pastries. Overhead is a stained glass light fixture, coupled with recessed lighting. A handful of chefs could easily work side-by-side in this gourmet kitchen. Like the other main rooms, this also offers stunning views of the golf course and lake.
The backyard is large enough for a pool, and the landscaping is breathtaking. After you buy this gorgeous home, you can sit on the patio and watch golfers at the fourth hole if you like or relax on the second-floor balcony and take in more of the golf course view.
