What does a $$MILLION+ DOLLAR home look like in Rossmoor CA?

3252 Ruth Elaine Rossmoor CA When did you last see a house that was so well built and so well designed that it made you stop and say “This is a million dollar house!”? We are incredibly fortunate to have the opportunity to visit thousands of homes a year, but very few are as well thought out, designed and built as 3252 Ruth Elaine in Rossmoor. This home truly embodies what a $$MILLION+ DOLLAR home looks like in Rossmoor. Something that might surprise you even more… this home was not torn down and re-built. This is an example of a home owner knowing what good quality, functionality and design look like and then taking those and incorporating them into the original design of the builder, Ross Cortese. It is single story, has a lovely front yard, courtyards and a spacious backyard with a pool, jacuzzi and outdoor living space complete with a fireplace.  So what else makes it a $$MILLION DOLLAR home in Rossmoor? We will tell you…

GetMedia-53252 Ruth Elaine was originally an Estates Model. The owner kept the original garage in tact and pushed out the front of the home off of the living/dining room area just to the East of the original fireplace. The home now extends all the way out to the front, in line with the garage. However, instead of enclosing the entire space that was pushed out, this owner created an elaborate courtyard to take advantage of our abundance of sunshine here in California. This allowed the owner to install beautiful French doors at the master suite and family room. When you enter this courtyard you are walking into an indoor/outdoor living space. It is finished with flagstone, diamond patterned cement, custom paint, beautiful flower beds and a sitting wall that creates a private space off of the master suite, allowing for an indoor/outdoor feel in the master as well. GetMedia-9Step inside this home and it is hard to imagine that this was once an Estates model. The entire design of the home has been altered by the addition of a wall off of what was the main living room and now it separates the living room from a grand family room. The flow does not stop with the living spaces either, each bedroom has easy  access to a bathroom and is filled with natural light. The attention to detail is impeccable. 

GetMediaThis home features not one, but two air conditioning units and two hot water heaters (one of which is tankless). The plumbing was re-done and now the entire home has copper plumbing. The ceilings have all been scraped, smoothed, textured and feature recessed lights and/or custom lighting. Each room has custom molding, baseboards and most have custom crown molding. The home was meticulously done from top to bottom taking into account the windows, the ceilings,the molding around the windows, the flooring and even where the wires went for each television. You will not see wires to the television in the family room nor the master suite. The wires have all been carefully placed into the walls to give you clean and finished lines. The home has surround sound with speakers tucked into the ceiling, there is a full wet bar with custom granite counter tops and custom solid wood cabinetry. Every bathroom has custom backsplashes, tile work, custom glass work and designer paint. Even the garage has a custom gift wrapping station, a work bench and custom storage cabinets. Everything in this home has been so beautifully done. Did we mention the master suite… or should we say suites?

GetMedia-3GetMedia-2GetMedia-1GetMedia-4The main master suite was custom built, and when we say custom… we mean CUSTOM!!! This spectacular suite sits off by itself on the opposite side of the home from the other 3 bedrooms and offers you a quiet and peaceful sanctuary. With its very own sitting area, stone fireplace and outdoor courtyard you could literally stay in your suite for days on end, except maybe you would have to call for room service! Butler anyone? And did you see the photo of the bathroom up above? WOW! This bathroom has a soaking tub surrounded by travertine, there is a custom window treatment complete with a remote control for keeping your privacy, a beautiful walk-in custom glass and travertine shower and a vanity with enough space for a Kardashian. Oh and speaking of Kardashians did you see the closet photo up above? This spectacular closet has hidden gems such as an ironing board that slides out, a custom cedar lined area with mirrors, a storage shelf for luggage and plenty of cubbies for your shoes… okay, so you may have to buy some shoes to fill up all of the shoe cubbies… you can do it!

Oh and please do not think that this $$MILLION DOLLAR + Rossmoor home forgot the backyard! Oh no, this backyard is an A++. The decking is made of Trex decking so there is virtually no maintenance, the darker pebble tech on the bottom of the pool and spa help to soak up the suns rays and naturally heat the pool and the water falls. Yes, there are two water falls that create a tranquil ambiance, a breath of fresh air. Want to cook? Great! There is a custom stainless steel BBQ at the outdoor grilling station. Cold? Go warm yourself up next to the outdoor fireplace and relax as you listen to the waterfall. Worried about privacy? No need, this home has mature trees and hedging offering you complete privacy in your backyard. 

We are clearly smitten with this home, its attention to detail and design. This is by no means an average Rossmoor home, but an exceptional home that everyone should see. Open house is this Saturday 12-4 or call us for a private tour.
