Spanning more than 3 acres, this custom Mediterranean-style home is in the gated community of Saddle Ridge Estates. Listing agent Mona Moreland with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Gary Greene says the location offers a quiet country lifestyle with suburban convenience. She describes the home as a “true work of art.” Its remodel and design was completed by designer Jorge Cantu of OZ Interiors.

Wrought-iron gates offer entrance to the property, which includes an HAI eight-camera security system.

With more than 9,200 square feet of living space, the two-story home offers an incredible design, memorable features throughout and a full in-law or guest suite with a living room, kitchenette and private bath.

Custom double iron doors open to the stunning entry with travertine flooring that flows throughout the main living spaces. Pathways and doorways between rooms open up the spaces and create an open flow for entertaining.

Incredible views of the scenic grounds or resort-like backyard are captured in every room of the home including the two-story office with a floor-to-ceiling accent wall, a large gas ribbon flame fireplace and TV, and contemporary built-ins that provide ample storage.
