985 Siskiyou Drive

Rarely does one experience a home that evokes a reaction of joy, peace and contentment.   The Sellers of Ovation’s newest listing have collaboratively and painstakingly made this property into a unique paradise.  The wife, one of the leading experts in Ikebana, the art of Japanese flower arranging, has transformed the yard into an exotic garden.  Mature varieties of Japanese maple, Dogwoods, ferns and other flora and fauna including a mature bamboo grove are seamlessly interspersed around the breathtaking multi-level Koi pond.  The entertaining areas, one with built-in outdoor barbeque can accommodate several happy guests.

The husband who has lived in many different countries has contributed to the integration of the indoors and outdoors by adding Saltillo tiles in both areas and Blue Eucalyptus wood flooring in the living room and formal dining room.  The living room and family room which are separated by the gracious foyer, include book-end fireplaces and experience tree top views from French doors towards the Bay.   The formal dining room divided from the living room by wide steps, also has French doors to the lush outdoors.  The kitchen, perfectly situated for indoor/outdoor entertaining in the rear of the house, has well-designed counter seating which keeps the traffic flow away from the cook.  This room enjoys light from the vaulted ceiling with skylights.  Adjacent to the kitchen area is the conveniently located laundry room. 

The private area of the home includes the spacious master suite retreat.  This area enjoys French doors which open to the deck and bamboo grove.  The remodeled master bathroom includes dual vessel sinks, dual shower heads, private WC and plenty of closet space.  There are two additional bedrooms which share the remodeled hall bath.  Additional rooms in this wing include a powder room and delightful office/study with door to the outdoor patio and garden.
