Located in the heart of Thousand Oaks neighborhood blocks away from Solano Ave shops, restaurants and transportation.  A rare combination of spectacular architecture, custom design renovations, prized location & gorgeous landscaping.  Designed in 1914 by John Hudson Thomas, impeccably renovated perfect for all seasons.  A preservation of original architectural details with reimagined custom renovations that afford a modern lifestyle.  This private sanctuary is set back from the street, anchored in a gentle hillside by a stunning boulder, surrounded by mature oaks & enchanted landscaped patios.

A custom chef's kitchen featuring Italian granite counter tops, custom mahogany cabinetry, limestone floors, Subzero/Wolf appliances, high-end lighting with a wall of windows/door that seamlessly invite the outside in.  Gracious formal living and dining rooms that flow effortlessly into the designer kitchen with views of the majestic boulder, creating the perfect entertaining venue.

Beautiful sweeping bay windows frame the staircase to the 2nd floor of 4 well-appointed bedrooms, including a master bedroom/bathroom spa-like retreat, fitted with Carrera marble, flame-cut granite, radiant floors, a luxury free-standing soaking tub w/jets and a separate shower.  The 2nd bathroom has a sunken tub, separate shower and Calacatta marble throughout.
