Dramatic, expansive mountain & golf course views are yours from a private cul-de-sac lot surrounded by 6.81 acres of open space. This stunning energy efficient home with guest casita is LEED certifiable per Seller. The open floor plan has one-level living with a 600 sq ft panoramic view room. Large refrigerated wine cellar & chef's kitchen with Wolf, Miele & KitchenAid appliances. Relaxing master suite has spa, sauna & attached office. Theater room can be 4th BD with its own bath. Exquisite cantera stone, wrought iron & slab granite finishes inside & out. Backyard paradise includes an outdoor kitchen, heated salt water lap pool with built-in spa, lighted regulation Bocce court, fire pit, & pool house with 1/2 bath & outdoor shower. A huge roof-top deck has 360 degree views that are amazing. Standing curbside in front of 13641 Catclaw Court, you simply cannot see (figuratively of course) the beautiful home in front of you. This is a LEEDS-certifiable environmentally-conscious built home. It is not the plain and simple wood frame construction of 99%+ of the homes around you. Instead, it is made of polyurethane block with poured concrete columns every 32" alternating with metal studs every other 32". As a result, the insulation factors in this home are way above normal and it stays a good deal cooler in the summer and a good deal warmer in the winter. The solar panels provide enough electricity to sell some back to the utility company and the system is set up to be easily expandable to three times its present size. Inside, great pains were taken to protect the living environment. These include: a whole house Hepa filter system and air exchanger; 2 Noritz tankless water heaters; bamboo wood flooring; natural wool carpeting; Marmoleum flooring; Solatubes; retractable sun screens; low E Pella windows; low flow Toto toilets; no VOC paint; CFL lighting; etc. (ask for the "Energy Efficiency/Green Product Analysis" and get lots more details & information). This is essentially an "all-one-level" house. The only "second story" feature is a 630 sq. ft. panoramic-view observatory (with covered balcony) which was used as a games room by the prior owner. But with its own half-bath already present, by building a new 15-foot wall and adding a door, it could also become a separate one-bedroom suite with its own separate entrance from outside; or a grandkids play room, or hobby room. The fenced-in rooftop offers a beautiful 360-degree dramatic view of 8000+ ft.-high mountains 50+ miles away! The kitchen is that of a gourmet chef - not a showplace with lots of wasted space. Containing the obligatory Miele and Wolf appliances, this granite playground also has lots of additional serving counter space; a self-contained wine room; and a huge walk-in pantry for dishware, linens, supplies dry/canned goods and more. This kitchen was laid out for efficient usability by chefs with "savoir faire". The 600 sq. ft. casita is not just a weekend retreat. This is a FULLY contained and complete one-bedroom apartment for year-round livability by in-laws or caretakers. The master suite has an attached office with built-in custom cabinetry. The master bath includes a great walk-in glass-bricked shower; a 2-person Hot Springs spa & an Apex sauna. The guest bedroom is huge, with ensuite bath and an extra-large walk-in closet. The theatre room houses a 10-foot screen and projector system. If a new buyer is so inclined, this room, with its adjacent full bath, could be easily converted to a very private fourth bedroom. Not to be overlooked is the fact that, though officially on a 1/2 acre lot, you're effectively surrounded by a 6-acre buffer because of the common areas; golf course easements; cul-de-sac location; and neighboring house setbacks. This incredible isolation and privacy in "sub-urbanity" is very hard to find! Life in this house revolves around the back of it, not the southern-facing front. The multi-terraced back yard includes an outdoor kitchen; a 50-foot salt-water lap pool with built-in spa; and a lighted 60-foot regulation bocce ball court. The secluded lower patio also boasts a gas fire pit and a pool house with 1/2 bath and an outdoor shower.
