From sweeping bay views to the light-filled, stylish and generously proportioned rooms, 1 Fernhoff Court inspires feelings of well-being, luxury, and space. Tucked away on a tranquil cul-de-sac, this classic, single-level uber-stylish Mid-Century Modern 5BD/4.5BA with a contemporary feel has everything the discerning buyer could desire, including 5 bedrooms on one level, a wide-open floor plan, updated chef’s kitchen, expansive owner’s suite, large level lawns and play areas, solar power, off-street parking, two-car garage with internal access, and a separate studio ADU for office, au pair or guest quarters.

The approach to the home has the unique feel of entering a private retreat. The driveway feels like its own cul-de-sac winding past the sprawling front field with solar panels and shed into a beautifully pavered parking area (or beyond to the large two-car garage). The front door is fenced to create a gated indoor patio transition space – beautifully lit at night. The patio cleverly creates floral and green views for the rooms that overlook it.

The entry and spacious living room are ablaze with light shining through a wall of windows and glass French doors opening onto the patio and beautifully landscaped backyard. Hardwood floors, crown molding, recessed lighting, and a gas fireplace with floating bench seating add character and warmth. A powder room and coat closet conveniently flank the entry.

Adjacent to the living room, an expansive family room features built-in shelves and a stone fireplace beneath high, deep windows. A large double skylight in the center of the room and another set of oversized windows and French doors create a lovely indoor/outdoor flow contributing to the wide-open atmosphere of the home.

Open to the family room, illuminated by a sun-catching skylight and a transom window over the dual sink, the bright, updated chef’s kitchen features sparkling stone countertops and tile backsplash. The discerning home chef will appreciate the Bosch [?] dishwasher, Gaggenau cooktop with 3 gas burners and 2 convection burners, built-in microwave and oven, with Thermador warming drawer beneath. The adjoining formal dining room boasts windows overlooking the front porch and a dramatic vaulted wood ceiling with glass panels between the beams. Glass French doors open onto an enclosed wood deck.

Off the kitchen is a butler’s pantry with a leaded glass window that catches the sun, casting cheerful rainbows. The area features stone countertops, stainless steel sink, a second Bosch dishwasher, and Tromm washer/dryer. Stairs on one side lead down to the garage, or on the other side to an exercise room with mirrored folding closet doors and a separate entrance leading to the side yard.

In classic mid-century modern style, the 5 bedrooms occupy one wing of the home. The luxurious owner’s suite is illuminated by a double skylight and glass French doors that open onto the backyard. Stylish modern details include hardwood floors, lovely sconces, and a marble gas fireplace. A separate dressing area features a tile vanity and huge walk-in closet. The adjoining split bath includes an enormous bathroom with tile vanity, lighted mirror, oversized jetted tub with tile surround, and step-in shower with glass doors.

Next to the owner’s suite is an ensuite bedroom with a skylight and split bath with shower over deep tub and 2 shower heads. A frosted glass door leads out to a small, private patio tucked against the hillside.

A hallway with three skylights leads to the remaining bedrooms, each with its own charming features. They share a full bath with tile vanity and dual vessel sinks with trough faucets. The bathroom features a lovely etched window, corner step-in shower, and built-in linen closet.

A wide back patio runs the length of the house, with citrus trees and other plantings flanking a lovely lawn, ideal for outdoor entertaining in warm weather. In the evenings, pull up some chairs, take your favorite drink, listen to the birds and watch the city lights blink on across the bay.
