The home at 19475 Kelly Wood Court blends traditional and contemporary styles in a warm way, making guests feel comfortable and welcome as soon as they walk inside. The home presents an excellent opportunity for a new owner to get into prestigious The Highlands at Santa Maria.
Located high on a hill at the corner of Santa Maria Drive and Kelly Wood Court, the home sits some eight feet above the August flood level, according to the owner.
The home has tile floors and a unique layout where the foyer turns left towards the formal dining room and living room. A tall brick archway frames the entrance. The formal dining room has contemporary light fixtures and a massive window at the far end that allows in lots of natural light.
The living room is a wide space with a whole wall taken up by a fireplace with a cypress mantle that runs all the way up to the triple crown molding lining the 12-foot ceilings. A built-in entertainment center is to the left of the fireplace and bookshelves are to the right. The cabinetry is painted cypress that matches the kitchen cabinetry.
Granite slabs are on the counters and the island in the kitchen. A double stainless sink is below a window and a 5-burner Maytag gas cook top is below a custom painted cypress hood. There’s a microwave/oven wall combo and a Whirlpool Gold refrigerator. Travertine is used as the backsplash.
A small office nook is located behind the kitchen near the entrance to the master suite. The master bedroom has a nice sitting area with four corner windows dressed in plantation shutters. The master bath has dual vanities and a 6-foot whirlpool tub below a window with more plantation shutters. An oversize walk-in shower is in one corner.
Just opposite the kitchen is a breakfast room that faces one of the nicest features of the house: an enclosed screen porch overlooking the back yard and garden. The owner reports that the sun sets on the opposite side of the home, meaning cool shade in the evenings on the porch. The morning sun filters into the porch, making it a perfect spot for coffee and the morning paper.
The back yard is small, which means very little maintenance. The screened porch overlooks a concrete patio and a stone path to a fountain and mediation bench. A tall palm tree gives the back yard a tropical feel.
Back inside, granite counters and glass-front cabinetry are features in a butler’s pantry that connects the formal dining hall to the kitchen.
Over on the other side of the house, the guest bedroom and bedroom No. 3 are serviced by a hall bath. The guest bedroom has a tall arched window as well as a squared off window, both with plantation shutters.
The laundry is located along this hall as well, with plenty of cabinetry and a sink. A little further down is the exit to the home’s two-car garage.
