Take a ho-hum house.  Well built, well located but just a little...well...vanilla.

Add a creative family with DIY skills to do what they can and the wisdom to know when to call in the professionals.  Add some elegance and amazing decorating talent.

Voila!  You have this amazing 3 bedroom, 3 bath home currently offered for sale in the gated community of Ridgemark in pastoral San Benito County.

Here is beauty and elegance with practical livability.  Driving into the sweeping circular drive, notice the freshly painted exterior made more attractive with the addition of shutters.  Once inside you'll find fresh paint throughout, with new windows and updated lighting fixtures with fans  to add energy efficiency.  Health is protected by a newer furnace and air conditioning unit with Heppa filtration as well as reverse osmosis for the water.

The expanded and remodeled kitchen and pantry with tile floors offer a beautiful workplace for the fussiest of chefs, featuring a farmhouse sink at the window to the peaceful backyard and mountains behind.

The master en suite was enlarged and now features a beautiful bathroom and walk-in closet.

The colors and fixtures and designer touches flow smoothly throughout each room.

The plan is quite open, but there are separate family and dining rooms.  The living room has a cosy wood burning fireplace for those chilly winter evenings.  Or if you prefer, find that cosy fire outside at the fire pit. The sellers are taking theirs on their new adventure but you can add your own if you like the idea!

The backyard is accessed through an elegant French door.  A covered patio offers the opportunity for al fresco dining.  Continue out to additional patio space if you prefer some sunshine.  There is a beautifully landscaped yard. The backyard has been fenced to keep their dogs safe.

This home is one level, but there is one set of stairs leading to a loft in the entry area.  Currently used as a home office, it would also make a fabulous meditation space or reading nook.

A two-car attached garage set off to the side of the house provides two additional driveway parking spots.  

The Ridgemark Neighborhood Park is located nearby.  Not close enough for noise or nuisance, but near enough to be handy.
