“INSTEAD OF WONDERING WHEN YOUR NEXT VACATION IS, MAYBE YOU SHOULD SET UP A LIFE YOU DON’T NEED TO ESCAPE FROM.”                                                         Seth Godin


This bestselling author might have been sitting in the outdoor “fantasy island” the owners have created in this remarkable Chestnut Ridge property.  With massive palms swaying above a tumbling waterfall, stone pool, and hot tub, there is absolutely no reason to pack a suitcase in the near future.  Open space is on both the back and side of the property, as well as a wall and fence, affording complete privacy.  An outdoor barbeque station and covered dining space offer a multitude of excuses to spend all weekend enjoying one of the prettiest backyard havens in the Moorpark area!

The interior of the home is equally impressive.  Pristine landscaping leads to a double-door, front entry, with 15 ft. vaulted ceiling and a “showstopper” winding staircase in rich, dark wood.  The living room, with gorgeous distressed wood floors and fireplace, has French doors opening to the patio.  The spacious family room also has a fireplace and pool views. 

An inviting kitchen has granite counters and island, tile floor, and an antique finish on the custom cabinetry.  Adjoining the kitchen is a charming breakfast area with custom built-ins.  The first level also has a guest room with en suite bath.  A separate door to the outside makes this ideal for an office or in-law quarters.  An additional half-bath is also on this level.

The second floor, with three expansive guest rooms, is bright and airy.  Two of the bedrooms share a large bathroom, with double-sinks, and the third bedroom has its own private bath.  The master suite has everything:  vaulted ceilings, lovely sitting area overlooking the patio, huge shower, soaking tub, and a private balcony overlooking the hills!

Great restaurants, award-winning schools, shopping plazas, and major freeways are only minutes’ away, even though it seems like a thousand miles away from the noise and chaos of modern civilization.

So……store your suitcases in one of the three spacious garages, slip on your favorite bathing suit, slather on the sunscreen, and prepare to be pampered on your own magical island – no passport necessary!
