Experience the ultimate country escape at this fabulous custom estate on nearly five acres within Murrieta’s exclusive guard-gated community of Meadow Oaks. The property has multiple pads that can accommodate an additional ADU or barn. While seemingly away from it all, with star-filled nights, peaceful days and a quiet, equestrian-oriented ambiance, the luxurious Tuscan-influenced residence is just minutes from in-town advantages including shops, restaurants, schools and more. Located at the end of a long driveway with a circular motorcourt and generous guest parking, the impressive home commands attention with an inviting covered entry portico and a custom front door. The upgraded interior extends approximately 4,784 square feet and showcases a double-height foyer with dramatic staircase, spacious living areas, travertine flooring, crown molding, archways, and a great room with fireplace and media niche. Perfect for cherished get-togethers with loved ones, from holiday gatherings to fun-filled sleep-overs for the kids, the great room flows easily to a remodeled kitchen with white cabinetry, granite countertops, an island with a bar-height breakfast and appetizer counter, a built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator, a range and Viking wall ovens. Enjoy six bedrooms including a main-floor primary suite, four- and one-half baths, a library, a spacious second-floor bonus room and a five-car garage. The only guard-gated enclave adjacent to La Cresta on the picturesque Santa Rosa Plateau, Meadow Oaks offers an enviable setting where residents share the love of horses, grow orchards and vineyards, raise animals, and explore miles of private hiking and riding trails. Weekend getaways are easy, with Palm Springs, Big Bear, Los Angeles, San Diego and Orange County all about 1.5 hours from home.
