Vista del Paraiso, a view of paradise, perfectly describes this exclusive custom-built mountaintop property.
Bordering the Santa Cruz Mountains on one side, its 8.71 acres of land dotted with hundreds of oak trees creates a stunning and gated private retreat with awe-inspiring panoramic views that will continue to take your breath away regardless of how long you call it home. Its level of exclusivity, privacy, security and serenity is unsurpassed.
From every room and the expansive south and west-facing Trex decking there are views of a spectacular patchwork of landscape including the verdant CordeValle Golf Course, vineyards, and layers of majestic mountains graciously unfolding in the distance.
Located at the end of the Armsby Lane Community, an exclusive enclave of 40 homes that sit on sprawling acreage ranging from 2 to 10 acres, this private gated estate at 15625 Griffis Way is also just about 10 minutes from downtown Morgan Hill restaurants, shops, wineries and the popular wine trail, the theater and golf. There is also easy freeway access into downtown San Jose and the rest of Silicon Valley about a 30-minute commute away.
The two-level home was crafted in 1997 with meticulous attention to detail, and has been lovingly maintained by one owner and enhanced with more than $250,000 of improvements to retain its pristine, like-new condition.
Recent improvements in the past year include beautifully refinished oak hardwood flooring, new plush carpets, 22 new dual-pane windows and sliding glass doors, fresh interior and exterior paint, a resurfaced driveway, and updated LED and solar landscape lighting.
The inviting outdoor entertaining space is masterfully designed with expansive Trex decking, and a gated resort-style pool wrapped in view decks with a sound system, new landscaping, koi pond, and full outdoor kitchen.
The open, light-drenched floor plan features about 3,651 square feet of living space with four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. There are high ceilings and crown molding. Formal living and dining rooms flow easily into the fabulous chef’s kitchen all updated with new quartz counters, island/breakfast bar, new Jenn-Air stainless appliances and Bosch dishwasher, new sink, faucet and disposal, freshly painted cabinetry with new brushed nickel hardware, and walk-in pantry with prep counter.
Walls of windows frame the views and two sliding glass doors provide access to the view deck that wraps around the open kitchen and adjoining casual dining space and expansive family room that features an exposed beam ceiling and is anchored by a gas log insert fireplace with raised brick hearth.
Two generous-size bedrooms are located in a private main-level wing. A nearby full bathroom with dual-sink vanity and tub/shower combination also has a convenient access to the pool.
Two bedroom suites are upstairs and include the master bedroom with its magnificent views, coffered ceiling and decorative crown molding. Throw open the French doors and enjoy the views from the private balcony.
The master bathroom gleams with polished and resealed marble floors and detailing including dual vanities and surround in the walk-in shower with dual showerheads, and Jacuzzi tub. The walk-in closet is enhanced with custom built-ins and there is additional closet space.
A junior master suite features a wall of custom-built cabinetry and full en suite bathroom.
The entire home has been inspected including a full septic system inspection and service, new pool surround decking and piers, fresh landscaping, new sod in the pool area, a fire system inspection and service, and new interior sprinklers.
The dual-zone HVAC system was serviced and NEST thermostats installed, and the main water line from the street to the house was replaced with a leak detection wire.
Additional features include a three-car garage with shiny epoxy flooring and built-in cabinetry, two 5,000-gallon water tanks, perimeter fencing, laundry room with a view window and laundry chute, tile roof, and post and beam foundation.
