An address in Blackhawk’s gated Eagle Ridge Estates promises luxury and views, but this property delivers unsurpassed expectations with updated finishes, a lighted-drenched interior, privacy, and captivating views. The estate at 907 Eagle Ridge Drive on .78 acres features about 8,400 square feet of living space on two levels, including a 7,811-square-foot main house with six en suite bedrooms, powder room, office, and bonus room, and a 621-square-foot detached cabana with a full bathroom designed by Danville architect William Wood.
The amazing outdoor landscape and entertaining space, designed by Peter Koenig, includes a Cool Stone finish, Haddonstone fences, and fountains that wrap around the solar-heated sports pool, spa, fire pit, and gardens. The estate showcases a bright, neutral palette of colors from the limestone floors, extensive decorative millwork, and wood appliques to the soaring coffered ceilings.
Enter through the Cantera hand-forged iron and glass front doors into the two-story foyer illuminated by an elegant chandelier with a lift. A soaring wall of windows in the living room frames the unobstructed hillside views and immediately catches your eye.
Entertain on a grand scale in the generous-size formal dining room. Graceful arches and millwork define this elegant front-facing room. Suspended from decorative medallion molding is an exquisite crystal chandelier inspired by Empress Marie Theresa, mother of Marie Antoinette. The original work of art still hangs at the Schönbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria.
Prep space is abundant in the gourmet kitchen designed for multiple cooks with granite slab counters, backsplash, oversized island, and glazed cabinetry. There are four Dacor ovens, three dishwashers, one Bosch and two Fisher Paykel drawers, two sinks, a six-burner Dacor gas cooktop, and a full-size Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer. Sub-Zero wine refrigerators with a capacity of 300 bottles are nearby.
The light-filled kitchen flows into a spacious casual dining area with backyard access. There is a wall of built-in cabinetry with beveled glass doors and custom lighting. A workstation is also located here. The adjacent family room also enjoys the views and features a coffered ceiling, fireplace, and lots of room for game tables or a second lounging area. A walk-around wet bar includes a refrigerator, granite counter, and storage closet.
Also on the main level is an executive office with a double glass French door entry and fireplace, three en suite bedrooms, one with a private entry and hillside views, and one that would make an ideal home gym or au pair quarters. Two staircases provide access to the upstairs bridge walkway open to the living room and foyer. There are two en suite bedrooms in one wing, including one with a loft. Each has a walk-in closet.
Also upstairs is a large bonus room with a double door entry, coffered ceiling, and front-facing window. It is wired for a home theater but could also be a seventh bedroom or playroom.
A luxurious main suite wing behind a double door entry includes plush carpeting and coffered ceilings throughout the large bedroom and adjacent step-down sitting room with a fireplace and a private balcony overlooking the pool and across the hillsides.
