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. Amazing outdoor landscape and entertaining space, designed by Peter Koenig, includes Cool Stone finish and Haddonstone balustrades and fountains that wrap around the solar-heated sports pool and spa, fire pit and gardens.
The estate showcases a bright neutral palette of colors from the limestone floors and extensive decorative millwork and wood appliques, to the soaring coffered ceilings. Enter through the Cantera hand-forged iron and glass front doors and into the two-story foyer illuminated by an elegant chandelier with 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 its granite slab counters and backsplash, oversize island, and glazed cabinetry. There are four Dacor ovens, three dishwashers including one Bosch and two Fisher Paykel drawers, two sinks, a six-burner Dacor gas cooktop, and full size Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer. Sub-Zero wine refrigerators with the capacity of 300 bottles are nearby.
The light-filled kitchen flows into a spacious casual dining area that has access to the backyard. 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 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, and three en suite bedrooms including 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 that is 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 master 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 access to a private balcony overlooking the pool and across to the hillsides. There are two walk-in closet rooms. The sumptuous master bathroom also has access to a front-facing balcony, dual-sink vanity, jetted tub and oversize shower with dual showerheads.
Throw open the three sets of French doors in the cabana for a fabulous entertaining space that seamlessly flows to the Cool Stone patios. The cabana includes a fireplace, full bathroom, and kitchenette with microwave, refrigerator, sink and cabinetry.
Additional features include a 1,300-square-foot garage for four cars and a golf cart, retractable staircase to attic storage, and additional laundry hookup.
