"It Takes a Family"

16578 Via Lago Azul



Nestled on the North side of Fairbanks Ranch, the 1.4 acre property offers a romantic oasis in the most idyllic of settings. Boasting timeless Spanish Colonial style architecture, the 3 bedroom home plus Guest Casita was one of the original homes in the 24 hr guard gated community with close proximity to the nearby park, walking trails, equestrian center, lake, tennis courts and community clubhouse. The lovingly inspired home renovation included the addition of Italian travertine flooring, an exceptional kitchen remodel, all bathrooms and guest casita updated to create an ambiance with casual, Southern California flair. The sparkling pool was completely refinished & converted to salt water, landscaping beautifully enhanced and sprinklers converted to drip and low-water heads. French doors from the dining room and Dutch door from the kitchen open to a magical courtyard with outdoor barbecue station, majestic tree and soothing water fountain. The fragrant, colorful gardens, poolside loggia and multiple courtyards make for the ultimate in indoor/outdoor living and al fresco dining.
