Midcentury Modern in Heart of New California Wine Country Stuns with Amazing Views

Leona ValleyA California midcentury modern with views for days, tucked into an 11-acre property studded with pine, in the heart of a newly-designated AVA (American Viticultural area) designated area sounds like an amazing second shelter — especially when you see all the room it has for entertaining.

This three-bedroom, four-bath, 3,976 square foot home in Leona Valley has been fully updated and even boasts a 42-panel NRG solar system to keep electricity costs to a minimum.

Leona Valley is in northern Los Angeles County, between the Sierra Pelona mountains and the Mojave Desert, west of the Antelope Valley. Known for its cherries and wine grapes, Leona Valley also hosts an annual cherry festival.

And this home? Right in the middle of all that. “This split level home features walls of glass, multiple tiered decks, block walls, pocket doors, and multiple fireplaces,” said listing agent  James Chikato with Pinnacle Estate Properties.

Downstairs, a large great room features a wall of built-ins and a white brick fireplace that goes from floor to ceiling. A door leads to a private patio, and there is also a private office.

 

“The kitchen boasts granite countertops, two Thermador ovens and cooktop, commercial size GE Monogram refrigerator and wine cooler and an abundance of cabinets,” Chikato said. “The eat-in kitchen features a breakfast counter and a wall of built-ins.”

The kitchen also overlooks the dining room and living room with floor-to-ceiling windows that open to a deck, where a hot spring spa overlooks the mountain views.

And can we talk about the master suite? Located on one wing of the house, it has a huge walk-in closet with built-in shelves, a private deck, awesome views, an enclosed office, and a bathroom that has a spa tub and a Finlandia sauna.

“Outside is paradise, featuring over 200 pine trees and a large lower lot cleared to accommodate an orchard/vineyard/livestock,” Chikato said, adding that water lines and irrigation are already in place for anyone who wants to turn the property into a grape-growing enterprise.

In addition, there is a newer detached studio and large storage shed, both with electricity.
