ALESSANDRO HEIGHTS- HILLCREST- Unique and one of a kind Santa Fe style estate perched on an elevated promontory with sweeping and unobstructable views of the hills, city lights and mountains beyond! Built on a north-south axis and constructed with 8" thick stucco walls for an adobe effect, this home was ahead of its time in providing ample energy efficiency for maintaining a temperate interior climate year round. Unreal architectural detail and intrigue exists in every nook and cranny of this truly remarkable property! Just two long term owners in its nearly 40 year history, this home has been twice featured on the Riverside Panhellenic Home Tour and well as the annual Spring Garden Tour. The native southwestern style landscape is intense with specimen Cactus and succulent plants of multiple varieties and consumes nearly no irrigation water living merely off the ambient precipitation and ground water. Entering the house through the front courtyard you're reminded of early Southwest settlements on the Spanish land grants of homes made of mud and constructed ideally to shelter from the desert climates of the region with no access to modern conveniences. The formal living room of the foyer has a soaring wood beaned ceiling with clerestory windows flooding the interior with light and openable by remote control for ventilation when appropriate. Separate formal dining room; Large island kitchen with breakfast nook; Separate family room; Secluded study off the foyer and courtyard; Private master suite with retreat and Beehive fireplace; Large indoor laundry and attached oversized 3-car garage. Offered in all original condition and ready for new owners to put their own polish on this masterpiece!
