***Water fountains and flowers adorn the inside and outside of this special structure…… Walking through the front door, your eyes enjoy the gorgeous landscaping while your ears take in the soothing trickle of the entry fountain.  A few steps further into the living-room and you’re met by the view of the Gulf of Nicoya through the pergola covered terrace.  A fossil rock fireplace is available for those nights when you want to be cozy and toasty.

***Purchase price of $450,000 USD is a fantastic bargain for this unique, high-end property design in an extremely desirable, ocean-view, gated community that is only a five-minute drive into town.

***This special piece of real estate is destined to retain, and over time, increase its value since several other existing homes within the community represent some of the finest homes in all of San Ramon. The grounds are reminiscent of a magical playland with powerfully vivid landscaping to enliven the senses, breathtaking views, and an air of utter peace.  Contact us to schedule a viewing today!
