Sponsored: Exceptional upgrades inside and out lift Alamo Springs home to great heights

Like the perfect mix of seasonings that create a delicious and flavorful dish, the insightful blend of richly layered Mediterranean-inspired finishes with bold splashes of contemporary designs is impressive and very satisfying at this Alamo Springs home.

Mediterranean-style finishes and contemporary elements make a dynamic statement at this 5,900-square-foot home with a backyard oasis. 

Located in the prestigious and gated enclave of luxury homes, 123 Alamo Springs Drive begins with a grand circular driveway entrance. Behind the double Antigua front door and its trio of arched transoms is more than 5,900 square feet of exceptional living and gathering spaces with a warm and inviting ambience.

The backyard paradise bordering an open hillside offers all the essentials for fun and entertaining at every level. Step up to the pavilion that includes a full kitchen with granite counters and seating at the island, a Fire Magic grill, cooktop burners, disposal, refrigerator, and a stainless sink with hot and cold water. Get cozy in front of the gas fireplace or practice your game at the four-hole putting green.

The spa and a pair of waterfalls spill into the pebble tec pool. Lounge on the Baja deck in the sun or under an umbrella. Enjoy the views of the lush landscape, lawns and terraced gardens in this ultra-private sanctuary.

The family room features gorgeous built-ins with a gas fireplace, a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and grand windows that deliver great views. 

This two-level home built by Davidon on more than a half-acre completed in 2013 features interior design by LMK Interiors with five bedrooms, including a main-level guest suite, five full bathrooms, two powder rooms, an executive office, formal living room, custom entertainment walk-around bar, a 650-plus-bottle wine cellar, a spectacular family room, game/media loft, and a chef’s kitchen that leaves nothing to be desired.

The home’s lighting adds elegance and beauty, including this work of art at the top of the staircase. 

Hand-scraped European oak floors, new upstairs carpet, stunning light fixtures from Hudson Valley and Hubbardton Forge, smooth textured walls, and soaring ceilings that add volume to the already spacious rooms are a few of the outstanding features.

The living room has a gorgeous exposed-beam vaulted ceiling and a fireplace with a carved mantel.

A walk-around bar features a thick glass counter with dramatic under lighting custom-designed by interior designer Emma Kay. The bar includes dual under-counter refrigerators, an icemaker, a hammered copper sink, built-in cabinetry, and open glass shelving to display prized bottles of aperitifs and tequilas. The nearby temperature-controlled wine cellar is behind a custom iron and glass door.

Accordion glass doors fold open for a seamless flow to an intimate courtyard, a spacious venue with a travertine tile patio wrapping around a tiered fountain, lush gardenscape, and a gas fireplace.

The enormous family room also features an exposed-beam vaulted ceiling. A wall of custom cabinetry and a gas fireplace with a raised hearth anchors this room. It is open to the kitchen and dining area.

Spend your breezy days and dreamy nights here, where the spa and waterfalls flow into the pool. 

No detail was missed when designing and upgrading this gourmet kitchen. A trio of pendants illuminates the oversize island/breakfast bar topped with leathered granite. Quartzite counters with a subway tile backsplash, custom cabinetry with upper glass-faced cabinets, a farmhouse sink and a walk-in pantry are featured. Thermador appliances include a six-burner plus grill, dual oven range with a pot filler, two full-size side-by-side refrigerators and drawer freezers, warming drawers, and two Miele dishwashers.

Behind leaded glass French doors is an executive office with a front-facing window, coffered ceiling, plantation shutters, custom walnut cabinetry and open shelving.

Cook, eat and drink at the outside pavilion that comes with granite counters, a Fire Magic grill, refrigerator and a stainless sink with hot and cold water.
