693 Santa Ray Avenue
Built in 2016, 693 Santa Ray Avenue is a rare and stunning 3+BD/2.5BA Crocker Highlands modern with an Asian-inspired aesthetic and custom high-end details and finishes throughout. Designed by architect Ryan Knock, this 2,377 square foot home is both distinctive and beautifully designed for modern living, with fantastic indoor-outdoor flow.
The moment you enter 693 Santa Ray, its exquisite details amaze, with polished Ardex floors, skylights, and cabinetry. From the entryway, you are immediately drawn down the staircase, which is flanked by custom shelves with ultra-clear glass backs designed by woodworker Matt Eastvold; from there, an expansive and utterly dramatic sunken open-concept living, dining, and kitchen area unfolds before you, filled with light and lush green views from the glass doors that flank its south side and lead to the home’s deck. Continuity throughout the space is provided by a prefinished rift white oak ceiling and matte, finished concrete floors with embedded hydronic heating. The spacious living area is graced by a chalkboard wall, while the kitchen/dining area awes with a large Calacatta Viola marble island, six-burner Bertazonni gas range, Viking refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, sleek Neolith basalt countertops (a theme continued in the home’s baths), and custom floating shelves designed by Eastvold and Leicht cabinetry with etched black glass. A custom walnut dining table extends from the island, while windows overlook the stylish bamboo groves designed by Craig Latker. Perfectly tucked away on this common level is a stylish powder room and family/media room and closet.
From the kitchen or the living area, you can step through La Cantina bifold doors onto the redwood deck to take in the canyon view before you. An upper lawn framed by pomegranate trees delights, while a lower garden area offers myriad options for additional landscaping.
At 693 Santa Ray, the ingenious floor plan reveals three beautiful bedrooms on the entry level, beautifully placed behind an eye-catching barn door just beyond a sleek and inviting transition space. The large owner’s suite delights with huge picture windows, wood floors, a built-in desk area, custom sconces by lighting designer Brendan Ravenhill, walk-in closet with custom shelving, and a stunning, spa-like bath with Neolith basalt-topped Leicht vanity, generous sink with dual faucets, and a large, luxurious shower with dual shower heads and teak platform and bench. Two additional bedrooms on this level are similarly light-filled, and like the owner’s suite, are warmed by inviting wood floors. A slick shared hallway bath with shower over tub completes the level.
693 Ray includes a two-car garage with 220v electric vehicle charging and storage, plus a laundry area on the entry level. It also has Frontpoint security system, EcoBee climate control, Rachio-controlled irrigation, and custom roller shades.
