Experience a lifestyle of unrivaled elegance in the exclusive cul-de-sac known as ''The Enclave of Lake Forest''.
The Enclave offers some of the most prestigious luxury homes offered by the sought after Lake Forest subdivision, and 3016 Long Creek Way is considered to be one of the very best. With over 11,0000 feet of living area, this 5 bedroom 8 bath home draws you in immediately from the street the moment it comes into view. As impressive as it is on the outside, the inside is really the main attraction. The inviting front porch leads you to the massive wood and iron front doors that give your guests a taste of what awaits them inside. Once inside, the stately foyer opens up to the floor above, and your attention is immediately drawn to the architectural detail and soaring ceilings. To the left of the front door, you will see a grand executive office with handsome wooden bookshelves and a fireplace, complimented by French doors dressed with solid wood blinds that lead to the front porch providing the ideal environment for productivity and focus. The elegant formal dining room is located just to the right and also has a Butler's pass through with a sink and a wine refrigerator encased in custom cabinetry. Straight ahead from the entrance, you will see the formal living room with expansive floor to ceiling windows and another one of the 5 fireplaces, flanked with impressive shelving on either side. The windows offer a peaceful view to the courtyard terrace and backyard area which is lined with trees for privacy. The perfect spot for breakfast, in my opinion. The designer had the insight to install extra bracing for a motorized living room chandelier in the future if needed - positioned in the center of the elegant coffered ceiling. The loaded gourmet kitchen features high-end stainless steel appliances, a recently replaced Fisher & Paykel subzero refrigerator, a convection oven as well as a Viking Professional steam oven and warming drawer and an 6 burner Viking Professional gas stove with double ovens and a pot filler on the customer tile backsplash. This kitchen provides two dishwashers- one dishwasher in the main area and one the entertaining bar between the kitchen and the great room houses another dishwasher, as well as a second sink, making it an after-party clean up dream. The walk-in pantry has ample storage space with beautiful wood shelving and cabinets. The great room angles perfectly off of the kitchen and breakfast area with an open floor plan which creates the ideal venue for entertaining or just relaxing at home. Another massive fireplace is the focal point of this space and leads your eye up to the wood beamed ceilings which add a rustic note of interest to this well-appointed high-end gathering area. There are two powder rooms located on this floor as well as a laundry room, large planning desk room or 2nd office area, a butler's pantry and the Owner's suite.

The large primary bedroom has its own sitting room with a fireplace, and beautiful windows and a sliding glass door- all of which overlook the peaceful backyard. Between the two walk-in closets, this wing of the home also has a private bricked in courtyard. Just outside in the backyard with access from the primary bedroom as well as the great room, the main outdoor living space expands the living area of the home. The open patio is best viewed from the formal living room and has access from the primary suite. The covered pavilion, accessed through the great room, features an outdoor kitchen with a grill, refrigerator, ice maker and sink. An island bar faces the outdoor kitchen and offers granite countertops and inviting stonework. The outdoor living room has a cozy fireplace and bench seating made into the privacy wall. There is also an uncovered area for a conversation area or enjoying the sunshine. Imagine hosting unforgettable gatherings under the stars, sizzling up gourmet meals on the state-of-the-art grill.

On this level, you will find 4 additional bedrooms, all with their own en-suite bathrooms and generously sized walk-in closets. There is a second full laundry area on this level as well as a common area with an iron-work opening, creating a Tuscan style overlook to the main level. One of these 2nd level bedrooms is extra-large, and has its own sitting area and reading nook.
The stairs located off of the main floor great room lead to the basement, or if preferred, take the elevator located in the main hall. Below the ground level, you will see and built-in shelving and a projector and screen (one of two theater style areas. This large area is great for game nights and entertaining and has plenty of room for extra furniture, seating and room for game tables. Angled to the left, you'll see a great place for a billiards table and further behind that a game room nook for a mini arcade. Weaving through this area, you enter a nook designed especially for the cigar connoisseur, a dedicated cigar room, complete with a spot for a temperature-controlled storage unit and a specific exhaust system for a proper cigar room. It's the perfect retreat for unwinding after a long day or relaxing with friends.

Finishing off this area, behind the iron gates, is the perfect wine cellar/Bourbon tasting space, as well as a safe room.
Arriving back at the ground level - you have a 5.5 car garage, and a great flat "basketball area" atop the driveway which combine the epitome of elegance and grandeur with easy lifestyle of modern living. Invisible fence has been installed and the convenience of an irrigation system will keep your lawn looking great throughout the year. Central Vacuum cleaner outlets are expertly located throughout the home with main unit in garage. One of my favorite features about this home is the on-demand hot water. Until you have been pampered with this, you may not appreciate this particular amenity, but oh how quickly we become accustomed.
