5010 Chipita Pines Drive

This spectacular custom home rests on a rolling 2.5-acre lot that abounds with lush vegetation, towering pines and spectacular views of the mountains. Located in a gated community, the home was custom built as a builder’s personal residence in 2009 at a cost of $1,900,000!  As you tour the home, it is apparent that the home offers meticulous attention to detail and that no expense was spared during the building process.
