It’s a home with the best views inManteca.

You can step out onto the spacious balconies that cover more square footage than the average Manteca home and enjoy an unobstructed view of the sun rising over the Sierra while enjoying morning coffee or you can watch it fade away over the Coastal Ranges in the West.

You can see the latest flick released on DVD by going to your own 25-seat theater with THX Sound, shoot some pool and play an arcade game or two in the extra large games room, take a dip in the swimming pool, or play a round of tennis.

If you want to go for a walk, you don’t have to leave your “yard” to get in mileage. There’s 184 acres that go with the home.

It’s all part of the Sedan Estate – arguably the most impressive home now for sale in the entire Northern San Joaquin Valley.

Listed for $9.9 million through Allison Chinchiolo (939-9292) of PMZ Real Estate, prequalified buyers can take a gander at the three parcels with a combined 184 acres with 147 of those acres planted with producing Chardonnay grapes plus the 30,000 square foot home.

The land itself – which represents the largest chunk of available property contiguous for Manteca that is available for residential development – is easily worth $9.9 million.

The Sedan Estate is visible from Highway 99 to the west in a sightline with the palms along Palm Avenue as you approach Manteca form the south as well as visible from every .

The buyer – if they ultimately just wanted the home – could easily hold onto the land taking advantage of the eight ton per acre Chardonnay grape production then sell off two of the parcels as development moves south toward the proposed 1,050-acre Austin Road Business Park in the next 5 to 25 years.

The parcels happen to border the proposed east-west extension of McKinley Avenue that will ultimately parallel Woodward Avenue about a mile to the south and connect with the proposed $120 million Austin Road interchange midway from the existing interchange and Olive Avenue in Ripon.

Consider just a few of the home’s high points:

•The second floor consists of four 500 square foot bedrooms with separate baths. To put that in perspective, each bedroom is almost as large as an entire one bedroom apartment.

•The master suite has a balcony overlooking the property, two separate bathrooms featuring custom marble work, a gas fireplace, bar, sunken tub, two walk-in closets, and a barreled ceiling.

•The first floor office-library is completely floored and paneled in Brazilian cherry wood and has its own fireplace plus built-in drawers.

•The kitchen features every conceivable appliance including two dishwashers, two trash compactors, two subzero refrigerators (one in kitchen, one in pantry), two Viking double ovens with bread warmers, two full kitchen sings, a Viking professional model gas stove top and burner and 39-inch deep granite counters.

•The great room has 28-fooot high ceilings, three ornate chandeliers, and one of the largest fireplaces you’re ever going to see.

•The full-sized basement is also a full-size garage complete with a wine clear plumbed for refrigeration and an elevator running all the way to the third floor.

•The swimming pool is 20 by 80 feet and features a spa with a waterfall. There are approved plans for pool house and a cabana.

•There is a concrete heliport.

And, as an added bonus, there is a separate office away from the house. It is built inside of a metal Butler-style building and features a grand office with a fully finished kitchen, enclosed wine cellar, dishwasher, microwave, halogen range, and laundry hook-up. The office is wired to a dedicated T1 line and broadcasts the connection to the main house wirelessly.

To top it all off, when the metal doors are rolled up it reveals panoramic full-size window walls and marble flooring.
