A custom-built Loomis mansion hit the market Wednesday for $5.25 million with a host of captivating amenities, including a 600-foot trail through a landscaped garden, frog, koi and turtle ponds and an infinity edge pool with expansive Folsom Lake views.
Inside the home, however, you might miss a feature fit for royalty — if you don’t look up. Hand-painted frescoes adorn the ceiling coving in the primary bedroom suite. Granite Bay artist Teresa Fike created the panels, which depict rural and domestic scenes, according to listing agent Deanna Erdman of Guide Real Estate.
Built in 2006 by insurance and financial services professional Steven Kaneski, the refined five-bedroom, five-bathroom home spans 7,194 square feet. Kaneski died in 2018, and the home at 9692 Sterling Pointe Court is being sold through a trust.
On the grounds of the 2.8-acre property, a pathway meanders through a botanical garden on one side of the main house, and a zero-edge pool sends an arching spray across the length and width of the water. An outdoor kitchen, fire pit and rose garden offer spaces for entertaining and relaxing. There’s also a one-bedroom guest house off the front motor court.
The entrance to the elegant main residence is dramatic from the moment you walk in. A double-entry staircase in the foyer takes you upstairs to the secondary bedrooms, a home theater and a large open patio that loos over the pool. With the front door open, guests can look straight through the entrance and out to the pool and the green hills that lead down to where the north fork of the American River meets Folsom Lake.
“It’s a spectacular vision as soon as you get to the front gates,” co-listing agent Parmis Pourarian of Guide Real Estate said. “As soon as those gates open, and you’ve got a koi pond on the left, and you’ve got a turtle pond on the right, it just sets the mood of what you’re about to see.”
The vibe of the estate changes when the sun goes down, she added.
“The mood of the house completely changes in the evening, so then the lake goes dark, the Italian lights turn on, the pool fountain and lights go on. The fire pits (light up),” she said.
The home breathes custom-made details in the woodwork and trim throughout, but at the same time is comfortable and flows easily from inside to outside living. There’s a sumptuous library and billiards room with a fireplace, a formal dining room with gilded ceilings and a gourmet chef’s kitchen.
“As you drive into the circular driveway, you will immediately recognize the incredible detail and craftsmanship of the property,” according to the listing. “As you enter, you can’t help but stand and take it all in.”
The $5.25 million price tag doesn’t make it the most expensive listing ever seen in Loomis, but that price point definitely puts the estate at the upper end of luxury residential properties, according to Sacramento real estate appraiser Ryan Lundquist.
“The $5 million price point isn’t ultra common, but over the past couple of years buyers in the Sacramento regional market have seemed to break above this threshold,” he said in an email to The Sacramento Bee. “Loomis has become a hotbed for luxury properties over the past decade, and it’s no surprise that the highest residential MLS sale ever took place in Loomis at $7 million in April.”
Since 2021, five residential sales in the Sacramento region have sold above the $5 million mark. Three sales above that price are pending in Loomis, Auburn and Davis, Lundquist said.
