Main Level


ALL THE BEST ELEMENTS OF A GENTEEL ESTATE in the European countryside are beautifully realized in this estate property built in 2003. Heritage construction details abound, including multiple fireplaces, broad expanses of fine oak flooring, and extensive designer stone and tile work. State-of-the-art technology fulfills the most modern expectations, San Francisco Bay views provide endless visual appeal, and resort-inspired amenities appear at every turn. The result is a relaxed yet formal environment that lends itself to comfortable daily living as well as lavish entertaining.

Enhancing this carefully planned design is a flowing floor plan over three levels plus a separate fully equipped guest house perfect for poolside entertaining or extended family living. Providing generous and flexible accommodations are 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms including two bedrooms on the lower level perfect for guest and staff needs. A theatre, climate-controlled wine cellar, and luxurious spa are highlights of the sumptuous interior while a pool, spa, sport court, and golf practice area combine for the best in outdoor living. Numerous water features, including a majestic waterfall, fill the air with sounds of nature while three barbecue kitchens provide everything needed for grand catered affairs or intimate dinners under the stars. Strolling paths throughout the grounds culminate at an impressive, elevated gazebo – no better place to take in the glorious views.

Offering the ultimate in privacy at the end of a cul-de-sac, this estate property also benefits from a close-in Palo Alto location that puts top-rated Palo Alto schools and downtown Palo Alto and Los Altos amenities close at hand.
