Custom built by the owner-builder, this stunning estate showcases exceptional architectural detailing, fine finishes and an open floor plan celebrating indoor-outdoor living.
The 2.5-acre property dotted with dozens of oak trees offers an unparalleled, ultra-private setting and unrivaled attention to every detail.
Inspired by the land’s topography, the home was designed on three levels, each with access to outdoor venues, spectacular views of thousands of acres of open space and the warm, bright glow of natural light. The home was completed in 2008.
Located at the southern end of the Almaden Valley in the exclusive Cinnabar Hills neighborhood, the home is near the intersection of the Hacienda Trail and the New Almaden Trail and Almaden Quicksilver County Park. This historic park and mining museum features more than 4,100 acres of parkland, including Los Capitancillos Ridge and more than 34 miles of hiking trails, 23 miles of equestrian trails, and 10 miles of bike trails. This rural location, however, is just an eight-minute drive to the markets. Top-rated schools are within 3 miles, including Graystone Elementary, Bret Harte Middle and Leland High School.
About 5,000 square feet of living space showcases five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, two powder rooms, an executive office, formal living and dining rooms, and a spectacular gourmet kitchen open to a large family room that seamlessly connects to outdoor venues.
Outdoor entertaining is a breeze under the pergola with a complete built-in kitchen and sprawling patios, including a bar outfitted with a refrigerator, sink, and granite counters. The design of the saltwater pebble tec pool will take your breath away. Imagine an unobstructed mountain view looming at the infinity edge with a nearby spa and waterfall feature.
Behind the custom alder and leaded glass front door is a two-story foyer, a grand imperial-style staircase, Old World textured walls, porcelain tile flooring, decorative and soaring coffered ceilings, crown molding, and custom ironwork. Each room is generous in size, and the bathrooms feature furniture-style vanities and vessel sinks.
The sumptuous primary suite is awash in natural light with north-facing views of Mount Hamilton and west- and east-facing balconies. This suite also features a walk-in closet with built-ins and an en suite bathroom designed with two vanities, vessel sinks, a Jacuzzi tub, and an oversize shower. Two bedrooms in the same wing are large rooms with west-facing mountain views. They share a large bathroom with a dual-sink vanity, tiled floor and decorative tile accents. Two additional bedrooms include a main-level en suite bedroom and a lower-level two-room suite with a private entry and deck.
An executive office is behind a glass French door entry. This room has a sliding glass door to a private balcony with mountain views, hardwood floors, wainscot and picture frame molding detailing.
A formal living room features a fireplace, a wine bar and Juliet balconies framing mountain views. A sizable dining room is designed to accommodate large gatherings and offers amazing views on two sides.
Step into the gourmet kitchen that features multiple prep stations, a 9-by-3-foot island plus a breakfast bar with seating for at least six, granite counters with a subway tile backsplash, custom glazed soft-close cabinetry, and a bar with a wine refrigerator, upper glass-faced cabinets, and granite counter. Appliances include a JennAir oven and six-burner cooktop, a GE microwave, a two-year young KitchenAid 48-inch built-in refrigerator, and a new dishwasher.
The open floor plan of the kitchen and living room has a total of four sliding doors to the outside patios and pool area.
Additional features include a three-car garage with epoxy flooring and finished walls, private driveway entry, custom landscape illumination, dual HVAC, Nest thermostats, and dual-pane windows with new custom casing.
