In a lush hollow lies this oasis, a wonderland of flexible space and possibility. From the cul-de-sac, stroll down the paver driveway noticing the details tucked into every nook. Rising to the left, wrapping above the three-car garage, find a multipurpose studio with its separate entrance. Outfitted with a mirror-lined wall and hardwood floors for dance space, the studio also hosts components of this smart homePs Crestron system, including ubiquitous surround sound audio as well as a movie theater, featuring a mounted projector and screen in this cavernous space.
Continuing along the driveway, notice the fruit orchard on your right as you pass underneath a Japanese maple and cross over a fountain-graced koi pond via a delightful footbridge, arriving at the main entrance. Inside the home, to your left is the exquisite kitchen with its voluminous high-gloss wood cabinetry, giant granite-topped island, luxury appliances, built-in seating, wood-burning stove, and slate floors that extend into the neighboring powder and dining rooms. A staircase at the rear of the dining room leads you to the homePs second floor, awash in natural light, where you can gaze at north/east views overlooking Palo Alto, Moffett Field, and the Bay. On this floor, imagine the endless possibilities for this divided space with its three large rooms, full bathroom, gas fireplace, wetbar area, and storage closets. Presently in use as office space, a family room, and billiards room, this space with its unbeatable views, skylights, storage closets, and wrap-around decks easily could become a dream master suite with an in-home office, a teen cave, or an in-law unit. Returning downstairs, walk through the dining room to the living room with its warm brick--surround gas fireplace.
Past the living room lies the hallway to the bedroom spaces. Note the hand-carved bedroom and bathroom doors that are original to the home, crafted by a wood artistan from Marin and once featured in Sunset magazine. Two hall bedrooms share a full bathroom with jacuzzi tub/shower and dual sink. At the hallwayPs end lies the homePs master suite, mirroring the woodland outdoors. Wood-carved built-in furniture, stained glass, and a raised gas fireplace are the hallmarks of this unique retreat. A cabana with a half-bath and sauna separates the master suite from the pool deck behind the home. In the front corner, find an enormous walk-through master closet area en route to a sunken jacuzzi bath suite, which boasts access to a private deck and garden escape.
The living room, dining area, one hall bedroom, and master suite open to the rear pool deck, with its two-story cascading waterfall and tiered landscaping. The Pebble Tec pool is long enough for lap swimming and features a built-in hot tub. Abutting the pool, enjoy a barbeque area with a built-in bar. Rocks disguise built-in outdoor speakers powered by the homePs Crestron system.
Returning to the front of the home, notice the gazebo once used to house peacocks for this property, which could easily showcase a menagerie. Beyond the gazebo and downstairs, up your game with this fully-lighted tennis hardcourt with its own viewing deck. From the tennis court, a lavender-lined, solar-lighted trail wraps around to the driveway. Sit on the bench along the walkway, taking notice of the breathtaking views, including your own owl house, underneath which you might see an occasional rafter of turkeys or grazing deer. Take this moment to bask in the shade of one of the mature trees, with branches that invite climbing or a swing, and consider the magnitude of possibility that this luxurious property offers to an inventive family which desires flexible space with every detail considered, from vast recreational outdoor space to myriad indoor rooms with artistic flair for distinct purposes.
