This engineering and architectural masterpiece is a one-of-a-kind residence “like a piece of sculpture that someone happens to live in.” This quote, from the owner who created this work of art, aptly describes the natural envelope of architectural poured-in-place concrete walls, glass, Cor-Ten steel, and mahogany. Designed for the terrain, with three graceful above-ground levels, the home is also positioned to take full advantage of far-reaching views to the San Francisco skyline and beyond, the East Bay hills, and far south to San Jose. Receiving numerous architectural and design awards, the home is enveloped with entire walls of mahogany and steel- framed glass on every level, each opening to private outdoor venues overlooking the views, 74-foot triple-infinity edge pool and spa, and the landscaped grounds that also serve as living works of art. 

At almost 8,500 square feet, this property lives equally well for an individual or couple as it does for a large family. Three levels and three individual structures offer the utmost in privacy while still feeling connected to each other and to the landscape. Myriad options for working-at-home are available, including a bedroom with private foyer and front entrance. Additionally, two separate buildings, one with full kitchen and completely out of view from the main residence, provide flexible accommodations for guests, staff, fitness, and office needs. If desired, a second driveway with a separate address would be permitted for this property.

Equally impressive are the 3.7-acre fully fenced and landscaped grounds with a triple infinity-edge pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, meditation walks, plus above-ground vegetable gardens and fruit and olive orchards. Featured in numerous books, magazines, and commercials, this is indeed a property of striking architectural design, comfort, convenience, and absolute luxury – all in one of the most exclusive communities midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
