Fairytale Wow-Factor Pad With Stunning Views!
Built in 1979 by one man, a gifted carpenter who handcrafted each wood shingle himself, the house was inspired by a Tahoe log cabin.
It was preserved in this state until 2017 when the house was purchased by the current owners and every inch lovingly and painstakingly renovated in a luxurious contemporary style with no expense spared!
As you enter it seems like an unusual English country house with a fantasy garden of roses and mature trees. The one of a kind ‘hobbit door’ flanked by stones could never prepare you for the surprise that awaits!
Grand, expansive open plan spaces with dramatic Italian light fittings, bountiful natural light and 26 foot cathedral ceilings amaze and delight the senses along with humorous artful touches like a Union Jack door and colourful modern art.
The luxury Siematic chef’s kitchen is of the highest quality and has everything you could imagine. The living, dining and kitchen areas all open to the magical English country style garden with utterly spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay, reaching all the way to the Bay Bridge and The East Bay on a clear day. Unmissable sunrises.
