Set in the lower Claremont Hills on an expansive lot within a short walk to shopping and coffee, this 5-bedroom / 5.5-bath property is an expression of utmost luxury and exclusivity. Designed by famed Bay Area architect David Stark Wilson, the home is perfectly sited for maximum privacy, comfort and enjoyment. Designed for maximum privacy and harmony with the surrounding nature, it has soaring ceilings, beautiful detailing and perfectly combines industrial and natural materials with precision and poetry.
A dramatic home with saturated colors, pitched roof lines and vaulted ceilings, it is comprised of three separate structures, two of which are connected by a glass hallway separating public from private rooms. A transparent breezeway allows for views out to the courtyards and the San Francisco Bay. Built around a stunning courtyard with a pool, spa and several seating areas overlooking the view, the courtyard acts as an outdoor living space and is perfect for entertaining, relaxing and enjoying the Bay Area’s almost year-round spring-like climate. The interior is characterized by a dramatic open floor plan, soaring ceilings and exquisite materials. Countless custom details throughout the home are magnificently conceived and masterfully executed by accomplished craftsmen such as stainless-steel front gate, striking custom walnut cabinetry, exposed concrete walls and solid zinc shingles on the outside. Many energy saving features such as cellulose insulation in the walls and a geothermal system for heating and cooling, solar energy systems for the home’s electricity and heating that make the house close to “net zero”.
A rare combination of design, craftsmanship, privacy and location, this unique property is for the most distinguished buyers!
