Features & Amenities
Old world elegance and charm meet new world luxury and amenity in this almost 7,000 square-foot Tuscan Villa. Nestled within a gated enclave in Alamo, this estate was designed and constructed in 2007 with exquisite attention to detail, scale, material, texture and landscape. With a 3 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom main house that also includes an office, loft/study, theatre, wine cellar and bonus room, separate guest suite, and independent 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom guest house, it is a sanctuary for family and friends.
A stunning double-entry door leads into an impressive foyer, welcoming you on arrival. The open and connected floor plan of the main house is perfect for entertaining, with a great room, built-in bar, and formal dining room. The living room is an architectural masterpiece, complete with soaring ceilings, arched windows, and a grand fireplace. The thoughtful placement of granite, marble, wide-plank Walnut and travertine flooring, custom-wrought iron, and custom-built cabinetry bring the spirit and character of Tuscany throughout the home.
A fabulous great room is adorned with a handsome stone fireplace and exposed wooden ceiling beams. The built-in bar leads to a climate-controlled, glass-enclosed wine cellar. A spacious bonus room, with a full bath, could be used as an additional bedroom. A plush ten-seat theater is perfect for small family gatherings or hosting friends for a movie night.
The kitchen is the heart of this Tuscan Villa, equipped with contemporary appliances and technology while steeped in old world elegance. It features a large island with breakfast bar and prep sink, slab countertops, oil-rubbed bronze fixtures, a pristine Dacor six-burner range with double oven, and an additional built-in oven and microwave, Bosch dishwasher, and refrigerator/freezer. The adjacent butler's pantry features a warming drawer and leads to the spacious, walk-in pantry with custom cabinetry and stone backsplash.
The master bedroom is a personal retreat, with a beautiful fireplace and its own balcony overlooking the spacious backyard with breathtaking views of Mt. Diablo. The master bath boasts marble flooring, a luxurious deep-soaking tub, a glass enclosed shower with steam shower and rain head, dual vanity areas, and two generous walk-in closets.
Two additional en-suite bedrooms with walk-in closets are located upstairs, while the loft room could also make a wonderful home office. The private guest suite is outfitted with a mini-kitchen and bath to function as an independent guest home. The detached guest house is perfect for welcoming family and friends for longer visits, fitted with a full kitchen, living room, dining area, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and laundry. The exquisite medallion in the front entry draws your eye to beautiful travertine flooring. A private patio gives guests an ideal spot to enjoy the backyard and BBQ.
Nestled on .91 acres, the landscaped backyard is a private oasis that transports you to Tuscany with Cypress trees, Petit Sirah vines, bespoke stone walls and iron railings, and a charming water feature. The rear facades of the buildings offer transitional spaces to enjoy the secluded beauty of the backyard through outdoor patios, a bocce court, and an outdoor kitchen complete with pizza oven, which beckon with gorgeous views of Mt. Diablo. The main terrace features a large patio area for al fresco dining and a fire-pit adorned by twinkling lights above.
