About the Property

Skillfully built by locally renowned Al Vial, this is the place where the timeless appeal of mid-century modern minimalism converges with the sustainability-driven charm of country living. This gated estate is surrounded by private gardens with bubbling fountains, gazebos, & flower beds. Past the solid mahogany front door, you will be captivated by the extravagant floor-to-ceiling windows that bring the outdoors in. The Emperador Dark Spanish Marble entry blends contemporary design with scenic views & makes the perfect dance floor for your next party! Intimate conversations unfold while friends are nestled into the blue-red sofas surrounding the wood-burning fireplace. And environmentalists will appreciate the eco-friendly qualities of the Lopi triple-burn stove. Floating above, iconic George Nelson Bubble Lamps radiate a subtle diffused glow. Kitchen designer Sue Hoss created the seamless efficiency you'll experience with the integration of modern features like the appliance lift, spice drawer, cookie sheet cabinet, appliance garage, & trash garage. A separate room serves as a pantry, storage area, & laundry room. A pull- down ladder accesses the attic above, where you can store all your holiday decorations. The family room sits casually off the kitchen, sharing a breathtaking view of the woodland. From the primary suite, you overlook expansive pastures where cattle graze in the spring. Deep Bing-Cherry- Red Tile frames the shower with views. When you visit, be sure to save time to leisurely wander the grounds. You'll find flowers, herbs, & vegetables, gardens, berries, & fruit trees. The landscape is dotted with Deodar Cedars, Aleppo Pine, Magnolia Grandiflora, & Dogwood. Relax on one of the secluded benches to enjoy the wildlife as the sunlight dances through the trees. Imagine what seasonal change will bring as the Ginkgo Biloba flutters bright yellow. Your greenhouse is complete with watering, evaporative cooling & air-recirculating systems. In the late afternoon, wander over to the east garden, relax under the grape arbor, & enjoy the deliciousness of Concord grapes... It almost feels like Italy. On a hot summer day, a pool of cool water awaits you under an umbrella of Majestic Blue Oak trees. Next to the house is a barn where you'll find dog kennels, tractors, workbenches, & a lot of tools! Down by the seasonal creek is a metal barn where horses used to be. Please request supplements for more details. OWNED SOLAR.
