~ Boasting quality craftsmanship, thoughtful attention to detail and high-end construction (including a commercial-grade foundation), this custom European-inspired residence was built in 2000 with the help of many talented artisans.
~ This stunning home is located in the sought-after Glorietta neighborhood, close to Glorietta Elementary school and Meadow Swim and Tennis Club and within a comfortable 18-mile commute to downtown San Francisco.
~ The home’s grand, double glass door entrance invites guest to admire the main foyer. Upon entering, guests are greeted with an array of thoughtful design features that are consistent throughout the residence including hand-scraped plaster walls, incredible ironwork by an Austrian master blacksmith, wide-planked, oil-finished European hardwood floors, high ceilings, and beautiful Bruckner doors and arched windows (with French and transom opening options).
~ The unique and inviting, hexagon-shaped living/dining great room features a heightened, hand-painted ceiling by San Francisco artist Lynne Rutter, skylights, wrought-iron chandelier with lights and candles, French doors to the exterior, wood-burning fireplace with decorative copper, and perfectly placed windows for an amazing array of natural light.
~ The European pine kitchen features a carved beam ceiling, Portorosso marble counters, stainless appliances, intricate copper hood, dual sinks, and beautiful exterior and garden views.
~ The connecting family room is anchored by a medallion ceiling with custom iron chandelier and the walls are planked in European pine. This intimate space could also be used a casual breakfast or dining nook – you decide!
~ The intricate, wrought iron, circular staircase (with temperature controlled wine cellar beneath) leads you to the sumptuous master retreat with Juliet balconies and executive study with custom bar area.
~ The master retreat includes a fireplace, built-in floor-to-ceiling bookcase, wrought iron lantern, sconces, chandeliers, and a spa-like en suite bath with oversized thermal soaking tub, stall shower tiled in Jerusalem marble, dual sinks, and dual walk-in wardrobe closets with custom organizer systems. To top it off, there are French doors to a delightful terrace featuring serene views by day and relaxing stargazing by night.
~ Three en suite secondary bedrooms are located on the main level each with built-in custom closets and connecting bathrooms with marble and top-of-the-line European hardware.
~ The pristine, half-acre property was terraced to allow for maximum outdoor living and entertaining. Exterior features include a welcoming front courtyard, Saltillo tile patios, upper flagstone terrace with an outdoor pavilion with a sink hook-up, multiple fountains, European-inspired landscape including antique Austrian bricks stamped with the Habsburg Dynasty crest, Italian cyprus-lined views of the surrounding Orinda hills, lush gardens, established oaks and six types of fruit trees.
