At Last…

 

You’ve found your personal nirvana. A lavish sanctuary atop 1.5 acres of lush Danville hillside--a never-to-be-forgotten 10,000+ sq. ft. signature residence with museum panache and a footprint equally well suited to family life and grand-scale entertaining. This modern and expanded indoor-outdoor layout with all-season dining, bar, open-air lounges and private balconies, capitalizes on fantastic vistas of the Las Trampas foothills and an overarching pastoral atmosphere. Extraordinary design, exceptional architectural inspiration and luxe resort-inspired grounds go hand in hand in this spectacular secluded setting bordered by vineyards yet only minutes from downtown Danville, convenient commuting options, and top-rated schools.

 

A Dream that You Can Call Your Own… Impeccable and eminently tasteful, this astonishing residence reflects the inspired stamp of a master team of architects and decorators. Behind front security gates, a driveway lengthy enough for all your guests to park, and double stacked front glass doors with decorative iron overlays, privacy and discretion are guaranteed; yet there’s never a need to be shy in expressing yourself. The warm Mediterranean façade nods to tradition before segueing into an unabashedly modern interior aesthetic heralded by the jaw-dropping foyer anchored by a two-story crystal ‘waterfall’ art piece that gracefully sends shards of light bouncing and shimmering off every surface. A circular staircase with bronze and cream striped walls winds dramatically up to lofted upper hallways that lead to the ‘bonus level’: an en suite bedroom perfect for in-laws or guests with its own large step-out balcony, a theater room, half bath, and a carpeted study suitable for use as a playroom or meditation room.

 

A Thrill that You’ve Never Known… The public areas of this remarkable home radiate with joy and creativity, lending a sense of exhilaration to otherwise formal spaces. The living room soars with 35+ foot ceilings featuring bowed, hand-carved beams and the regal dining room playfully juxtaposes fringed Prohibition-inspired chandeliers with a windowed view of the huge restaurant-style wine room with translucent display racks and movable ladder system. The showcase kitchen is a parade of custom wood-paneled appliances surrounding a 20-ft. marble island, augmented by a sunny eat-in alcove with TV, the décor tied together by gorgeous plank hardwood floors and delightful chandeliers resembling cascades of tiny balloons. Wide arched doorways simultaneously separate and unite the rooms, fostering warm togetherness while maintaining a sense of organization and calm. On the warm evenings characteristic of this temperate wine-producing region, throw the doors open and revel in the outdoor dining pergola with its fully retractable nano walls, ‘100 candle’ chandeliers, heaters, and sound system. The deluxe bar is perfect for the discerning mixologist, two sides open to the outside for walk-up guests, and one to a counter in the family room, where trademark wood-beamed high ceilings will encourage you to relax in comfort.

 

Here We Are in Heaven… By day or by night, seemingly endless spaces support a vibrant lifestyle well balanced with blissful solitude and rejuvenation. The stunning backyard with its 70-foot infinity-edge pool, romantic LED-lit spa, enormous expanses of flat lawns, and huge sun decks can host large gatherings or meditative solo sunset swims. Sheltered open air lounges and courtyards with fireplaces and TVs afford intimate spots lovely for chic cocktail parties and al fresco movie nights a deux. Visitors can stroll the private vineyards, play bocce, picnic, or admire your exclusive collection in the six-car auto showroom with dealership-style display carousel and handsome viewing lounge. The southeast residential wing of the residence is a refuge featuring the owners’ retreat, C-level executive office with vaulted ceilings and private patio, and a deluxe gym with inspiring views of the pool area, alongside three additional en suite bedrooms. The primary suite boasts peerless luxury with dual walk-in closet rooms, sleek fireplace and sitting area, the incomparable modern verve radiating from the objet d’art chandelier with its rainbow of jewel-tone crystals. The accompanying spa bath will inspire you to breathe deeply with its bay windowed soaking tub and decadent expanses of marble; two complete laundry rooms include premium appliances, frosted glass cabinets, even a utility shower. Every en suite bedroom boasts spare-no-expense fit and finish including French doors, open beam ceilings, slab marble, panoramic vistas and artisan lighting and plumbing fixtures for maximum impact. In this once-in-a-lifetime home, life is like a song. Hear the unforgettable lyrics and smile.
