The custom French Country estate sits on 101 acres in Alamo with rolling hillsides and valleys. The home’s double gates lead to a stunning main house with a European courtyard entry.
The eight-bedroom home has massive formal rooms with double-height ceilings that add to the sense of luxury and grandeur. Many rooms have expansive windows that frame the uncluttered landscape. An elevator leads to a wine cellar with a dining room, powder room, and dumbwaiter for tasting in true style. The huge kitchen is adjacent to large staff offices, laundry area, and large family room.
The second floor master bedroom feels like its own apartment with gym. Also upstairs is a home theatre and additional en suite bedrooms. The home’s finishes weren’t just informed by French style; many surfaces, fabrics, and decorator items throughout were hand-selected and imported from Europe.
A separate outbuilding is designed for the car aficionado. Detached from the main house is a two-story structure that can house 10 collector cars and also features a large formal entertainment room with wet bar and powder bath with an upstairs that houses offices and staff apartments.
The grounds include vast lawns, European-style gardens, pool, pool house, spa, tennis and more.
