  • Masterfully Constructed Modern Home



    Completed in 1998, this home was built to blend in seamlessly with the remarkable gardens that have been lovingly cultivated. Key to the design was creating a home that would take full advantage of this extraordinary setting with inspiration from a Japanese palace known for the harmonious way it combines simple architecture with its surrounding landscape. The main house is completely woven into the gardens, looking out across the open lawn to the far-reaching pool and guest house. The design includes numerous architectural details built to the highest engineering and seismic standards, a residence with traditional comfort using subtle, natural materials, and incorporates art into the architecture. Walls of glass allow the home to be opened entirely to the outdoors. Floating curved stainless steel roofs a signature of the design  add an element of drama in the living room and master suite, and seemingly minimalist spaces are detailed with cedar and Douglas fir finishes at every turn. The two-story floor plan, connected by elevator, works equally well for hosting grand-scale gatherings as it does for everyday intimate living. A 2-bedroom pool pavilion/guest house and a 1-bedroom apartment augment the 3 bedrooms and office in the main home, providing lavish accommodations for a variety of lifestyle needs. The landscaped grounds, oversized pool, and absolute privacy of the setting on more than 2.6 acres add the finishing touch to this exceptional home in Silicon Valley’s most sought-after community
