Flawlessly integrating form and function, this exceptional residence is an architectural statement of indoor/outdoor luxury. Inspired by resorts in the South Pacific, the home takes full advantage of views in every direction – from the verdant western hills to the iconic skyline of San Francisco and vistas across Silicon Valley. Precision craftsmanship is showcased in the work of builder Custom Dreams in Real Estate who created this masterpiece for the current owners in 2008. The pervasive use of mahogany, Australian hardwood, and Bay fieldstone establishes a rich, meditative tone. Tremendous walls of glass provide a seamless connection to the outdoors, nowhere more inviting than on the vast terrace with a vanishing-edge pool that blurs into the colors of the distant mountains.
The design is open and voluminous with a floor plan that works equally well for a single, family, or multigenerational household. A series of distinct spaces for formal entertaining and casual living are at the heart of the home. A sumptuous master suite encompasses the upper level, complete with private office and two full bathrooms, while a dedicated spa and fitness center unfold in a private wing off the pool terrace for the ultimate in relaxation and well-being.
Offering the quintessential California lifestyle in an unparalleled setting, this architecturally significant home is just over one mile to the Los Altos Village and a short distance to tech centers throughout Silicon Valley.

Incorporated in 1956, the Town of Los Altos Hills is a premier Silicon Valley residential community located adjacent to the City of Los Altos, thirty-five miles south of San Francisco, five miles south of Stanford University and seventeen miles north of downtown San Jose. The advocates of incorporation were dedicated to the “preservation of the rural atmosphere of the foothills and orderly and unhurried growth”.
Residents are encouraged to become active in Town governance, serve on Town committees and participate in local events. Moreover, residents should avail themselves of the unique rural nature of Los Altos Hills by using the extensive pathways system, enjoying the views, visiting the preserves and meeting neighbors in the process.
