Sotheby’s International Realty: Privilege of Peace Amid the Magnificence of Nature

While seemingly miles away from everything, this property is remarkably convenient. Among the Bay Area’s prestigious communities, the location offers the privilege of peace amid the magnificence of nature, yet it is just 10 miles away from San Francisco. A wide array of local shops and restaurants are just minutes away, as are excellent schools, parks, and open space.

Rarely is there a home of this magnitude––one so unique in its remarkable collection of ecological materials, built with absolute respect for the environment, and yet magnificently appointed with chic sophistication. This unparalleled offering is the culmination of the owners’ vision to create one of the largest ecologically correct homes in America, all while celebrating art, form, and function. Taking five years to complete, this spectacular estate home is a triumph of architectural design by Sim Van der Ryn. The setting unfolds over 11 all-organic acres with verdant views across rolling hillsides and out to the iconic San Francisco skyline.

Spanning approximately 9,725 square feet, the main residence is arranged over two levels with a five-star master suite located in its own wing and three additional bedrooms in a separate wing that are ideal for family members. Guests are easily accommodated in a separate home with two bedrooms, while quarters for staff members include ample office locations. An integrated fitness center, wine cellar, and regulation racquetball court complete the accommodations.

Befitting this estate built with utmost respect for the environment, the grounds are equally sustainable and fully organic with native California landscaping and towering eucalyptus trees. Commercial quality fruit and vegetable gardens create a farmer’s market milieu; a sun-swept pool, spa, and sport court provide endless hours of fitness and recreation; and strolling paths wind in endless succession for taking in the property’s beauty and enjoying its iconic views.
