“Wow.” That’s the first word that comes to mind when describing this slick new masterpiece by Robert Swatt, of the renowned Swatt | Miers Architect team and offered by listing agents David Kelsey and Christine Pimlott, both with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage of Woodside. Standing atop a magnificent view lot in Los Altos Hills, this sweeping 10,817 square-foot modern residence offers multiple “wow” moments as it overlooks the Bay, the East Bay mountains and all of Silicon Valley, including the 3,000 open-space acres of Rancho San Antonio.

“The suspense builds as you approach a private road,” says Kelsey. An electric gate opens and reveals a monumental home, rendered flawlessly in laser-measured Machiche wood (a Brazilian hardwood), smooth stucco and glass. A massive, pivoted front door opens to 24-foot ceilings and seamless interior spaces, with a jaw-dropping kitchen featuring a gorgeous waterfall island. Walk through the house — the living room, the family room, the office — and you will find walls of glass that slide open to sun-lit decks, which are “both glamorous and intimate,” says Pimlott.  Oh yes. You can already imagine entertaining your friends and family here…

Five total bedrooms, including master suites on both the ground and upper levels, offer privacy, comfort and lots of light. Meanwhile, “a lower level will leave you struggling to choose between the enormous lounge area with bar, the private theater or the gym,” adds Kelsey.

Located close to Stanford University and just 30 minutes from both San Francisco and San Jose International Airports, this magnificent home is positively eye-dropping. From the decks, an infinity edge pool, and beyond to a guest house, it is a rare work of art for Silicon Valley.

This is special residence is offered at $18,000,000.  For more information, contact David Kelsey at (650) 388-2086 or Christine Pimlott at (650) 291-7191 and check out the listing’s website here.
