A wide path with lush green borders leads to the formal entryway 740 s.f. porte-cochere* of this private, exquisite estate with elegant grounds and a jaw-dropping covered pool. The home offers modern resort-like amenities amid classic splendor and elegance. Surrounded by hundreds of acres of open space for hiking, cycling, or birdwatching, you’ll savor all the comforts of a home created to delight the senses. Featured in a hit TV series and commercials due to its grand scale and bespoke finishes throughout, this property is impressive in every regard. A custom-built ~1,400 s.f. redwood pavilion* covers the pool, spa, and seating area; four fireplaces warm chilly evenings — the outside wood-burning hearth is especially beautiful! — and a sandy playground complete with a fort is ready for young adventurers. The gourmet chef’s kitchen has ample storage and plenty of beautiful soapstone counter space for prep, as well as casual island seating. On warm evenings fire up the grill to dine outside with friends and family. There’s plenty of room to entertain in fashion! The home is as comfortable inside as it is out. Up the gently curved staircase are four bedrooms, all featuring en-suite updated bathrooms with Waterworks fixtures and high-end tiling. The primary suite has a gas fireplace. The primary bathroom has double sinks, a spacious shower, and a spa-like round soaking tub with backyard views.  Of course, practicality abounds as well: The house has solar, the pool and spa are heated by gas, the entire home is wired for generator back-up, and the irrigation system is computerized. There are two hot water heaters and a recirculation pump and HEPA air filters to remove dust, pollen, or bacteria. The laundry room has an LG front-loading washer and dryer, and the mudroom does double duty with a wine refrigerator and dishwasher. The home is ideally located just down the street from the championship level Peacock Gap golf course and is also near the waterfront, tennis courts, and picnic areas at McNear Beach and the beaches and campgrounds at China Camp. This estate is a premier destination unto itself with easy access to San Francisco, wine country, fine dining, and amazing outdoor recreation. *Per Architect, Main residence - 4,786 sq ft , Pool Pavilion - 1,396.5 sq ft, Garage - 840 sq ft, Porch/Porte-Cochere - 740 sq ft, (Architectural and Landscape drawings available), .71 acres per tax records, 4 BD/ 4 BA + office, 4 Fireplaces: 3 indoor fireplaces (all gas) 1 outdoor (wood burning), Laundry room with extra storage, 3-Car garage w/epoxy floors, Waterworks fixtures in all bathrooms, Pantry with pull out drawers/Mud-room w/ wine refrigerator and GE dishwasher, Laundry room LG steam front load washer/dryer, Eat-in Kitchen: Thermador microwave, Miele dishwasher, Wolfe 6 burner top range w/double oven, Sub-zero built in refrigerator/freezer, Soapstone counters – island seating for 4+, Large sliding doors to outside, Adjacent family room, A/C upper level.
