1286562984CUPERTINO, SILICON VALLEY, USA – October 6, 2010 – 16370 Reynolds Drive is an architectural masterpiece and referred to as “Over the Top” one of a kind construction. Located in the most desirable street in exclusive Paradise Valley, this stunning home on 1.6 acres is the finest quality home to ever reach South County. Owners Sal and Becky envisioned a magnificent home with a mixture of rustic Old World and casual elegance. Realizing that they wanted only the finest materials and construction, they embarked upon building their dream home.

To further assist in their vision, Sal and Becky hired Michael Bonfante to design the fabulous gardens and landscape of this spectacular home. Michael is best known as the founder of Bonfante Gardens Theme Park in Gilroy and is also known as a well respected philanthropist and landscape designer. Michael’s inspiration and vision for the landscape design was to create two totally independent elements; the front yard and the back yard. The front yard feels dramatic and intimate. It creates an environment fit for family, friends or visiting political dignitaries. The backyard on the other hand provides a living experience and serves as a direct extension of the living space.

To create the lived in feel, Michael designed the landscape using over 100 types of trees including 39 different varieties. To further enhance the landscape he also brought in natural works of art in the form of large, unique rocks for personality, a natural waterfall cascading into the pool and a one of a kind custom designed gazebo. In addition multiple flower beds were also added for a touch of color throughout the yard. The landscape design ran close to ½ million for this perfect executive home.

Mitch Mazzetti Construction built this prestigious home and refers to it as the finest he has ever seen or even imagined. The views alone are amazing from this 5898 Sq. Ft. of living space plus an additional 1200 Sq. Ft. bonus room above the garage. Interior features include 4 luxurious bedroom suites and 5.5 baths adorned with stone and pewter vessel sinks, faux painting and marble floors. The kitchen is a master chef’s dream kitchen perfect for large families and entertaining complete with a large butler pantry, granite and marble counter tops, custom birch cabinets, stainless steel appliances and separate island with sink.

The extraordinary amenities extend all around starting with the state of the art wine cellar that accommodates 1200 bottles, old world stone floor, stone entrance and a separate A/C unit. This gorgeous home has solid hand scraped 8” old world walnut hardwood floors, soaring 14’-18’ ceilings, a layered lighting effect throughout the home and a dramatic dining room accented by custom chandeliers.

The exquisite exterior features include a gated front entrance that leads to an impressive driveway designed with 18,000 Sq. Ft. of natural pavers, copper exterior doors and windows, gorgeous stone patio, solar heated pool with spa and waterfall, a one of a kind custom antique slate roof and 2 separate 4+ car garages with custom 18” solid core doors, finished walls with recessed lighting, utility sink, granite counters and a craft area.

This is an exceptional South County home close to Silicon Valley but secluded in the country that combines elaborate exterior detailing from the superb landscaping to the details and custom design. Grand, yet livable interior, the home showcases the best of lasting and timeless design and craftsmanship.
