Rarely does a California home evoke the true essence of the French countryside, particularly one with such close-in convenience. This Chateau is a rare exception – a sprawling property designed around Merlot vineyards, orchards, and magnificent grounds for entertaining on a truly grand scale. From the moment you pass through the European gates, you know that you have arrived someplace very special. A private compound unfolds with a lavish main residence in the French Normandy style, a tremendous guest house, plus an ancillary complex that integrates a wine banquet room, gym, and office – all exuding Old World architectural style combined with every luxury needed for 21st century living. Connecting it all are formal gardens, foot bridges, crushed stone walking paths, and vast terraces for poolside or vineyard entertaining.
Old World artistry is apparent at every turn inside the main residence – hand-carved stone mantelpieces, custom faux-finished walls, and perfectly selected lighting. Every window and glass door is designed in the true French style with imported cremone hardware adding to the authenticity. The 5-bedroom main residence includes an office, wine cellar, dedicated media room, plus a tremendous kitchen and family room. The spacious 1-bedroom guest house doubles as a caterer’s kitchen when hosting events in the wine banquet room, which includes an additional wine cellar.
With its close-in location just over one mile to the Los Altos Village, magnificent amenities, and unique quality of life afforded in the Silicon Valley, this Chateau is indeed a world-class destination to call home.
