Rare is the opportunity to live in Hillsborough, one of the most expensive cities in the nation. Rarer still is the opportunity to live in Country Club Manor, a premier neighborhood in North Hillsborough where homes are not often offered for sale. Rarest of all is the opportunity to own a home in this coveted city and neighborhood that so ideally joins together an enviable modern perspective with distinct Italian styling.

One of Hillsborough’s preeminent estate properties, 2255 Skyfarm Drive  is a contemporary Italian villa flush with Mediterranean details including beautiful tile work, millwork, wrought iron detailing, and materials including limestone floors. Five bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two partials are offered in 9,800 square feet of living space.

Large public spaces include a huge dining room suitable for grand soirees and an enormous downstairs entertainment room equipped for incredible parties. The stunning kitchen presents wood beams, Moorish tile, professional stainless steel appliances, and a butler’s pantry, the master bath is a vision of marble, and a library with mahogany inlaid wood ceiling continues the Italian opulence. Also offered is a 500-bottle wine cellar.

Extensive outdoor space on the 1.1-acre lot encompasses a wide grassy lawn, expansive patios, an outdoor kitchen, a lap pool and spa, a well-equipped poolhouse, reflective ponds, and a romantic vine-shaded hideaway

2255 Skyfarm Drive is offered for $10,700,000 by Denise Laugesen of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
