Alamo, a peaceful suburb tucked away in the rolling green hills of Contra Costa County, offers East Bay dwellers sprawling lots, quiet tree-lined streets, expansive parks and recreation, and fine dining and shopping. The close-knit community also boasts secluded neighborhoods offering incredible views of Mount Diablo.
Enter this private, approximately 6,500-square-foot custom home represented by Clark and Anne Johnson of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Danville. Situated in the exclusive Alamo Springs residential community, this stunning two-story “mid-century modern meets contemporary” residence is nothing short of a visual masterpiece.
Featured as a prime example of advanced home technology by Sunset in 2006, the property has recently undergone a complete remodel. Designed by Habitude Home and built by Black Mountain Construction & Development, the home now has an updated, elegant look and feel to go with its tech savvy features. From its well thought-out floor plan and luxurious amenities to its prestigious hilltop location that provides breathtaking views overlooking the community, this home offers luxury living and entertaining at its finest.
Upon entry, guests and residents are immediately welcomed by an open floor plan leading into the Napa room, reminiscent of the finest Napa Valley winery tasting rooms. The room was finished with distinctive details throughout, including wide-plank white oak flooring, white quartz ledge stone, and a unique modern brass Sputnik style chandelier. Additional warm lighting throughout the room creates a welcoming environment for socializing.
The entertainment potential of the Napa room is further highlighted by its vintage view wine racking system, which provides storage for over 200 bottles. A piece of art in itself, the wine room features custom floating walnut panels back lit with energy efficient LED lighting. Custom glass panels offer a full view of the wine collection. The Wine Guardian refrigeration system maintains fully insulated walls, keeping the wine at a constant temperature.
The open and airy chef’s kitchen is the stuff “foodies” dream of with two large islands, state of the art stainless steel appliances including a double restaurant-quality refrigerator, warming drawers, a butler’s pantry and a gooseneck faucet.
The adjoining custom-designed great room entices guests to gather and relax. This room is defined by an eye-catching Ortal lineal fireplace surrounded by vein-cut and leathered silver limestone mantel and hearth. The bespoke walnut panel wall adds dramatic synergy with the tongue and groove vertical grain fir ceiling. Additional designer touches include custom niches that mimic the wall and fireplace with limestone ledges and walnut backs.
Oh, and did we mention the views? The great room’s large sliding glass doors open up to an expansive backyard that’s designed for the ultimate resort style living with tremendous entertainment potential—thanks to the home’s luxurious pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, a fireplace and fire pit with ample spots for socializing, large basketball court and a separate guest space that includes a kitchenette and bathroom—and could be used for a variety of purposes, including a guest room or office.
Traverse to the home’s upper level to find the newly remodeled master bathroom spa, which features custom built marble, a freestanding shower wall and tub deck, marble sink vanities, and an Artemide chandelier and sconces to add sparkle throughout.
It’s the details that make the difference in the master suite. Inside you will find a luxurious and intimate space with delicate touches throughout including a chandelier, pendant lighting, custom niches and views opening up to Mount Diablo. The floor to ceiling custom built-in cabinetry provides ample storage, adding functionality to the striking visual elegance.
The home’s entertainment possibilities are endless and cater to both adults and children with an expansive downstairs gaming room area complete with a pool table and custom lighting as well as a separate theater room for movie viewing.
Priced at $4,495,000, this exquisite five bedroom and five and a half bathroom home offers discriminating buyers the chance to belong to an exclusive community and own a tailor-made home that provides privacy.
