Imagine an estate with a central location close to everything California has to offer, and more. Take a favorite car from your collection on a trip along the golden coast to Pebble Beach to play 18 holes on the course of champions, or simply drive 40 minutes to San Francisco to get in a quick round at the Olympic Club. Charter a flight from one of 3 nearby international airports – San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland – for a business meeting in Los Angeles, or a weekend ski trip to Lake Tahoe or Vail. Or take a getaway to Napa for fabulous wine tastings and an unforgettable culinary experience at the world-renowned French Laundry.
Welcome to 27500 La Vida Real, Silicon Valley’s ultimate estate listed at $39,998,000. Just a stone’s throw from the area’s top tech companies and VCs of Sand Hill Road, this incredible property rests on over 8 acres enveloped by lush, verdant landscapes synonymous with Los Altos Hills, creating an overwhelming sense of privacy that belies its ultra-convenient location.
A magnificent arched beamed portico introduces the estate, and inside, the foyer presents a sense of the grandeur yet to come, as the home is brimming with luxurious appointments such as laser- and water-jet-carved marble lattices, true divided light windows with casements and curving muntins by Roeder, exotic wood and stone finishes, undulating ceilings, and more.
Nearly 21,000 square feet of living space is scaled for entertaining yet intimate enough for everyday living, with rooms that echo the custom design touches found throughout. Highlights include a gourmet kitchen with every conceivable amenity for the home chef, oversized public rooms, an office, and billiards room, while a 15-seat theater rivals the comforts of any fine cinema, and a 3,000-bottle wine cellar with room for tastings awaits your personal collection.
Find comfort and privacy in 5 sumptuous bedrooms, the crown jewel of which being the primary suite with a fireplace, access to 2 loggias, and an opulent bathroom with a sunken, jetted tub and a shower so immense it has 2 frameless entries. Through the adjoining gym is an expansive recreation room with an infinity-edge spa and indoor pool with a swim-up bar, set beneath a roof with multiple retractable skylights so you can swim beneath the stars.
The self-contained cabana may be used as living quarters, though it perfectly transforms into a staging area for catered events with ample space and a kitchen equipped with professional appliances including dual ovens, a beer tap, tandoori oven, and an ice maker, with folding doors that open completely to the vast gathering spaces scattered amongst the grounds.
For the work-from-home executive, the separate office is perfectly suited to meet all of your business needs. A reception area greets any client or visitor, and the structure includes multiple workstation spaces, space for office automation, a kitchenette, and a restroom, while a conference room stands ready to accommodate meetings.
The lavish grounds enjoy thoughtfully designed gathering areas and promote a true California indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Designed with a grand scheme of blooming abundance throughout the landscape, the grounds have been meticulously groomed with intimate details in mine. For example, near the primary suite resides a number of Champak evergreens, with fragrant flowers that naturally aromatize the bedroom and its outdoor spaces. From the delightful vineyard, to the resort-styled gathering spaces, and everything in between, the grounds exude prestige and grace.
La Vida Real also enjoys a number of additional features including eco-friendly, geo-thermal temperature stabilization supported by 29 water wells, plus radiant heating, a mechanical room, video panel controls, an existing 6-car garage that may be converted into double the storage, and 2 standby generators to ensure constant power.
All of this, and a location mere moments to world-class shopping and dining in Los Altos, Palo Alto, and Menlo Park, as well as access to top-ranked public and private schools. 27500 La Vida Real is truly an opportunity not to be missed. The ultimate Silicon Valley lifestyle awaits – welcome home.
