My Notes

The reason behind the name "The Castle of Alhambra Valley" becomes evident as soon as you arrive at the gates. The long cobblestone driveway meets the main house, where high reaching towers, spires and windows supported unto the outer wall harken back to the medieval castles of Europe. A cottage perched atop the hill exudes charm and an old world simplicity. Immediately drawn in to this world, you long to ascend the grand slate staircase. This house is, in itself, a true work of art. This is perceptible as soon as you enter the foyer, where great beams support the ceiling and custom hand-made wrought iron lines the stairway.The Mosaic Santos Mahogany flooring was done by the designers of the flooring in the De Young Museum in San Francisco. Custom African Mahogany pocket doors with antique brass Windsor Pattern Lock leads you through to the kitchen. Family room with free standing, wood burning stove fireplace and rare dual chandeliers imported from a 19th century coastal estate, with windows displaying breathtaking views of Briones Reserve. The custom chef's kitchen truly transports you to another time. High cathedral ceilings, abundant windows and beautiful chandeliers. Terra Cotta floors play up to the elegance of the custom wood cabinetry, while floating island porvides flexibilty while cooking and entertaining. The large dining room boasts private balcony, and can easily seat twenty. A library and a study, both with built-in custom desks and shelving. A total of five bedrooms, there are two master suites, the primary on the main floor, the secondary on an upper level. Three brand new bathrooms, the guest bath boasts heated floors and flat screen TV. Small pool and a new sauna which accomodates four adults. A separate, fully equipped cottage is perfect for in-laws or to rent out. Wine cellar, game room, and an additional upper loft with endless options for conversion.
