Alamo, CA – May 4, 2023

A magnificent Mediterranean gated villa on almost eight fully fenced acres bordering Mt. Diablo State Park offers an elevated level of architectural detailing and desired luxury reserved for those seeking an exceptional East Bay residence in the Round Hill Country Club.

Custom curated from the ground up, exceeding engineering, building, and design standards is almost 9,000 square feet of living space, including the eight-bedroom main home, an all-new detached 1,100 square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bathroom ADU with amazing views from wall-to-wall windows, and a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest/pool house. Resort-worthy outdoor entertaining venues from a gorgeous pool, spa, fire pit, lighted tennis court, and outdoor kitchen to patios, verandas, and a 1,000-square-foot deck offer room to entertain at every level.

Sensitive to the lands natural topography that offers a blend of three level building sites, a creek, and gentle slopes that reach the edge of the parkland, the villas design retained its almost three dozen 200-300-year-old oak trees that create verdant backdrops or natural canopies for the outdoor venues. About 50 trees were added to the dramatic landscape, including four mature Canary palm trees.
The only home in the 188-home Round Hill Country Club neighborhood with private hiking and equestrian access to Mt. Diablo State Park, it is also only one of three zoned for horses.
Driving over a Contech custom-designed, built, and fortified double-wide bridge gives you the first glimpse of this home’s grandeur behind a multi-tiered Cantera Stone fountain handcrafted in Mexico.
Behind the double copper-clad front door with a wide transom is an elegant foyer featuring a dramatic 35-foot domed ceiling with uplighting. The two-level home showcases hand-troweled plaster walls, soaring coffered and curved ceilings, Italian marble tile flooring with decorative inlays, walls of windows framing garden and hillside views, custom cabinetry, crown molding, gallery lighting, hand-forged iron stair railings, handcrafted chandeliers and light fixtures imported from Mexico, arched entries, plush carpeting, two staircases, and Andersen windows and doors.

A stunning formal living room with a fireplace and front-facing bay window and a dining room that can easily accommodate a table for 14 flank the dramatic entry and are conveniently close to a 1,000+ bottle wine cellar. Step into a gourmet kitchen appointed with granite counters, an oversized island/breakfast bar, custom cabinetry, a walk-in pantry, dual Miele ovens, a six-burner Thermador cooktop with a grill, dishwasher, and a SubZero refrigerator. An expansive casual dining rotunda has backyard views from the walls of windows. A fireplace and built-in custom media cabinetry anchor the large family room that also features a soaring ceiling and a second kitchen outfitted with granite counters, custom cabinetry, an icemaker, dishwasher, cooktop, microwave, and a Miele coffee station.
Two sets of French doors open to create a seamless flow to the romantic and large veranda where ivy gracefully climbs the walls. Steps connect this venue to the pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, patios, and Trex deck.

The eight bedrooms, six bathrooms, and two half baths in the main home include a main-level bedroom/office with an en suite. Two more main-level bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom and a kitchenette and also feature a private entry making it ideal for guests, multi-generational living, or an au pair.

Also on the main level is a sizeable game room with hardwood flooring, a custom-designed home theater featuring a half-dozen reclining chairs, blackout curtains, speakers, and a 15-foot movie screen. Sliding glass doors open to another outdoor venue.

The primary suite on the upper level is a luxurious suite with a coffered ceiling, French doors to a private balcony, and a dual-sided gas fireplace it shares with the en suite. A jacuzzi bathtub, a steam shower with multiple showerheads and body jets, a dual sink vanity, and a walk-in closet with an operable skylight completes the en suite. A bedroom suite and two bedrooms that share a Jack and Jill bathroom, each with French doors that open to balconies and a large office/home gym behind a glass French door entry, complete this level.

The ultra-private location is also about two miles from the Round Hill Country Club clubhouse, less than four miles to the Alamo Plaza and Highway 680, and within two and a half miles of top-rated schools in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District. Also adjacent to the renowned Summit Ranch.
