This custom west-side Danville estate blends in with its natural hillside terrain, but its exceptional architecture and design create a prominent presence that will not go unnoticed.
Inspired by the oak-studded landscape and unobstructed views of Mount Diablo, the two-level home featuring about 5,741 square feet of living space was designed and crafted with cedar wood siding and stone.
One of eight homes on the cul-de-sac, 13 Hilferd Way majestically sits on two parcels and more than 4.5 acres adjacent to the Las Trampas Ridge. Horse enthusiasts can consider adding a barn and paddocks or a guesthouse, an ADU, pool, spa, and more on the sprawling property.
Soaring cedar plank ceilings, dramatic soffit lighting, walls of windows, hardwood floors, an elevator, Kolbe & Kolbe dual-pane wood windows, and a contemporary palette of interior paint create a fresh, light-drenched interior that connects to fabulous outdoor spaces every chance it gets.
Hundreds of square feet of Trex deck on two levels create outdoor rooms to dine, entertain or just sit back and enjoy the view. Expansive lawn and gardens enhance an alfresco lifestyle.
Formal living and dining rooms, a family room, a chef’s kitchen, and an adjoining casual dining nook are all large venues that flow together in the perfectly shaped floor plan. There are five bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms.
Also on the main level are the fabulous office/study and the primary suite.
On the lower level, with access to outdoor view decks and gardens, is an expansive game room, a bonus room, four bedrooms, and two bathrooms. Additional features include a garage that can accommodate up to five cars. It also has access to a full bathroom and the elevator.
Captivating views grab your attention as soon as you walk through the beveled glass front door with a matching transom. The vaulted cedar plank ceiling with soffit lighting in the entry creates a grand entrance befitting this impressive home.
A formal living room has a gas fireplace and one of many French doors that open to the deck. The formal dining room has a front-facing hillside view, built-in cabinetry with glass-faced doors and a nearby butler’s pantry.
An enormous island/breakfast bar with seating for at least eight takes center stage in the chef’s kitchen appointed with granite counters, cherry wood cabinetry with pullout shelves, upper glass-faced cabinets, Dacor dual ovens, a five-burner gas cooktop, a Bosch dishwasher and a KitchenAid refrigerator. The adjacent casual dining area is generous in size and connects to the outdoor deck via French doors.
Step down into the family room with a fireplace with a stone floor-to-vaulted-ceiling surround, built-in cabinetry and another French door to the deck.
A gas fireplace and built-in cabinetry anchor the spacious office on the main level. This room also has a vaulted ceiling with soffit lighting, a private entry from the front porch, a built-in workstation and wet bar, and a private deck overlooking the hillside.
The two-room primary suite behind a double-door entry is also on the main level. The sitting room has a wall of built-in cabinetry, a view window and a dual-sided fireplace with a marble surround that it shares with the bedroom.
The bedroom also has a vaulted ceiling, spectacular views and two walk-in closets with custom built-ins. The en suite bathroom features honed marble finishes, has two separate vanities, an oversize jetted tub and a large steam shower.
Take the wide staircase or the elevator to the lower level that is also drenched in natural light. A game room can easily accommodate a pool table and more and is near the walk-around wet bar appointed with a sink, dishwasher, and refrigerator.
Step down into the bonus room, a perfect room to gather with friends, watch a movie or host a game night. Throw open the French doors and extend this entertaining space out onto the expansive deck.
Also on the lower level are four bedrooms, each very generous in size and each with sliding mirrored closet doors. Two bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom with a dual-sink vanity, a shower, and access to the outdoor deck. Two bedrooms share a full bathroom with a double-sink vanity and a tub/shower combination. Front and back driveway entrances offer plenty of off-street parking and easy access.
This ultra-private estate is also less than 2 miles to Danville’s charming downtown, shops, cafes, restaurants, the farmers market and the Iron Horse Trail. Enjoy the proximity to top-rated San Ramon Valley Unified School District schools, including about a mile to Montair Elementary and San Ramon Valley High School and about 2.5 miles to Stone Valley Middle School.
