From the moment you first arrive at this spectacular custom home in the Crane Ridge vineyards of the South Livermore Valley, you know you are somewhere special. Step through the majestic front entrance and you are immediately transported to an exquisite Tuscan farmhouse that is as gorgeous as it is warm, inviting and rustic. Every window in this one-of-a-kind estate offers an astonishingly beautiful panoramic view of the magnificent vineyards and surrounding Livermore Valley hills all the way north to Mt. Diablo.
The sweeping great room is supported by beautiful Italian cypress tree columns and an old growth redwood roof reclaimed from a winery torn down in Sonoma. The designer kitchen features handcrafted cabinets from Provence, marble countertops from Italy’s Amalfi Coast, and a solid marble Farmhouse sink. The first floor also features an executive-style office, spacious wine cellar and two bedrooms each with a private bathroom.
Upstairs, there are four well-appointed bedrooms, including a master suite that boasts a dramatic barrel vault ceiling, a private retreat with dramatic views of the vineyards, gas fireplace with insert and stone hearth, and an elegant master bathroom featuring Noce Travertine imported from Italy, oversized spa tub, a large stall shower with double shower heads.
An in-law apartment has a separate entrance off the kitchen as well as to outside. Vacation at home in the entertainer’s backyard, set against a backdrop of vineyards, and beautifully landscaped with in-ground pebble-tech, saltwater pool with beach entry, waterfall, spa and outdoor gas fireplace.
Located in one of the premier wine growing districts in the state, the property boasts 14.2 acres of vineyards planted with Chardonnay, Petite Syrah, and Zinfandel varieties, which are estate bottled and vineyard designated.
This stunning, exclusive estate property is truly country living at its best. One of only seven homes in the private, gated community of Crane Ridge, originally developed and planted by Wente Brothers, the largest vineyard in the historic Livermore Valley. Perfectly located, it’s just minutes to Livermore’s charming downtown, close to major highways and transit, and less than an hour to San Francisco or Silicon Valley.
