Custom-crafted west-side estate commands 2-parcel hillside setting


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.

This extraordinary 5,741-square-foot estate sits on two parcels and delivers four bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, a game room and a bonus room. 

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.

Hundreds of square feet of Trex deck give you a perfect perch to admire the views, dine, entertain and relax. 

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.

The eye-catching entrance features a vaulted cedar plank ceiling with soffit lighting and windows. 

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.

One of eight homes on a cul-de-sac, the property comes with views of the oak-studded landscape and Mount Diablo. 

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.
