Exalted Bay-View Villa
13541 Campus Drive
13541 Campus Drive
The optimal vantage point for panoramas of the Bay and beyond, this modern Mediterranean envelops a fireplace-clad courtyard and is surrounded by level gardens, an expansive terrace and covered loggia. Outdoor-living areas, plus open-concept indoor spaces and primary suite, luxuriate in widespread outlooks of the Bay and Bay Area cityscapes. A sprawling single-story layout features four en-suite bedrooms, including the plush primary suite, soaring-ceilinged living room open to grand gathering-place kitchen, adjacent dining and family rooms, all distinguished by luxe finishes and appointments.
Perfectly poised in Caballo Hills, the circa-2016 home nests among equally impeccable homes along the manicured hillscape. Within the neighborhood, Leona Canyon Regional Open Space presents a stunning natural attraction. The neighborhood’s tranquility, free of traffic noise and full of protected parkland, evokes a getaway, yet it lies conveniently within two miles of highway access.
Mediterranean hallmarks combine on the home’s the façade: terra-cotta roof tile, arches, graceful wrought-iron window grilles, medallions, fencing and gates. A wood-paneled door gives way to the paver-stone courtyard, a private lounge with focal-point gas fireplace. It forms an inviting approach to the airy interior, where ceilings range from extra high to even higher, arrays of picture windows frame unobstructed views, and clerestory windows deliver additional radiance. Another fireplace anchors the living room and is flanked by inset library shelves. Wide-plank hardwood flooring in rich gray reflects artisan hand finishing. Step level out to the loggia and terrace from openings in both living and dining rooms. A centerpiece between them, the kitchen showcases an epic island accommodating a crowd; quartz counters meet tile-mosaic backsplashes, and professional-caliber appliances by Thermador include a six-burner-plus-grill cooktop. A walk-in extends a profusion of pantry space, and a dedicated beverage bar integrates a wine refrigerator.
Furnishing the bedroom hallway, a built-in chiffonier offers elegant storage and display. Bedrooms contain spacious, well- configured closets; their attached bathrooms, plus the powder room, intermix tiles schemes in shades of gray with metallic accents. In the opulent primary-suite bathroom, a gas fireplace sparks resort ambiance. Nestled between separate vanities, a rectilinear soaking tub augments the double shower, and concealed spaces include a pair of walk-in closets and water closet.
A well-placed bedroom-area laundry room and attached garages for three cars exemplify the home’s elaborate storage and utility.
