This brick, stone and stucco estate home showcases arched windows, lush landscaping, a foyer with mahogany wood doors, a wood-burning fireplace, plantation shutters, crown molding, granite slab counters and stainless kitchen appliances, a fabulous yard with a saltwater in-ground pool, a two-tiered outdoor kitchen and two side yards.

An impressive Tudor-style estate home filled with custom, updated finishes and features and a spectacular backyard mecca for entertaining rises to a new level of luxury and comfort in the Almaden Valley.

Located at 7242 Gold Creek Way, about a quarter-mile from the Mockingbird Hill Trailhead of Quicksilver County Park, this meticulously maintained home on approximately 16,000 square feet showcases hardwood flooring, Karastan wool carpeting, wide baseboards, crown molding, plantation shutters and dual-pane windows behind a grand double mahogany door entry. Beautiful and energy efficient, this home also features two solar systems: a Sunrun system and an Enphase Energy System that integrates a Generac generator and stores solar energy.

About 3,140 square feet of living space on two levels offers stunning formal rooms, a gourmet kitchen, a spacious family room, four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms.

Step out into the ultra-private backyard retreat that offers multiple venues defined by stone walls and decorative iron fencing with gates perfect for entertaining, play, and relaxation, including a deck with a fire pit, a stone patio, a saltwater pool with brick coping, and a spa. A two-level outdoor kitchen features a leathered granite slab counter with a stacked stone facade. Gather at the counter and enjoy viewing the flat-screen television revealed by an automated blind.

The outdoor kitchen offers everything you need to host the best party, from a built-in Fire Magic gas grill and refrigerator to a built-in stainless beverage center with custom wine glass storage, a sink, a blender, an insulated ice chest, and a bottle opener. A removable cutting board, condiment holders and plenty of storage are also featured.

A wood-burning fireplace anchors the step-down formal living room with crown molding and abundant natural light. The formal dining room has a tray ceiling. Open the French doors for a seamless flow to the outdoor kitchen and patio.

Dual-tone cabinetry and granite slab counters with a decorative tile backsplash enhance the chef’s kitchen, which also features a bay window over the stainless sink with a touchless faucet. Stainless appliances include dual Viking ovens, a Thermador dishwasher, a Miele six-burner gas cooktop and a French-door refrigerator. A pair of pendants illuminate the island, offering additional cabinetry and storage options.

The adjacent casual dining nook features automated blinds on the windows that frame backyard views and a leaded glass door with a phantom screen for backyard access.

The bedrooms are on the upper level off a carpeted landing with built-in cabinetry and recessed lighting.

The luxurious primary suite features Italian ceramic tile flooring, recessed lighting and two closets with custom built-ins. The ceramic tile flooring continues into the spa-inspired en suite that features a vaulted ceiling, custom soft-close cabinetry designed with outlets and a USB charger, and pullout drawers with custom organizers. A dual vessel-sink vanity has a Caesarstone slab counter with a decorative tile backsplash. Automated blinds provide privacy while basking in the free-standing bathtub with a wall-mounted faucet and enjoying the oversize walk-in shower with dual faucets and multiple storage niches.

Three additional bedrooms feature plush Karastan carpet, crown molding and closets with Valet custom organizers. One bedroom has a built-in queen Murphy bed and a sliding glass door that opens onto a private balcony. These rooms share a full bathroom with tile flooring, crown molding, a dual-sink vanity with Corian counter and backsplash, and a tub/shower combination.

A multizone Rachio sprinkler system irrigates the illuminated landscaping that includes lush foliage, shade and towering redwoods, raised garden beds, and a variety of fruit trees.

Additional features include a three-car garage with a wall of built-in cabinetry and overhead storage, dual HVAC with IQAir filtration and UV light, a two-year-young roof, an Ecobee Smart thermostat, and a Navien tankless water heater.
