Step Back in Time at This Charming Hillsborough Estate

Prepare yourself - because what we present to you today is a truly outstanding piece of property, like something straight out of a fairy tale.

This two-acre estate in lower Hillsborough is truly one-of-a-kind

Made up of the main house, a large guesthouse, a detached ballroom, wine cellar, vast level lawn area, a beautiful pool, fruit orchard, rose garden, vegetable garden, and so much more.

This property evokes nostalgia of yesteryear, of the good old days of stately homes like this one...

The grounds

The enchanting grounds of this magnificent residence are a huge draw. From the majestic trees, unique shrubbery, and sweeping lawn to the fruit orchard, rose garden, and vegetable gardens - these are no ordinary grounds.

Space to splash

The luxurious turquoise pool and surrounding lounge areas are reminiscent of the pools of Europe's grandest homes and estates, perfect for cooling down in the California heat or entertaining when the grounds are in full bloom. Just imagine the extravagant parties you could throw here...

Speaking of entertaining...

Did we mention the ballroom? That's right, the estate has its very own detached ballroom with soaring cathedral ceiling, grand fireplace, dining room, kitchen, and full bath. A space good enough for Jay Gatsby himself.

The main house

At 4,500 square feet, the charming main residence is as spacious as could be. Upon entering, you'll find a welcoming salon with regal fireplace, redwood-paneled walls, a wet bar, and amazing views of the verdant grounds. Not to mention the sun-filled chef's kitchen, grand formal dining room, a cozy family room, remodeled master suite with spectacular sitting room, fireplace, and marble bath with heated floors.

Guest quarters

This estate also features a guest house with separate driveway which is perfect for hosting friends, family, or even for renting out.

A wine haven

If you consider yourself quite the oenophile, fear not, this property also comes with its own wine cellar in the full basement to store your precious vintages in. Cheers!

With an estate of this magnitude, you'd never need to leave.
