Property Description

The custom 5600 square foot contemporary home with a mid-century flair is livable but would benefit from a makeover or re-build. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The living areas are very open with huge great room/kitchen, separate living room area and massive loft. Uniquely designed with a central courtyard and soaring walls of glass looking to the far-reaching views. There are two work-shop areas and one could be used as a garage. The 40+ acre property is spectacular with open meadows, massive heritage oak trees, wooded forest and established gardens. There are breathtaking views and untapped potential in almost every part of the property. Great trail access for equestrians, bikers and hikers. Highly desirable vineyard area with Clos-de-le-Tech, Fogarty and Rhys Vineyards nearby. The location and views make a fantastic location for a stunning dream home. Zoning would allow second unit subject to San Mateo County approvals.

For lovers of the night sky, there is a 12.5 inch 1/70 wavelength Cassegrain telescope housed in a 15-foot observatory dome. Originally built and owned by Harry Leitner and located in the east bay, the observatory was moved to the property where the nights are much darker, and where it was used for a number of years.
