Picture a European-inspired resort richly appointed with fine interior finishes.
Lush gardens with fountains wrap around a black bottom saltwater lap pool.
Rows of Merlot grape vines flow down a gentle hillside. Majestic oaks, including a more than 300-year-old specimen, spread their expansive canopies over quiet retreat spaces.
Inviting outdoor entertaining venues enjoy spectacular panoramic views.
Imagine having all this in Danville’s exclusive El Pintado neighborhood, where a custom redesigned and remodeled gated estate features mostly single-level living on a 1.12-acre piece of land.
This home is custom designed by architect David Kotzebue, who is known for his one-of-a-kind Bay Area homes.
Located at 564 El Pintado, the existing ranch-style home was transformed in 2015 into this amazing Mediterranean villa with a contemporary flair and a destination for family and friends to literally visit for a retreat experience.
Custom-designed by architect David Kotzebue, known for his designs of one-of-a-kind Bay Area homes, and inspired by the owners’ frequent travels to the South of France and Tuscany, the 5,648 square feet of living space includes a main home, detached guesthouse, and wine tasting cellar. A warm palette of hues, from the Italian stucco facade and red tile roof to the travertine flooring, is featured throughout in addition to custom molding and woodwork and natural stone tile.
A combination of clear Flemish glass and ornamental ironwork create a stunning front entry door into a spacious foyer that features a soaring 16-foot ceiling and an enticing peek at the back gardens through French doors.
A formal dining room features a barrel vaulted ceiling and imported Italian light fixture. The adjacent formal living room retained its original fireplace with marble surround and has a vaulted ceiling, wall of view windows with plantation shutters, and access to the loggia and outdoor kitchen.
The home’s sleek gourmet kitchen is accentuated with quartz counters, a Calacatta marble subway tile backsplash, crisp white custom cabinetry, stainless sink and large breakfast bar.
