New construction designed to maximize the natural light makes a dazzling debut on a spectacular west-side Alamo property.
This new home blends mountain cabin design and stonework within towering redwoods to create the perfect ambience.
An exceptional piece of real estate, designed by Harvard-educated architect Michael Gale, features a Tahoe mountain cabin facade with shake siding accented with beautiful stonework. It fits perfectly amidst the groves of towering redwoods that wrap around the completely level 1.24 acres of land at 26 N. Jackson Way.

There is about 3,600 square feet in the main house with five bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms, and about 700 square feet in the detached guesthouse that has an additional bedroom, full bathroom, kitchen and living room.
