Exclusive, Secluded Architectural Beauty Designed by Robert Overstreet
With a coveted perch overlooking the bay, this exceptional hillside residence is decades in the making, now on the market for the first time in a quarter of a century. Renowned architect Robert Overstreet of Botsai and Overstreet spent 10 years realizing his vision here at his own personal home—a 4,000 square-foot beauty with an additional 900 sq. ft. guest house on 1.3 acres of lush, forest-like grounds.
The current owners purchased the home from Overstreet 21 years ago, and spent the last three years on meticulous updates that honor Overstreet’s original vision while keeping in step with lifestyle trends. Upgrades include custom kitchens and baths and entirely restored wood exteriors for both the four-bedroom main house and one-bedroom guest house.
The thoughtfully designed entrance and private driveway keeps the property hidden from the street and leads to ample off-street parking and a renovated two-car garage. Custom stained glass on the formal entry door depicts the home’s distinctive floor plan.
A full wall of bay views, original redwood paneling, and boxed ceiling light wells anchor the living room. Gather with guests in the intimate conversation area, which is warmed by an 82-inch fireplace. Note the railroad ties that form the hood of the fireplace; Overstreet discovered these at an Oakland railroad yard and expertly incorporated them into the home design. Similar ties also feature in the guest house.
Kitchen & Dining
Handcrafted doors in the living area open to a multi-faceted dining room with an Overstreet-designed dining table at its center, which can be adjusted from a standard dining table to a lower, Japanese-style height. Feasts at this table will feature sweeping valley views, and a deck just off this space adds more room for entertaining.
The crown jewel of the kitchen is the custom, vertical grain fir veneer cabinetry by Julian Giuntoli Custom Furniture in San Francisco. The space also features black granite counters, deluxe built-in appliances and one-of-a-kind marble backsplash.
Adjacent, a sizable covered gazebo deck acts an extension of the home, with views of the garden and Koi pond.
Bedrooms, Bathrooms & Bonus Rooms
Find two generous master suites on the lower level. Both include a platform bed, a private deck, a sitting area, two walls of closets and newly remodeled baths. Each bathroom has a new rift-cut oak veneer vanity by Julian Giuntoli Custom Furniture, marble mosaic tile and textured marble floors, which are heated.
At the mid-level, two lofted bonus rooms—well-suited for both home offices or guest rooms—feature views, an updated full bath, and a serene, covered viewing terrace.
Custom design continues in the separate one-bedroom, one-bath guest house, including a fireplace finished with railroad tie plates that mirror those in the main house. In the guest house kitchen, find new appliances, counters, and custom cabinetry by Julian Giuntoli.
Equally upgraded, the bath is finished with a new vanity and sinks, plus all-new electrical and plumbing. Tucked into the lower level for privacy, the guest house bedroom features ample closet space and a laundry closet. This guest house is a legal rental and can present an additional income opportunity.
Carefully chosen native plantings in the garden create a seamless, tucked-into-nature feeling inside the home.
Outdoor areas are designed to provide maximum benefit for minimal upkeep: landscaping is upgraded with a new irrigation system, and retrofitted LED fixtures illuminate the garden, driveway and entry walkway. A well-stocked Koi pond is self-maintained, with a new automatic feeder and a pond filtration and aeration system.
The property has been recognized in numerous national and international publications.
