Where: 1599 Hillgrade Avenue, Alamo, CA 94507 (listing)

Set atop 2.1 acres and built in the early 1900s, this home has been impeccably maintained and undergone a beautiful restoration.

These features include hewn log posts, rock walls, stone and hardwood flooring, and other artisan-crafted accents. Though rich with history, this home has been smartly transformed with state-of-the-art art amenities such as the sound system wired throughout the home and exceptional security system.

The “log cabin” living room, as it’s been called, is the warm and inviting heart of the home, offering a 12-foot wood-burning stone hearth fireplace for friends and family to gather around. The kitchen offers an ample space and is the perfect place for chefs to entertain guests, who will also approve of the impressive wine and tasting room.

A major bonus to this home is its layout, which includes private spaces and public areas perfect for social gatherings. The four en-suite bedrooms each open to their own balcony or patio and serve as their own personal getaway. With views spanning across Mt. Diablo to the Delta, an abundance of amenities, its convenient location near Alamo and Walnut Creek and its historic background, this resort-like estate is a standout in Contra Costa County.
