Casa de la Colina 

House on the Hill

Across the road from the only park in Hillsborough, Casa de la Colina offers the perfect blend of hallmark architecture, quality renovation, and artistic ambiance. As one enters the property, the exquisite landscaping is striking. Old vine olive trees–saved from a former orchard–a majestic palm, and mature fruit trees throughout the property perfectly complement the level backyard and spectacular Spanish style of this one-of-a-kind home.

A dramatic, sunken living-dining room, with twelve-foot ceilings, original plaster fireplace, and double French doors leading to an intimate retreat with Zen water feature make for a gracious indoor-outdoor experience. The kitchen, featured in design publications, opens to a picture-perfect patio for morning coffee and evening refreshments, with custom cabinetry, natural stone counters and flooring, La Cornue range, Thermador wall oven, warming drawer and microwave, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and Bosch dishwasher. A separate eating area has built-ins for entertainment and pathway to walk-in wine cellar.

The mudroom, powder room, and guest room with en suite bathroom, private patio and entry, and home office with access to the enchanting level rear yard complete with rock walls, raised garden bed area, and expansive lawn are also part of the main level. The home has classic Spanish breezeways: one linked to the finished garage with maple built-ins, sink, and side-by-side, full-size Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer; the second breezeway is perfect for entertaining in comfort with seating and dining spaces.

The upper level has four bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, including the primary suite with wood-burning fireplace, vintage wainscoting and crown moldings, two-story closet with custom storage joined by a private stairwell, and luxurious bath complete with Kohler jetted tub. The airy upper hallway boasts the perfect laundry closet with upgraded washer/dryer and an enclosed, light-filled passageway, perfect as a music or play room, home gym, or home office, leading to the bright and thoughtfully renovated bedroom with en suite bathroom, original plaster fireplace, beamed and paneled ceiling, and exterior French doors leading to a deck and peaceful enclosed yard.
