Casa De La Colina

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 agave and succulent gardens perfectly compliment the spectacular Spanish style of this one-of-a kind home.

A dramatic, sunken living 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 formal dining room, powder room with unique stenciled wall treatment, en-suite guest room with private patio, and a library, with access to the enchanting rear yard complete with rock walls, specimen plantings, and raised-beds garden area, are also part of the main level. The home has classic Spanish breezeways, one linked to the finished garage, which has maple built-ins, sink, and double Sub-Zero refrigerators; the second is perfect for entertaining in comfort with seating and dining spaces.

The kitchen, featured in design publications, opens to a picture-perfect patio for morning coffee and evening refreshments, and features custom cabinetry, natural stone counters and flooring, La Cornue range, Thermador wall oven, drawer, and microwave, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and Bosch dishwasher. A separate eating area has built-ins for entertainment and cold and room temperature wine storage.

The upper level has three bedrooms, two en-suite with separate dressing areas (one with hallway access to the bath) and a graceful master with wood-burning fireplace and vintage surround, crown moldings, two-story closet with custom storage joined by a private stairwell, and a luxurious bath complete with Victoria & Albert soaking tub. The airy upper hallway also boasts the perfect laundry closet right out of Real Simple magazine, and an enclosed, light-filled breezeway, perfect for project room or gym, leads to the Ahwahnee-style family room with original plaster fireplace, beamed ceiling, and a deck leading to the peaceful rear yard.

Old world charm and architecture are the trademarks of this home, but with sensitive renovation and stylistic integrity, and highlighted by solid plaster and hardwood, designer vintage lighting and hardware, Waterworks fixtures and dynamic tile work, makes this home a haven of perfect esthetic and function, all right across the street from picturesque Vista Park.
