Casa Sola

Exquisite Quality

Casa Sola, located in the premier estate area of Hillsborough, is a magnificent Spanish inspiration. Although only eight years old, gracious ambiance and masterful craftsmanship create a sense of stately old world style.

The grand entry with powder room opens to a perfectly sized formal dining room and the airy living room with European style, rounded plaster corner fireplace, and a short passage to the kitchen-great room. Through arched double doors from the living room, the wood-paneled study, also with a fireplace, is a private, yet professional retreat with its own intimate inviting patio. Consummate quality is immediately apparent in the solid plaster walls, high ceilings, phenomenal use of tile, both decorative and functional, and hand-forged ironwork, including chandeliers, sconces, and stair railings.

The kitchen-great room is proportioned for large-scale entertaining but comfortable for family gatherings with built-in table seating, bar seating at the magnificent granite-topped island with prep sink, and space for cozy couches and television. A substantial stone fireplace anchors the space and lends balance to the cooking area with Wolf range, built-in SubZero refrigerator and Bosch dishwasher. Impressive solid wood cabinetry, soaring ceiling, and an intimate wet-bar illustrate the pervasive excellence in Casa Sola. The distinction of custom tile from Malibu Ceramic Works can’t be understated; every staircase is a work of art, and the design and color scheme for each is unique.

Off the kitchen: a complete suite with library-sitting room featuring built-in desk and shelving, bedroom with multiple closets, and an en-suite bath. Also off the kitchen is an additional room, currently a home gym, which could also serve as a second study or a bedroom. This room, as well as the great room, and living and dining rooms all open to the huge rear patio that feels like the ultimate resort with several seating areas, a built-in barbeque, and multiple stone terraces highlighted by mature specimen plantings, including palm and citrus. The rear yard is perfect for any combination of pool, sport court, bocce, vineyard, or casita development.

The second-floor master wing, with its own beautiful stair from the living room, has an over-sized walk-in closet with numerous built-ins, large bath with double vanity areas, jetted tub, and separate shower and lavatory. Every window and a private sundeck with tiled stair to the main patio have lovely views of the rear gardens and patio.

The family bedroom wing has two en-suites accessed by a stair from the great room. Both bedrooms have bucolic views, large closets, and bathrooms with rich, yet understated, tile and fixtures. A rear hall off the great room leads to another en-suite bedroom and a utility room with laundry, large kitchenette, and a built-in desk area: perfect for au pair or staff. Also from the rear hall is a stair to the lower level, with immaculate garage, large shop area, utilities, wine cave, storage, and access to the valet-sized motor court and front yard with double gates and pull-through drive.

The showcase of Spanish warmth and essence, spacious floor plan, cutting-edge technology and security, and impeccable design choices create a home that represents the epitome of integrity, luxury, and style. Casa Sola is the ultimate statement of quality and taste.
