Purissima Modern Residence
Location: Los Altos Hills, CA
This home is a masterful expression of contemporary design inspired by mid-century modern aesthetic. Throughout the one-level home, travertine floors unify every room, select ceilings are paneled in African mahogany, and ledger stone defines entire walls with integrated fireplaces indoors and out. Glass walls disappear entirely in many rooms with no intersecting impediment, creating a truly seamless connection to the grounds and the outdoor living space.
The home includes a temperature-controlled wine cellar accessible from the kitchen and great room. A cluster of 5 Santa & Cole drum lights hang from the ceiling, and sliding glass doors stack to either side of the great room opening onto the loggia. The family room is open to the kitchen with two walls of disappearing sliding glass doors with no impediment from a center support. At the center of it all is a masterful kitchen with imported French cabinetry, including two islands, each with waterfall-wrapped in extra-thick Calacatta Borghini marble.
The master bedroom suite has an accent mahogany wall with integrated pendant lights, a gas fireplace with cantilevered travertine hearth in a wall of ledger stone, and fully retractable glass doors on two walls with no center impediment. The track-hung doors conceal the fully customized walk-in closet, a coffee bar with a Fisher & Paykel refrigerator, an en suite bath that includes a free-standing tub, curbless shower, dual vessel sinks, and automated Toto commode. The three spacious bedroom suites each have en suite baths with curbless showers and one bathroom also provides a dual entry to the hallway.
The 2 plus acre lot includes an infinity waterfall pool, fountains, spa, vast covered and open terraces and a barbecue center.
