Situated on a small knoll in the prestigious Los Altos Country Club neighborhood, the home at 1557 Plateau Drive features many of the most highly regarded elements which make a house a luxury property and a joy to see.
The Los Altos Country Club Neighborhood
The Country Club area of Los Altos is highly sought after for many reasons, including its scenic green views, proximity to the Los Altos Golf and Country Club, gently rolling hills, a semi-rural, quiet, understated and private ambiance, easy access to major roads and highway 280 – and, of course, fabulous Los Altos schools. Additionally, some locations enjoy fabulous views of the golf course or the bay, too.
Several years ago I had the pleasure of selling an estate home on Hillview Avenue, which is just a stone’s throw from the lovely house for sale on Plateau in the Country Club neighborhood. I got to know the area and came to appreciate why it has such a strong and enduring appeal to Silicon Valley home buyers. It’s not a region with a high turnover – instead, people move there and stay put. The area is hard to beat!
Younger, Elegant Mediterranean View Home
The Country Club area was first developed decades ago, so many of the houses in this area are fairly old (mid century and later ranch style houses are not uncommon). Slowly, homes are being either extensively remodeled or rebuilt and a few are less than 20 years old.
The property at 1557 Plateau Avenue is younger, just 18 years old, constructed by a builder who was making it for himself and his family. As you might imagine, the owner-builder utilized the land to make best use of the view opportunity. He also created it with many extra features & finishing touches which distinguish a quality, custom home from tract housing.
What about the views? This Mediterranean style house enjoys panoramic views of the peninsula and eastern foothills. On a clear day, you can see the bay and the bridge too!
The floorplan is flexible. There is a 2 car garage at street level, but a third which is accessed from the rear of the property – ideal for RVs, boats, and extra cars or vehicles. The 3rd garage can be used as built, or as a rec room, extra storage, or a number of other options.
