$5,598,000 for a Silicon Valley Estate



    Situated right in the heart of Silicon Valley, this contemporary estate has a feel for the future with its clean, modern, single-level design. The home's dramatic, copper-covered porte cochere (coach gate) leads into a 5,400 square-foot open floor plan with extra-high windows and ceilings, french doors and travertine floors, all highlighted by custom-designed fixtures and built-ins. The courtyard is straight out of the film industry's heyday: A full-sized sparkling pool, Zen-inspired water garden and unique soaking tub are surrounded by a fire pit and seating area—perfect for long, luxurious pool-side parties. Surrounded by one level acre of verdant grounds interspersed with professional landscaping and mature redwoods, this residence features its own meditation area, too. A California dream.
