Have the best of both worlds: A country estate with an unmatched level of sophistication and a convenient location within San Jose’s coveted Almaden Valley.
Designed and built on 5.5 level acres of land just off McKean Road at 21568 Tyr Lane, the home has been lovingly maintained and updated inside and out by its original owners since it was built in 2006.
Behind the gated entry at the end of the cul-de-sac is almost 4,000 square feet of living space on one level with five large bedrooms, four bathrooms, a grand entrance, expansive great room and a six-car garage. Multiple French doors offer a seamless flow from just about every room to the amazing outdoor space.
Doors are 8 feet high and 36 inches wide. The attic has ceilings that are at least 10 feet high and this area can be converted to an extra approximately 2,500 square feet in living space.
Also, approved plans for 51×15 = 765-square-foot addition.
A second home on the property has its own address and features about 1,000 square feet of living space, also on one level, with two bedrooms, one-and-a-half bathrooms, a full kitchen, living room, laundry, HVAC, and a fenced yard. This home is ideal for a caretaker, in-laws, guests or possibly an income-producing rental.
The 5.5 acres of land offer ultimate privacy, fabulous views and an unlimited potential to create your own slice of heaven. Plant a vineyard, board horses, extend the fruit tree orchard, design a resort backyard or relax in its picture-perfect setting.
A grand double-door entry opens to a beautifully designed home richly layered with Brazilian cherry hardwood and polished tile floors, 10-foot-high and vaulted ceilings, crown molding, Old World textured walls, and 8-foot doors.
Additional features include dual-pane windows, a whole-house fan, six security cameras, dual HVAC and a recirculating hot water pump.
The open living and dining rooms and the gourmet kitchen create a spectacular gathering space with surround sound, a gas fireplace, two French doors, a dining nook with a bay window, and a well-appointed gourmet kitchen.
Granite counters with a full granite backsplash wrap around the spacious kitchen that also has a large breakfast bar. Alder wood cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting offers lots of storage. Stainless appliances include a Dacor 48-inch range with six burners and dual ovens, Bosch dishwasher, two Sub-Zero refrigerator drawers plus a full-size Sub-Zero refrigerator.
The master bedroom suite is a vision of luxury behind its double-door entry. It features a gas fireplace, crown molding, a ceiling fan and dual walk-in closets.
Radiant-heated bathroom floors were installed when the master bathroom
was updated last year.
This luxurious spa-like room has a free-standing bathtub, a curbless shower with decorative marble tile, dual rain and dual handheld showerheads, and two 6-foot-long, furniture-style vanities.
Two more bedrooms each have French door access to the backyard gardens and en suite bathrooms.
A French door is also at the end of the bedroom wing hallway with access to a breezeway and gardens. Plans have been approved for the addition of a two-bedroom, two-bathroom ADU with a kitchen and laundry on this side of the home.
Off the great room is a bedroom with a full en suite bathroom, separate front entry, and garage access and is an ideal guest room. Just off the foyer, a fifth bedroom that has a front-facing view window and plush carpet and would make an excellent executive office.
An orchard of fruit trees includes persimmon, apple, plum, fig, apricot and olive. A large loggia and vine-covered pergola offer a picturesque setting and outdoor entertaining venue overlooking the expansive lawn, trees, and garden beds. Paver walkways meander around the home.
Additional features include an oversize six-car garage, two staircases to attic storage, large laundry/mudroom with granite counters, cabinetry and backyard access.
Also on the property are two large storage units plus an equipment shed.
This fabulous rural setting has convenient proximity to shopping, restaurants, parks, community center, library and freeway access into the heart of Silicon Valley and south to Monterey County. Top-rated schools, all within less than 3 miles, include Graystone Elementary, Bret Harte Middle, and Leland High School.
