What To Look For:

  • The San Jose Mercury did a front page feature story with full color photos of this restored 1906 Elegant, turn of the century European mansion.
  • Both fireplaces in the master suite were restored. In the bath area a Greek key design cut out of limestone for the vanity was again repeated in the floor in front of the fireplace hearth.
  • Not shown - Three transoms were incorporated using a fleur-de-lys in etched glass, adding to the ambiance of beauty and luxury already existing within the home.
  • The master bedroom cornice against the ceiling was a hand cut paper border. The fireplace was covered with a hand painted folding screen as was the mirror above with a triptych. After a century of aging the mirror had lost it's silver backing.
  • The yellow taffeta drapes are gently blowing out onto the patio while breakfast in bed is being enjoyed to the sounds of Edith Piaf's opera, taking in the views of the seven hills of Hillsborough.
