Project Profile: San Ramon Custom Home
This custom home is designed for a growing family. Located on Tassajara Road near San Ramon, it is set to be completed in late 2019 and occupied in early 2020. It is being designed in the twentieth century modern architectural motif. At present, the project is in the production drawing stage.
The house is two stories above the basement garage. It includes indoor and exterior pools, a roof skydeck, solar panels and wind turbines for supplemental energy. The home consists of 20,000 sq. ft. of living space with a 2,500 sq. ft. six car garage. The property consists of six acres of sloped site with a high plateau where the home will be located. The site will include a 12,000 sq. ft. fish pond, tram lift and roadway bridge to the home. The house is designed in a 1930’s modern architectural style, unlike other homes in San Ramon.
The entrance is oriented to the East to maximize privacy. The home is designed to meet the requirements of the family for ample living and entertainment space. It is designed to accommodate three or four generations of family members in the Indian tradition of each generation taking care of its elders in the home.
The home will have eight bedrooms, each with a bathroom and walk-in closet. It will include a media room, wine cellar and a lap pool in the solarium. It will have a porte-cochere, a two-story grand entry staircase and a garden wall. There will be an elevator and central stairway that provides access to four levels of the house. The home will includes two laundry rooms, a home office, a study, a full service pantry and butler’s pantry. There will be fully covered balconies on the main and upper levels, positioned at strategic locations around the home to provide sheltered exterior living space.
