Los Gatos Hilltop Residence

Situated on a flat 1-acre hilltop terrace that offers panoramic views of the Silicon Valley, this estate hugs low to the terrain so as not to block the views from the neighboring homes above. The single story compound consists of a main living area and garage, a master bedroom wing and a guest wing, each wing connected with a covered roof. Low horizontal roofs, planted with a "green" live roof helps the building blend in as seen from above, while large seamless expanses of automated-tinting glass on the downhill side take advantage of great views. The site includes an infinity edge pool and tennis court.
