15781 Hidden Hill Road

The one-acre lot upon which a rather well-kept 3,900-square-foot ranch home sat at 15781 Hidden Hill Road sold for $2.45 million in 2012. And today, a modern 6,500-square-foot home now occupies upon the Los Gatos parcel.

Designed by architect Curt Cline, the two-level home includes an Italian kitchen, walls of sliding glass doors, and five bedrooms all on the main floor.

The lower level features a showcase wine cellar, home theater and three-car garage.

And the newly finished home has just hit the market listed for $8.95 million. Have we mentioned the $4.2 million Flintstone House which sits upon a two-acre Peninsula parcel a little to the north?

    Nice attempt at humour, but it isn’t “infill” if the existing structure(s) is(are) demolished; OTOH, if they had erected a $100M “market rate” condo tower in place of the tennis court, or a 5 units of “affordable housing” in the pool area, THAT would have been infill.

    [Editor’s Note: While tongue-in-cheek above, infill actually applies to the redevelopment of ‘underutilized’ parcels with existing structures as well.]

      Well, yeah, but if it was ‘underutilized’ before, then it’s still underutilized.

    Los Gatos = South Bay

    The older home looked more pleasant to live in day to day.

    God I hope they saved that outdoor BBQ. Tile to die for 🙂

    House is beautiful but I hope they recycled as much as they could of the old home. I’m on a mailing list for houses being demo’d around the Peninsula and it’s amazing the stuff they are tossing/selling: redwood siding, new window frames, marble, appliances, stained glass, etc because they’re going to build something bigger and better. It seems a bit wasteful, but if you have $8 mil to burn to represent your station in life, better to replace an old home than build on open space. Coming from someone whose car is 260K miles and going strong, I guess I just don’t have the guts to do that; people like me are stuck with bourgeois tastes, surrounded by dated, boring, but perfectly serviceable possessions.

      Affluence in the USA is now defined by how much you can waste.

      @jenofla How might one get on the mailing list for houses being demo’ed around the Peninsula? Thanks.

        Any salvage company, really. The one I like to browse is Driftwood Salvage.

    So much to love (big windows, clean lines, beautiful setting, great exterior flow).. yet so much to hate (that trendy kitchen that is already outdated, those cheap looking recessed lights, the 3.5 star hotel doors and handles).
