11627 Dawson Drive

On the market seeking $23.995 million last year, the asking price for the 17,000-square-foot Los Altos Hills estate at 11627 Dawson Drive has just been reduced to $18.950 million.

Built for C. Earl Dawson in 1939, on what was then a 130-acre assemblage of land purchased from the University of California in 1936 and at which point it was the largest home in Santa Clara County, Rancho San Antonio has since been whittled down to a mere 5.6-acre estate which the current owner purchased for $6 million in 1997.

And in addition to the main six-bedroom home, which features virgin redwood ceiling beams, an over-sized kitchen under which there’s a 5,000-bottle wine cellar, and a loggia that opens to the patio and pool, beyond which sits the tennis court, the estate includes a two-bedroom pool house, an attached 3-car garage with a 2-car carport, a detached 4-car garage and a 35-car garage which wasn’t an original feature of the property.

    You’d think people with that much money would have far better taste.

    Lots of parking if you are throwing a big party . Does it have a ballroom?

      No doubt created to house a car collection, not as guest parking.

    Truly awesome redwood. Save that no matter what when you rip out that awful garage stadium.
