Prominent Two-Story Luxury at One of Lakeview’s Very Best Streets!
Commanding a fully usable corner lot, this architecturally designed beauty enjoys one of Lakeview’s very best streets. Buckingham Way features Lakeview’s newer generation of executive-quality floorplans. Prominent curb appeal showcases a knolltop perch, French-inspired detailing, and stately proportions. The Wow Factor begins in the two-story entry boasting 18 ft. ceilings and a grand spiral staircase. From here, large room sizes unfold within a perfect floorplan. The ambassador-scale living room stretches over 31 feet across and is topped by 10 ft. ceilings. The living room is the perfect vantage point to marvel at the upgraded custom Marvin windows, which wrap the space in soothing light. Across the foyer, the formal dining room enjoys 9 ft. ceilings and creates a handsome traditional sequence overlooking the front gardens. The home office has become an essential in our Covid era. And this home again delivers, with a tucked away executive office of rich paneling and rear garden outlook.
The most desired connection of the kitchen/family great room expands across the back of the home with direct access to the enormous, walk-out flat yard. In the family room, 9 ft. ceilings set the tone, while amenities include a wall of built-in display cabinetry, plus the consummate sommelier's 84-inch Sub-Zero wine cellar. The open chef's kitchen is decked with stainless steel professional appliances and a center island with breakfast bar seating. The pulse of daily family life revolves between this eat-in kitchen and the Houzz-worthy back yard. And best of all, the transition from kitchen/family to yard is truly seamless. Before we venture out to your own park-like yard, let's follow the grand staircase up to the additional luxuries of the bedroom level. Three family bedrooms occupy the west wing of the hallway. Optimized for privacy and vistas, the master suite features a raised ceiling, plenty of space for a seating area, and outlooks above rolling hills and southern horizon. An immense walk-in closet is outfitted with extensive maple built-ins. The marble bathroom is inspired by the 5-Star Hotel experience complete with steam shower...a true retreat!
Stepping outside, grand entertainment terraces survey vast lawns and the privacy of perimeter trees. The rear yard is carefully planned to dazzle family and friends for all seasons. Usable parcels of this caliber are extremely rare at any price point. Imagine parties of all sizes...the savory aroma of the barbecue charcoal, frolicking with pets, and the promise of memories to be made. Accenting the bounty of the rear grounds, the current owner has created a professional-level batting cage for the baseball/softball enthusiast. This amenity could also accommodate future bocce ball, golf driving range, dog run, or other recreation. Don't miss the perimeter bike path, which traces its way around the yard for little ones' trikes and two-wheelers, morning to night. Giant redwoods accent the periphery for utmost seclusion, a stalwart border to the sun-drenched core of one of Lakeview's best yards!
Buckingham Way is surely one of the top streets of Hillsborough's Lakeview area.The consistency of larger luxury homes, and the "interior" location of the street enhance the ambiance. The assignment to West Elementary and Crocker Middle keeps you in one of the best school districts in the state. Whether working from home in the comfortable office, or embarking on your commute, this prestigious location near Highway 280 will continue to reward your lifestyle.
