About 20201 Via Santa Teresa

Located off a private drive on one of the best parcels in the esteemed Graystone neighborhood of the Almaden Valley foothills, this 2.89 acres of mostly flat terrain offers incredible privacy in a storybook setting. The sprawling upper meadow has a 3-stall barn and paved driveway perfect for a trailer, RV or boat storage. Taking center stage is the home itself which is strategically positioned on a plateau to take full advantage of the majestic view of the Western mountains from the two-story octangular Great Room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a wrap-around deck. The serene and spacious front patio offers gardens, fruit trees, built-in pool, hot tub, pool house/gym, and tucked away in its own vignette is a trickling water-feature pond and private patio. Not to be missed is the oversized 3-car detached garage with work space, storage, and paved parking for any number of cars! In the back yard, walk down the gently sloped steps to the full-size, fenced tennis court where many a game and tournaments have been played. Tennis enthusiasts will be overjoyed! Just past the tennis court is the lower meadow that fronts Via Santa Teresa and can be used for a myriad of things. This fabulous country home has a huge primary bedroom suite with ample closet space on the main level, and a separate office with built-in book shelves off the main entry. The kitchen is delightfully 'farmhouse' complete with a wood-burning stove framed with a brick hearth, fire-engine red tiled counter top, and rustic grey-oak color wood flooring. Four additional bedrooms are upstairs including one with an ensuite bathroom, and one that could be a family room, game room or guest suite. Relax and rejuvenate during the twilight hours watching the spectacular western sunsets and then star-gazing from your very own paradise sanctuary.

The property begins at the corner of Via Santa Teresa and the private road that is the ingress for only three homes. Mature tress, foliage, and seasonal creek boarders the properties lower meadow/pasture, the tennis court, and backyard garden. Just past the house with pool and pool house is the upper meadow/pasture with barn, and has it's own paved parking for recreational vehicles.
