The classic and signature home design by Steven Kubitschek showcases exceptional craftsmanship, detailed millwork and elegant volume ceilings. His design and subsequent expansion and remodel of this Alamo home also articulate an excellent flow and livability for today’s lifestyle.
Located in the gated Stonegate neighborhood at 3065 Stonegate Drive, this home was built by Dick Humphries in 1992 and features more than 5,200 square feet of meticulously maintained living space that lives like a single story. There is a main-level master bedroom retreat, guest quarters, dedicated office, stately formal rooms and expansive informal gathering spaces that seamlessly connect to spectacular outdoor amenities. Staircases provide access to a private two-bedroom, one-bathroom north wing with flexible loft space, and to a home theater room/second master in the south wing.
There is an additional 587-square-foot pool/studio guesthouse with full kitchen and full bathroom adjacent to the Hawkins Pebble Tec pool and spa and its wraparound decking and patio. More than two dozen Valley oak trees embrace the .74-acre property that is ideally located at the foot of Mount Diablo with nearby trailhead access and the peaceful surroundings of its exclusive location. Pathways also meander from the level patio and poolside deck to terraced gardens and additional venues under the oaks either ideal for a play structure or quiet retreat.
Inside the leaded glass front door with transoms and side panels, the foyer has a soaring ceiling with new chandelier and skylights.
The adjoining formal living and dining rooms are elegant rooms defined by columns and arched entries, adorned with vaulted box-beam ceilings, and bright with natural light from the large picture windows and French doors.
The layout of the gourmet kitchen, adjoining casual dining area and the expansive family room is ideal for a growing family or entertaining.
The kitchen was tastefully updated in 2000 and is well-appointed with natural cherry cabinetry and seeded glass doors, granite counters and tumbled stone backsplash, large island and breakfast bar with built-in wine storage and cookbook storage, Electrolux double ovens, Bosch dishwasher, Dacor cooktop, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and stainless farm sink. The casual dining area features a built-in corner curio with seeded glass door and French doors to a new redwood deck.
Oversize windows and a wall of window and sliding French doors allow abundant natural light and provide views of the backyard gardens and pool from the adjacent family room.
Glass French doors open to the formal office that is enhanced with a fireplace with marble surround, box-beam ceiling, wainscot and views of the front gardens.
A home theater was added with extensive acoustic enhancements including “walls within walls” for exceptional sound within and soundproof from the rest of the home, a 110-inch screen and JVC high res projector. This room also has a removable elevated seating platform and French doors to a balcony overlooking the pool and gardens. This room could also be used as a second master suite because of its adjoining full bathroom with slate tile floors, jetted tub, oversize shower and closet.
The main-level master suite is a luxurious retreat and was expanded to include a spacious sitting room area, fireplace, and French door to the back patio and pool with views of the oaks. The master bath was also expanded to accommodate a large jetted tub, dual-sink vanity, makeup vanity, steam shower and two walk-in closets with custom built-in organizers.
The guest quarters on the main level feature a redesigned bathroom with stylish vessel sink and glass enclosed shower with decorative tile.
Additional features include a three-car garage with side access driveway and staircase access to attic storage, two community tennis courts, divided light metal-clad wood windows, three HVAC units, updated water heater and new front landscaping by Omar Khorsheed (owner of Habitat & DeVries Landscape Design and Construction Style), oversize laundry room with built-in workstation, a two-level tree house, new custom-designed wood garage doors and hardware, new entry chandelier and wall sconces, gutters and downspouts. A third dormer window was also added to complement the exterior style of the home.
The home is tucked within the private Stonegate neighborhood but is very close to downtown Danville and Alamo amenities, freeway and BART access, parks, and top-rated local schools in the San Ramon Valley Unified School District.
