Modern Meets Warmth in Custom San Jose “Moto Home”

Stunning in its thoughtful architectural details, this Willow Glen custom home joins form and function with a blend of modern style and warmth. Natural light flows from clerestory windows highlighting the aesthetics of open-concept space that flows beautifully indoors and out. Ideal for entertaining, the great room with its expansive fireplace and automated art lift TV-hideaway opens fully to the interior courtyard via oversized La Cantina sliding doors. The courtyard delights the senses with red corrugated steel walls, lush green privacy plantings, a custom smart fountain, two seating/dining areas, a built-in pizza oven, Big Green Egg grill, and Corten gas-plumbed firepit. The gorgeous indoor kitchen gleams with Caesarstone counters, a colorful handmade Fireclay tile backsplash, stainless steel Kitchen-Aid and Jenn-Air appliances, and a breakfast bar. Tucked into the side yard is a chef’s bonus dream garden with raised beds from which to stock your kitchen.

Engineered walnut floors flow throughout the great room and three bedrooms, which include a spa-like master retreat with custom Ipe bridge to the courtyard, walk-through built-in closet, and a gleaming marble bathroom with oversized step-in shower with thermostatic controls and dual vanity. Two additional first-floor bedrooms, 1 with built-in bed with hide-away TV and direct access both to the courtyard and to the side garden, share a generous hallway full-sized shower/tub bath with thermostatic controls and EuroStone vanity.

Where the home’s customization shines brightest is in the garage and basement, custom-designed for the homeowners’ motorcycle racing hobby. From the two-car garage, access an industrial scissor-lift that lowers sizeable equipment to the full finished basement with its custom all-purpose workshop including details like plumbing for compressed air and 220V power outlets. Also on the basement level are two additional flexible living spaces, one that could serve as a rec room or as a 4th bedroom with oversized light-filled egress windows, and another ripe for your imaginative use, like for a home gym, playroom, or craft room.

Additional smart features include light and shade controls, alarm systems, and more. This home is a must-see for those seeing the best in California indoor-outdoor living alongside hobbyist space that doesn’t get better than this.
