It takes dedicated and mindful intent to bring design excellence to fruition. 1432 Webster provides the perfect integration of luxury and a natural aesthetic. The result is a rare opportunity to experience the best of both worlds: be part of a thriving and bustling community while having the ability to come home to a tranquil living experience inspired by nature itself.

The grand formal entry designed for the display of art boasts a floating steel-framed staircase with glass partitions and a three-story-tall cascading chandelier that was commissioned for the home. You are welcomed immediately by the open floor plan’s indoor/outdoor concept.

French white oak floors flow throughout the home. Portraiture of the outdoor gardens is presented by the well-placed picture windows and numerous dramatic floor-to-ceiling pocket doors. An epicurean’s dream kitchen with a show-stopping 9 ft. by 6.5 ft. island, professional-grade appliances, and walk-in pantry offers a seamless transition to the outdoor dining area.

The first floor features what was the original historic home’s living room. It has now been reconfigured into a full ensuite bedroom/office with divided light windows, dual skylights, vaulted ceilings, and a gas fireplace.

The floating steel-framed staircase with its cascading chandelier takes you to the second level. An outdoor balcony with a glass banister lines the hallway, overlooking the rear yard while leading you to the primary suite. Two additional ensuite bedrooms with walk-in closets, one with a built-in desk and bookcase, are located on the second floor as well. Enjoy the canopy of the majestic redwood trees as you retreat to the primary suite with its vaulted ceilings, oversized picture windows, spa-like bath, and spacious walk-in closet with luxurious built-ins.

The lower living level of the 1432 Webster is as good as it gets. It is flooded with natural light coming from the stairwell and lower level patio that presents a water feature, Ipe deck, and a steel spiral staircase that provides direct access to the rear yard. This level invites recreation, entertainment, and delight and includes an expansive live-edge bar boasting a 400+ bottle glass-enclosed, climate-controlled wine cellar. Adjacent to the bar, a flex-space can serve as a large study with a built-in ladder and bookcases, game room, or family room.

The home theatre is a work of art with its custom acoustically-important stacked reclaimed wood wall and built-in Bowers & Wilkins speakers. The smartly designed and glass-enclosed gym has a sliding glass door to the light well that brings in both natural light and fresh air during your workouts.

The outdoor space is primed for entertaining with spacious patios and decks, steel-framed trellis with an electric space heater, natural gas fire pit, water feature, natural plantings, and a stately redwood grove.
