One of the nation’s finest private residences, the hand-crafted Villa Lauriston ($15,880,000) is incomparable and unique. Commissioned in the 1920’s, this 20 room Florentine Villa features the finest historic materials and artifacts from San Francisco mansions and European palaces and churches. This architectural jewel is set in a private 28.4 acre park-like parcel, surrounded by 1,000 acres dedicated as open space lands in perpetuity. Villa Lauriston is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, and the region’s major airports, the San Francisco International airport and San Jose International airport are only 35 minutes away. Modern conveniences have been blended with the romantic finishes and furnishings from the past to create an environment that is elegant enough for entertaining dignitaries, yet comfortable and conducive to gatherings of family and friends.
