Significant Sale Spotlight

December, 3, 2020

This extraordinary custom Ruby Hill home was a record-setting sale in Pleasanton, California. Listed by Venture Sotheby’s International Realty agent, Stephany Jenkins. This home was built by John Clawson and is situated on an expansive lot, with the finest materials, finishes, and quality craftsmanship used throughout.

Stunning spiral staircase entryway.

In Stephany’s words, “the sellers had custom-built the home just over ten years ago, and they were very meticulous about maintaining it. Each room was handcrafted and customized down to the bedding. The home itself is 10,200 sq ft, but it also has an attic that is about 2,000 additional square feet. The layout was so well done that it did not feel too large, and each room served a purpose that would be used”.

Meticulously customized throughout.

“The sellers were absolutely wonderful to work with and spent a good amount of time showing me how to use the features in the home. For showings, we wanted to showcase the style of the home, so the staging was minimal. We mostly just removed some personal items and replaced them with some neutral accessories. It was always fun to see the reactions of people viewing the home when they saw the views along with the fact that it has an elevator, movie theatre, and game room, to name a few.”

Entertainer’s backyard with covered patio.

This stunning estate received multiple offers. Even after entering escrow, some remorseful buyers that did not write an offer reached out, hoping for an opportunity to purchase the home. When asked about the continued interest, Stephany remarked, “it’s definitely one of those homes that you can’t stop thinking about. I feel incredibly honored that I was selected to sell it. It truly is one of a kind!” 

Including a pool, hot tub, gas fire pit, expansive lawn area, and more.
