Picture 2

Do you guys remember this 25,000+ square foot mansion that I brought to your attention when it was being built? Well, I finally found interior pics of the huge V-shaped mansion, which is located on Paloma Road in Los Altos, CA. My friend, and a loyal Homes of the Rich reader, George Lyons, brought them to my attention. The pictures are featured on the architect’s website. The architects are the prestigious Hablinski + Manion Architectural & Planning group. The home’s interior was tastefully done and does not feel too big.

Here is an excerpt from the company’s website:

Bay Estate ▪ Palo Alto Loire Chateau
Set on a spectacular 18-acre hilltop site with panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay, this classical estate inspired by 18th-century French chateaux is organized around a central entry court enclosing a formal entrance on three sides. The north wing is designed for entertaining on a grand scale, with a ballroom, formal dining room, home theater, wine cellar and spa/gym, while the south wing houses family rooms and bedroom suites. The living areas are all located on the second floor to take advantage of the dramatic Bay views.

    Beautiful, the furniture is to die for! Especially the slightly oriental pieces. So do you know who’s home this is? Or is it just a developers spec home?

      yeah, the furniture is great. It belongs to some lady, but I forgot who. I’ll find out for you.

      It belongs to billionaire investor Yuri Milner. He bought it for $100m.

    way too tacky and over-the-top for me. anytime i see an entire room dedicated towards the color of lavender then i know there’s an instant problem. would make for a great spot to haunt so i’ll hafta keep in mind should there be an afterlife and i happen to die sullen & resentful.

      I would normally 110% agree with this comment! However while there is a lavender room there is also a brown room, a green room, a white room, a blue room, a red room etc, why not have one of each. I know that the Decor in most Mc Mansions these days try and reminisce on the gilded age and fall way short and its just a tacky mess of something they should have never tried, but as far as reproducing that look today goes I think she’s done really well -irrespective of whether I agree with thats style or not (Refer first sentence) And at the end of the day its some old ladies house -good on her 😀

      Saying that, it must be said that the entrance/stair/foyer is disgusting.

      Peace

    A very grand home. Hablinski and Manion seems to be one of the better architect companies in the US.

    I love a lot of the rooms! Most of them look like something out of the white house.

    Typical “classical” architecture built by a firm that doesn’t know anything about classicism. Looks pretentious and cheap.

      Perhaps it is French with an American twist? Or “Classical contemporary” or whatever you wanna call it. USually just the facades that look a bit like the original chateau, and then the house is called claisscal.

    Wonder if the architects still have a copy of the plans..Would love to recreate this facade on a future home construction. Anyone know what kind of limestone they used? Indiana or French?
