Waterfront views cannot be more spectacular than this one…
From its prime position in the southernmost part of exclusive Corinthian Island, the exclusive Italianate villa overlooks the yacht club and marina. In the distance, it offers panoramic views of San Francisco, Alcatraz and Angel Islands, and the iconic Golden Gate Bridge.
Offering the dolce vita style and romance of an Italian villa from the 1920s, the residence, which measures around 630 square meters, dates from 2002. A wealthy Mexican entrepreneur, Javier Burillo, owner of Grupo Televisa, bought this property in the late 1990s, demolished everything on it and spent two years creating an instant masterpiece. According to the rumours, he hired the famous architect Nunzio DeSantis to design the home - the real challenge was to make the most of all the available space of the triangular plot.
Despite the compactness of the property on which it is located, DeSantis has designed a home that does not lack privacy, parking space and amenities - here you can even enjoy a game of golf. Ornamental cast iron gates open towards the parking lot located in front of the yellow facade of the villa. The imposing arched passage leads you into an elegant foyer with a jagged, floating staircase, with an incredible view of the bay.
In addition to the living room and dining room with vaulted ceilings, this level features a kitchen equipped with premium Miele and Wolf appliances, a large marble island and wooden floors.
However, one of the main accents of this home is the spectacular main suite - its arched door opens to a huge terrace, which offers a view of the entire city, which you can enjoy from the Jacuzzi. The suite also contains his and her office and twin built-in wardrobes.
The staircase leads you to the lower level, where there is a spacious family room, with three additional bedrooms and two wine cellars. A French door leads you to an immaculately landscaped courtyard. Behind a high hedge, a fantastic space to enjoy the outdoors is hidden, with a kitchen, and a fireplace, a golf course and a narrow fishing lake.
As we found out, this home was put up for sale for the first time in June last year at a price of 29.9 million dollars, and its price was reduced twice - to 27.5, and then to 25.5 million dollars. This time, it will be sold at auction, without reserve.
