Shimmon Residence

Los Altos Hills, California

The Shimmon Residence is a dramatic transformation of an existing Los Altos Hills mountaintop residence that had suffered from numerous incremental renovations over the past several decades. The striking new design completely unifies the home with improved planning and magnificent detailing of sophisticated new materials and finishes throughout; Italian Grigia Capria quartzite stone flooring, Carrera marble, mahogany doors and windows, wool carpeting and stainless steel on the interior and integral colored stucco, stainless steel railings and mahogany siding, soffits and eaves on the exterior. A new below-grade theater and wine cellar, a new detached office structure, and new landscaping with an all-glass tile infinity edge pool complete the composition of this sophisticated new residential compound.
