3556 Sweigert Road, San Jose

 
 

Capturing expansive views from San Francisco to San Jose with sunsets and city lights, this exquisitely architected and detailed grand home is arguably one of the most meticulously crafted, elegant estate homes in northern San Jose.

Nestled on a ~28,107 sf parcel on the exclusive Sweigert Road, this magnificent retreat is less than 10 minutes to the 2019 Berryessa BART and close to Silicon Valley employers via highways 280, 880, and 101. The owners custom built this fine home in 2000 which spans ~5,118 sf with 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2 half bathrooms and a 4 car garage. This home was not just beautifully built but also solidly built with over 100 piers averaging 30 feet deep.

The open and bright melding of Neo Victorian architecture with California luxury grand-scale living is achieved with over 100 windows by Eagle, now part of Anderson windows, washing the home in abundant natural light and opening the home to the surrounding spectacular views. High quality Hunter Douglas Silhouette or 2” wood blinds dress the larger windows. The blend of Neo Victorian with modern luxury is further enhanced with an open floorplan, soaring coffered ceilings, bold crown molding, and generous wainscoting.

And what would Neo Victorian be without a turret which houses the upstairs office and provides panoramic views of the valley floor spanning from San Jose to San Francisco? 

Like the breathtaking turret, every room in this grand home boasts architecturally rich details. The dining room is graced by an oversized bay window which invites beautiful views of San Jose. Subtle, angled walls introduced into the family room, kitchen, pool room, and master suite are architected in both a practical manner as well as to command interest.

The chef’s kitchen widens into the great room and formal dining room for a truly open floorplan. The kitchen is a refreshing blend of countryside estate living with modern conveniences for contemporary entertaining. There is an expanse of pleasing, white cabinets in both the kitchen and large walk-in pantry with a second refrigerator and  11’ ceilings. Blue Pearl granite slab counters with shimmering blues sweep across the large center island. An old world-styled range and dual ovens, a warming drawer, and a farmhouse sink and island sink with Rohl faucets harken to the countryside yet with modern features for entertaining large gatherings.

The great room (family room) is equipped with surround sound wiring, built-in oak cabinets, and a wood burning fireplace. The adjoining pool room provides plenty of space for that perfect shot during a fun game of pool.

Double doors swing open into the grand master suite with a coffered ceiling and breathtaking views of San Jose.  The large walk-in closet even features a convenient washer and dryer for smaller loads of laundry.  Or drop dirty clothes in the upstairs laundry shoot and wash them in the huge laundry room downstairs.

And few homes boast au pair quarters or guest quarters as large, private, and leisurely as in this home.  Your guests will not want to leave.

Neo Victorian millwork is accented in the outdoor verandas which wrap around the home. The decking of the verandas is Ipe (Brazilian walnut) for easier maintenance. Fine millwork framing the verandas imbue elegance and invite leisure. 

The solar-heated black bottom pool and gas-heated spa enjoy sun exposure while guests might relax on the back patio or shady verandas in the afternoon. The ~96 sf pool house with half bath may be transformed into a variety of uses, such as a cat or dog chalet given there is a fenced dog run on the side of the property and a dog bath in the spacious laundry room. The small orchard of about 40 fruit trees thrives in the delightful San Jose climate.

This luxury home finds stately company in the other lovely and grand homes on Sweigert Road. This quiet street is close to shopping, such Sprouts, Costco, and the Great Mall.

For outdoor enthusiasts, the sprawling Sierra Vista Open Space Preserve and Alum Rock Park offer miles of hiking, running and mountain biking trails, each less than 20 minutes away.

VillaSport Athletic Club and Spa, which opened in early 2018, is about 8 minutes away. 

Whether inside or outside, you will find ample inspiration for creativity and end of day relaxation while drinking in the breathtaking views and amenities at 3556 Sweigert Road.
