Life of the Party!

All Remodeled Lower North Cul-de-Sac

Located in Hillsborough — Lower North Hillsborough

Style: Flowing Indoor/Outdoor

A scenic passage along legendary Forest View Avenue leads you to this tucked-away cul-de-sac retreat. Knightwood Lane delivers the besty of the Lower North Hillsborough lifestyle, defining privacy, prestige, and pure livability.

This single-level design has been totally re-imagined and masterfully renovated by acclaimed builder Gordon Kullberg & Son. Nationally recognized architect Christian Rice shows his penchant for rooms that interact harmoniously and maximize the outdoor envrionment.

From the very first moment, the lifestyle revels in indoor/outdoor dynamics. Elaborate hardscape, cultivated gardens, and artisan stonework reflect a wine country charisma from the curb. Inside, architectural signatures include the octagonal tray ceilings trimmed with intricate moldings. But most dramatically, from nearly every room, French doors swing out to invite the daily function of the flat usable grounds. The new design was redefined as a U-shaped one-level, revolving around a central courtyard and pool. The courtyard, complete with poolside built-in barbecue, becomes an outdoor "living room" that seamlessly engages multiple rooms of the home.

The lifestyle epitomizes multiple luxury destinations, from indoors to outdoors. Wine country inspiration brings elegance with a touch of the rustic, spa-like comforts, and complete reverence to garden living. At the heart of the home, the enormous kitchen/family great room is a Wow-Factor statement as your everyday hub. This Houzz-worthy family mecca expands out through retractable La Cantina doors, blurring the line between the family room and the central courtyard. In the great room, don’t miss the towering ceilings, king-size island, and appliances by Sub-Zero and Thermador. A Tahoe-esque stone fireplace warms the proceedings. For privacy and flexibility, the floorplan includes a sequestered south wing master suite, plus three additional bedrooms (including second master suite) at the north wing. The dual master suite layout welcomes options for guests, extended family, or teens. Throughout the property, premium amenities enhance your experience: central air conditioning, marble and granite surfaces, rich moldings, built-in speakers, recessed lighting, full professional landscaping, built-in barbecue and outdoor refrigerator, Pebble Tec pool surface, and two usable side yards (north side yard features a grassy lawn; south side yard hosts the hidden hot tub and basketball hoop!).

The innate beauty of the property is its ability to sweep you off your feet with "big picture" livability, while also endearing you with detail, surprise, and vignettes. Case in point, the raised garden patio at the rear of the yard, where you may lounge in Zen-like repose, while overlooking the property's resort-like assets...Joie de Vivre in its truest form.

Lower North Hillsborough is one of the elite neighborhoods in the United States. To own a home in this location, is to avail of the finest in education, architectural distinction, enduring pedigree, and commute connectivity. In a word…timeless.
