Compass High-Tech Hill Home Soars Above Silicon Valley

“Tech meets nature in the amazing outdoor venues we have created"

Los Gatos, Calif., June 09, 2020 - In one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Los Gatos, California, husband and wife team Tony and Elena Licari has created a piece of modern home art with every detail planned to optimize the owner’s living experience and blend the 5,000 square foot contemporary craftsmen into its quiet natural setting.

“My wife Elena and I have spent the past three years building this home to match technology with its spectacular setting in one of the most exclusive hill areas of Los Gatos,” said the owner of All Construction, Tony Licari. “The high-tech options include a full automation system. With just a touch of a button, every light, fire pit, and waterfall are activated. The outdoor venues of this home rival the amenities of five-star resorts.”

The home has five bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms - including a master suite suitable for any high-tech titan or discerning buyer - a junior master bedroom and seven bathrooms. A sense of harmony and peacefulness in the design brings a sense of Zen to this hill home.

Elena Licari, who also is a full-time firefighter with the San Jose Fire Department in addition to her job as a top-producing realtor specializing in the development of high-end, custom properties with the Velasco Group in Los Gatos, said the home beautifully integrates the latest technology, both inside and outside.

“Tech meets nature in the amazing outdoor venues we have created,” she said. “Rocks that were quarried from the site were used to create a ‘Yosemite’ look and three outdoor kitchens were designed to capitalize on the property’s microclimate and elevation, offering sunny, shaded and intimate options for outdoor entertaining.”

Multiple fire pits, a hot tub, custom lighting and water features are all part of the outdoor venues that also include a 55-foot-wide waterfall with flames that dance on top of the water. Other outdoor amenities include a multi-sports court, putting green, 550-foot zip line, a natural walking trail and an electric golf cart to get around the property.

Inside, the living and dining rooms feature five-foot linear gas fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling tile and granite surrounds. The kitchen was built for a gourmet who appreciates flush-mounted cabinetry imported from Spain, bookmatched Calcutta dual waterfall islands, professional-grade Thermador appliances and dual kitchen faucets over an oversized farm-style sink.

“My favorite is the master bathroom with its curbless 15-foot wet room that includes dual steamers, a soaking tub, five showerheads and a penetrating island into the glass-enclosed shower,” Elena Licari said. “Four surround speakers and multi-colored LED lights help add to the spa experience.”

But the pièce de résistance may well be the home’s lover-level game room, which includes a 1,500-bottle capacity, temperature-controlled, glass-enclosed wine cellar and a state-of-the-art movie theater with a 130-inch screen and a fiber optic ceiling that lights up like the night sky.
