About 401 El Cerrito Avenue

With historic grandeur rarely seen, Hillsborough's "Western White House'' ranks among the region's finest legacy estates. This neoclassical Georgian Colonial was redesigned in 1930 by Julia Morgan, the first woman admitted to the Beaux-Arts de Paris architecture program and California's first woman architect, on commission by the Hearst family for whom she designed the legendary Hearst Castle. The palatial 24-room residence sits on 2.9 acres of sprawling manicured grounds and boasts 11 bedrooms, 11 full baths, 4 half baths, a wine cellar, movie theater, gym, and a library inspired by the Oval Office. Gated entry, fountains, trees and hedgerows embrace the property for the ultimate in private entertaining, and an expansive mosaic motorcourt affords ample parking for guests. Triumphant columns open to sprawling lawns, the rose garden, and ivy arches surrounding the statue-studded pool, bathhouse, gazebo, and solar array. Unmatched in pedigree and amenities, this is an estate truly fit for royalty.
