This $25 Million Modern Architectural Masterpiece In Silicon Valley Is Perfect For A Tech Billionaire

Silicon Valley has no shortage of incredible real estate, and one of the region’s crown jewels is back on the market for $25 million. Known as Mora House, this modern architectural masterpiece is located at 10718 Mora Drive in Los Altos Hills, California in the South Bay area.

According World Mansion, the house was completed in 2016 and built by former Canadian fire chief Melvin Vaughn, who got into real estate development as a side business. Vaughn commissioned Swatt Miers Architects to design this modern abode. The firm, known for its modern California style, constructed the home using wood, glass and concrete for a sleek, modern look.

The property totals approximately 2.7 acres, although the house itself sits on over an acre of land and is accompanied by an adjacent 1.44 acre parcel of building land. This is the perfect opportunity to turn this property into a family resort or corporate retreat.

It’s not hard to imagine the type of buyer this house might attract given its neighboring Silicon Valley tech companies like Apple, Google and Meta. The ultra-private home has 9,677 square feet of interior space, along with six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, three half bathrooms, and nearly every amenity imaginable. It is located at the end of a private road which leads to an extensive car park and a private mini vineyard. Inside, there are 24-foot high ceilings with sliding Fleetwood glass walls that open onto sunny terraces, so the outside is never too far away.

The home features not one, but two exquisite master suites that feel like their own separate wings of the house, including oversized ensuite bathrooms, closets, and their own private outdoor space. The home is built with only the finest craftsmanship, best seen in the sleek private office and the German-engineered kitchen with an island and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry. Other amenities include a lower entertainment level with a movie theater, walk-in wine cellar, family room with wet bar, fitness center, and yoga space. Almost every room has floor-to-ceiling glass windows or doors, so you’re never without a view.

Outside there is a resort-like infinity pool, spa, expansive terraces and tiered terraced lawns all overlooking the surrounding nature. There is also an 800 square foot freestanding guest house, also with a private terrace and its own swimming pool. There’s even a putting green and plenty of landscaped areas for year-round outdoor entertainment.

The property also uniquely borders Rancho San Antonio County Park and the 3,900+ acre open space preserve, meaning your home is guaranteed to be surrounded by privacy. Still, its prime hilltop location means there are fabulous panoramic views of San Francisco Bay. Los Altos Hills is in Santa Clara County and offers proximity to the Bay Area, Wine Country, Silicon Valley and Palo Alto and more. While you are close to city life, Los Altos is known for its rolling hills, scenic valleys, idyllic farms, mild climate and residential lifestyle.

As this is the tech capital of the country, the seller is considering cryptocurrency as an alternative payment method.
