Sure you knew Hillsborough has mansions, but huge, castle-like estates situated on enough land to establish a national park? For 835 Chiltern Road is all that and more. So much more! The property, billed by Christie’s International as “one of the West Coast’s largest private residences,” includes a 5 bedroom main house nearly 36,000 square feet. Not satisfied? You will also find three separate apartments?. and a guest house, all of it resting peacefully on more than six acres of private park land. Built in 1992, the estate manages to straddle the atmosphere of an Elizabethan castle—yes, those are actual 15th century Gothic doorways you’re drooling over-- with all (and we do mean all) mods con: indoor and outdoor pool; gym; racquetball, squash and tennis courts; library; home theater; master suite with his and her dressing rooms; 13 fireplaces, offices and an art gallery. Outside find fruit orchards, English gardens with a maze(!), waterfalls, koi ponds and bay views. All that splendor will only cost you $48,888,000. Don’t have the cash on hand? Finance it for a mere $258,050 a month. So yes, you could pay the mortgage here or buy a new house every month or two somewhere else; but something tells us those houses won’t look quite like The Chiltern.
