The Buck Estate is a grand mansion designed after Hampton Court in England and built for a wealthy San Francisco financier and socialite as a summer home. Today, the residence stands as an impressive recollection of what life was like in the early 20th century when the Peninsula was discovered for its ideal climate, gorgeous oak-studded lots, and views out to the San Francisco Bay. Dubbed by earlier owners as Camelot, the residence, which took six years to complete, was host to grand and lavish affairs befitting of the tremendous floor plan that spans more than 16,900 square feet. Outstanding woodwork, towering ceilings with elaborate detail, and leaded glass on almost every window in the home are just a sampling of the extraordinary Tudor-inspired craftsmanship.
Finely finished and well maintained, the home stands ready to move in and enjoy all of its grandeur today. Boasting four levels, with ample room to add 21st century amenities such as a home theatre, gym, and wine cellar on the lower level, the home is comprised of 8 bedrooms, 7 full baths, 2 half baths, and a variety of ancillary rooms with flexible use. Adding to the accommodations is the 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bath carriage house. The grounds of approximately 2.8 acres include a fitting parterre garden, magnificent oaks, and views out to the Bay all in a close-in setting that puts the best of San Francisco and Silicon Valley plus Las Lomitas schools within easy reach.
