On the water in the friendly community of New Almaden

Surrounded by the mountains and rolling hills of Almaden Quicksilver County Park and within walking distance to trailheads is a private retreat bordering Alamitos Creek.

This hidden gem, a community of homes embraced by its peaceful surroundings and rural setting at the south end of San Jose’s Almaden Valley, is also conveniently located within 3 miles of top-rated schools including Graystone Elementary, Bret Harte Middle, and Leland High School, freeway access, and many shopping options.

The park-style setting of the .37-acre property at 21581 Bertram Road showcases almost 2,000 square feet of living space and fabulous ultra-private indoor-outdoor living with a wrap-around upper deck, a spacious front deck under the canopy of a gorgeous shade tree, gardens with multiple fruit trees, grapevines, a gazebo, and more room to customize for your lifestyle. A paver patio under a pergola offers an ideal outdoor dining venue near a spacious patio and barbecue area.

The open, light-filled floor plan features hardwood and tile flooring, recessed lights, fresh interior and exterior paint, and a seamless flow to outdoor space.

Four bedrooms and three bathrooms include two primary suites on the main level and a flexible-use office/workout room, an eat-in kitchen, and spacious living and family rooms. Two additional bedrooms on the lower level share a Jack and Jill bathroom and can access the backyard. A large lower-level storage room is ideal for a wine cellar and a separate office space with an outside private entry.

A gas fireplace anchors the living room. A wall of built-in cabinetry anchors the equally spacious family room.

One primary suite has an en suite with a shower and decorative beadboard accents. The other primary bedrooms feature a bay window, plantation shutters and a walk-in closet with custom built-ins. The adjacent office has a wet bar and custom cabinetry, including a built-in desk with a honed granite surface.

Granite slab counters and granite backsplashes wrap around the spacious kitchen. Updated appliances include a KitchenAid dishwasher and refrigerator, a JennAir range, and a GE microwave. The dining area has a sliding door access to the upper deck.

The sophisticated La Foret French restaurant is just down the street as well as the New Almaden Community Center, where neighbors enjoy year-round activities. 

Additional features include a two-car detached garage, a shed/private studio, gated driveway and front walkway entries, updated dimmer switches, indoor laundry, a Ring security system, and lots of storage.

Enjoy the nearby New Almaden Community Club, a nonprofit neighborhood group that hosts community events year-round, from progressive dinner and Fourth of July barbecues to trick-or-treating and a Christmas potluck, caroling, and visit from Santa. Gather with neighbors and feel the warmth of this community rich in local history and surrounded by the natural beauty of the more than 4,100 acres of parkland, including the Capitancillos Ridge.
