Levi Strauss Heirs List Historic Estate for Almost $60 Million
Heirs of American entrepreneurial legend Levi Strauss recently listed their charming Silicon Valley estate for $59.5 million. The Pine Brook Estate sits on over 12 acres of historic beauty in the heart of Atherton, California, and was the family’s summer country retreat and farm for the last 70 years.
The main house proudly boasts the classical Tudor style of its time, surrounded by lush landscaping and a canopy of shade trees, and encompasses more than 11,000 square feet utilizing both indoor and outdoor living. A large swimming pool, pool house with a bar, and a tennis court complement the outdoor living amenities.
Additionally, a 6,500 square-foot guest home designed by Gardner Daily also resides on the property. The land itself however, is believed to be the greatest asset of Pine Brook by Zackary Wright, the senior vice president of Christie’s International Real Estate.
“Pine Brook occupies one of the largest single tracts of land in the Town of Atherton, making it a rare offering indeed,” says Wright. “The property is rare because it has been in private hands for over a century; the availability of such a vast, unspoiled holding in exclusive Atherton is truly the opportunity of a lifetime.”
