The Tobin Clark Estate - Magnificent Hillsborough Mansion

Located in Hillsborough

Perhaps once in a lifetime…

There occurs an extremely rare opportunity…

To acquire a most extraordinary Architectural Masterpiece…

Of incomparable scale and grandeur…

At one of the World’s most prestigious addresses…

Such an opportunity has arrived…

A mansion of uncompromising elegance and superb attention to every detail… nestled in the lush green hills of the San Francisco Bay Peninsula, in the exclusive community of Hillsborough.  Designed by renowned architect David Adler, and completed circa 1931 for Mrs. Celia Tobin Clark, a founding member of the Peninsula’s gentry, this gated and very private Mansion offers quality of lifestyle that is unsurpassed.  It is a stately and magnificent example of Cotswold Tudor architecture.

Secluded from view behind classic wrought iron gates, one enters the six acre grounds of this estate via a dramatic cobblestone drive to the large motor court with a spectacular stone fountain centerpiece… creating a grand entrance. Night lighting adds drama and enhances the ambiance of the most elegant galas.

Experience the grace of the harlequin patterned marble floored entry with its exquisite 17th Century paneling.  The refinement of this classic mansion is reflected throughout all three levels which include nine-plus bedrooms, a separate and private VIP suite, staff and office accommodations and a fully modernized catering kitchen.

The scale and charm of the public rooms is breathtaking.  The detail of the ornamental medallion work, particularly notable in the fifty five-foot Grand Music Room with its fifteen-foot high ceiling, soaring leaded glass windows that flood the rooms with sparkling lights, and imported antique parquet-de-Versailles flooring, all emphasize the importance of each detail and nuance… matching fireplaces… triple gold-gilt moldings, and French doors leading to the Grand Terrace.

An architectural masterpiece…

The banquet-sized formal dining room, with adjacent butler’s pantry, leads to the adjoining Loggia and Grand Terrace. The transition from indoors to gardens flows seamlessly throughout the main level.

From the warmth of the antique oak-paneled library to the cozy bar and game areas, each room adds its own importance to the mansion.  A more recent addition is the third level high-tech media center and billiard hall –the Grand Gable Room- with stunning brass overhead illumination, carries on the heritage of excellence and truly blends the finest elements of traditional and contemporary lifestyles.

A few of the additional amenities include exquisitely appointed adjoining master suites, eleven baths, a separate guest apartment, wine vault, exercise room, state of the art systems including sound, lighting, security and intercom throughout.

With vistas of the city lights surrounding San Francisco Bay, the six acre compound offers an idyllic oasis featuring a Grand Terrace, expansive lawns, pool with guest house, formal rose gardens, a statuary garden, waterfall and walkways… all fully lighted and wired for sound.

This extraordinary residence is located within the town of Hillsborough, founded in the late 19th century by San Francisco’s most prominent families.  Drawn by its scenic beauty, they created some of the world’s greatest estates, an irreplaceable testament to an era of architectural greatness, of which precious few remain today. Since then, Hillsborough has become one of the world’s most exclusive enclaves, treasured for its natural setting and relaxed California lifestyle. Yet, it is close to three international airports and in the midst of the world-class financial, technological and cultural centers of San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
