Breathtaking views are just the beginning of what you will experience when visiting what is known as The Castle of Alamo. Privacy, serenity and open space add to the character of this majestic estate. Marvel at the stunning sunrise and sunset vistas.
Many of the materials used to build the home were recycled from various places around the region, making it truly one of a kind. The home was constructed in 1988 with over 120,000 used bricks many of which were found, and nearly forgotten, in an old warehouse in downtown Oakland. All of the doors in the home were custom made for their particular spot due to the creative brickwork throughout the home. All of the door hinges and handles were individually fabricated on site from steel plate.
Distinctive features at every turn include the crafted brick walls, an invisible waterfall feature, and a staircase made of salvaged church pews. Unique roof rafters protruding from under the eaves outside were individually hand-carved into interesting faces, animals and objects.
Enjoy touches of whimsy around every corner… it’s like living in your own piece of art!
