Dear fellow enthusiasts,

Ruby Hill custom-built home specifications:
Ruby Hill is a gate-guarded community in the beautiful city of Pleasanton. At the heart of Ruby Hill is an 18-hole Jack Nicholas-designed private golf course in which along the course is situated the backyard of homes. The area has excellent schools and Ruby Hill boasts the highest-percentage of custom homes to tract for any golf course community in Northern California. Pleasanton is a relatively short distance from many parts of the Bay Area, including Mountain View (25 miles), San Jose (20 miles), and San Francisco (40 miles).


The home is less than two years old, as it was completed back on September 2006. Theater, Lobby, Gameroom, A/V room, Gym, and Playroom, were completed on June 2008. Only two adults and a one year old infant resided here, so most rooms have been unoccupied and unused.
