Grandview Architectural

City: Saratoga
Year: 2002
Project Manager: Steve Montez

Since the late sixties, art collector, Donald Head, has invested in the 25-acre rehabilitation of the old and neglected Pike Estate in Saratoga.  Today, Old Grandview Ranch is also known as Hearst Castle North.  Set in the wooded foothills of Saratoga, Dr. Head has developed a French Renaissance showcase estate that includes a rejuvenated 22-room mansion, two art galleries, a studio, two swimming pools, a pool house, gardens and orchards.  Walton & Sons Masonry, Inc. set granite and marble stone for the landscape and buildings on the estate.


Architectural:  Set white marble stone with veining with polished and flamed finishes, all in the Loggia, for ceiling cladding, pilasters, walls, fluted columns and entablatures.  Cut 4x4x16 concrete block down to 4×12 and laid it as veneer for the art gallery in 1998.  It was later faux painted to match the brick on the residence.
