Luginsland is a very special home located in Stockton, California. The architectural elements have been very carefully selected from some of the finest craftsmen in the world. Real slate roof from northern China. Driveway is tumbled travertine marble from southern Spain. Stone balustrades and detail work is from Haddonstone in England. Pediment over front door was hand carved in limestone in central China by China's Master Carver who did all the venues for the Beijing Olympics.

Luginsland (literal translation is "with a country view"), designed by reknowned architect, the late John Colm of San Francisco, was built in 1992. Surrounded 270 degrees by championship Robert Trent Jones golf links, Brookside Country Club, the 5175 square foot estate home is designed in early Georgian style (from a period around 1685) and incorporates objects d' art from around the Globe, much as the marauders of 17th century England would have done. Antique doors inside and out from the Castellon area north of Valencia, Spain. Exterior lighting from Italy, stonework from England, Brazil, China, Malaysia, Mexico, and Indonesia. Hardwood floors from Burma, fireplaces from Mexico and France.

The owner, a businessman in Stockton, has travelled worldwide and brought together elements of dinstinction, both decorative and architectural.

One enters history at the front doors, hand-carved "in or around the year 1650". The doors were traced through the Catholic church in Valencia, and belonged to a family in Castellon de la Plana, north of Valencia, Spain. Four meters in height, 3 inches thick, they are made from high elevation pine from the Pyrenees Mountains of northern Spain. They were found during a demolition of the estate in Castellon in 1990, and were restored by artisano, 90 year old Senor Antonio Querrol. These doors were Sr. Querrol's final project before departing.

The home has 5 bedrooms and 4-1/2 baths, with 3-car carriage house (garage). Gutters and all flashing are copper. The slate roof was installed by 5th generation German roofer, Raymond Kroeck, and all ceremonial activities were carried out during the roofs installation. Herr Kroeck signed his work, and the owner pounded the official final ceremonial final slate on the roof's crest.
