  • Blue Oaks Villa in Full Bloom




    Crafted in the style of a well-aged Italian chateau, this home is located in prestigious Blue Oaks, an enclave of estate homes surrounded by 285 acres of open space and trails. Built in 2002, the home’s premier location on approximately 1.77 acres is set back from the road in complete privacy, entered down a long driveway culminating at a motor court with ample parking. Befitting the Italian ambiance with its ivy-covered stone walls and red-tiled roof, the home is introduced by an ivy-covered arbor and tiled walkway. Massive reclaimed double doors with iron hardware open to the foyer where terra cotta tile floors and beamed and wood-paneled vaulted ceilings are introduced. Glass doors and windows, all with metal divided panes fill the home with natural light and open to the expansive terraces surrounding the home. Formal rooms are designed for indoor/outdoor living and grand entertaining, all served by a tremendous kitchen, with 20-foot-plus ceilings, and a casual dining area set within the two-story tower, with stone walls and square clerestory windows.  

    The floor plan spans primarily one level with short sets of stairs defining various wings and a central window-lined tower showcasing a main staircase to the upper level, which comprises a lovely guest suite with private terrace. There are 5 bedrooms, one configured as a fitness center, 3 full baths, and 2 half-baths. In addition, there are multiple offices, perfect for today’s needs, including an executive office next to the primary suite, plus the garage conversion into a 2-room office suite, with a private outside entrance and a billiards room.

    Continuing outside, exceptional amenities include a pool, separate spa, an ivy-covered arbor above a dining terrace, plus a poolside gazebo and multiple entertainment decks and level yards for play and recreation. All around, tranquility unfolds with miles of hiking trails just outside your door. Topping it all off is the home’s proximity to excellent Portola Valley public schools and The Priory, plus restaurants, tennis and swim clubs, all within 15 minutes of the Stanford Shopping Center.
