Exuding classic Cape Cod style – from the all-shingled exterior to the coach lanterns and divided pane windows – this remarkable home is a picture of country elegance. Set back on a corner lot of just over one acre on a cul-de-sac street, the home is surrounded by verdant foliage, open meadows, and a level lawn area for play. Sweeping views of the western hills create a wonderful backdrop while decks and numerous patios offer wonderful space from which to enjoy it all. Inside, the home is timeless and traditional with an exceptional floor plan that works well for a variety of lifestyle needs. A tremendous great room at one end of the home is a masterpiece of design that is certain to be the home’s central gathering place. The scale is grand and the amenities are many, including surround sound, built-in office space, an entertainment bar, dedicated dining area, and a fabulous gourmet kitchen. Separate living and dining rooms stand ready for more formal gatherings, plus there is a large recreation room. Five fireplaces in the home enhance the setting, extensive built-ins are as functional as they are beautiful, and even a wine cellar can be found behind leaded-glass doors.
There are 5 spacious bedrooms, all arranged on the upper level and four of them open to a private deck and yard that connects to the main level terrace, spa, and barbecue center. The master suite is a luxurious retreat with reading area, fireplace, built-in media, and all-marble bath. Completing the bedroom wing is a library perfect for home office or study needs. Behind the scenes, amenities like a video doorbell, surveillance cameras, and distributed sound speakers are found. Rounding out the appeal of this exceptional home is its close-in location in the heart of central Portola Valley putting shops and restaurants just minutes away and proximity to acclaimed Portola Valley schools, Sand Hill Road venture capital centers, and Stanford University all close at hand.
