  • Classic, Stylish Elegance with Resort Amenities



    Set behind a gated entrance on beautifully landscaped grounds, this magnificent residence portrays timeless architecture and classic style. Brick walkways create an inviting introduction to the home, which is centrally positioned on the lot allowing for views from every room. Two redwood groves offer a quiet meditative setting, while imported boulders from the island of Crete lend an extra organic element to the lushly planted gardens. The two-story home is beautifully appointed for sophisticated living. Elegant formal rooms extend off the foyer, which also adjoins a large bar area perfect for caterers and entertaining. A warm and inviting family room is ideal for media enjoyment, as a library, or as a work-from-home space, if needed. The kitchen is a chef’s dream and finished like the entertainment bar with solid onyx counters which are up-lit on the island for a dazzling evening display.

    There are 4 spacious bedrooms in the main residence, including the primary suite on the main level and an adjacent secondary suite, plus two large upstairs bedrooms which could also be used as an office. Adding to the accommodations is a large, detached guest house with full kitchen and bath, and a detached 3-car garage with adjoining carport. 

    Befitting a property of such magnitude, the rear grounds present a wonderful setting for relaxing, fitness, and fresh-air enjoyment with a pool and spa, large sport court, and heated cabana with outdoor kitchen, bar seating, and media entertainment. All of this, plus a central location that puts downtown conveniences in Menlo Park or Redwood City close-at-hand.
