  • Atherton Estate on 3.17 Acres with Extraordinary Grounds




    THIS TRULY EXCEPTIONAL PROPERTY IS ONE OF ATHERTON’S FINEST ESTATES with an unparalleled combination of grandeur, luxury, and timeless appeal. Set on an expansive 3.17-acre level lot, the estate is enveloped by breathtaking gardens established with specimen plantings at every turn adding a unique and awe-inspiring dimension.

    The entire property was artfully rebuilt within the main structure in 2001 into a remarkable living experience with discerning taste. Over $22 million, in today’s currency, was spent to completely rebuild and upgrade the home. Every detail exudes a sense of elegance and luxury yet is purposely designed to create a welcoming ambiance that avoids feeling overly formal. Great consideration was given to creating multiple strong axes that connect not only one room to another but also to the grounds and through the center courtyard that connects the rooms on all four sides. The seamless blend of sophistication and warmth throughout ensures that moments spent here are cherished, whether hosting lavish gatherings or enjoying intimate daily activities with friends and family.

    The property features 17,510 total square feet which includes a two-story main residence, attached one bedroom apartment and studio/fitness room, a detached guesthouse, two attached garages, a wine cellar, and multiple storage areas. In addition, the main home was built around a highly unique approximately 2,140 square foot Central Courtyard, perfect for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The kitchen family room opens directly onto the courtyard as well as onto the formal and family entertaining patios. Further enhancing the living experience is a generous guest house with full kitchen that serves as both a private retreat and a wonderful venue for entertaining poolside. An exercise studio and 1-bedroom apartment offer versatile living spaces, accommodating multi-generational living arrangements or providing room for staff, offices, and fitness.

    The enchanting outdoor oasis beckons with established greenery, vibrant blooms, rare plantings and trees, and serene pathways meandering through the grounds. A large sparkling pool and spa, newly resurfaced tennis court, and golf practice area await relaxation and recreation. This property also boasts coveted amenities such as a beautiful sommelier-worthy 5,000-bottle wine cellar and oversized garages with parking for up to five cars. An unparalleled lifestyle for the best of timeless elegance and luxury living in the country’s most highly ranked city.
