  • Classic Elegance in Central Atherton




    Tucked away at the end of a long, gated driveway with complete privacy from street activity, this home exudes the elegance of a French manor. Timeless appeal begins with a classic slate mansard roof with dormer windows, traditional window shutters, and gracefully arched front entrance. The traditional ambiance continues inside with parquet wood floors, crown moldings, and expansive divided pane windows that fill the home with light. Formal venues invite grand entertaining with a focal-point fireplace, dazzling chandelier, and French doors to the rear terrace and grounds. The kitchen is generous in size and classically appointed with granite-topped custom cabinetry that includes an island with breakfast bar plus a large desk center with space for distance learning or work-from-home needs. A large family room, fully open to the kitchen, features a second fireplace, wet bar, and wall of sliding glass doors to the pool and tennis court. Rounding out the main level is a 5th bedroom, or spacious office, with two built-in workstations plus a Murphy bed and a well-appointed en suite bath, which also serves the main living areas.

    Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms, 3 with en suite bath and one served by a hallway bath. One bedroom is extra-large, one has a built-in desk center, and most bedrooms have built-in drawers. The primary suite has a sitting room, extensive custom wardrobe storage, hidden safe, and luxuriously remodeled en suite marble bath with jetted tub and large shower. New carpet finishes the upstairs hallway and bedrooms.

    Located on approximately 1.2 acres, this home has everything needed for resort living with an updated pool and spa, barbecue center, and a fully fenced tennis court. The vast lawn features raised beds, fruit trees, mature camellias, and oaks – all in a very private, quiet, and secure setting.
