  • Sold
  • Grand Tudor Estate on 2.72 Acres



    On the market for the first time in over 50 years, this prestigious west Atherton property was designed in 1929 by renowned architect, Henry Higby Gutternson. Known as Squirlwood, the home was built as a wedding gift for the daughter of an early Atherton family who resided on an adjacent Atherton Avenue parcel. A guest at the wedding, John McLaren, acclaimed landscape designer of Golden Gate Park, provided his services as a gift to create the surrounding gardens on 2.7 acres. The property stands today with all of its original majestic splendor and country ambiance. The original Tudor residence makes a grand first impression with leaded glass windows, half-timber accents, detailed millwork, and oak floors. Inside, the home’s vast dimensions of over 7,000 square feet span two levels plus a partial basement and tremendous attic space. There are 8 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. As grand as the residence is, the land is truly remarkable with surprises that unfold beyond the home. A sparkling pool is tucked away beyond vast level lawn, a fenced garden is meant for vegetables and flowers, and all around heritage oaks and colorful blossoms dot the grounds. As well, a brick terrace of 1,200 square feet stands ready for entertaining on a grand scale. This incredible property is a remarkable opportunity at one of the most sought-after destinations in the country for exclusivity, privacy, and estate living.
