This exceptional estate is a masterpiece of East Coast-influenced architecture with classic shuttered windows and steeply pitched rooflines. Built in 2008 by renowned builder Joe Comartin, Woodlane Properties, the home spans three levels with more than 10,500 square feet of absolute luxury. Signature construction details abound, including multiple Rumford-style fireplaces, gorgeous hardwood floors, some in a herringbone pattern, and perfectly selected lighting with art in mind. Varied ceiling architecture and finely crafted millwork accentuate the feeling of a Hamptons home, while discreetly integrated technology behind the scenes fulfills the most contemporary expectations for Silicon Valley living.
The intelligently designed floor plan lends itself equally well to relaxed daily living and grand-scale entertaining, with a particular focus on indoor/outdoor living. Banks of tall windows and French doors in numerous rooms open to the rear grounds and a focal point of the home – the stunning heated loggia framed by architectural columns with a conical roof sheltering a fireplace, barbecue center, and exceptional space for outdoor living and dining. Serving it all is a masterful kitchen finished in Carrara marble and a suite of high-end appliances for the most demanding chef. Beyond the family room, added entertainment space is found on the lower level with a tremendous recreation room and cinema-quality theatre for movie nights at home.
Personal accommodations comprise 6 bedrooms, each with en suite bath, a library, dedicated office, and fitness center with its own bath. A main-level suite is ideal for an au pair and the upstairs primary suite is convenient to four additional suites for family members. Completing the estate is a pool and spa in a very private setting with perfectly manicured grounds and absolute privacy on almost one acre – all just minutes from upscale shopping and dining in downtown Menlo Park, Stanford University, and excellent Menlo Park and Atherton schools.
