Set behind a gated entrance on beautifully landscaped grounds of more than two acres, this magnificent residence portrays timeless architecture and classic style. English gardens and limestone walkways create an inviting introduction to the home, which spans two levels all beautifully appointed with interior finishes and colors that exude chic, sophisticated living. Elegant formal rooms include a grand two-story foyer with a stunning view over the incredible pool deck and extensive lawn, a coved ceiling living room bathed in light from three sides, a wainscoted dining room with real candle chandelier, a finely tailored study (with its own terrace), and a formal powder room. These are located just off the central family room and a magnificent chef’s kitchen. There are 5 spacious bedrooms, each with en suite bath and all perfectly arranged for a variety of lifestyle needs with two suites on the main level and three upstairs, including a lavish master suite.
Premier appointments include limestone floors in the two-story foyer and adjoining powder room and fine hardwood floors in every other room. Freshly painted rooms on the main level await personal belongings of any style, crown moldings add timeless appeal, and silk wall coverings in some rooms are classically luxe.
Befitting a property of such magnitude, the rear grounds present a spectacular setting for relaxing or entertaining at any level. With a flat lawn as far as the eye can see, an 80-foot pool with spa, and extensive stone terraces with Rumford fireplace, heated loggia, built-in outdoor kitchen center, and separate heated pavilion for poolside lounging. A detached 3-car garage includes one bay currently customized as a gym with kitchenette and full bath providing added living space or the perfect fitness center.
This very special property also benefits from two legal parcels totaling more than two acres and each with its own private gated driveway allowing for the potential of an additional home to be built. This premier location is in central Atherton surrounded by many estate properties and all just two miles from downtown shopping and dining in Menlo Park or the many entertainment options of downtown Redwood City.
