This hidden jewel situated on 1.55 acres barely discernible from the street & positioned across from the esteemed Menlo Circus Club, is one of Atherton's most exceptional estates. The home has undergone a transformation by its current owners. While the outside symmetry & classic allure endure, it has evolved into a place of chic sophistication, showcasing a soft neutral palette complemented by American cherry & light oak floors. Every room is light & bright w/exquisite subtle appointments, recessed lighting, extensive custom built-ins, & even moldings designed to hang fine art in lieu of attaching to the wall. A hallmark of this residence is a commitment to media needs with both visible and concealed screens. Another defining signature of this property is its capability to host significant personal, professional, & philanthropic events. Within the main home, two kitchens facilitate seamless catering and/or a personal chef. One bay of the four-car garage has been converted into a versatile office and/or caterer's space, complete with an array of appliances & ample space for event management or a property manager's daily operations. The main residence has 5-bedrooms, 1-bedroom guest house and a detached office/studio. A Cummins 150kW diesel generator, & a well for irrigation.
