One-of-a-Kind in Atherton

One-of-a-Kind in Atherton - A Glass House with Remarkable Views

Located in Atherton

Just completed, this engineering and architectural masterpiece is a one-of-a-kind residence made from the highest level of architectural formed concrete, glass, and steel. The home comprises two “L” shaped forms that balance on top of one another, creating courts and overhangs that define the indoor and outdoor spaces with bridges and two floating cantilevers, each spanning 23 feet. Designed as much for the terrain as for privacy, the walls facing the street are primarily solid with strategically placed glass, allowing natural light to brighten the space. On the sides away from the street, the walls are made entirely of glass, offering maximum enjoyment of the far-reaching views out to the San Francisco skyline.

While exceeding 16,000 total square feet, this property works equally well for one as it does for a large family. Three levels offer the utmost in privacy, yet flow together in an open design of intersections and vertical connections that cross and loop into distinct living spaces. There is a home theatre, a tremendous recreation room, myriad options for working-at-home, and an ideal arrangement of bedrooms for families. Additionally, two separate buildings, each with a full kitchen, provide flexible accommodations for guests, staff, fitness, and/or poolside entertaining needs.

Architectural lighting is a signature of the home, beginning with a dazzling display from perforations in the front canopy to the interior reveals atop walls and the purposefully placed uplighting beneath the floating stairs. Modern chandeliers custom-made in Milan seamlessly integrate with the steel and glass ceilings. Behind the scenes, everything needed for comfort and convenience is found with Control4 whole-home automation while solar panels for electricity and multiple car charging stations enhance the home’s environmental stewardship.
