Just Completed Modern Design

Located in Atherton

This just-completed home by Pinnacle Group is a masterful expression of modern design with architecture by Farro Essalat, AIA. Although in excess of 18,000 square feet, the main residence is thoughtfully arranged with rooms in scaled proportion, emanating from a central plane. Introducing this, and beginning outside, is a linear reflecting pond that traverses through the design culminating on the rear grounds. This focal point adds a soothing Feng Shui element to the crisp, clean lines of the architecture. Tremendous walls of glass provide a seamless connection to the outdoor venues, walls are carefully crafted with reveals in lieu of moldings, and floors are perfectly finished in patterns of white oak and limestone. Throughout, German lighting fixtures stand alone as works of art and exemplify the modern ambiance.

Spanning three levels, every amenity needed for a lifestyle of luxury and convenience is found within, such as three kitchens, a wine cellar with private dining room, full bar, and customized theatre. Personal accommodations of 7 bedrooms, each with en suite bath, elevator access to all three levels, plus a separate one-bedroom guest house and multi-room pool house, offer incredible accommodations for families of all sizes and generations. The gated grounds of more than 2.5 acres are equally impressive with contemporary gardens, plus a pool and spa – and all out of view from the street for the utmost in privacy.
