To view Video Tour, please contact Mary or Brent for password then click here.

Rare is a home such as this in Atherton – one with timeless character from its circa 1930s heritage, combined with 21st century luxury from a masterful renovation. And, with grounds comprising two separate parcels totaling 3.5 acres, the setting is equally magnificent. A profusion of formal gardens and lawn, splashes of color, heritage oaks and redwoods add layers of privacy and define exceptional venues for hosting grand outdoor gatherings. The spacious and flowing main residence was originally designed by Paul Williams, renowned as the “architect to the stars” for his many homes built for celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and Lucille Ball. The main home spans over 10,000 square feet, all impeccably restored in 2007 with classic design elements – extensive millwork, perfectly selected lighting, hand-painted artistry and fine hardwood floors. Beyond the traditional formal rooms, the accommodations include a music room, a stunning sunroom, a library, family room and of course, a kitchen worthy of a professional chef. Personal quarters are many with a total of 6 bedrooms, including a lavish master suite and the ideal arrangement for staff, plus a separate guesthouse added in 2007. Behind the scenes, technology manages everything from sound to lighting, climate and security.All around, the impressive grounds invite outdoor living with heated terraces, a 66-foot long pool, a barbecue kitchen and sun-swept lawns ready to host family or philanthropic events. Located in the heart of central Atherton – the most expensive zip-code in America per Forbes magazine, this sought-after destination is minutes to Stanford University, Silicon Valley tech and venture capital centers, as well as two international airports.
