Tuscan Villa in the Prestigious, Menlo Park
Elegance and quality craftsmanship radiate from all corners of this newly constructed,
Tuscan Villa in the prestigious, Menlo Park.
Mature trees shade the long, private drive leading up to the thoughtfully-designed home set within a beautifully landscaped, 29,185 sq ft gated flag lot. From warm wood floors and arched doorways to classic balconies and sparkling en-suites, this 6 bedroom, 7.5 bathroom with a spacious, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment provides that embellished interior you’ve been looking for in a quiet, friendly neighborhood.
A foyer with soaring ceilings invites you to explore the impressive great room where natural light pours in through French doors, illuminating the quality finishes while offering breathtaking views of the sprawling backyard oasis. Continue into a well-equipped kitchen suitable for any aspiring chef. Make use of the stainless steel appliances and convenient features including quartzite countertops, a massive pantry, a breakfast area, and plenty of storage within the custom, Alder cabinetry. Enjoy a quick bite at the expansive island and sophisticated meals in the formal dining area set between the living room and family room. Down the hall, you’ll find an entry-level suite offering your guests plenty of privacy and a sunny office—both with glass doors opening to the patio.
Past the stylish powder room decorated with vibrant mosaic tiles and the mud room opening to the 3-car garage, a wrought-iron banister leads to the four upstairs bedrooms. Vaulted ceilings and balconies elevate these spacious rooms while pristine en-suites add to the home’s unbelievable luxury. In the romantic owner’s suite, French doors allow a fresh breeze to filter throughout the room, and with two en-suites and a pair of walk-in closets, you’ll never be short on storage or privacy!
From the second level, you’ll also have access to a charming apartment set over the garage with a fully-equipped kitchen, living room, full bathroom, its own separate entrance, and a dedicated parking spot. This truly is the ideal spot for anything from au pair quarters or an in-law suite to a renter’s unit.
You’ll only be more impressed by the amount of space this home offers when you head down to the 2,000 sq ft lower level. Here, the possibilities are endless! Whether you’re wanting a game room, a home theatre, a gym, or even a music studio, this spacious level with two additional rooms set away by barn doors can make it happen!
Throughout the residence, classic glass doors grant access to the wide stone patio. Traverse the manicured lawn to admire the Italian-influenced landscaping dotted with olive trees, lavender, and rosemary, or play a quick game of basketball on your own personal court. Plant a variety of delicious fruits and vegetables in the raised garden beds and let your imagination run wild with the open space across the patio. Perhaps an outdoor kitchen or a vineyard will complete this backyard retreat.
When you want to venture past your idyllic oasis, you’re a short stroll from Menlo Park’s downtown shopping and dining area and all three award-winning Menlo schools plus two excellent schools—Menlo School and Sacred Heart. Privacy and tranquility have never looked so good together.
