Trulia Property Listing

Completed in 2010, this home in Atherton, California, one of the “most expensive zip codes in America,” is a masterful expression of modern design situated on 2.6 acres of private resort-like grounds with pool, spa, barbecue kitchen, playground and vast stretch of level lawn. Precision craftsmanship showcases the architecture of award-winning firm Swatt Miers.

Throughout the three levels, the pervasive use of extraordinary materials – Honduran mahogany, African walnut, and lighting fixtures that stand alone as pieces of art – establish a rich, meditative tone that works in harmony with the beauty of the setting. Tremendous walls of glass, all with hidden custom shades and many providing cross-ventilation, provide a seamless connection to the outdoors where a heritage oak stands as the focal point around which the home’s L-shaped design was conceived.

The home’s personal accomodations are comprised of 5 bedrooms upstairs, including a divine master suite, plus a main-level suite accessed from the outside – making it ideal for guests or as an office. The design is open and voluminous, accentuated with floating steps, a glass bridge walkway inspired by the Museum of Modern Art, and ceiling lines that connect with cantilevered extensions outdoors. The property also features an attached 3-car garage.

Brent Gullixson and Royce Cablayan have the listing.
