Architecturally dramatic and consummately inviting, this 5-bedroom, 4.5 bath home offers a superior living environment just moments from the best of Menlo Park and Palo Alto. Soaring cathedral and vaulted ceilings enhance the sense of generous, light-filled proportions. Lustrous hardwood flooring and recessed lighting unite the main level, which exhibits the best of relaxed California living with its open flowing design and easy access to the outdoors. A window-lined gallery allows guests to effortlessly move from the grand living room and formal dining room to the rear entertainment patio and secluded grounds. Designed for the inevitable socializing with the chef, the spacious kitchen is ideally positioned from the casual dining area and family room. Here, a fireplace and built-in cabinetry set the stage for comfortable movie nights at home. Bedrooms are arranged over two-levels, providing maximum lifestyle flexibility, highlighted by the romantic upper-level master suite with fireplace. Bordered by a perimeter of redwood trees, the expansive rear grounds enjoy a delightful level of privacy with a level lawn and curving flower beds to further soothe the senses. Completing the appeal of this lovely home is its excellent location, just moments to downtown Menlo Park, Stanford, and top-rated local schools.
