Atherton | 119 Selby Lane

Presenting a modern interpretation of an East Coast farmhouse, this stunning home has been renovated from top to bottom with extraordinary style. Inside and out, the craftsmanship and design are unmatched with impeccable details at every turn. The architecture is timeless and sophisticated with Fleetwood glass doors in many rooms for a completely seamless and unimpeded connection to the outdoors. Shiplap-paneled walls, gorgeous hardwood floors, and a stylish array of natural stones and tiles unify the entire home, which spans two levels, including distinctly private upstairs wings.

There are 5 bedrooms plus a 2-bedroom guest house with full kitchen. An executive office, library, craft room, recreation room, and fitness center (or bedroom) are additional venues incorporated into this thoughtful design. Equally impressive are the fully landscaped grounds with everything needed for indoor/outdoor living, including a pool and spa, bocce court, and barbecue kitchen. Added touches for play include a customized treehouse with suspension bridge and an inground trampoline, while gardening enthusiasts will revel at the Corten steel vegetable beds, fruit trees, and chicken coop. Native grasses and cobblestone paths tie it all together on approximately one acre.

Remarkable in its beauty and incredible livability – in sought-after central Atherton midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley – this is the ultimate family or executive retreat.
