Freshly Updated Timeless Grandeur in Lindenwood
In the heart of Lindenwood, this expansive home exudes timeless elegance, spanning three levels of architectural sophistication and meticulous attention to detail. Upon entry, a Mediterranean romance unfolds with a grand foyer finished in slate tile and mosaic keystones, hand-hewn hickory floors beyond, plaster walls, and a cascading staircase beneath a domed stained glass ceiling. Recent updates have enhanced its style, showcasing newly painted interiors, including some millwork and cabinetry, along with new lighting, infusing the home with a brighter, lighter, and more transitional style. Towering ceilings in many rooms amplify the sense of volume, while French doors effortlessly open from nearly every room, revealing enchanting balconies or terraces.

The formal living room boasts a focal point gas fireplace with a manorial carved stone mantelpiece, and the formal dining room dazzles with a new chandelier. A fully paneled cherry library/office offers an intimate retreat, complete with integrated banquette seating, a gas-log fireplace, and a coffered ceiling.

The gourmet kitchen provides the epitome of culinary sophistication, with newly painted cabinetry topped in granite slab beneath a barrel-vaulted ceiling. High-end appliances by Viking, Gaggenau, and Sub-Zero cater to the discerning chef, and a separate breakfast room awaits casual meals along with a convenient desk center. The family room, fully open to the kitchen, boasts a wall of newly painted cabinetry, a towering ceiling with exposed beams, and three sets of French doors leading to the rear grounds and pool.

The primary suite on the main level is a sanctuary of luxury, featuring a wet bar, fireplace, private terrace, and a fully customized walk-in closet with stacking washer and dryer. The all-marble en suite bath pampers with a heated floor, operable skylight, separate vanities, claw-foot tub, steam shower, and a private commode room. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, each with a balcony, two with ensuite baths, and two with shared bath. Two additional lower-level bedrooms, one ideal for an au pair and the other customized as a fitness center, provide versatile living options, each with direct access to a shared bath. Rounding out the lower level is a dedicated home theatre, customized wine cellar, as well as an additional full bath.

The park-like grounds of nearly one acre are equally beautiful, with three gated entrances, including a circular driveway. A sparkling pool and spa highlight the level grounds of approximately 40,600 square feet, along with a guest house featuring a kitchenette and bath, perfect for additional living space, a remote-work office, or a venue for poolside entertaining. With its prime Lindenwood address, this home also provides access to excellent Menlo Park schools.
