Prime West Atherton Spectacular Estate
Experience luxury living at its best in the coveted Menlo Circus Club area. Built in 2012, this is a true masterpiece inspired by the grand villas of Urbino, Italy and built with an exceptional array of imported materials, from antique French roof tiles to never-before-seen exterior stone sourced from an Israeli quarry. Prepare to be enchanted at every turn as the opulent finishes and design flourishes reveal themselves – hand-scraped ceiling beams, lustrous walnut and limestone floors, and hand-plastered walls throughout. Every detail has been meticulously crafted across three levels, all serviced by elevator. Ceilings showcase architectural details like groin and barrel vaults and even a stone quatrefoil in the grand entrance where a hand-painted mural, inspired by the Tree of Life, is a museum quality floor-to-ceiling focal point.

Formal living and dining rooms are scaled for grand entertaining, a paneled library is an executive’s retreat, and the kitchen and family room ensemble is beyond compare. Continue entertaining on the lower level while enjoying an unparalleled wine vault and tasting room, a cinema-quality theatre, and spacious lounge complete with rare marble and walnut bar. Begin and end each day in the sumptuous primary suite where a coffee/juice bar is built right in, a private terrace offers fresh-air enjoyment, and the Calacatta Oro marble bath presents a spa experience complete with oversized steam shower and heated floors. Three additional bedroom suites are just down the hall and perfect for family members, while a bedroom suite on both the main and lower level is ideal for an au pair or additional office space for work-from-home needs. Guests will be comfortably accommodated in their own private quarters on the rear grounds complete with full kitchen. Adding the finishing touch, health and fitness needs are catered to in a well-equipped fitness center.

Behind the scenes, technology abounds with Creston home automation, programmable lighting, distributed audio, and security and surveillance one would expect for a home of this magnitude. Outdoor spaces are equally compelling with a sparkling saltwater pool and spa, soothing sounds of waterfalls, barbecue kitchen with Italian pizza oven, and numerous terraces for lounging and dining – all contributing to a sense of serenity and peace for health and well-being. Heritage olive trees, renowned for peace, wisdom, and prosperity, envelope the manicured grounds of approximately one acre of absolute privacy. Enduring luxury, timeless elegance, and modern comforts.
