Exceptional Whole-Home Remodel for 5-Star Living
On one of Menlo Park’s premier streets, this stunning home presents three levels of absolute luxury with a blend of traditional exterior styling, chic sophistication inside, and five-star resort-like grounds. Completely transformed in 2016 with a whole-home remodel inside and out, the home is a tour de force itself, but it is the rear grounds that are the pièce de résistance. Here, every inch is devoted to wellness, entertaining, and recreation. A stunning pool and spa beside ipe decking and synthetic lawn are a focal point, along with the architecturally structured cabana that takes center stage for outdoor living. Designed with full roof and side enclosures when needed, this venue has ample space for lounging, dining, media enjoyment, and entertaining. Overhead heating and lighting, a tucked-away shower, and even a clothes dryer are thoughtful additions, plus there is an outdoor kitchen just off the great room.
Inside, the whole-home remodel boasts perfectly hued European white oak floors throughout, exceptional modern lighting fixtures, wallcoverings and custom window coverings that add unique designer flair. Fireplaces were transformed in the living room and family room into sleek focal points, steel frame European doors and windows in focal point areas, and every surface beautifully updated to quartz, Calacatta marble, and an array of unique tiles. Richly hued colors accent some walls, nowhere more striking than in the lower-level media room with refreshment bar and multimedia sound system that even includes play of vinyl records.

The kitchen is picture-perfect with white perimeter cabinetry topped in quartz and penny tile backsplashes. A contrasting island with counter seating showcases a striking slab of honed Calacatta marble, and banquette seating beneath a window defines a lovely spot for casual dining. Viking and Sub-Zero appliances are top-of-the-line.

There are 6 spacious bedrooms in the home beginning with one on the main level that includes custom cabinetry for office needs. A bedroom on the lower level with Murphy bed is designed for fitness with mirrored wall panels and adjacent bath. Upstairs, the primary suite unfolds beyond double doors with private balcony, couture closet, and spa-inspired bath. Two additional bedrooms each have direct access to a bath plus one bedroom is served by a hallway bath.

Located in the heart of central Menlo Park, less than one mile to downtown shops and restaurants, this home has everything needed for today with work-from-home, fitness, and recreation built right in – plus access to excellent Menlo Park schools. Welcome home!
