Located in sought-after central Atherton, just one mile from the prestigious Menlo Circus Club, this property offers myriad options for today and the future, including creating one or two grand estates. The property comprises two legal adjoining parcels with a combined lot size of approximately 2.56 level acres. The front parcel of 1.46± acres is where the existing residence is positioned, set far back from the street and gated entrances. This one-level home is bright, light, and well-appointed with potential for use while developing future plans.
The second rear parcel, of just over one acre, comprises the home’s pool, a large art deco pool house, golf practice area, and tremendous stretch of lawn. Adding to the appeal, this lot has a “flag” entrance from a cul-de-sac giving it a private driveway should this lot be developed on its own.
The entire setting is exceptionally private with vast stretches of sun-swept level land, perimeter trees, and mature trees at the front that afford added privacy. Offering an excellent opportunity, this property is just minutes to Stanford University, downtown Menlo Park, and commute routes to Silicon Valley or San Francisco tech centers.
