The Bay Area can be a fast-paced place – from the bustling city of San Francisco to the start-up culture of Silicon Valley. For many, this is the appeal of living here. Even if you enjoy living a cultured, vibrant life surrounded by the leaders of innovation, many prefer to have their home be a place of relaxation.
This week’s open home allows for exactly that – blending the convenience of being located merely 10 minutes from Stanford, but set on a quiet 2.5+/- acres in the Westridge neighborhood of Portola Valley.
Held open by Ellen Ashley of the Alain Pinel Realtors Woodside office, this 4bd/3.5ba home is unique in both location and styling. The exterior, with custom cedar shake shingles, a standing seam metal roof, and a sprawling lawn, compliments the surrounding grounds.
The inside blends contemporary and luxury styling, having been extensively remodeled over the past 5 years with open spaces, soaring ceilings, and tall windows. A brilliant use of levels in this architecturally stunning home create an airy ambiance throughout the common areas – featuring a beautiful entry way (with an impressive mahogany door), a living room perfect for entertaining (stainless steel bar and opaque glass cabinets), a family room (with gas stainless steel fireplace), and an elegant, and functional gourmet kitchen (featuring blue-eye granite countertops).
If the open spaces of the interior are not enough for your entertaining purposes – the home also features two decks – one of which has a 2-way glass fireplace.
