Menlo Park house description

This home is a wonderful example of luxurious living in a relaxed atmosphere. Surrounded on all sides by beautiful garden and outdoor dining areas, French doors bring the outdoors in! The pool and hot tub in the rear of the property have a tropical feel complete with waterfall. You will think you are in a Hawaiian resort, especially if you decide to take advantage of sitting out around the firepit! The lavish furnishings, draperies, and fabrics give this an old-world feel without the stuffiness and formality. The floor plan flows nicely making entertaining easy and comfortable.
The gourmet kitchen, complete with professional Viking range and Sub-Zero refrigerator, and adjoining dining room with fireplace and intimate lighting, allows for wonderful family meals or adult entertaining.
A conviently located laundry room/pantry off the kitchen is stocked with cookbooks for your use and enjoyment.
The fireplaced living room with flat screen tv opens to another small eating space, perfect for cocktails and dinner for four or viewing the football or baseball game!
There are two powder rooms on the main level along with a full bath in the downstairs master. The upstairs bedrooms are large and well equipped with good lighting, flat screen TV's, access to private baths, and lots of natural light. Children will appreciate relaxing on the sofa to watch their favorite movie in the middle upstairs bedroom.
The enormous master bedroom opens to the outdoor pool area and features a king bed, huge lighted closets, and an adjacent marble and granite bath with soaking tub and glassed shower large enough for two!
Walking in this neighborhood is a treat- with winding country-like roads and examples of unique architecture, both old and new. You are a short walk to downtown if you care to experience the many restaurants, movies, and shops.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: My husband and I decided to purchase this property because we wanted privacy and a quiet setting off the beaten path. Although we are minutes from the center of town, our home is a haven in the midst of hundreds of flowering plants, hummingbirds, a waterfall, and secluded garden areas perfect for reading, relaxing, or entertaining. We love to entertain, so this home is perfect for gatherings of all sizes for family and friends and we have certainly put this to the test.

                  Why the Owner Chose Menlo Park:
                  Menlo Park is a wonderful town adjacent to Palo Alto, which was our home for 25 years, but there is more land available here. The area feels like a country lane, perfect for walking the dog or just strolling through the neighborhood. We are 30 minutes from San Francisco, Half Moon Bay, and San Jose. Three major airports are within 25 minutes. The weather is perfect for 6-8 months of the year and at least 20 degrees warmer in summer than San Francisco or the coast.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Proximity to Stanford University, hospital and shopping center
