59 James AVE

$6,500,000 59 James Avenue, ATHERTON, CA 94027
This meticulously maintained home presents all the hallmarks of the post-modern architecture that flourished in the mid-century. Throughout the design, formal conventions are sidestepped with traditional appeal, all arranged with extraordinary openness and brilliant natural light. Massive walls of glass highlight numerous rooms, myriad skylights include a cathedral glass ceiling, and French doors provide easy access to the amazing grounds of almost one acre. The overall effect is warm yet bright and ever so inviting with unending views of the flourishing grounds and redwoods. The lushly landscaped yard offers a vast patio with pool, tremendous vegetable garden area, private deck with hot tub, plus a large, separately fenced yard for recreation. On a premier corner lot in sought-after Lindenwood, this home also benefits from access to excellent Menlo Park schools and minutes-away proximity from downtown shopping and Caltrain to San Francisco or Silicon Valley.
