European Country Estate in Exclusive Allied Arts

Don’t miss out on this custom-built home that blends luxury and charm in one of Menlo Park’s most highly sought-after neighborhoods. The home was newly constructed from the ground up in 2013 by Tony Shadle, who has built numerous Mid-Peninsula homes. This unique tri-level residence features a light-filled spacious floor plan with 5 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and expansive living space—situated perfectly on a desirable private lot just minutes from the area’s acclaimed amenities.

Affluent Living and Entertaining

Arriving at 240 Princeton Road, you’re immediately drawn to its exterior appeal and distinct architecture, welcomed by lush landscaping and a stone walkway. Entering the foyer on the main level, you’re greeted by walnut wood flooring that stretches you past a formal living room with a stone fireplace and into the sprawling gourmet kitchen featuring custom built-in cabinets, an oversized island bar, and high-end appliances. The adjacent dining area and separate family room create an open “great room” feel, ideal for family gatherings and entertaining. An elegant wood staircase leads to the lower-level — a completely built-out basement with large bonus room, wine cellar/full bar, and a private guest bedroom and bathroom. Upstairs, the master suite overlooks the backyard’s natural beauty, while three additional bedrooms and two bathrooms provide comfortable living space for the entire family. Expansive view windows, reclaimed wood, artisan painting, and fine fixtures are just a few of the details that showcase the high-quality craftsmanship, which is carried throughout the entire home. The main living area flows seamlessly through French doors to a covered veranda and beautiful stone patio with built-in barbecue and bar for delighting guests—or just relaxing amid the backyard serenity. A detached garage set back on the property has been converted to a multipurpose/exercise room, offering additional flex space as desired. This beautiful home offers a unique yet timeless appeal for the most discerning buyers.
