Experience a blend of modern and timeless charm in this exquisite creation by Young & Borlik in the charming Fair Oaks enclave of Menlo Park. This residence radiates an unmistakable air of pride in ownership. The hallmark of this home lies in its masterful craftsmanship, evident in every carefully honed finish and detail. Stepping across the threshold, the foyer welcomes you into a luminous living space graced by soaring 9-foot +- ceilings. This captivating introduction sets the stage for an expansive main-level layout that seamlessly intertwines the dining room, family room, and an exquisitely sunlit kitchen, imbued with radiance from skylights, a large bi-folding back door, and ample kitchen windows.

A thoughtfully placed powder room, a fourth bedroom en-suite, and a conveniently situated laundry room unveil themselves on this level. A culinary enthusiast’s dream, the splendid chef’s kitchen beckons, boasting a grand central island adorned with bar stool seating for casual dining. Custom cabinets, adorned in elegance, harmonize effortlessly with stylish marble countertops and high-end stainless steel appliances, highlighted by a Thermador six-burner professional cooktop with a griddle and dual ovens. The kitchen seamlessly transitions into the adjacent family room, fostering a unified “great room” concept. Here, an uninterrupted view of the backyard, facilitated by a sweeping bi-folding wall of floor-to-ceiling windowed doors, evokes a seamless connection with nature.

Beyond the doors lies an idyllic patio that spills onto the lawn, offering access to the enchanting cottage/ADU on the property. Ascending the main staircase, a symphony of decorative wood railing and wrought iron banisters guides you to three upstairs bedrooms and office space. Among these, the primary suite beckons with its generous proportions, featuring a walk-in closet and a lavish en-suite complete with a walk-in shower and a jacuzzi tub. Additionally, two other well-appointed bedrooms are served by a connecting bathroom. Completing the home space is a two-car garage, thoughtfully augmented by two generously proportioned closets designed to accommodate all your storage needs.

Prime Mid-Peninsula Haven

Savor the proximity to local coffee shops and eateries along Florence St., a hub encompassing Delucchi’s Market and the Freewheel Brewing Company. The nearby Flood Park is a testament to the area’s commitment to recreation and relaxation.

Beyond its local charm, this residence sits strategically close to major thoroughfares and public transit modes, effortlessly bridging you to the sprawling expanse of the San Francisco Bay Area, encompassing both the tech pulse of Silicon Valley and the cultural hub of San Jose. As the sun sets, this home graciously transforms into a serene haven, offering a tranquil space for every member of your family.
