Atherton needs no introduction on this blog. We’ve written extensively about the 94027 ZIP code and the fact that it is among the most expensive places to live in the nation. And for good reason. Along with its beautiful forested and rolling hillsides, Atherton is known for its large, private estates—like this gorgeous estate property spanning nearly an acre.

Inspired by the villas in the European countryside, the main residence boasts 7,555 square feet and encompasses five bedrooms, six baths and two half baths.

The “warm and inviting” interiors, as listing agent Hugh Cornish of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Menlo Park-El Camino calls them, reveal a harmonious blend of grand spaces for large gatherings and intimate spaces for quieter moments.

Four ensuite bedrooms provide plenty of room for family. There’s also a fully equipped one-bedroom guesthouse for overnight visitors who want more privacy. The beautifully appointed grounds beckon with a pool, spa, fireplace and outdoor kitchen. “It’s a place for complete relaxation,” adds Cornish. “You’ll never want to leave.”
