The offering at 246 Atherton Avenue is a three-story, seven-bedroom, 18,000-square foot affair (not counting the one-bedroom guest house) on more than two-and-a-half acres of land, designed by Farro Essalat, of San Mateo‘s Essalat Architects. The exact asking price is $39.8 million.
Inside, you’re looking at oak coffered ceilings that are 22 feet high; white oak and limestone floors; oak cabinets in the library; three kitchens; en suite bathrooms across the board plus three additional half baths. The master bathroom is tiled in travertine—limestone formed in a natural hot spring.
The wine cellar has a 2,000-bottle capacity, the indoor theater seats 12, the billiards room is tiled in porcelain, and even the pool house has a masonry fireplace and a marble bath.
A perfectly level infinity pond runs down the middle of the geometrically landscaped and manicured grounds (completing the tech campus vibe), and a formidable looking wall and front gate guard the front drive and granite-paved motor court.
Gullixson Team, the same realtors handling 47 Camino Por Los Arboles, landed this one too. They commissioned a slick sales video with drone shot aerial views of the place. From above, it looks like a precisely calibrated geometric diagram—or, perhaps, a $40 million game of Tetris in the works.
