25 Bear Gulch Drive

25 Bear Gulch Drive, Portola Valley

5 beds | 4.5 baths | Pool | Completely remodeled

Located in Portola Valley

In the prestigious community of Portola Valley, find this executive estate  perfectly hidden in the heart of Silicon Valley. Arriving through the gates on a 100-yard-long driveway winding past majestic oaks, a sense of serenity immediately unfolds. Completely renovated in 2017, the understated grandeur of the home presents classic and timeless appeal with designer style, abundant natural light, and a seamless connection to the glorious grounds and pool on more than one acre.
The two-story design spans more than 3,800 square feet with fine hardwood floors, ceilings accented with exposed beams and crown moldings, and multiple French doors to the grounds. Public rooms are perfect for grand entertaining but work equally well for everyday relaxation. A fully customized office with multiple workstations is a must for Silicon Valley living, Ring at the front entrance provides added security, and Nest ensures comfort and energy efficiency.
There are five bedrooms perfectly arranged with one on the main level, ideal for guests or an au pair, and four bedrooms upstairs. The master suite is a sumptuous retreat complete with private balcony with beautiful views. A second bedroom features an en suite bath, and two additional bedrooms share a hallway bath. Combinations of limestone, Carrara marble, and tile uniquely appoint each of the bathrooms.
Befitting a Portola Valley estate, the grounds are quintessential California with a pool, spa, two fire pits, a heated cabaña, and playground – all in a gated setting overlooking the western hills and the natural beauty for which Portola Valley is renowned. And, with its close-in location, just over one block to Alpine Hills tennis and swim club, -half mile to an upscale market, and a short drive to Woodside, Sand Hill Road, and Stanford University, this is truly an excellent choice for Silicon Valley living.

  • Sumptuous master suite with western hill view balcony, customized walk-in closet, and bath with steam shower and jetted tub
