Portola Valley Modern Simplicity

Represented both buyer and seller

Located in Portola Valley

The simple entrance to this thoughtfully modern 4 bedroom and 3 ½ bath home for sale in Central Portola Valley elegantly frames the star feature of the setting – the stunning wide view of the Bay, surroundings and open sky. It opens into the spacious living and dining room combination with 12’ tall floor to ceiling Fleetwood glass doors that slide to disappear, seamlessly blending slate floored indoor and outdoor living. The very private expansive deck with glass railing runs the length of the house providing multiple options for outdoor relaxation. The deck flows on into the fully updated ultra-modern kitchen with Corian counters, custom teak cabinetry, premium appliances, and hidden outlets all completing the clean and sleek design. The open floor plan is complemented by the wood burning fireplace, high ceilings, skylights and abundant natural light.

The main level also includes the family room, laundry room and powder room all floored with the gorgeous Venezuelan slate, as well as the master bedroom. With a hardwood floor and tall sliding glass doors opening onto the deck the serene master bedroom shares the Bay view and also opens onto a woodsy side patio. The understated design details continue into the skylighted en-suite bath with custom cabinetry and a yacht’s functional design touches with multiple drains and a hose tap in the shower. Off the bright bath is a very large windowed walk-in closet.

The 3 additional bedrooms downstairs each open onto their own deck. One of the bedrooms is a 2nd spacious master suite with en-suite bath. Another of the bedrooms has been converted into a home gym. The home also features a mechanical control room for all the state of the art technology details woven throughout the house as well as a 3 car attached garage and plenty of additional storage.

  • Minutes to local shops and restaurants, Stanford University, and Highway 280

The quiet simplicity of the house and its private serene setting casts the spotlight on the tremendous open views and creates the perfect canvas for any buyer.
