Luxury Home Magazine Silicon Valley | SF Peninsula | Coastal presents a Japanese-inspired estate in West Atherton on the front cover of Issue 10.5
|West Atherton, CA – October 10, 2017 – This extraordinary West Atherton estate, remodeled, expanded and landscaped, is an exquisite expression of Japanese aesthetics and offers visual appeal.
Interior spaces and gardens outside are seamless; windows and sliding doors with pocket shoji screens open to the exquisite grounds.
The emphasis is further reflected by lavish use of honed, polished stone, honey-toned oak flooring, and yellow Alaskan cedar woodwork.
Formal rooms are arranged to function as large unified spaces for grand entertaining or intimate salons with sliding shoji panels.
The 1.78 acres were designed as a sequence of spaces that conceal and reveal, tantalizing both the eye and spirit. It includes a traditional tea house with tatami mat flooring and a Japanese wooden soaking tub outside.
Deliberately indirect slate pathways curve through groves of supple bamboo and sweeps of raked gravel. Stone slab footbridges arch over calm ponds, one filled with koi. The dark-bottom swimming pool blends with the gardens.
