Property Description

Vacation and work peacefully at home in this 3BD, office/bonus room, 2BA private retreat in secluded Los Trancos Woods. Enjoy sweeping views of the Bay, bridges, and Foothill Park. The remodeled open floor plan expands the original Usonian design of renowned Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesin West architect, Aaron Green. The property also offers investment opportunities. The two legal lots are offered together at a discounted price, pending a lot line adjustment. The secluded property is on a cul-de-sac just steps across the road from a serene lake and acres of open space with walking trails. Live in a private world apart, yet minutes from Stanford University, 280, Menlo Park, Palo Alto and all Silicon Valley has to offer. The extensively remodeled and updated open floor plan enhances the original Usonian design of renowned Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesin West architect, Aaron Green. Custom features integrate the stunning views into the living spaces. The expansive deck, spanning the length of the house and overlooking Foothill Park, is ideal for entertaining, relaxing, and watching fireworks around the Bay. High vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and multiple skylights capture abundant natural light. A magnificent dining room addition by the tranquil Zen garden is bathed in sun from four skylights. The remodeled, light-filled kitchen features granite counters, Wolf range, stainless steel appliances, and a skylight. Awaken in the enlarged master bedroom to view spectacular sunrises over the bay. Look through skylights framing soaring hawks and glittering stars. In the master bath, relax in the jetted tub while gazing at heritage oaks. Enjoy the shower with windows framing maples and oaks. A separate wing provides two additional bedrooms with cedar closets and a second full bathroom. The bonus room could serve as an office, den, gym, or fourth bedroom. The grounds provide level areas (rare in hilly Los Trancos Woods) for children’s play, a putting green, or bocce court. A drip irrigation system maintains the drought-resistant landscaping. The 20,009 square foot, .46 acre (per 2020 survey) property affords a FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITY!! The original two legal lots are currently being offered together at a combined discounted asking price. A pending lot line adjustment within the property boundaries will create two reconfigured, separate parcels. The Detached Residence will sit on a 12,493 square foot (Parcel 1) allowing construction of an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) or studio. Parcel 2, a separate, vacant lot of 7,515 square feet, will permit construction of an investment house. Take advantage of the multiple scenarios for further expansion, development, and investment. Alpine Hills Swim and Tennis Club and Portola Vineyards are just down the hill. High-quality Portola Valley schools, Ormondale Elementary (K-3) and Corte Madera School (4-8), make a compelling reason to purchase in PV!
