Atherton Classic Revival

The remarkable story of this remodel begins in San Francisco where the home was originally built in 1904. Then in 1925 the house was lifted from its location and sent on a barge down the bay to Atherton, where it was placed among towering heritage oak trees and ornamental azaleas and camellias. The ageing structure was stripped down to its framing and had its foundation replaced before being transformed into the beautiful home that now stands. Two wings were added on either side to expand the home, creating an open space for an expansive kitchen and family room on one side of the house, and a master suite with his and hers bathrooms on the other. Ornate moldings vary by room, exemplifying the custom craftsmanship throughout this American neoclassical home. The white wood-paneled walls and exquisitely detailed archways lead guests from room to room to take on sights such as hand-stitched wall coverings and gorgeous chandeliers. This home also features an artist studio in the backyard. Shaped like a barn and with numerous large windows, this studio provides a space to create while overlooking the pool and the well-manicured landscape.
