about this home's










119 Selby Lane, Atherton


Presenting a modern interpretation of an East Coast farmhouse, this stunning home has been renovated from top to bottom with extraordinary style. Inside and out, the craftsmanship and design are unmatched with impeccable details at every turn. The architecture is timeless and sophisticated with Fleetwood glass doors in many rooms for a completely seamless and unimpeded connection to the outdoors. Shiplap-paneled walls, gorgeous hardwood floors, and a stylish array of natural stones and tiles unify the entire home, which spans two levels, including distinctly private upstairs wings.

There are 5 bedrooms plus a 2-bedroom guest house with full kitchen. An executive office, library, craft room, recreation room, and fitness center (or bedroom) are additional venues incorporated into this thoughtful design. Equally impressive are the fully landscaped grounds with everything needed for indoor/outdoor living, including a pool and spa, bocce court, and barbecue kitchen. Added touches for play include a customized treehouse with suspension bridge and an inground trampoline, while gardening enthusiasts will revel at the Corten steel vegetable beds, fruit trees, and chicken coop. Native grasses and cobblestone paths tie it all together on approximately one acre.

Remarkable in its beauty and incredible livability – in sought-after central Atherton midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley – this is the ultimate family or executive retreat.

119 Selby Lane

Home to one of the most sought-after zip codes in the country, Atherton’s six square miles provide privacy and prestige in the heart of the San Francisco Peninsula.

Situated between San Francisco and San Jose, Atherton is minutes away from Sand Hill Road, the center of the venture capital community, and a short commute away from dozens of high tech companies including Apple, Google and Facebook. It’s close to two international airports and about 90-minutes away from world-class wine tasting in Napa Valley or legendary golf courses in Pebble Beach. It’s the central location of this tucked away town that gives its affluent residents the best of both worlds.

The area initially gained popularity as a summer home destination for the San Francisco elite in the late 19th century. And while it is now the primary residence of many top executives, venture capitalists and lauded athletes, it has maintained the characteristics it was founded on and continuously ranks as the one of the wealthiest communities in America.

Atherton’s thickly wooded, curbless streets are home to large, secluded lots with predominantly single family residential homes. There are no multi-family, mixed-use or industrial land uses in the Town of Atherton and no commercial zones, with the exception of private schools and a country club. These closely guarded rules give residents the quiet, small-town feel they seek while still keeping them in close proximity to the conveniences and enterprise of Silicon Valley.

The town’s 50 miles of roads are lined with mature live oaks, bays, redwoods, cedars, pines and other ornamental trees. At its heart is Holbrook-Palmer Park, 22 acres of open, tree-adorned space with indoor and outdoor facilities, including tennis courts, gardens, walking paths and rental facilities for special events
