Farmhouse in Menlo Park was originally a carriage house at the time of its 1919 construction.
Awelcoming ambience radiates throughout this farmhouse-style home, open over the weekend in Menlo Park. There’s an air of congeniality extended by inviting public rooms, a showcase chef’s kitchen and bedrooms with en suite bathrooms.
“The home is thoughtfully put together — there’s an authenticity that’s beautiful and unique,” said Nick Granoski of Pacific Union Real Estate’s BWG Partners, who is listing 3617 Oak Drive for $5.498 million.
Originally built in 1919, the structure served as a carriage house for a nearby estate. Over time the estate was subdivided, and in the 1930s or ’40s, the two-story structure became a family home. Granoski’s clients invested substantial time, thought and capital into the four-bedroom home, refining the residence and adding luxurious extras like a wine cellar and a sauna.
The result is pure elegance. “All spaces have a purpose,” Granoski said. “Everything functions so smoothly.”
Updated bathrooms include chic fixtures, which lend contemporary contrast to the home’s traditional architectural elements, like beamed ceilings, tall
wainscoting and original hardwood flooring.
The home opens to a living room with a gas fireplace, then passes through a bonus room with a beamed ceiling and stone accent wall. The open kitchen revolves around a granitetopped island with bar seating, and accesses the landscaped rear garden.
Four bedrooms, including a lavish master suite offering a freestanding soaking tub and a walk-in rain shower with multiple body sprayers, reside on the upper level. The master suite also includes a pair of dressing room closets.
Located in the Fair Oaks neighborhood, the 4,556square-foot home rests on a manicured lot behind an entry gate. Climbing plants twist around the front porch trellis as a gently sloping lawn stretches before the home. A stone patio waits out back, along with a detached studio that could house an office or exercise room.
