My Notes

Edit
Fennwood Estate was built in 1885, set on a stunning 1.85 acre property, its secluded driveway graciously opens upon Fennwood - one of Atherton's earliest and most elegant residences. Victorian era architecture greets visitors at the entry, flanked by the original lampposts and an intricate quarried tile veranda. The dramatic front door, crowned by a fanlight with gold-colored accents, opens onto a central foyer lighted by the stained glass skylight 26 feet above.A formal living room, dining room and a grand ballroom feature the finest craftsmanship of the era with beadings, brackets, dentals and egg-and-dart moldings. Seven bedrooms, four full baths, and an open kitchen complete the main house.The attached four-story tower houses two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a classic smoking/billiards room, and a top-story kitchen overlooking the grounds.The separate guesthouse consists of a kitchenette and full bath, allowing for multiple accommodations on the estate.This remarkable property features well-manicured grounds with mature trees and lush gardens; all enjoyed in a private setting - yet a short distance to downtown Menlo Park's amenities.A true legacy property, the Fennwood Estate has been owned by local notable names such as the Spreckels family, the Captain Goodall family, and Albert Hahn, inventor and a founder of the Circus Club. The present owners are the fifth family to own the property and have meticulously maintained the home and grounds for more than 40 years.The blend of craftsmanship, elegance, tender loving care, and history make the Fennwood Estate one of Atherton's most exclusive landmarks.
