My Notes

Stunning Craftsman Style Forever Home in Portola Valley RanchSurrounded by the serene natural open space preserve of Portola Valley Ranch, this extraordinary "forever home" embodies the understated quality and luxury that can only be found in a builder's own home. Remodeled to perfection in 2008 by the Founder of Harrell Remodeling, an award winning custom design-build contractor, this spectacular home offers a distinctive focus on comfort, livability, functionality and efficiency. Here the principles of universal design and sustainability are fully embraced and enjoyed. Nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac and sited to maximize appreciation of its natural surroundings, the home offers all of the benefits of rural retreat-like living with the added convenience of being close to town. The exquisite five-bedroom, three-bath home is arranged on two levels, both with sliding glass doors opening on to spacious decks that span the entire length of the home and overlook gorgeous hillside and valley views.Every feature of the home exudes quality and thoughtful planning, from its skylights that provide generous natural light to an open floor plan that incorporates space for intimate or large gatherings. A system of carefully placed rooftop solar panels supply a large portion of the home's electricity and European rolling shutters block or filter the sun's rays, protecting the windows and keeping the house cool. Light-filled rooms, designer finishes, custom built-in cabinetry and incomparable attention to every architectural detail make this 4,500+ square foot home the ideal venue to savor the quintessential California lifestyle in this rustic yet sophisticated and close-knit community. For the family who wants to raise their children in a healthy, vibrant and natural environment, or a couple looking for quiet, privacy and ease, this magnificent property provides it all.A welcoming entry leads into the main living and dining area, whose space is defined by the wide-open vistas beyond. The view draws you in. The upper deck extending across the length of the home sets the stage for sunrise breakfasts and dinners under the stars. A gourmet, two-cook kitchen with walk-in pantry and adjacent sitting / family area, two home offices--both with murphy beds, a guest bedroom and a full bath complete the main level. The lower level, accessed via steps or elevator, offers a generous master suite complete with sauna, dual walk in closets, a separate inviting den, office, full bath and a multi-purpose home center complete with laundry, kitchenette, work area and storage. The elevator pays further homage to the home's universal design and impeccable quality, enabling residents and their guest of all ages and abilities to live in unrestricted pampered comfort. Rounding out this showcase property is the detached two-car garage, replete with massive commercial plate glass windows, an oversized workbench and built in storage cabinets plus a garden shed and emergency generator as a bump-out addition directly behind the garage.
