New construction isn’t exactly common anywhere in the Bay Area; in Atherton, it’s rare indeed, and if it exists, we better expect something spectacular: This five bed, six bath, 12,000 square foot luxury listing — brand newly built at 20 Belbrook Way — is just that.
The contemporary creation glimpsed in the gallery above is that of renowned San Francisco architects Butler Armsden. Inside, along with the plethora of beds and baths already mentioned, find an office, two family rooms plus a recreation room with bar and wine cellar, “curbless showers,” a steam room and sauna and a gym.
Outside the main house, on the very private feeling 1.43 acres, features include a one-bedroom guest house with full kitchen, a 50-foot pool and spa, lawns, and landscaping for days. That luxury trend we’ve mentioned before, the walls that actually function as doors, appears here too, described in the listing as “Floor-to-ceiling disappearing glass panels on both sides of the great room and in the guest house for a truly seamless connection across the courtyard lawn.”
A home for fame and fortune
That private feeling we wrote about above isn’t just a feeling. Again, according to the listing itself, owners of this home will enjoy “onsite or remote programmable systems, video surveillance, and gated privacy set far back from the street.” In other words, this is a property fit for celebrit y– which you would sort of have to be… 30 Belbrook Way lists for $21,980.
