Center of the Universe...Atherton, CA

Define your latitude at the center of the universe…just minutes from Facebook, Stanford, Sand Hill Road, Caltrain, and the heart of Silicon Valley! This rare opportunity is across from Atherton’s picturesque Holbrook Palmer Park, and presents a sun-blessed .96 acre all-usable parcel. Built in 1958, the dream of the California Ranch lives on here with seamless indoor/outdoor living, resort-like pool, and privacy all around. The single-level floorplan flows easily for the modern family or those seeking multiple retreats within the layout. Many rooms open out to the “life of the party” rear grounds where copious patios, garden vignettes, and tremendous open land will inspire festive events year-round. Sunny exposures from the west and south ensure the brilliance and solar-friendly aspects of this property. Interior updates and amenities include hardwood floors, updated double pane windows, a Viking chef’s kitchen, spa-like master bath and more.

Augmenting the main formal rooms, many extra destinations make this floorplan work so beautifully. Off the kitchen you will find a stunning tucked-away family room complete with towering ceiling and yard access. Also off of the kitchen, an enormous bonus room invites flexibility for guest/nanny quarters (nearby full bath) or music studio, gym, or theater. The master suite privately commands the far wing of the home and purveys generous square footage including your “spa zone” fully remodeled bathroom. The balance of four well-sized bedrooms (all together) is a hallmark of this family livability. Outside, the estate feeling begins with a circular driveway. Space and privacy abound with the luxury of nearly 1 acre, all-flat and usable. The friendly environs may inspire a future outdoor kitchen, pool house, or bocce court. But more profoundly, with 98 McCormick Lane you have found the center of the universe at a great value: roll out of bed to acres of a world class park…jump onto Highway 101 in less than 5 minutes…connect easily to Palo Alto, Stanford, downtown Menlo Park, Sand Hill Road, and The Rosewood. Avail of prestigious Menlo Park schools…Walk to Caltrain for a carefree commute into San Francisco…the world at your doorstep…Welcome Home.
