Location: Portola Valley, California
This 1962 home in Portola Valley, in San Mateo County, California, embraces the glory of its surroundings by way of glazed walls, clerestory windows, and a number of outdoor features.
Located just an hour southeast of San Francisco, the 4,825-square-foot midcentury residence spreads out across 1.3 acres and includes five bedrooms, five baths, a great room with two walls made up of full-height windows, a family room adjacent to a giant kitchen, an additional living room, and a formal dining area.
The interiors, which appear to have been updated recently, feature hardwood floors and carpeting and white-paneled walls and ceilings, which contribute to the openness of the space.
But it’s the indoor-outdoor features that really take the home to another level. Multiple balconies, patios, decks, a pool fed by a rocky fountain, gardens, and trees create an oasis with views of the distant San Francisco Bay. The home at 175 Fawn Lane is offered at $4.795 million.
