Twice a week, The Chronicle features a home on the market that caught our eye for its architecture, history or character. More photos: www.sfgate.com/columns/walkthrough
Address: 147 Stockbridge Ave., Atherton
Asking price: $16.9 million
Description: Beautiful materials pair with spa-caliber comforts in a decadent Hamptonesque estate. Nearly every conceivable convenience and amenity can be found in the home with palatial dimensions. Custom audio, wool carpet, statuary marble counters, bars and a wine cellar are only a few of the creature comforts of the estate. A richly finished family room is at the center of the home. Here, a stone fireplace and wood trussed ceilings lend warming touches to the interior lit by the sun. Outside, Bluestone patios accent a landscaped backyard complete with a verdant lawn, a built-in barbecue, a pool, a spa and a 544-square-foot pool house. The master suite includes a pair of walk-in closets alongside a spa bathroom.
Don’t miss: The lower level. There’s a fitness center, a sauna, a theater, a game room and a lounge. And there is a wine cellar with a frameless glass wall that keeps the level open and airy.
