Atherton, California Estate by Markay Johnson Construction

Located on a beautiful corner lot of just over one acre, this sumptuous home presents Country French styling – with leaded glass windows, half-timber accents, and a steeply pitched roof finished in varying shades of slate. Completed in 2006, the home is magnificently appointed with traditional appeal and classic elegance surrounding a vast center terrace that accommodates indoor/outdoor living so easily. Distressed walnut floors span the main living areas, numerous rooms are accented with a bowed wall of windows, and ceilings are architecturally interesting and unique. There are 4 additional upstairs bedroom suites with the convenience of a second family room, plus a fully equipped guest house with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Equally impressive are the resort-inspired grounds, which include a beautiful pool and spa just beyond the Builder: Markay Johnson Construction

A sport court, vast stretches of level lawn, and English gardens manicured to perfection complete the setting.

Markay Johnson Construction
This project was completed a few years ago, a current cost estimate would range on the exterior hardscape with the pool and landscaping anywhere from $230,000 to $350,000 please note this in not an exact quote rather an estimate based on current project prices of similar selection and sizes. Best, Markay Johnson Construction
