Atherton, California Estate by Markay Johnson Construction

Builder: Markay Johnson Construction

Project Details:
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 center terrace and all finished in Connecticut bluestone. A sport court, vast stretches of level lawn, and English gardens manicured to perfection complete the setting.

I believe that they were custom built beams - some are real and some are faux, this home did not use reclaimed material. Best, Markay Johnson Construction

This door was custom designed, you will want to talk to a local custom door company to have this type of door built for you. I do not have the name or information on the hardware used. Best, Markay Johnson Construction

The beams are a custom stain mixed on site to Owners taste. Please contact a local painter that can match the stain as shown. Best, Markay Johnson Construction

What was the stain used on the mantle and beams ? What type of wood is the mantle ?

The stain for the beam work is a custom mixed color. The wood material I believe is walnut. Unfortunately I do not have the name of the stone on the fireplace. A local mason can assist you with finding the stone. Best, Markay Johnson Construction
