1715 Bay Laurel Drive, Menlo Park

Luxurious Custom Home on a Creekside Setting

A sense of privacy envelops this European-inspired residence while still being close to Stanford University and the fast pace of Silicon Valley. Situated on a cul-de-sac street on more than one-quarter acre, the home unfolds in elegant luxury with fine hardwoods and ornate millwork extending through the main living areas, plus rich cherry built-ins in several rooms. 4 bedrooms and an office, highlighted by a luxurious master suite with sitting room and private balcony, are thoughtfully arranged across three levels to provide ample accommodations for every need. There are many venues for entertainment and relaxation, including a gorgeous granite kitchen, theatre/recreation room, fitness studio, and tiled crafts room. Outside, the manicured rear grounds are as peaceful as they are beautiful, complete with an outdoor kitchen, crushed glass fire pit, and fragrant gardens, all overlooking tranquil San Francisquito Creek. Adding to the appeal is the home’s close-in location just minutes to shopping and dining in downtown Menlo Park or Stanford Shopping Center, plus with access to the highly acclaimed Menlo Park schools.
