The Fennwood Estate located in the highly desirable Atherton neighborhood. Fennwood Estate was built in 1885, set on a stunning 1.85 acre property, its secluded driveway graciously opens upon Fennwood – one of Atherton’s earliest and most elegant residences. Victorian era architecture greets visitors at the entry, flanked by the original lampposts and an intricate quarried tile veranda. A formal living room, dining room and a grand ballroom feature the finest craftsmanship of the era with beadings, brackets, dentil and egg-and-dart moldings. Seven bedrooms, four full baths, and an open kitchen complete the main house.
One of Atherton's Oldest and Most Elegant Residences
The attached four-story tower houses two bedrooms, two and one-half bathrooms, a classic smoking/billiards room, and a top-story kitchen overlooking the grounds. The separate guest house consists of a kitchenette and full bath, allowing for multiple accommodations on the estate. This remarkable property features well-manicured grounds with mature trees and lush gardens; all enjoyed in a private setting – yet a short distance to downtown Menlo Park’s amenities.
A True Atherton Legacy Property
A true legacy property, the Fennwood Estate has been owned by local notable names such as the Spreckels family, the Captain Goodall family, and Albert Hahn, inventor and a founder of the Circus Club. The present owners are the fifth family to own the property and have meticulously maintained the home and grounds for more than 40 years. The blend of craftsmanship, elegance, tender loving care, and history make the Fennwood Estate one of Atherton’s most exclusive landmarks.
