Selby Lane, Estate of the Day
Atherton, California is one of those towns where finding a monster estate is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel. This home is fairly traditional on the exterior with a chateau-like facade but with a very modern feel on the outside. The seven-bedroom home has a massive living room, recreation room, and a home theater which is surrounded by temperature-controlled custom-racked wine storage that houses up to 2,000 bottles. The outdoor space includes a large swimming pool, pergolas and a courtyard terrace with pillared arcades that includes a gym and massage salon with its own sauna and mud bath. Everything in this home exudes a sense of thoughtful planning and unique masterful detail. It may not be to your taste but you have to admit that it is extraordinary. it is listed at $11 million. After the jump, a kitchen I could live in.
