At the top of a knoll in Atherton, home to America's most expensive zip code, modern master Joseph Esherick built a spare, white-columned home with a shaded wraparound deck and glass-door walls. With five bedrooms, six baths, and a whopping 8,315 square feet of living space, the 1961 home sits on a combined two parcels of just over five acres, making it one of the largest lots in Atherton. Inside, the brokerbabble chirps, there's an atrium with 13-foot ceilings, which is just detectable in photos of the cushily staged living room.
We'd love to see a new buyer take the decor in a more modern direction—though looking at those cavernous rooms, we do understand the impulse to attempt to fill the space with plump sofas and plush carpeting. Esherick-designed homes have a way of going for over asking in San Francisco, so we'll be keeping an eye on this one.
