An exquisite expression of the guiding principles of Japanese aesthetics, Larry EllisonĀ“s extraordinary West Atherton estate offers visual appeal around every corner. Abundant windows and sliding glass doors with pocket shoji screens open to the exquisitely landscaped grounds, affording seamless integration between the interior spaces and the Japanese gardens. The elegant and flowing floorplan of 7 bedrooms and 7.5 baths is arranged over two levels, highlighted by a sumptuous master suite with a fireplace and two full bathrooms. The outstanding grounds of approximately 2.8 acres include an authentic Japanese tea house, exquisite Japanese strolling gardens with decks, ponds, waterfalls, koi pond, an in-ground spa off the master suite, a dark-bottom swimming pool rimmed with boulders that melds into the landscape, and a clay tennis court with a wisteria-covered viewing pavilion. Each season is announced by a timed burst of color. Located near the Menlo Circus Club. Menlo Park schools.

I wonder why he’s selling? Anyone know?

Thanks to reader Andy C for this heads up that this was available!
