    Traditional Hacienda-style house and guest house in Menlo Park totaling 10,000 square feet designed by Robinson Architects. Antique roof tiles, rustic beams, hand-hewn floors and other details all contribute to creating an authentic environment but with all the modern conveniences. Large glass folding doors open up to a terra-cotta tiled patio and circular fountain that doubles as a swimming pool. Permeable concrete driveway surfaces lead to a subterranean 3-car garage and lower level with exercise room, spa, wine cellar and theater.

    Yellow Osage cut stone flank the wrought-iron entry gates. Milled rafter tails give a sturdy foundation for the stacked antique roof tile complete with decades-old lichen. Copper details include clad window with a warm living finish  that provides a patina that changes with each passing year.
