Portola Valley, CA, US
229 Grove Dr
Enjoy inspiring views of the surrounding gardens from every room in this 4- bedroom, 2-bath home with pool and spa set on approximately 1+ acres in desirable Portola Valley. According to previous owners, the house was designed in 1955 by Ellis Jacobs, a protg of Frank Lloyd Wright. Wrights architectural style is evident through the extensive use of skylights and expansive walls of glass that fill this single-level home with an abundance of natural light and create a seamless connection between the inside and outside areas. Wrights influence is also seen in the open floor plan, built-in cabinetry, large brick fireplace and the use of other natural materials. The spacious living room and adjacent kitchen, both with garden access, create the perfect space for large and small gatherings.
