House inspired by Japanese design lists in Atherton, California


A spectacular five-bedroom, six-bathroom estate inspired by Japanese design has hit the Silicon Valley real estate market for $ 12.9 million.

The 5,400-square-foot home, located in Atherton, California, was built by the same architect who designed billionaire Larry Ellison’s home nearby, according to Mansion Global.

“He’s got a really cool Japanese farmhouse style,” DeLeon Realty listing agent Michael Repka told Mansion Global. “It’s very distinctive and chic.”

The single storey house is an artist’s dream with its vast spaces, its bar with sink and its dining room which allows natural light to illuminate every corner. But what really stands out is the indoor pool and hot tub, which are surrounded by windows. The pool house also has a bedroom and a bathroom.

“Incredible grounds evoke the feel of a Japanese garden with multiple terraces, seating and colorful plantings,” the listing said on

Japanese design exudes a Zen atmosphere inside and outside the house.

“Traditional Japanese Zen philosophy inspires the simplistic and natural essence found in minimalist architecture and design,” says Home Designing. “Line, form, space, light and material are just a few of the essentials at the heart of this very popular design aesthetic. ”
