We are pleased to introduce 560 Chaucer Street this weekend. The home is a rarely available Crescent Park jewel that has been in the same family for about 40 years. The magnetic curb appeal hints at the uniqueness and beauty of this home!
Built in an English style interior features include handsome wood paneling, wainscoting, beams, cabinetry and two charming window seats that overlook the front yard.
A distinctive characteristic of the home is the arrangement of the living, dining and family rooms around an attractive patio rimmed by mature greenery including a stunning gingko tree with brilliant seasonal color, effectively unifying both interior and exterior entertaining spaces.
The grand living room is breath taking and provides a warm and comfortable setting for quiet enjoyment or large gatherings. Its features include high ceilings, random plank hardwood floors, and a wall of windows overlooking the garden. Custom cabinetry and shelving and a delightful window seat flank a dramatic fireplace with rich wood paneled surround.
The family room’s focal point is a large bay window that frames views of the secluded garden. Custom built-ins include desks, shelving and cabinetry to accommodate audio-visual components. There is also a wood-burning fireplace. This room could also be configured for use as a 4th bedroom with adjoining full bath.
There is a spacious dining room and a large kitchen with generous storage.
The second floor includes 3 bedrooms and 2 remodeled baths with handsome finishes and, there’s more!
A versatile 3rd floor attic with 2 dormer windows has been used as a children’s playroom and other purposes over the years. An attached 2-car garage and generous attic storage are additional features.
A beautiful, mature garden with lush greenery invites outdoor enjoyment either on the patio or in the secluded seating area surrounded by raised planting bed and accessed by a covered pathway.
Located in the desirable Crescent Park neighborhood the home is surrounded by similarly handsome homes. It is just 7 blocks to Palo Alto’s vibrant downtown area with a wide assortment of international dining choices and interesting boutiques and stores.
The home is within the Addison Elementary, Jordan Middle and Palo Alto High School enrollment area (subject to availability). The outstanding public schools are just one of the many reasons people choose to make Palo Alto their home.
We would love to give you a personal tour of this special home. Nicole will be hosting open houses on Saturday, January 28 and Sunday, January 29 from 1:30 to 4:30 pm. We hope you will join her!
