We are pleased to introduce you to our newest listing at 175 Gloria Circle in the popular Vintage Oaks neighborhood of Menlo Park. This neighborhood was created in the late 1990’s when St. Patrick’s Seminary sold part of its vast holdings for development into the subdivision known as Vintage Oaks. The neighborhood is known for its quiet tree-lined streets, beautiful homes with manicured yards, and friendly neighbors. Most of the homes were built by Oak Leaf Associates, a partnership between Vintage Properties and the O’Brien Group, but some like 175 Gloria Circle were designated for custom homes.
Captivating curb appeal hints at the interior beauty of this 5 bedroom/3 bath home that is bathed in natural light and features high ceilings, hardwood floors, and windows that frame views of the surrounding garden.
The formal entry leads to a dramatic living room with a distinctive arched window and fireplace. Beyond is the formal dining room with French doors opening to an expansive deck extending along the back of the home and overlooking the private rear garden.
The open kitchen, informal dining & family rooms are the perfect setting for relaxed living. French doors lead to an outdoor seating area shaded by a majestic oak tree, a signature of this special neighborhood.
One of the unique aspects of the Vintage Oaks neighborhood is that it is partially surrounded by a wall, and bordered by St. Patrick’s Seminary along Seminary Drive. Though it is not an enclosed community, there is no “through-traffic” and it is not uncommon to see children playing together in their front yards or hosting lemonade and cookie stands. The neighborhood is easily accessible to both downtown Palo Alto and Menlo Park, and residents are known to walk to either town to enjoy a morning coffee or evening dinner. The neighborhood is also known as one of the great places for trick-or-treaters. Residents decorate their homes and children from all over (and their parents) enjoy the event.
We hope that you will stop by 175 Gloria Circle during one of our public open houses on Saturday, February 10, and Sunday, February 11, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. We’d love to show you around this beautiful home.
