Well, it’s no secret…..we love this home and a lucky buyer was able to purchase it before we even got it on the market!
The 4 bedroom/3.5 bath home is located in the Crescent Park neighborhood of North Palo Alto, where attractive homes front onto beautiful tree-lined streets. The neighborhood is within blocks of vibrant downtown Palo Alto, but far enough away to offer a respite from busy urban living. Some of the city’s finest amenities are also within blocks: Eleanor Pardee and Rinconada parks, the Rinconada and Children’s libraries, the Palo Alto Art Center, and the Lucie Stern Community Center.
The City prides itself on an outstanding public school system and 3 of these schools service the home at 650 Center, Duveneck Elementary, Jordan Middle and Palo Alto High Schools.
The home at 650 Center is a rare one-level jewel, extensively renovated with careful thought to details and quality. Some of the classic appointments include high ceilings, crown molding, wainscoting, true-divided light windows, French doors and hewn wood floors.
The superb kitchen is bathed in natural light and remodeled with granite slab counters that top handsome cabinets that provide generous storage. Sleek stainless appliances include a 6-burner gas range positioned in a large center island underneath a large skylight. The adjoining breakfast nook with glass front display cabinets and convenient serving buffets overlooks the front garden.
The spacious living room features a large fireplace, and French doors and windows that frame views of the garden. The separate dining room accommodates a large table and French doors lead to an inviting patio.
One of our favorite rooms is the family room with its open beam vaulted ceiling, bookshelves and a fireplace. What a perfect place for quiet relaxation!
A lovely garden with stone patios and paths surrounds the home and there is a separate area for a hot tub. Mature greenery studded with seasonal color is a beautiful backdrop to lush lawns.
We are delighted for the new owners and we wish them many happy years in their new home!
