Do homes have souls? We think this classic beauty at 1215 Forest Avenue does!
The home radiates warmth and hospitality, and it provides well-arranged spacious rooms comfortable for daily living as well as entertaining.
Public rooms are oriented to capture views of the enchanting surrounding garden and all have French doors that open to an inviting brick patio, providing effortless transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Elegant interior appointments include a dramatic high ceiling in the living room, charming corner display cabinets in the dining room, and hardwood floors.
Over the years as needs changed the long-term owner expanded and modernized the home to include a family room with built-in wall-unit to accommodate home entertainment components as well as favorite books and games. The second story was enlarged by the addition of an owners’ suite, bringing the upper-level bedroom count to 4 – all large!
A source of delight for the owner is a magical garden surrounding the home. Designed and created over the span of time, there is a rich tapestry of mature and colorful vegetation, accented by a charming brick patio and splashing fountain. It is a peaceful retreat for outdoor enjoyment.
We learned a lot about this home as we worked with the owner to prepare it for the market…..stories about children who grew up, who attended Palo Alto’s renowned schools, cookies exchanged with the friendly neighbors, and holidays and special events that were celebrated.
And now it’s time for another transition, this time to a new owner, who we hope will derive as much pleasure and enjoyment from this special home.
We will be hosting an open house on Sunday, November 11, from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. We hope that you will stop by. We’d love to show you around.
