We are honored to be representing 1650 Waverley Street and releasing it to the market this week.
This remarkable home captures the essence of the Palo Alto lifestyle. It is elegant and gracious while maintaining a welcoming and warm ambiance. It offers an estate-like presence within one of Silicon Valley’s most prestigious neighborhoods, Old Palo Alto, and a comfortable floor plan and location for family living.
The current owners purchased the home in 2005 and working with Linda Scott and Associates completed a “down to the studs” remodel adding modern systems while preserving the authenticity of the original architectural style. Stylish interior finishes include quartz counters and iridescent glass tiles, while the kitchen features vetrazzo recycled glass counters, a colorful and whimsical interior design statement.
Some of the thoughtful aspects of the home for family living include a spacious mud room with hooks, cubbies and charging stations to help keep a busy family organized. The informal dining bar provides seating for four on two sides of the counter, rather than in a row, facilitating communication and interaction.
A family office has been designed with 4 workstations and room for a center table for larger projects. For visiting grandparents there is a private lower-level master suite with a convenient stepless shower.
For formal occasions, guests will enjoy the large living room with a period clinker brick fireplace and the spacious dining room that opens to one of the side terraces.
In addition, there is an alcove that can be furnished as a smaller more intimate seating area, or a music area, or even accommodate informal dining.
The house is surrounded by a beautiful garden and sprawling terraces that serve as extension of the living space. The central patio is rimmed by lush greenery and includes a barbecue area. An orchard and raised planter beds produce fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs, and the expansive lawn with a play structure provides plenty of room for children’s play.
A unique aspect of this home is its amazing location, just blocks to outstanding public schools, allowing children to get there on their own, simplifying family transportation logistics! Gamble Garden Center, Rinconada Park with swimming and tennis facilities, the public library, Lucie Stern Community Center and downtown Palo Alto are also nearby.
This exceptional home has universal appeal, satisfying those desiring elegance and graciousness along with comfort and convenience.
