Tucked away behind a privacy gate, this 3 bedroom/3 bath home is a sensory delight! Just 8 blocks to downtown Palo Alto and steps from Town & Country Village, the enchanting garden setting provides complete privacy and is a veritable oasis in the heart of Silicon Valley.
The pleasant sounds of splashing water and birds chirping greet you as you walk along the path leading to the impressive front porch, just one of several places inviting a pause to enjoy the tranquil garden, a rich tapestry of varied hues of green with occasional pops of color.
The lovely 1911 Craftsman style home has been expanded and authentically restored by its 3rd owner. Architectural details include clear-heart redwood beams, ceiling and paneling, handsome fir floors, and large picture windows framing views of the garden.
The large living room has a high open-beam ceiling and the dining room features period built-in cabinetry; both rooms have charming clinker brick fireplaces. For more intimate occasions, a distinctive 25-pane rolling door separates these two rooms.
The renovated kitchen with professional appliances features sleek quartz counters providing plenty of workspace.
There are 2 main floor bedrooms and a spacious upstairs master retreat with vaulted ceiling and treetop views. The 3 bathrooms are luxuriously remodeled.
The peaceful surrounding garden harmonizes with the interior beauty of the home. Lush greenery, stone patios, splashing water features and landscape lighting provide a delightful setting for outdoor enjoyment.
The excellent Old Palo Alto location is just 8 blocks to downtown Palo Alto.
