Well-loved by the same owners for 50 years, this old-style bungalow has preserved charm from the 1920s with contemporary touches for today’s modern lifestyle. The expansive living room takes your breath away when you enter with its soaring ceilings, original woodwork, and natural light. The cohesive flow of the floorplan connects all the spaces very nicely and creates a lovely environment for family living.
The formal dining room is spacious yet warm and inviting, with beautiful hardwood floors and a window bringing light from the sunny family room. Adjacent to the dining room is an appealing kitchen with a gas range, cherry cabinetry, and fresh white countertops providing ample space for prepping and cooking.
The family room is a glorious place to be, surrounded by windows on three sides overlooking the beautiful garden. On the opposite wall, an inset area is a great place for a TV without taking up additional space in the room. Additionally, there is space for a breakfast table or office area to enjoy the morning sun streaming in.
The upstairs primary suite is just glorious. It is bright and open with high ceilings and a skylight and is large enough to accommodate a sitting area. A large sliding glass door opens to a private deck that is very special and serene overlooking treetops, the garden below, and the neighborhood beyond. A wonderful place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a relaxing drink in the evening. The bathroom is roomy and also has great light with a skylight above the vanity revealing a mature oak tree and a full glass door providing a lovely view of the deck and potted plants. It has a special design that brings the outdoors in and creates an enchanting environment.
Many details in the design are functionally appealing, such as the storage pantry under the stairway and the large attic, with a washer and dryer conveniently located off the primary walk-in closet.
The landscaping is beautifully designed with mature crepe myrtle trees in the front and flowering garden beds to welcome you as you approach the front door and covered porch. The backyard has a refinished deck to enjoy outdoor dining and relaxing next to a lush shade garden with pops of color adding to the serene environment. Two whimsical garden beds are designed to enjoy vegetables, herbs, or flowers to your liking.
The location is fabulous! The neighborhood is friendly, diverse, and peacefully quiet; all the while, you can walk out the door and be downtown Palo Alto in minutes! It’s also a beautiful drive down University Avenue to the freeway.
A quote from the seller:
“Coming downstairs from the light-filled primary suite, there is a grand view of the spacious and comfortable living room, with even more natural light. The soaring ceiling makes it feel like a special place.”

Palo Alto has a lot to offer its residents, including tree-lined streets, a thriving downtown, a plethora of parks and open space for recreation, and excellent public schools. The city’s location next to the Stanford University campus gives residents easy access to lectures, extension courses, and other educational opportunities.
The city of about 66,000 incorporated in 1894 and got its name from a 1,000-year-old redwood tree along San Francisquito Creek. Palo Alto residents are highly educated, with nearly 80 percent of those 25 and older holding at least a bachelor’s degree, according to 2013 United States Census Bureau estimates. The median household income is $122,532. Forbes ranked Palo Alto's 94301 ZIP code 24th on its 2014 list of Most Expensive ZIP Codes, with a median home sales price of $3,525,837.
Open-space areas account for nearly one-third of the approximately 25-square-mile city, which boasts more than 30 municipal parks. Only residents and their guests may access the 1,400-acre Foothills Park on Page Mill Road. The city has one of the most active downtowns on the Peninsula, and an array of restaurants and shops line University Avenue and California Avenue. The Stanford Shopping Center is also a popular destination for retail and dining. Free parking is available in municipal lots downtown.
Numerous tech companies are headquartered in Palo Alto, including Hewlett-Packard and Tesla Motors. Many prominent Web businesses and brands, such as Facebook, Pinterest, and PayPal, got their start in the city.
