This classic 1918 Craftsman has been transformed into a chic and sophisticated home while still preserving its past. Refinished hardwood floors throughout the main level provide a distinctive contrast to the bright, freshly painted interiors. The open arrangement of rooms adds 21st century style; front alcoves offer quiet respites for reading and music; and the wood-paneled study with fireplace is the perfect Lirbrary/Study. At the heart of the design, a chef’s kitchen and adjoining family room transition to the resort-inspired grounds where a pool, spa, fireplace, and outdoor kitchen and dining offer quintessential California living.

Personal accommodations are flexible and thoughtfully arranged with 4 bedrooms, including a lavish upstairs master suite, plus a separate cottage for guest quarters, an office, or poolside entertaining. Located in sought-after Crescent Park, this home is just 5 blocks to outstanding shops and restaurants on lively University Avenue and has access to excellent Palo Alto schools – town and country living at its finest!
