  • Stunning Whole-Home Eclectic Transformation



    The traditional elegance of an English manor, circa 1937, combines with avant-garde interiors created in a whole-home transformation within the past 3 years. The resulting design is exceptional and unique with accent colors of teal, brushed gold hardware, and silvered mirror. A geometric-pattern theme is a signature of the design with open wall shelves ranging from rectangular to curvilinear, clusters of linear and circular lighting, and tile patterns lending an artistic backdrop on walls and floors. Incomparable modern features include a ceiling mounted faucet in the powder room, retractable tables that come together as a partner’s desk, and a center kitchen island that makes a statement in exotic wood.

    Rising three levels above ground, the 4-bedroom floor plan offers wonderful flexibility for working from home and distance learning with built-in desk spaces plus a top-floor room perfect for office, play, or recreation needs. Additionally, there is a detached studio guest house that could easily double as a remote executive office. Adjoining the guest house is a fitness center converted from the garage. All around, beautifully landscaped gardens, with an English flair in the front and a more manicured style in the rear, add to the appeal, along with a new pool, with convenient swim feature, that was also added as part of the renovation.

    Providing the ultimate eclectic ambiance to vacation, live, and work, this home also benefits from being in the heart of Crescent Park, one of Palo Alto’s most desirable neighborhoods, just one block from Eleanor Pardee Park. Shops and restaurants on famed University Avenue are just one mile away and this home has access to acclaimed Palo Alto schools.
