A classic Victorian facade makes way to chic and sophisticated interiors in this completely updated home with a detached ADU, set on a quiet tree-lined street, just two blocks from Downtown Palo Alto! Flush with curb appeal, the front of the home offers a beautifully landscaped and fenced garden and inviting entry porch. The light-filled living room features custom built-in cabinetry and a gas burning fireplace with Heath tile surround and handsome rolled steel mantle. A stunning Italian Tecnogas range is the centerpiece of the chef’s kitchen with high end appliances and a generous central island for additional storage and seating. The main level is completed by a parlor-style room with en-suite bath and private exterior entrance, ideal as an office or for guests. Upstairs, the primary suite is enhanced by vaulted ceilings and features a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom with luxurious soaking tub, designer floor tiles and double sink vanity.

Architectural doors open to the expansive ipe deck, extending the living spaces outdoors.
