536 W. Crescent Drive, Palo Alto

 

Boasting all the romance of its circa 1927 heritage on the outside, this home has been transformed inside into a vision of modern luxury. Almost every inch has been touched with a fresh chic sophistication, most often found only in new construction. This rare marriage of time-honored and transcendent invigorates the entire home with a crisp clean white palette and contrasting espresso-hued floors. Clear glass stair railings, ultra-smooth walls, and dramatic skylights combine with preserved leaded glass windows in some rooms, reminiscent of the home’s early heritage. There are 5 bedrooms plus a large office and spacious poolside guest house. The grounds are equally impressive spanning almost one-half acre with amazing privacy and seclusion – yet downtown Palo Alto shops and restaurants are a mere one mile away. And, with access to acclaimed Palo Alto schools and proximity to Stanford University, this is indeed an exceptional home for Silicon Valley living.
