Nestled in the foothills of the California Coast Ranges, completely surrounded by dedicated open space, the existing home was built in 1955 of local, adobe bricks and milled redwood. Grand, vaulted ceilings supported by prominent, sturdy beams adorn the structure serving as a reminder of the natural beauty all around.
Although the structure on the estate has been home to a single family since 1969, the property is the perfect spot to build something new, remodel or update the existing structure, and in so doing, customize the dwelling in a way consistent with your own vision.
The mailing address for the property is in Portola Valley; however, the home is actually located within the Palo Alto City limits & Santa Clara County. So, the water service is provided by the City of Palo Alto. Also, the home is currently on septic but, of note, the public sanitation line is located within 300 feet of the structure.
Nestled into a grove of coastal oak trees and surrounded on all sides by designated open space, this property is the perfect setting for a private estate home, family compound, equestrian ranch home, tranquil retreat or whatever your heart desires. Amazingly secluded, yet just minutes from Stanford University, Silicon Valley, and much more. The perfect place to call home. Get started today!
Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD) is ranked in the top 5% of public schools in California. With a student-teacher ratio of 18:1, PAUSD teachers are dedicated,
