Built by the current owners in 2008, this updated interpretation of a classic Craftsman home combines picture-perfect designer detail with above-and-beyond construction standards. Every inch is meticulously rendered with care and energy efficiency is a central theme, beginning with a solar system for electricity. The 4-bedroom, 5-bath home is exceptionally spacious – arranged over 3 levels with wide open staircases and tremendous volume from towering ceilings, numerous skylights, and thoughtful use of natural light throughout. The great room is certain to be a central gathering place, only rivaled by the vast, uninterrupted lower level that stands ready for myriad lifestyle needs. The grounds are equally impressive on almost one-third acre with a large entertainment terrace and eco-friendly rear yard – all in a sought-after South Los Altos neighborhood with access to excellent Los Altos schools.
Located in the foothills of the Santa Cruz mountains, Los Altos is one of the Bay Area's premier communities, due in large part to the city's natural beauty and convenient location between San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Originally an agricultural town with many summer cottages, Los Altos is now a thriving bedroom community known for its beautiful parks and tree-lined streets. Country lanes run throughout the town and are lined with cozy ranch-style houses as well as larger, custom Mediterranean, contemporary, and traditional-style homes. To help maintain the small-town feel of the city, commercial zones within Los Altos are strictly limited to the downtown area and the small shopping and office parks lining Foothill Expressway and El Camino Real. Bucolic charm and unmatched location make Los Altos a great place to call home.
