Almost 100 years since being built, and today designated on Los Altos’ Historic Resource List, this classic Spanish hacienda is a landmark home in the neighborhood (see History that follows). The exterior details are ever so distinctive with a series of arches, hand-wrought iron railings, red tile roof, and original stained glass. The rich detail of the home’s history continues inside, nowhere more apparent than in the grand-scale living room with majestic fireplace – a breathtaking space designed with entertaining in mind. Luxurious updates for 21st century living blend in seamlessly with a large beautifully updated kitchen with high-end appliances, inviting family room, and updated bathrooms. Equally impressive are the grounds, spanning more than one-third acre with vast space for entertaining and recreation, majestic Canary palms, and a footbridge pond. Rounding out the appeal is the home’s location just one-half mile to the Village for shopping and dining and close to acclaimed Los Altos schools – truly a rare opportunity to continue the legacy of this treasured home.
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.
