Classic and timeless, this updated ranch is set on more than one-quarter acre at the end of a cul-de-sac in the esteemed Crescent Park neighborhood of Palo Alto. The home boasts 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, all conveniently located on a single level, plus a bonus room converted from the garage and ideal for a family room or remote work office with private entrance. Throughout most of the home, fine hardwood floors extend, along with expansive windows and a sliding glass door to the very private rear grounds, where a sparkling pool awaits. Vast wraparound decks with built-in seating, a covered patio, and a stretch of lawn offer an ideal setting for entertaining and play. For additional recreation, Eleanor Pardee Park is just one block away, and downtown University Avenue’s shops and restaurants are within a mile’s reach. Adding the finishing touch is the home’s access to excellent Palo Alto schools.
With its international reputation as a leader in technological development, educational prowess, California heritage tradition, and outstanding climate, Palo Alto is quite an extraordinary place. Home to Stanford University, the town has been greatly influenced by the academic community and many Palo Alto residents first came to attend Stanford, and ended up staying, contributing to the city's diversity. Thought of as the gateway to Silicon Valley, a number of the first technology companies originated here, many of them founded by Stanford Alumni. The community is highly walkable and offers charming residential streets and leafy boulevards. University Avenue serves as Palo Alto's downtown and features upscale restaurants, charming bistros, galleries, and boutiques and is within easy walking distance of Stanford. Categorized as an "urban forest," Palo Alto is home to a variety of environmental spaces such as The Baylands' marshes, rolling foothills, thriving creeks, multi-use parks, and community gardens. Whether strolling one of the fashionable downtown streets or enjoying the natural beauty of a local park, Palo Alto has something for everyone.
