European elegance unfolds at the top of a gentle knoll that allows for full appreciation of the Bay views reaching out to the East Bay hills. A signature portico exemplifies the style, introducing a series of Doric columns that continue inside framing the entrances to the public rooms. Graceful flights of stairs define the living areas beginning with a marble foyer, continuing up to the formal living room and library, and then to the formal dining room, kitchen, and family room. The primary bedroom suite, with Bay views, plus a second suite ideal for guests, round out the amenities on the main level. Two additional bedrooms and a bath are tucked away on the lower level along with a large recreation room converted from one bay in the 3-car garage. Adding to the 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in the main home is an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) with full granite-finished kitchen, bath, and convenient access to the main home, as well as private entrance. Rounding out the appeal is the home’s close-in convenience just blocks from Rancho Shopping Center, over 1 mile to the Los Altos Village, and 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.
