Welcome to estate quality living in one of the best spots in North Los Altos. Positioned on almost one-half acre in a neighborhood of non-through streets, the home is just short blocks to an acclaimed elementary school and only one mile to all the downtown amenities in the Village. Spanning two levels of exceptional craftsmanship, the solar-powered home features 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, and 2 half-baths and is complemented by a spacious guest house that doubles as a wonderful venue for poolside entertaining. Freshly painted interiors, beautiful hardwood and travertine floors, and towering ceilings combine for an ambiance of sophisticated luxury for entertaining, yet ever so warm and inviting for everyday living. Grand formal rooms precede a gourmet kitchen and family room combination, plus there is a large recreation room and temperature-controlled wine cellar on the lower level. Fresh-air living awaits with a heated lanai and barbecue center, a sun-swept solar-heated pool, and bountiful farm-to-table gardens with 6 raised vegetable beds, herb garden beds, and numerous mature fruit trees.
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.
