Extensively remodeled in 2002. This secluded garden retreat is freshly updated with a crisp white palette, hardwood floors, and almost every room opening to native plantings surrounding the home. Views to the western hills enhance the setting and sanded walking paths invite outdoor lingering. Built-in glass-front library storage with retractable book stands lines the foyer and one wall in the living room - perfect for a book collector. The kitchen is a chef's dream with Viking gas range and butler's area plus a large casual dining space and access to both the formal dining room and the family room. A dedicated office with built-ins for two is perfect for today's work-from-home needs. There are 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, including a primary suite with black and white designer bath, a second suite, and two bedrooms - all with sliding glass doors to the gardens. Adding the finishing touch is a fully screened-in vegetable garden and numerous fruit trees. Acclaimed Palo Alto schools.
