Convenient to all Silicon Valley employers (Google, Facebook, Apple, HP), and to Stanford campus and Stanford Hospital.
Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: We completely rebuilt our home in 1996, working with artisans and master carpenters to give it Old World charm with modern conveniences. The Norwegian Day Bed next to the fireplace has been featured in Sunset Magazine.
Why the Owner Chose College Terrace, Palo Alto, CA, USA:
Our home is ideal for visitors to Stanford and Silicon Valley. It offers country elegance in the middle of Palo Alto. We completely rebuilt our home in 1996 to create a peaceful haven. Enjoy it as your home away from home when you are in Palo Alto for business or pleasure.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the College Terrace neighborhood, filled with old trees, gracious houses, and tree-lined streets. This is quintessential Palo Alto living. The neighborhood is very peaceful and yet close to everything.
