Two-story Cape Cod on a beautiful tree-lined cul de sac in the heart of Old Palo Alto. Flushed in charm and natural light, this wonderful home includes a front covered porch, formal entry, generous living room with fireplace, formal dining room with access to rear yard, handsome open eat-in kitchen and family room, and a first-floor office (or 5th bedroom) and elegant bathroom. The upstairs boasts 4 bedrooms consisting of the primary bedroom with large walk-in closet and balcony, 3 additional bedrooms with lovely coved dormer windows, and an additional family room with access to balcony that overlooks the expansive rear yard with two patios and a putting green. A gorgeous 1 bedroom, 1 bath ADU, a 4-car garage, and an unbeatable location close to everything Palo Alto and Stanford have to offer. Fantastic neighborhood schools (Walter Hays Elementary, Greene Middle, Palo Alto High) complete the appeal. Live in it, renovate it, or rebuild!
