1509 Portola Avenue, Palo Alto

Situated on a corner lot, this impressive residence boasts Spanish influence starting with the stucco and terra cotta exterior and continuing throughout this thoughtfully preserved home. Journey through the timeless elegance of the home’s circa 1929 period details beginning at the grand entryway with glass and scrolled metal door surrounded by freshly painted quoin accents. Inside, an impressive two-story foyer with ornate globe chandelier and gleaming hardwood staircase greets you, while underfoot original oak floors begin and extend through almost every room of the home, including the upper-level bedrooms. High ceilings and crown molding are found throughout, exuding a spacious and elegant ambiance.

The formal living room showcases a historic Batchelder tiled replace flanked by two French door entryways, one that opens to a charming Juliet balcony. Fully open to the living room, the study has a wall of built-in bookshelves and wiring for media. Just off the living room is the formal dining room lit by beautiful expansive windows.

A light and bright kitchen overlooking the private courtyard and cottage is nished with white cabinetry and granite countertops. Two side entrances, a mudroom, and a laundry room add every convenience. Completing the main level is a bedroom ideal for guests and a hallway bath with a striking octagonal window surrounded by subway-set tile.

Upstairs, private quarters are highlighted by the master suite with a sleek remodeled bath. Two additional bedrooms are flooded in natural light from stunning windows and offer roominess not found in today’s modern-built homes. A spacious tiled hallway bath with separate tub and shower finishes the level.
