In Professorville, a historic district bordering downtown Palo Alto, this 1922, Dutch Colonial Revival home firmly rests between gorgeous gardens and mature trees.
A curving path flanked by a variety of blooming flowers, each one just as vibrant and beautiful as the next, leads up to 829 Waverley’s elegant veranda. Linger at this serene spot for a moment, and gaze out at the lush lawns of Heritage Park situated just across the street.
When you’re ready to step inside, you’ll find that the classic charm of the exterior extends throughout the home. From the exposed brick fireplace and built-in shelves to the subtle tray ceilings that distinguish the living room and dining room, original detailing warms every corner of the sunny space. Follow light wood floors past broad, paneled windows to the eat-in kitchen finished in emerald green, granite countertops and equipped with high-end stainless steel appliances. Along a hall lined with floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, a crisp white bathroom covered in timeless subway tiles is perfectly located next to the two entry-level bedrooms—ideal for guests or a quiet home office.
Head upstairs to discover three additional bedrooms with interior shutters, a stylish bathroom, a large laundry room, and a bonus space connecting two of the bedrooms that can be used as additional storage space or something much more unique.
At the stair landing, a spiral staircase makes for a whimsical back garden entrance. Rose bushes and trees decorate the exquisite brick inlay patio while a privacy fence lined with overflowing flower beds offer the appealing seclusion you want in a backyard retreat. Invite friends over for open air dining on the expansive deck and spend a memorable night chatting under the starry sky.
You’ll neither have to fret over storage nor space in this impressive home. The basement allows for ample storage, and the backyard’s shed can house all of your gardening equipment. Along with the beloved residences and neighborhood parks that encompass this home, you’ll only be a short stroll from shops, restaurants, Stanford University, and modern conveniences such as Whole Foods and Caltrain.
