My Notes

Tucked away in complete privacy, this just-completed home and guest house combine the character of a classic Craftsman with modern designer style. Espresso-hued hardwood floors tie every room together in quiet harmony, tall ceilings expand the flowing floor plan, and expansive windows and glass doors open to inviting venues for outdoor living. Almost entirely rebuilt as the owner?s dream home to retire to, the new floor plan has 4 bedrooms, an office, large family/media room, plus 3.5 bathrooms. Adding to the accommodations is a 1-bedroom, 1-bath guest house with full kitchen ? the ideal space for extended family or an au pair. The fully landscaped grounds of almost one-half acre are equally impressive ? from the expanses of paver stone hardscape to sun-swept level lawn and intimate terraces for outdoor enjoyment. With its sought-after north Los Altos, West Portola track location, just minutes to the Village, this is truly a special place to call home in the heart of Silicon Valley! 

What I love about the home

Move here for the schools. Stay for the small town friendliness and beautiful natural setting. The town of Los Altos can pretty much be summed up in a few words; safe, intelligent and family. The community and the attitude of its occupants are nearly perfect for raising a child. The town boasts the Silicon Valley community with one of the highest percentages of the population having earned at least a Bachelor's degree (71%). It is only natural then that there is a lot of civic pride in the performance of the schools and sense of responsibility for the children, even among most empty-nesters who live here. Community offerings that focus on children include the Festival of Lights parade, the pet parade, a hang out for teens called The Underground, Redwood Grove and the Junior Olympics.

Market guide

Zillow predicts 94022 home values will increase 4.2% next year, compared to a 3.4% increase for Los Altos as a whole. Among 94022 homes, this home is valued 22.1% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 0.3% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In 94022, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 42.5% higher than in Los Altos, and 4.7% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 94022 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Los Altos.
