335 Webster Street, Palo Alto
Just steps to University Avenue this exceptionally remodeled contemporary open- concept home thoughtfully integrates the inside with the peaceful outdoor garden. Warm natural fine grain woods, soaring ceilings and expansive windows are stunning features integrated seamlessly for maximum comfort and livability.
Quality construction is evident at every turn with industrial accents that lead you through the front door to an open-plan living room-kitchen-dining area flanked by a wall of windows and soaring ceilings. This great room exudes warmth, from the fine-grain wood cabinets to the carefully placed windows allowing garden vistas, natural light and breezes to move freely. The spacious kitchen’s centerpiece is a high counter made of a tree salvaged from the Sacramento Delta. The sleek horizontal-grain oak cabinets provide texture against the stainless steel countertops. Top-of-the line updated appliances include a 6-burner Wolf gas range, a Sub-Zero refrigerator with separate two-drawer freezer and Bosch dishwasher. The kitchen has a built-in wine cabinet designed to use outside air as a natural cooler.
The kitchen-living area opens on to the backyard which can be accessed through telescoping accordion doors. The brick patio is covered by a two-story-high steel and wood pergola allowing filtered shade to prevail. Every inch of the yard is tastefully landscaped with geometric patterns, low-water plants and carefully placed custom-built wood screens to add to the private retreat feel. A heritage redwood tree stands sentinel over the yard.
A passive environmental approach has been used throughout the home, including its location on the lot, natural ventilation system and radiant heated hardwood floors. Stunning views are afforded by every room through the expansive windows. To complete the first floor, a media room (equipped with blackout curtains) can be used as a flexible space perfect for an office, guest room, workout room or studio.
Upstairs, accessible by two staircases, are two bedrooms on either end of the home. Built in cabinetry and shelving provide an artistic element to the space. A railing along the catwalk is framed by stainless steel and wood is filled with panels of glass to maximize the natural light and views.
The master bedroom includes a private balcony patio, walk-in closet, secondary closet and a dressing space with built-in drawers. A quartz dual vanity, and a stall shower is framed by taupe stone tile inset with mini subway glass tiles.
The second floor includes a spacious open office with a long work space overlooking the first floor. A double-wide pocket door leads to a second en-suite bedroom with garden views and bath with a large tub/shower with brown and white tile and a stainless-steel vanity.
Spectacular one-of-a-kind gem located in the heart of downtown Palo alto just blocks to University Avenue.
