Description :

3527 Arbutus Avenue, Palo Alto   (Palo Verde neighborhood)

A gem of a home in a jewel of a neighborhood! This one-owner, Eichler-built home is your opportunity to enjoy the casual indoor-outdoor architecture popularized in the 50’s and 60’s.  This home exhibits hallmarks of the Eichler design – with a garage facing the street, living areas opening toward the rear, exposed beam ceilings, natural wood walls and expanses of plate glass.


A sunny atrium-style entrance invites guests to linger outside upon arriving, and “walls of glass” throughout the house invite insiders to enjoy the outdoors  Well-cared for natural wood walls and gleaming oak floors provide a backdrop for many styles of décor.


In 1980 the owners added a greenhouse with passive solar features – a forward-thinking concept for that time – and it still appears to be functional for plants and passive heat.


In addition to generous interior closet space, a large, attached garage has room for two cars plus storage. Brick and concrete patio areas accommodate outdoor furniture and afford recreation space.  Mature landscaping surrounds the property and includes a utility area alongside the garage.


Today, as in 1957, Palo Alto brags about its schools, shopping, cultural and recreational facilities—all within easy reach of this special home.
