Location: Palo Alto, California
Located in Palo Alto, the leafy Silicon Valley town filled with Stanford professors and tech elites, this 1930-built Mediterranean Revival house has been drastically renovated to present the sort of indoor-outdoor experience found in spectacular new, modern homes built around the world. After the 2010 remodel and expansion, the 6,458-square-foot residence has got the "party in the back" game down pat: the sleek, contemporary rear kitchen and dining area open up to the verdant yard and pool via a rad folding glass wall, which retracts upwards using aircraft hangar technology.
The listing leaves out photos of the home's six bedrooms, but does offer a peek into some of other spaces, including a formal living room, dining room, and hallway with a floating, glass-enclosed staircase. These spaces are all embedded with additional contemporary touches like radiant-heated floors and custom lighting designed for showcasing art.
