Designed by the duo of A. Quincy Jones and Frederick Emmons for Joseph Eichler in 1955, this 1,639-square-foot four bedroom in Palo Alto recently underwent a complete remodel but still remains true to the period.
The rectilinear structure is clad in grey-painted wood, with an interior entryway wall repeating the pattern, but in white. The open-plan living room features hefty ceiling beams, floor-to-ceiling backyard-framing windows, and a brick hearth. A sparkling kitchen with white lacquer cabinetry, as well as a formal sitting room, are situated right behind it.
As for other updates, the bathrooms have been redone, while the cork flooring, dual pane windows, and roof are all new. The backyard also features a new cement patio for year-’round entertaining. Located at 967 Oregon Avenue in North Palo Alto, it’s asking $2,399,000.
