So much to love about this Palo Alto home—from the unpainted original old growth redwood (milled from nearby Redwood City) to its private and verdant surroundings—that it’s almost enough to make you want to leave the city for good. Provided, of course, you have money to burn.

Featuring three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 2,014 square feet, 240 Kellogg Avenue has been restored to its 1911 roots care of its third and current owner. Restored details include clear-heart redwood beams, ceiling, paneling, fir floors, and more.

Other highlights include a clinker brick fireplace, built-in cabinetry, and a 25-pane rolling door that separates the living room into two large rooms.

The nearly century-old home has also been expanded, with the attic renovated into a second living room and second dining space.

Also of note, the yard comes with stone patios, water features, illuminated landscaping. Overall, an oasis of warmth in the ruthless heart of Silicon Valley.

Asking is $3,988,000, listed through Carol Carnevale and Nicole Aron of Compass.

Living room with dark, rich wood paneling on the floors, walls, and ceiling. Exposed beams can also be seen on the ceiling. A wall of windows at the end of the room lets in natural light.
