This 1900 Queen Anne Victorian, located in the tony Crescent Park neighborhood of Palo Alto, lands on the market for a cool $5,488,000.
Featuring four bedrooms, three and one half bathrooms, and 4,516 square feet, 1023 Forest Avenue offers much in the way of curb appeal care of a well-maintained period facade. From the sky blue paint job and turrets to the veranda and curved windows, this home oozes Victorian charm.
But once inside you’ll find a blend of contemporary updates added to the home’s original look. The kitchen and bathrooms have all been updated, replete with the requisite white soaking tub and marble flooring seen in countless renovations. But the hardwood flooring, staircase banister (clock that stunning carved rail), coved ceilings, embossed wall coverings, and a stained-glass window treatment all harken back to the days of yore.
The third floor has been transformed into something different entirely, a room reminiscent of a gastro pub with a bar, soaring ceilings, and dark wood paneling galore. Something for almost every taste.
