This is a classic Mackay California Modernist home with architecture by Anshen and Allen. Located in Ross Park in South Palo Alto, this updated original home showcases open, flowing spaces, beamed and paneled vaulted ceilings, and expansive use of glass for natural light, similar to an Eichler home. Numerous updates include new wood flooring and new carpet, freshly painted interiors, and updated windows and glass doors. Mackay homes have raised foundations and forced-air heating. The home begins with a signature gated garden courtyard providing complete privacy and seclusion from the street. The large backyard, finished with synthetic lawn, offers even more space for play, entertaining, and gardening. The one-level floor plan includes 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, a spacious living room, and a large eat-in kitchen. The primary bedroom suite overlooks the front courtyard, and one bedroom, located off the kitchen, is perfect for a home office if needed. There is an attached 2-car garage with outside entry via covered walkway in the courtyard. The location is ideal close to parks, shops, commute routes, and numerous community centers, as well as acclaimed Palo Alto schools.
