This original Eichler in Palo Alto Hills sits in an amazing setting amongst old growth. It’s kept in its original condition, let’s enjoy this beauty.

The house is done in the combo of brown and cream completely, which is a warming up and classic color scheme. All the furniture is done in the same style and colors and it helps the house become a unity the transition between the spaces is seamless.

The main layout is an open space, which includes a living space, a bedroom, a dining room and a kitchen though you may see some glass space dividers installed to make the areas more private yet united. The main zone is taken by a large and elegant piano and a chic sitting zone with luxurious chairs and a coffee table.  What I like most of all is the abundance of natural light, which is seldom seen in gable roof houses – it’s achieved with large skylights.

The living room is united with a kitchen and dining space, there’s a glazed wall, a fireplace clad with brick and lots of refined furniture, which perfectly echoes with the furniture in the rest of the spaces. The master bedroom features comfy furniture and a partly glazed wall to keep some privacy.

The outdoor space features several terraces on different sides of the house and some greenery that covers up the walls climbing up – this is a creative take on potted greenery and flowers that are usually seen here and there.
