Many Palo Alto luxury home buyers include the following criteria in their search: Large lot and house, turnkey quality, and close proximity to downtown. 1039 University clearly reflects these criteria. The lot is 20,000 sq ft. The home has nearly 6,000 sq ft. Construction took four years, with completion in 2004. The result reflects a seamless blend of technology and stunning design elements. Lutron lighting, radiant heat throughout, and a disappearing wall of glass in the great room are a few of the features highlighting the contemporary feel. The award-winning grounds are enhanced by a stunning swimming pool and outdoor kitchen, dramatic water features, and an exquisite secret garden. The unexpectedly quiet location is due to an engineered front wall, sound resistant insulation and custom Bend River windows. 1039 University offers a rare opportunity for the buyer looking for a state of the art home on a large lot located a mere five blocks from the vibrancy of downtown Palo Alto.
