Every now and then you come across a home that’s just enchanting and has a story that’s simply begging to be told.  Suzie Provo — friend, colleague, and a top local agent — had one such property on tour this morning:  730 Seale in Palo Alto.

Come with me as we take a walking photo tour…

The au pair cottage!  This is where I’d like to live

…and the kitchen…


…the upstairs bedroom…


…walk through a hallway, and VOILA you’re back in the main home.  You arrive in another bedroom, this one with a fireplace…

Open this weekend.

The specs:  ~4400 sq ft.  ~11400 sq ft lot.  5 bedrooms (honestly, I’m not sure Suzie’s found all of them yet!) and 4+ bathrooms.

Yours for $3,695,000…

    I lived in this home from age 11 until after I had graduated from Stanford. My parents bought it in 1950 for $33,000 from the original owner, a Mr. Arro (not sure of the spelling), who was a builder of custom homes in the area. He was Finnish, as was my father. It was a lovely home to grow up in! I’m glad to see it remains essentially unchanged in main structure. When I lived there, the kitchen was terribly old fashioned and awkward, but the dining room and living room were lovely, much as they are now. The living room fireplace used to have bookcases flanking it. I’m coming to P.A. for my 50th High School reunion in October, and if the house is on the market, would it be possible to see it? I couldn’t afford it, of course, but I would love to see it again.
