Maximizing Space and Style: The Stunning New California Modern Home in Palo Alto

The California Modern project in Palo Alto was a true labor of love for the team at Renew Connections Remodel. The goal was to take a small, 450 square foot one bed, one bath house on a 5000 square foot lot and turn it into a luxurious, modern home that maximized the usage of the lot. The team achieved this goal by replacing the existing structure with one the maximum size permitted by building codes.

One of the biggest challenges faced during the planning and permitting process was the pushback received from neighbors over potential privacy concerns of a two-story home. However, the team was able to navigate these concerns and ultimately build a one-story home that not only respected the neighbors' privacy but exceeded their expectations.

The team's focus on natural lighting and indoor/outdoor living is evident throughout the home. The dramatic entry features high ceilings, multiple windows, a gorgeous modern staircase, and skylights to amplify natural light and open space. 

The ground floor features a master suite and bedroom suite. The generous open space features high-ceilings, ample natural light, a gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances including 48” Wolf Range, Sub-Zero Fridge, and Wolf Microwave Drawer. 

The final design

Beautiful Cesar Stone countertops and an oversized island, and La Cantina panoramic window opens the wall to the beautiful landscaped yard with a large deck for dining al fresco.

The lower level of the home is just as impressive, featuring an entertainment room, wine storage room, wet bar, 3 en-suite bedrooms, half bath, walk-out patio, and ample natural light. All rooms and areas are move-in ready and pre-wired.

Located in the highly coveted Barron Park neighborhood, the California Modern is a true gem and a testament to the team's skill and dedication.
