Mid-Century Classic With An Enviable Stanford Campus Location


729 Tolman Drive, Stanford


Perfectly located on the Stanford campus at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this home presents sleek mid-century modern style with a two-level floor plan. The interiors exude a fresh, bright ambiance designed for indoor/outdoor living. A spacious entry hall connects the main rooms each with high ceilings, oversized windows and sliding glass doors inviting great natural light. An extra-large fully screened-in porch is ideal for year-round enjoyment while two upstairs partially covered porches offer outdoor living connected to two of the home’s four bedrooms, including the primary suite. A dedicated office with significant library space is perfect for the Stanford lifestyle and today’s work-from-home needs. All around, low-maintenance, drought-tolerant grounds surround the home with privacy and provide ample space for an organic garden, fruit trees and/or play areas. This home is just one block from acclaimed Nixon Elementary School, offers an easy connection to the pathways throughout the Stanford campus and is one-half mile to the “Dish” hiking trailhead entrance.  Homes on the Stanford Campus are available to eligible Stanford faculty only.

Palo Alto has a lot to offer its residents, including tree-lined streets, a thriving downtown, a plethora of parks and open space for recreation, and excellent public schools. The city’s location next to the Stanford University campus gives residents easy access to lectures, extension courses, and other educational opportunities. The city of about 66,000 incorporated in 1894 and got its name from a 1,000-year-old redwood tree along San Francisquito Creek. Palo Alto residents are highly educated, with nearly 80 percent of those 25 and older holding at least a bachelor’s degree, according to 2013 United States Census Bureau estimates. Open-space areas account for nearly one-third of the approximately 25-square-mile city, which boasts more than 30 municipal parks. The city has one of the most active downtowns on the Peninsula, and an array of restaurants and shops line University Avenue and California Avenue. The Stanford Shopping Center is also a popular destination for retail and dining. Free parking is available in municipal lots downtown.
Numerous tech companies are headquartered in Palo Alto. Many prominent web businesses and brands, such as Facebook, Pinterest, and PayPal, got their start in the city.
