This ageless Greek Revival is one of the few Palo Alto grand estates *Befitting its stature, the public rooms and many of the family spaces are of uncommon scale and height *The foyer alone is a most impressive entry and sets the tone for the entire home *You will find spaces to accommodate a myriad of family activities: relaxation, work, exercise, media, study, au pair, wine storage and play *The private outdoor setting harmonizes with the wrap-around front porch and is enhanced by, roses galore and majestic trees *House + basement = 9,265 sf *There is opportunity to develop the unfinished basement (not in flood zone) and purchase the adjacent property at 1007 Forest Court to expand the grounds to a total of 22,600 sf. (Current 3/2 home at 1007 could be an investment, part of a family compound or replaced with cottage, pool, flower gardens, vineyard, and other amenities.) *1001 Forest is a remarkable home in a special location blocks away from Downtown *A rare opportunity
