Lush gardens of a Palo Alto historic home

Posted on Mon, 8 Jun 2020 by KiM

I am head over heels in love with the landscape design of this California home. The bold orange/red painted exterior accents really make everything pop and add a modern touch. Lush gardens hug this 1905 national historic register home in Palo Alto’s Professorville neighborhood. Vibrant homeowners wanted to create a landscape that engaged the neighborhood and featured layered gardens with a Bay Area sensibility. The landscape is now defined by a series of outdoor “rooms”, with flexibility for intimate family gatherings and large social events. Water-use is concentrated in the public facing areas of the site. Highlights include custom recirculating water features, hand-made clinker brick walls, a charming vegetable garden with custom chicken coop and mature perimeter plantings. Designed by Boxleaf Design.

the red/orange saves the house from looking like a tirol themed disney building.

Gorgeous home, and the outdoor area is sublime! And when I saw that front door ajar, I really thought we were going to get a peek inside! haha
