Stately 1907 Colonial Revival home on large corner lot in Santa Clara’s Old Quad neighborhood. This unique home features a transitional architecture which notes lovely transom windows indicative of Queen Anne style and beautifully grouped porch columns which appear Neo-Classical. Entering from the covered front porch, into a formal foyer, a formal dining room, with built-in china hutch, is to the right and a living room with fireplace is to the left. This special home has an office through sliding pocket doors off the living room. This office has a separate exterior entrance and is said to have been an office for a practicing doctor originally. Today it is a great home office, if working from home. Between the kitchen and dining room is a breakfast room, which could be used as such or converted into a butler’s pantry. The functional kitchen features a gas range. A full bath and laundry room with washer and dryer are on the first floor. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a full hall bath with a clawfoot tub. One bedroom features a reading alcove with a view over the front yard.

Home features beautiful original moldings and pocket doors. The property has a detached garage and rear yard. This home would welcome someone to restore it to its’ original elegance.
