Next project! 3727 La Donna in Barron Park, Palo Alto

After a 4 year hiatus chasing rug rats around Palo Alto it's time to start building and blogging again!
This next project is another collaboration with builder James Witt and architect Steve Simpson. We would've started sooner but it took us over a year and thousands of dollars in legal fees to convince the city to let us buy and build on the empty lot. Long story! We'll save the details for a future post entitled, Subdividing property in Palo Alto...NOT for the faint of heart.

Now that we have the go ahead, the construction is moving along at a fast pace. We expect the house will be completed and available for purchase in early 2019. Here are the details:

3727 La Donna Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94306
Home: 3278 sq ft with attached garage
5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms
Lot: 8430 sq ft

It's a Steve Simpson design, so of course it'll be gorgeous.
I'll be documenting the build here on HomeCrunch. Send an email to us if you're interested in being notified when it's ready for purchase...the last house sold before we were able to list it on the market so this time we're creating an insider's list to give our followers an early heads up. By the way, while I've been on a break, James has not. Check out a couple of the most recent homes he's built, they're amazing! This one sold off-market and this one was a custom design.

Laying the foundation.

Available in early 2019! Email us to get on the insider's list.
