An opportunity unlike any other, intertwining the rich history of Los Altos Hills with innovative design and vision of the future. Own the land and studio once home to the leading literature teacher of his generation, and write your own novel at the same time! This remarkable development offers a modern masterpiece and treasured piece of history. The existing historical Eichler-style studio of approximately 512 square feet adds distinction to the estate which was built personally by the founder of Stanford’s Creative Writing Program and Pulitzer Prize winner, Wallace Stegner, who famously dubbed Los Altos Hills, “God’s Little Acre.” It was here where he penned many of his masterpieces including the famous Angle of Repose. Many consider Stegner to be “the leading teacher of writing in his generation”. The studio may be remodeled to become a detached study, guest house or library. Simultaneously, enjoy selecting finishes for the brilliant modern estate which stands atop a magnificent view lot on a private and tranquil approximately 2.49 acre setting, surrounded by stunning Hill and Bay views and overlooking Silicon Valley, close to the town’s Pathway system that connects 85 miles of trails and off-road paths for nature lovers to appreciate. The location is ideal, minutes to downtown Los Altos, Palo Alto Hills Country Club, with Sand Hill and Silicon Valley Tech Centers within proximity.
