Floor Plans




Amidst the hustle of suburban life in Palo Alto, rests quiet and semi-rural Barron Park. If you have been thinking of a property in the hills, but didn't want to sacrifice the proximity to local amenities and schools, 1099 Los Robles offers you the best of both worlds. This is your opportunity to own a rural retreat offering the utmost in privacy while just being moments away from parks, biking/walking paths, shopping and top rated schools. Its premier location at the end of a cul-de-sac provides no through traffic, while the adjacent bike path through Bol Park easily connects you to Gunn High School, parks, and the nearby business centers on Page Mill Road and Stanford University. In addition, everyday leisurely strolls along the bike path with children or dogs are just steps outside your front door. 

Perhaps two of the best-known residents who have contributed much to the "uniqueness" and charm of the local neighborhood are Perry and Jenny, the city's "mascot" donkeys. Generations of donkeys have lived in the neighborhood since the 1930s when Josina and Cornelis Bol cared for a small herd on their property. In later years, neighbors helped fund the creation of Bol Park where today's beloved Barron Park donkeys live and can be fed and visited on Sundays.

Whether you are seeking a harmonious retreat or want to be moments away from all the action, this one-of-a-kind property in a coveted setting has something to offer for everyone.
