One of Palo Alto’s most sought-after neighborhoods is Crescent Park – in fact it is the Crown Jewel of Palo Alto. This neighborhood is home to many amazingly beautiful mansions which define classic beauty, elegance, prestige and old wealth along the San Francisco Peninsula. Pre-World War II homes divide up three distinct sections of Crescent Park’s Magnolia-lined streets; East of Middlefield Road, Prime Crescent Park, and Crescent Park Addition. This neighborhood has many different architectural styles all of which are on display in each section of Crescent Park. Just east of downtown are bungalows which began sprouting up in the early 1900s through the 1920s. Many of these bungalows show architectural details and other craftsmen laid surprises not found in modern residential construction. Tudors, Spanish Colonials, Spanish Revivals, and Monterey Colonials can be found throughout all sections of Crescent Park. To appreciate all of the architecture one must just venture street-by-street, block-by-block.
