Property Description

Originally constructed in 1899, this beautiful Arts & Crafts home underwent a full restoration and addition completed in 2007. As one of the first standing homes in the area, 959 Waverley has served as a staple in the Professorville community for over 110 years. Beautiful architecture, timeless finishes and a restoration of the original redwood and other original details throughout make this a rare find and a prized jewel of the coveted Professorville district.

With a rich history, 959 Waverley St was the boyhood home of William Shockley. His father was a mining engineering professor at Stanford. William Shockley attended CalTech and after graduation founded Fairchild Semiconductor. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics for the transistor. He later founded Intel with the help of four others. In 2007, this home was on the Palo Alto Stanford Historic Society's Tour of Historic Homess
