My creative sister, Vicki Petulla of The Creeping Fig, was once again asked to lend her garden talents to this year’s Los Gatos/Saratoga Summit League Home Tour. As usual, I trailed along to help her. The Summit League does not allow the public to photograph these homes, so it was my good fortune that when I was photographing Vicki’s work, the homeowner asked if I could photograph the rest of the house. With their permission, I thought I would share this beautiful and historic home with all of you.
This stunning historic Arts and Crafts home, circa 1890’s, is owned by the Krebs who purchased the property in 1985. What started as a summer home has grown into 10,000 sq. ft. and includes the likes of four bedrooms, nine bathrooms, formal library, wine cellar, exercise room, nine fireplaces, all the standard rooms, and of course who doesn’t need a ballroom in their home!
Each room was decorated by a different designer, and each did a fabulous job.
