Our home

We have a lovely, modern home in Palo Alto, California, just 50 km south of San Francisco. Our home was completely remodeled by a very artistic architect. The house has lovely curves, a lot of glass, and natural materials: a copper barrel roof, slate floors and chimney. A local artist incorporated her metal sculptures into the exterior of the home and gate. The well-equipped kitchen is one of the best rooms in the house because Ram's passion is cooking. It looks out at the pool and garden. The master bath has a sauna and a wonderful, large slate shower with a large window to the garden. The house is very open with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. We have a grand piano in the house. We have a second home up in the Sierra Mountains in Twain Harte with a semi-private lake. We also have a large estate with a 11,000 sq. ft. home in Bangalore, India.
