Urbanite Family Finds Room To Grow in Portola Valley Ranch House

The Axe family has a familiar story: An urban-dwelling couple with young children can no longer resist the urge to flee the city for greener pastures (or simply a fabulous backyard). “We loved living in San Francisco, but with two kids and a third on the way, we knew it was time to move on and give ourselves some room to grow,” says Cindy Axe. She and her husband, Brian, found a nondescript 1960s ranch house set on a ridge in Portola Valley.
