From the above link: 567 Melville Avenue Palo Alto Club,
Darsie Residence, Ernest Coxhead, architect; L.S. Bean, builder
This link Web Link says that it's a private club & mentions soccer.
I've been curious about it for a long time. I have memories of being in a large house for some type of organized kids' event as a kid. In later years, when I'd cycle by it, I connected that house to those memories, but could be mistaken that the event happened there.
Maybe it's a private club where important types meet up w/local spooks or the gov't & corporate variety? At least, that's what I envision. There's a phone #, btw.
