Abigail Ahrens, who runs – and lives at – Enchanté Boutique Hotel, brought her love of French design to the property’s 19 guest rooms and her own top-floor living quarters.
Under a Mansard roof in downtown Los Altos, hotel guests relax in their French-infused rooms, read by the fireplace in the cozy library or, in the bistro, nibble pastries flown in from Paris. And proprietor Abigail Ahrens resides – literally – under the rooftop.
Now in her 48th year in the real estate business, Ahrens, owner of The Abigail Co., has long had a penchant for designing and development. She was also part of a partnership that owned an antique store in Los Gatos and a store for high-end interiors – Hilary Thatz at Stanford Shopping Center.
