    Enchanting curb appeal with a newly painted black-and-white palette, updated interiors, and a sought-after location in the Las Lomitas School District – this property has it all! Beginning with an inviting covered porch, the home opens to a one-level floor plan unified by refinished hardwood floors in most rooms. The kitchen is beautifully remodeled and there are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, including a master suite. The rear yard is ever-so-private and includes a new paver stone driveway that doubles as added patio/play space. Topping it all off is the home’s location, just blocks to restaurants and cafes on the Alameda, and only minutes to downtown Menlo Park as well as Sand Hill Road venture capital centers. This is truly a wonderful place to call home!

    Summary of the home

    Menlo Park Community Information

    Menlo Park is the best kept secret in the Bay Area. Tucked amidst its more well-known neighbor Palo Alto and affluent Atherton, it sits right between San Francisco and San Jose in the heart of the Peninsula. It holds fast to its small-town character, having almost the same population for decades, while it offers a sophisticated and contemporary lifestyle. Being adjacent to Stanford University only enhances that academic atmosphere, as well as offering many sporting and cultural events to the community. Stanford's influence extends also to the business arena, making Menlo Park the home to a preponderance of venture capital firms, SRI International, and many professional services. In fact, the international giant Google was born in a Menlo Park garage in 1998. The downtown area around Santa Cruz Avenue boasts charming restaurants, unique boutiques, and stores, while the world-class Stanford Shopping Center is only blocks away. The town's friendly civic social hub is the popular Cafe Borrone, next to historic Kepler's Books. Perhaps most alluring of all are the beautiful, tree-dotted neighborhoods in every nook and cranny of the city. There is much to love about Menlo Park.
