              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: The original owner built several houses in the neighborhood. He kept the biggest lot for himself. We continue to make many updates to improve this one-of-a-kind beauty. This is an old house and does have it's quirks! About San Carlos: It is a tiny town - less than 6 square miles. After WWII, San Carlos experienced it's first growth spurts, becoming a popular suburban destination. In 1944, Dalmo Victor established the city's first large electronics plant, followed soon by Eitel McCullough. Establishment of these two firms quadrupled the population. We are now home to several technology companies, as well as many biotech and medical instrumentation firms. San Carlos is the northern end of Silicon Valley. Current population: 28,406

              Why the Owner Chose Palo Alto:
              San Carlos is called 'The City of Good Living' ... come and find out why!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The climate here is ideal ... a little south of the fog, so it's usually sunny ... close enough to the coast to stay cool in the summer. Nice quiet street, yet close to everything in the Bay Area. Great walkable location... convenience abounds! Plenty of room to relax. Great home for entertaining guests. Large front lawns with fruit trees. Huge backyard with in-ground swimming pool.
