Menlo Park house description

This contemporary home is ideally located in Menlo Park on the peninsula and highly suited for a family or couple planning to vacation or work in the Palo Alto/Stanford area. A clean and spacious 2900 sq ft home on 1/3 acre – it features a fully-equipped, modern kitchen & great room combo. Relax in the newly remodeled master bath with his/her dual shower, heated floors and Jacuzzi tub. The consistently nice weather lets guests enjoy a morning cup of coffee while listening to the birds in the trees and/or enjoy a backyard BBQ any night. The back deck with long comfy couches is a new feature, and our current favorite! Children will love the outdoor play area that features an enclosed trampoline, play house and a play structure with tree house, swings and slide. If work you must, then do it in the equipped home office with a view to the great outdoors. The home is an easy 5-10 minutes' walk to 3 parks with playgrounds, an 8 min walk to the local shopping center and restaurants, and a 5 min drive (10 min bike ride) to the Stanford campus. Take a day trip to San Francisco to ride the trolley cars and indulge in famous Ghirardelli chocolate or visit the award winning wine country of Napa Valley just 90 minutes away. Nature enthusiasts and athletic types will enjoy the many hikes and bike trails within 15 minutes' drive, including the Stanford Dish, Windy Hill, Arastradero Preserve and the redwood forest Wunderlich Park.

          Car: Recommended

          Our house is a 1 minute walk to a playground, basketball courts, and a beautiful open green field. 5 minutes of walking gets you to the Dutch Goose, a famous Stanford hangout, and other local restaurants and bars. Our neighborhood shopping center with supermarket, Starbucks, WildBerry Yogurt and other shops and restaurants is 10 minutes' walk away. Walk for 15 minutes the other direction and you are on the Stanford campus. Head out the door on walks in the hills with gorgeous views, and fantastic bike rides. Everywhere you go you'll see a wide variety of trees and greenery. We love it here, and think you will too!

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2004

          About the owner: We're a family of 4, including 2 kids ages 10 and 11. Both husband and wife attended Stanford, and somehow ended up back here -- just a stone's throw away. We love our home -- it's a great place for playing, entertaining and relaxing. It's on a private cul de sac with lots of greenery and nature. Our area is fantastic -- perfect for walking, hiking, biking and swimming and sports, it feels like a country vacation -- and yet it's just a short drive to San Francisco. We hope you'll love staying here as much as we do!
