                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: We are a family of four living in Palo Alto, CA... we have a beautiful brand new home that we rent out to individuals or families that are looking for a place to call home rather than 4 walls in a stuffy hotel. I work nearby in Mountain View as a Partner Technology Manager. My wife looks after our beautiful 2 children 8 and 10 years old. We are both from Toronto Canada and have lived in Silicon Valley for 13 years. If you have any questions about Canada and making the move to the area, we can help! We are a very active family and love the outdoors. Since I do triathlons, I can share with you the best cycling and running routes in the area. I also love snowboarding, so if you would like to learn the best of what Lake Tahoe ski resorts can offer, I can provide suggestions! Since both of our children have severe environmental allergies, we believe in whole and healthy living and we strive to eliminate chemicals from our daily living. We eat only Organic foods and use only all Natural cleaning products. I have been a vegetarian for my entire life! We have travelled extensively throughout United Kingdom, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Turkey, Italy, Austria, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Canada, and the United States. My life motto: 'Live each day as if it were your last'

                  Why the Owner Chose Palo Alto:
                  When we first moved to California in 2000, we lived in Mountain View. Since that time, we have moved to San Jose and Santa Clara. What has brought us back to Mountain View, is the tranquility, beauty, and safe neighborhood with all the places we shop often within a 5 minute drive (Target, Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Safeway, Costco, REI, Best Buy, and Bed Bath and Beyond). Working in High-Tech, we love the convenience of this centrally located home that is essentially in the heart of Silicon Valley. From this location, it is an easy and fast 'reverse commute' to most companies including Google, Apple, Facebook, Cisco, LinkedIn, VMware. Ultimately, however, we bought this as an investment for our children. The house is located in the Los Altos High School district which was rated one of the top High Schools in the country! We plan on moving into this property in a few years.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We are a very active family, and we love the proximity to nature trails and bike paths that are within 2 miles. I love biking, running, and swimming, and this area has all of these recreational activities available. We also love going to restaurants, and their is a very broad range of top dining experiences that are within 5 miles. There is the beauty of downtown Palo Alto and the bustling downtown Mountain View to discover amazing places to eat. We love that you are living an urban area but yet with the calm, tranquility, and beauty that Palo Alto and Mountain View have to offer!
