Thanks to Burbed reader Nate for this find. Here’s part 2 of his post:

Sure, it’s a couple years older but it makes that up with it’s sheer opulence.  Make sure they include those curtains with the sale!  It’s already been marked down $300k from it’s original asking price from January 2009 – so act soon. 

And if you don’t want to dirty the kitchen by actually cooking in it, there’s a great everyday eatery just steps away – Boston Market!  Enjoy your rotisserie chicken or meatloaf under that beautiful chandelier – but be sure to play some classical music lest you be bothered by the sounds of El Camino traffic.

What’s that?  You want the benefits of having a commercial establishment as a neighbor but you also want to live in a cul de sac?  Tall order, my friend, but you’re in luck. [Stay tuned for the conclusion tomorrow!]

    1. How do they have an assessment of only $609k when this place was built four five years ago? Seems the valuation should have been a tad higher if they were adjusting to market for the rebuild.

    2. I think my grandmother would have liked the decor in this place.

    3. bwahahaha – they originally listed this place for $1.8M a year and a half ago.

  2. Andrew Says:

    close to “TRANSFORTATION” (sic)

    The pricing history on this house is the very definition of “chasing the market down”.

    94306 – Not Real Palo Alto™.

    What’s next? A house by Safeway in midtown (94303)?

  5. Alex Says:

    *yawn* You peeps bore me. Find me some redhead-asian action. Or bring that Faux Estater back on so I can beat him like a stepchild LOL

  6. Real Estater Says:

    94306 is Palo Alto alright, but the Ventura neighborhood of 94306 is not “real Palo Alto”. Being sandwiched between El Camino and the Train tracks, with industrial buildings nearby, and a diverse ethnic mix (for Palo Alto anyways), this area does not have most of the qualities that make up the Palo Alto atmosphere. There is no wonder this is consistently the lowest priced area in Palo Alto.

    You can’t be my stepfather. Just look at the results. I have a trophy wife. You are still unable to find a redhead-asian. You are definitely at the “low end of the spectrum”.

    …a diverse ethnic mix (for Palo Alto anyways), this area does not have most of the qualities that make up the Palo Alto atmosphere. There is no wonder this is consistently the lowest priced area in Palo Alto.

    Isn’t diversity one of the reasons the RBA is special?

    Your comment sounds like you’re channeling Orville Hubbard. So much for the “Bay Area spirit.”

  10. Petsmart groomer Says:

    Come on, he’s trolling again, you should know better.

  11. nomadic Says:

    Nah, I think RE believes most of the stuff he writes. He just isn’t very tactful. PA even has private parks like Dearborn had.

  12. madhaus Says:

    What is “diverse for Palo Alto,” anyway? Would that include redhead-Asian action?

    So 94306 is Not Real Palo Alto™? You’re right, Groomer, but not for the reason you think.

    It means only one thing: that specific neighborhood has “real diverse ethnic mix”. Rest of the Palo Alto is full of snobs and wannabe wealthy people – like Real Estater.

  14. SEA Says:

    I’m adding another one to the “real” list:

    “real Palo Alto”

    It’s my guess that real Palo Alto is a subset of the RBA.

  15. madhaus Says:

    94306 is Not Real Palo Alto™, but it’s Real Something Else. Heh heh.

  16. madhaus Says:

    Breaking News: Their Future Is Now just cracked the three million dollar mark, and have put off, for at least one more year, any teacher layoffs in Cupertino School District.

    As a CUSD resident, I am delighted that teachers keep their jobs and class sizes won’t increase to 30 from 20 in grades K-3. As a Californian, I disgusted by how little is given to education, and the sooner we get rid of Prop 13 and all its disgusting add-on exemptions for veterans’ grandchildrens’ pet groomers, the better. And as a human being, I shudder for all the other school districts who don’t have the connections, the talent, and the wealth to pull off a fundraising campaign from start to finish in 2 months.

    In the words of a popular seventies poster,

    It will be a great day when schools get all the money they need, and the Air Force has to hold a bake sale to buy a bomber.

  17. anon Says:

    palo alto – “real” or not – is not in the RBA

  18. Insecure Techie Says:

    An don’t forget Not Real 94301™. And we already discussed about a property at Not Real 94301™.
