City Lofts – modern 3-level townhome in the heart of downtown Palo Alto, accessed by your own private elevator. Soaring top-floor ‘great’ room with walls of windows opening to a large roof deck. Ground floor suite with kitchenette, full bath and separate entry. Powered by solar panels. Designed by David Solnick Price includes most furnishings.

These days, people want everything to be high tech. Thanks to Burbed reader Herve for this high tech find. Wow… $3.95M! Here’s a question: how much of that is due to the private elevator and solar panels? And why does this house have a private elevator anyway if you’re trying to be green?

So many questions, so much price. This house is definitely fit for a newly minted Tesla millionaire!

    Sweet location. Too bad that it’s a shitty view for that kind of money.

  2. Alex Says:

    For that much money, I’d buy a place with a real view in Sausalito or Tiburon.

    The only view you get in downtown Palo Alto is of college students barfing on their way home from the bars.

    At that price tag for a TOWNHOUSE, you’d think you’re in New York, Paris, or Milan, but no it’s Palo Alto.

  4. madhaus Says:

    I thought we all agreed not to discuss Palo Alto anymore.

    “We” doesn’t include burbed. Or “Burbed reader Herve.”

    “We” doesn’t include burbed. Or “Burbed reader Herve.”

    It also excludes someone with certain combination of “diploma, address and mate” and that address has certain combination of “home, location, and lot size”.

    There has to be more left to make fun of in bay area real estate than the-place-whose-name-shall-not-be-uttered.

    Here’s one: http://www.redfin.com/CA/Belmont/2904-San-Juan-Blvd-94002/home/1257449

    …original everything. not remodeled not updated…

    Well, that’s crystal clear. What a bargain for just $999/sf – in Belmont! At first glance, you might think that .42 acres might be worth the price but take a look at the third pic. How much do you suppose is usable land?

  9. sonarrat Says:

    There is occasionally some very cheap land to be had in Belmont, if you have a 4×4 and a strong stomach.

  10. madhaus Says:

    Right side of Alameda de las Pulgas, wrong side of San Juan.

  11. Mole Man Says:

    This townhouse loft thing is swank, but kind of impractical and very out of place. My guess is it is worth $1.8 tops, but it might take a while to get back down there given the current wishing price. Keep flushing!

  12. Alex Says:

    1.8 million for this? Are you friggin kidding me?! 1.2 tops. Remember, the money is in the land :p

  13. AlexGroomer Says:

    Reduced to $3,495,000.
