Thanks very much to Burbed reader Wendie for this palatial pad in Palo Alto! And unlike almost every other property in Palo Alto, this one’s still for sale despite this my sitting on it since April. Remember, there is nothing wrong with any house that price cannot fix. And by those standards, this house is definitely a fixer.

What an awful kitchen!
For a 9M dollar house, couldn’t they have AT LEAST upgraded the kitchen counter tops? Amazingly crappy kitchen for 9M!
No, no, no, Wendie, this is an amazing vintage kitchen for 9M! After all, this is Palo Alto. What would be a problem in any other listing just automagically converts that bug into a feature. Weird countertops? More awesomeness.
And talk about convenience! Look where this house is located!
Right next to East Palo Alto! This home is guaranteed to be the very first place those delightful scamps will visit for a few good-natured pranks when hijinks ensue!
