Menlo Park, like its nearby neighbors, is having a bit of a real estate run right now. Fortunately, some properties have that certain je ne sais pas that put them on our front page no matter how much Facebook employees want to buy a house. Today’s featured facade, foisted upon us by Burbed reader peninsula.man, punctuates this perfectly. Please proceed.

And here’s what the P-Man himself has to say about this place:
Can not wait to live next to pizza hut! for just over half a million
More like almost half again over half a million. You’ve been living on the Peninsula too long if $199,000 isn’t worth mentioning in a home price.
More importantly, these photos suggest that this not-quite-vintage-enough-to-qualify-for-the-old-house-tag listing has had a few upgrades put in recently. Very recently. Because let’s have a look at the last time this place went pending.

Someone had the cash, as the place went pending in eleven days. Now look what they did to it! This time it went pending in only seven days.
Whoops, according to Zillow it went pending in seven days after the $76,000 price reduction five weeks after the $50,000 price reduction which was a month after this place was first listed for an eye-popping $825,000.
Where the heck do they think they are, Mountain View? Bunus: House is not actually next to Pizza Hut.
You can clearly see there is a Quik-Stop in the way. Be sure to check out the Streetview so you can appreciate this location, location, location!
Score! Trash bins and DHO!
