Perfect setting for anyone???s dream home. This sunny, flat lot is located in a serene and rustic environment with mature Oak and Redwood trees. The numerous luxury properties that already exist in the neighborhood make this an ideal place to build a quality home. A perfect lot in a great neighborhood – don???t miss this exceptional opportunity! The Property is being sold as land value only.

Holy cow! .43 acres! That’s a huge amount of land!

Here’s what Burbed reader Sonarrat had to say about this house:

Could anyone justify this? Seriously. If it was zoned R3, sure. It’s close to the apartments on Coleman Road, so it would be a nice site for a new complex. But it’s not, it’s R1.

I think you’re missing the point. This is your opportunity to build your dream home, your trophy home. Your home that says “I just IPOed!” Your home that says “Silicon Valley makes everyone rich!” This one isn’t about monetization. It’s about showoffization.

Just think of how envious others will be when you build your own Menlo Park version of Versailles on this .43 acre plot of land.

The first thing I would do? Give the estate a name.

I’d call it “Athertonish”.

Labor Day Sales in Menlo Park – buy a house, get one free!

Ouchers! A 23% price cut! Still, it’s in the million+ range. Phew. That was a close call. Menlo Park, you’re still in the Real Bay Area, but please be more careful in the future.

That said, this is still an enormous lot and a great opportunity for potential landlords. Cha ching!
