Underwhelming One-Story Menlo Park Home Hits Market at $3.2 Million

New, 1 comment

Alas, another humble Silicon Valley abode asking for millions

Further proof that Menlo Park and the rest of Silicon Valley need to rocket launch their own housing boom (in lieu of leaving San Francisco and Oakland to bear the construction brunt), this perfectly noble—albeit pizazz-free—house in the aforementioned city lands on the market for a whopping $3.2 million.

This three bedroom, two and a half bath home at 900 Menlo Oaks Drive features 2,220 square feet and sits on .78 acres. The home, built in 1948, was lived in by the same family for 50 years.

Ideal for a major renovation. Perfect for someone who has serious bank, too, to build more. As for the price tag, it will probably hit the mark or higher.

In April, if you recall, this Menlo Park "shack" sold for 57 percent over asking. The Silicon Valley town has a glaring dearth of housing when compared to the mammoth tech outfits (e.g., Facebook) in the area.
