My Notes

This spacious 2 BR / 1.5 BA condo in Palo Alto Central is in the highly desired California Avenue district. Palo Alto Central is a beautiful complex with luscious trees, plants, fountains, recreation room, swimming pool & hot tub. Its location makes for convenient and easy living -- walk to Caltrain (1 min), numerous restaurants*, Starbucks, Mollie Stones grocery store (across the street), post office, Fedex Kinko's, weekly farmers market, and the park**. And it's only 0.5 miles from Stanford campus -- you can walk, bike or take the free Marguerite shuttle there. Easy access to freeways 101 and 280. Caltrain makes it easy to travel to downtown San Francisco, up and down the Peninsula, or to downtown San Jose
This two story unit on the second floor is very private and peaceful. It overlooks the courtyard and has plenty of sunlight throughout the entire unit. It was renovated in 2012 -- bathrooms completely remodeled with granite countertops and designer porcelain tile, new baseboards and crown molding installed, new stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors in entry way/kitchen, etc. The skylight and floor to ceiling porcelain tile in the master bathroom create a relaxing experience that's like showering out in the open.
