Cheapest House in Atherton

Is it REALLY Atherton?

Borderline. Ugly duckling disguising itself as a swan.

Redwood city pricing. Cute neighborhood (not Atherton), should do well.

It is Atherton–the area used to be the servants’ quarters which is why the lot is allowed to be less than an acre. Selby Lane/RCSD, so the cheaper half of Atherton. I’m a bit surprised at the pricing–I’d expect it to be higher, but it is 1500 sq ft. Plus from a bidding point of view, you catch anyone looking at the under $2M but might be able to go higher range.

Oh yes… I own a home in Atherton where the servants’ quarter used to be, that’s why my lot size is only a tenth of a typical Atherton home…

Oooooh. I think I can figure out who you are then :slight_smile:

Only joking but good to know the history!

FINALLY SOLD!! Listed for 2.3M back in May 2019. Sold for 1.9M in October.

I thought you’d be all over that cachet :wink:

The seller did ok. It would be interesting to know why it kept getting relisted. 1.4 in 2000 to 1.9 in 2019. The trees impinge on this lot and this end of the street is heavily shaded.

This address should have a Redwood City address and zip code. Only the houses abutting on the North on Selby carry the Atherton address. It’s strange.
