Good friend and colleague Michael Hall, with the permission of his client, graciously allowed me to use his new listing as a guinea pig for a series of video articles I intend to start doing about interesting local properties. For many properties, a good set of MLS pictures and a standard virtual tour give a good idea of what the property is about, but there are some that merit better treatment, and Michael’s listing at 498 Fulton, Palo Alto, is definitely one of them.
While Palo Alto has an endearing snobbishness all its own, some folks moving to this area from San Francisco or New York shudder at the thought of being in the ‘burbs. This place, however, would fit in well in many an upscale San Francisco or new York neighborhood, and as an added bonus, it’s only a block or two from the hubbub of Palo Alto’s University Avenue.
Listed at $1,650,000 and weighing in at just under 2000 square feet, with three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, the interior is sparse, sleak, and stylish, with curved walls, high ceilings, bright lights, and a spacious kitchen.
Ah yes, the kitchen…that brings me to the whole bamboo thing. While granite is still the biggest rage in kitchen decor, bamboo is definitely making inroads into high-end kitchens.
Take it away, Michael!
