You’re a Busy Person
Which is why the link below the photos sends you to a slideshow. Check it out and if you’re interested call 650-386-5280
You’re Particular About Where You Live
This apartment gives you:
968 square feet on the first floor.
Oak kitchen cabinets with drawers that close themselves, double stainless steel sink, color coordinated countertops, and you’ll be the first to use the black refrigerator (with glass shelves) and the easy-to-load black dishwasher.
Hand painted white ceilings and off-white walls (no spatter from spray painting hither and yon).
A new oak vanity with a jade-colored granite top.
Rooms that are larger than the rooms in the multi-story complexes going up in Mountain View.
A haven – a home where you can relax in peace and comfort.
You Like Extras
A keyed storage closet that is 8 feet high – no more storing your canoe or other tall stuff in the corner of the living room.
A deck where you can sit in the shade of a gnarled Hollywood juniper on one end and enjoy looking down at the water sparkling in the pool at the other end.
A pocket door slides out of the wall if you want to separate the kitchen from the entry.
Choose one of six colors for an accent wall in the living room.
Hooking up to the HD antenna and watching a lot of channels for free. Or if you’d rather sign up with a TV provider the apartment is wired for local/national/international satellite or cable TV.
There’s a kitty sitter for your cat when you’re on vacation.
You Like to Know a Little About Who Lives Here

Why did the people who lived here leave? They lived here seven and a half years and have moved into their first house.
A few people get their exercise by biking to Stanford and Google.
Several residents have said they’ve made lasting friendships with some of their neighbors.
You Want to Live in a Place That Feels Like Home
The gardens surrounding the pool have ferns, lemon bushes, camellias, apricot and loquat trees, a giant avocado tree, a visiting falcon and a raccoon who lives in a large pine tree.
Many people come in the gates and say something about how peaceful and quiet it is.
People new to California sometimes ask about earthquakes, and yes, the entire complex has been earthquake retrofitted.
Your cat can watch sassy squirrels and an assortment of birds.
