New on the Market: Menlo Park Pick of the Litter

971 Menlo Avenue, Menlo Park, CA
I was reminded today of why I love Menlo Park. While waiting for a parking space in the Draeger’s parking lot, I saw a blond, soccer mom type back out of a parking space in her huge Suburban and pull off the bumper of the neighboring car. The owner of the damaged car happened to be walking to her car at the time and saw the whole incident. She approached the woman driving the Suburban who immediately jumped out of her car and burst into tears. The woman whose bumper was dangling from her oversized SUV hugged the tearful woman and told her everything was going to be OK. It was so sweet. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy about my community.

The people in Menlo Park are for the most part good natured.  They are dog loving, good hearted people who help their neighbors and want to preserve a small town feeling in their city.  Of course there are exceptions but this has been my experience.  My dog and I get a lot of love when we walk the streets of Menlo Park and I feel lucky to live here.

If you would like to experience all this love yourself and are looking for a townhome for you and your small dog, there is an ideal property steps from Draegers.  971 Menlo Avenue is an inviting loft-like 1 bedroom, 1 bath townhouse located on a quiet cul-de-sac a block from downtown Menlo Park. The upstairs room features a central wood burning fireplace, high ceilings & oversized windows.  The bedroom downstairs leads to a private rear garden deck.  It is small but cozy.  The location is the major selling point of this unit. 

The HOA restricts dogs to less than 25 pounds which is probably a good idea because the backyard is small.  However, there is a deck and grass area that would meet the needs of most small dogs.  The condo is also walking distance to Nealon Park which is an off leash dog park in weekday mornings between 8:00-10:00am.
