Withdrawn: 3056 Greer Rd, Palo Alto

3056 Greer Rd — $1,288,000.  Listed 2/12/09 (John V. Pinto of Realty World-John V. Pinto And Associates represents the Seller) – 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms – 2030sf living space on a 6837sf lot – Atrium model, added detached studio, custom Eichler replacement double pane windows and doors throughout. Mark’s Preview Notes:  I like the feeling of this Eichler — call it good feng-shui if you like.   The kitchen may have been remodeled a few years ago but the colors and finishes are contemporary.  The cabinets are complimeted by gray colored “ash-wood” laminate floors.  The living room overlooking the rear deck just feels very comfortable.  The bonus with this home is the addition of a detached studio in the front courtyard, which does not hurt the flow of the home, but very nicely adds a space for a home business or artist studio.
