"Literally on the edge..."

There are many things that make Edgewood drive "SO" Palo Alto - the huge, modern homes, the thick, leafy vegetation that acts as a buffer between the town and the rest of SIlicon Valley, the friendly neighbors, and the great schools and even better medical facilities nearby. This is absolutely one of Palo Alto's wealthier streets, as indicated by the size of some of the houses, the types of cars in the driveways and three-car garages, and the sheer number of swimming pools in the backyards (which, of course, I am only aware of thanks to Google maps).

Here is the big red flag with this street - it is a mere block away from Woodland Avenue in East Palo Alto, which is geographically close but worlds away on the income spectrum. Any time you have two such neighborhoods close together, one of them has a huge target on its back and a huge potential for depreciation in value. Take a guess which of the two streets I am talking about.

I am not saying that one shouldn't live here or even indicating that it is unsafe, but just be aware of what you are getting yourself into. And if you do live in Palo Alto, wouldn't you want to be closer to 280 than 101, anyway?
  • Very well-maintained
  • Great houses
  • Access to all of Palo Alto's amenities
  • Very close to East Palo Alto
  • Very expensive
  • 101 traffic and noise
