516 Van Buren Street awaits the selective buyer who has vision and dreams. This property is like a canvas waiting for a masterpiece to be created. A lot size of slightly over one-half acre provides the astute buyer with plenty of space with which to work. Please note that both 24,000 sq ft and 23,491 sq ft, respectively, have been reported by Realist – buyer to verify actual lot size. Many of the nearby neighboring properties are also typically close to half an acre in size. This can immediately be felt when contrasted to the majority of properties in Los Altos that tend to have close to quarter acre lots. These large lots certainly help to distinguish Van Buren Street, making it one of the most desirable streets in Los Altos. One immediate neighbor has a tennis court. Two others have swimming pools. What are the possibilities for 516 Van Buren? Is the best use to potentially tear down the current home and build new? Does it make sense to keep part or all of the existing home and remodel or add on? The possibilities are almost endless. Please be sure to check with the Los Altos planning and building departments to verify that your dreams can become reality. Make 516 Van Buren Street your masterpiece!
