About Anne Butler

My husband and I met nearly twenty years ago in New York City. We have a common love affair for unique properities and renovations. We have spent much of our free time over the years buying run down properities and renovating them.

We spent the majority of our marriage living in a renovated 1880's brownstone on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. We would rent it out on and then travel the world over with all our children.

We have had such fabulous renters from all over the world, and a few of them have even become dear friends. We love renting our home because it is well suited for families. No one with kids wants to stay in a hotel and this allows for an ideal stay.

In return, it allows us to take the whole family on incredible vacations. We've taken children to the corners of the earth and stayed in amazing places because of renting out our home.

Now that we have moved from NYC and now live in Palo Alto - we want to continue the tradition.

Anne Butler purchased this house in 2014

Why Anne Butler chose Menlo Park

My husband's company was bought by HP and we were asked to relocated. I never dreamed we would leave NYC. If you have to move from NYC, the only place worth moving is to Palo Alto.

This area is so magical an the closest thing to the Garden of Eden.

The housing market here is spectacle. Most listings are sold in a weekend with dozens of offers and even selling for a million dollars over the asking.

When we decided to move here, I knew I didn't have time to wait for the right house to come along. I went to the owners of the houses I loved most, and made offers. Luckily, the owners of this house accepted.

Houses like this rarely go on the market. They stay in the families for generations or are sold by word of mouth. We feel so luck to have bought this house being new to the area.

What makes this house unique

The location is about as good as you can get. The house itself is grand and has all the details and characters of a bygone era.

Gorgeous home, Gorgeous neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay in this beautiful Palo Alto home. Everything from the exterior gardens to the interior decor is classic, elegant, and beautiful. The neighborhood is just gorgeous and we loved our evening walks along the shady sidewalks. The location can not be beat with easy access to the freeway, and just a hop-skip-and jump from Stanford campus, and charming downtown Palo Alto's University Avenue with so many delightful shops and eateries. The owners were a dream to work with - we will most definitely be returning to this property again!

Absolutely marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

The most wonderful neighborhood. Walking late at night under the incredible variety of huge trees...looking at all those terrific homes...trying to choose a favorite...just all so fun (not to mention the beautifully decorated home). The Spanish outside porch was everyone's dream of sitting and just looking at children in the pool and running around the large yard....all so very memorable. All expectations surpassed our wishes. Thank-you!

Really nice, great location, in fine neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home on a peaceful street, completely as described. We had a lovely time, enjoyed the yard, pool and being close to everything Palo Alto has to offer. The house was clean and well maintained, and the owner was responsive to our needs, we would recommend this to anyone wanting a bit more space and the 'comforts' of home.

Located in the exclusive neighborhood of Crescent Park. Homes regularly sell over $10 Million.

Our street is nicked named Billionaire's row because there are three of Forbes richest people live here.

The homes are incredibly charming and manicured. Most of the homes were build in the 20's and 30's and have the glamour of Old Hollywood.

We are walkable to Sanford campus and downtown Palo Alto. Facebook is just a five minute drive.
