This home, situated in one of the nation’s most expensive zip codes, offers a glimpse of old Atherton: it’s a modest two bed, one bath, under 1,700 square feet, with garage, chicken coop, and separate guest house/barn situated upon a walnut orchard. Other than some gratuitous staging (fake flowers, dog biscuits in a bowl for non-existent dog), 28 Selby Lane has been virtually untouched — and somewhat neglected — since being built in 1948. The only thing that points to change over time is the price tag for this property: $5,895,000.
