Mid Peninsula real estate tours are on Tuesday and Friday.  This home, listed by Coldwell Banker, was presented on Friday's tour in Palo Alto. Not the highest price home on tour, but if you have time to see only one house, take a look at 2120 Cowper Street in Palo Alto.  The listing shows it as over 6,000 square feet on a lot of over 7,500 square feet, 3 years old (in my book, 3 years old is better than new; the bugs have been worked out) and priced at $5,000,000.  Even if your budget doesn't take you that far, it is worth a look.  It really represents an excellent combination of  today's most popular features (large square footage, basement living area with excellent light wells, large family room kitchen, huge master bedroom suite, large rear gardens) with classic styling and elegance.
