Google Executive Buys Palo Alto Home for Record $30 Million

A Google executive paid $30 million to become the proud owner of a landmark Palo Alto home.

It’s reportedly the highest price paid for a house in the city.

The preservation group Palo Alto Stanford Heritage says the Spanish colonial-style building on Cowper Street was originally designed for a Levi Strauss heir.

The realtor says they are not surprised by the price because there are only a few other properties in Palo Alto as big. The nearly 5,000-square-foot house sits on about an acre of land.
