Castilleja adds prestige


The Old Palo Alto neighborhood is a unique and prestigious neighborhood for good reason. Unfortunately, residents don’t seem to understand that it is the presence of Castilleja School that makes that neighborhood unique and gives it its prestige. Without Castilleja, that neighborhood would be ordinary. The extent to which the houses in Old Palo Alto have been expanded and built up and built out is extraordinary. That these homeowners would then deny a tasteful, well considered and reasonable expansion of Castilleja is, in my mind, a hypocrisy of mind boggling proportions
