"Stephen Curry's Neighborhood Goes From Atherton Elite to A-PEELING!
Steph Curry, the Golden State Warriors point guard and beloved basketball superstar, has been living the high life in Atherton, the country's wealthiest zip code. He and his wife Ayesha Curry and their three children call this luxurious neighborhood home since 2019, when they bought a $31 million spec mansion that set records as the most expensive home purchase in the Bay Area that year.
But, it seems like Curry's elite lifestyle is about to get a bit of a shakeup, and this time, it's not from his on-court opponents! Local officials are recommending a single-family lot adjacent to Curry's home to be rezoned for a 16-unit apartment building. As part of a state-mandated requirement to create 348 new housing units citywide, Curry's peaceful Atherton neighborhood is about to get a little more crowded.
Curry expressed his concerns in a letter to the city, stating that he has "major concerns in terms of both privacy and safety with three-story townhomes looming directly behind us." But let's be real, who wouldn't have concerns about living next to a bunch of three-story townhomes?
We can only imagine the reactions of the other Atherton residents, who are used to the lush green lawns, wide streets, and the occasional sound of a tennis ball being hit. Now, they'll have to get used to the sounds of kids playing and people chatting, right outside their doorstep.
But, we have to hand it to Curry, who despite his concerns, doesn't want to be labeled as "not in my backyard" (literally). He's taking it all in stride, and we're sure he'll still be making sweet music on the court.
So, to summarize, Stephen Curry's neighborhood is about to get a bit more interesting and a lot less exclusive. Who knew that the most expensive zip code in the country would suddenly become more accessible? It just goes to show you that even the wealthiest among us can't escape the housing crisis. But, we're sure Curry and his family will adapt just fine and continue to live the Atherton life, with a bit more of a diverse community to call their neighbors.
Stay tuned for updates on the Atherton housing crisis, and how it's affecting the area's most elite residents. Who knows, maybe we'll even see Curry grabbing a cup of coffee at the local Starbucks, instead of sipping latte at his private estate. The possibilities are endless, and we can't wait to see what unfolds!"
