Steph Curry and his wife Ayesha are hoping to prevent multi-story homes from being built in Atherton, California, the affluent Silicon Valley enclave where the couple owns a home.
Earlier this month, the Currys sent a letter to leaders of of Atherton, asking the town not to allow the development of multi-story housing, citing privacy and their children’s safety.
“As Atherton residents … we have been following along with the housing element updates with special interest in the 23 Oakwood property,” the Currys wrote. “We hesitate to add to the ‘not in our backyard’ (literally) rhetoric, but we wanted to send a note before today’s meeting. Safety and privacy for us and our kids continues to be our top priority and one of the biggest reasons we chose Atherton as home.”
“We kindly ask that the town adopts the new housing element without the inclusion of 23 Oakwood,” the Currys added. “Should that not be sufficient for the state, we ask that the town commits to investing in considerably taller fencing and landscaping to block sight lines onto our family’s property.”
Back in December, the Currys sold their $31.2 million Atherton residence, before upgrading to an even larger home that features seven bedrooms and nine baths sprawled across more than 17,700 square feet.
