Palo Alto was established when Leland Stanford Sr. founded the prestigious and well-known Stanford University. As the birthplace of Silicon Valley, Palo Alto is the perfect blend of old and new. North of the Oregon Expressway, are several older homes dating back to the 1890’s while south of the Oregon Expressway you can find Eichler style homes built after WWII. The gorgeous tree lined streets and original homes keep the city’s historic characteristics while the updated downtown brings in a new modern feel to the city.
University Avenue and Downtown Palo Alto are filled with amazing restaurants and shops attractive to many. Nearby is Stanford Shopping Center, an outdoor mall including outdoor gardens, several dining options, and high-end shops. With rolling hills and lots of open space this community provides lots of room for outdoor activities, like biking, running and hiking. Palo Alto is a stunning place to live and its close proximity to several tech startups and highly ranked schools surely make it stand out!
