Discover Upscale Living In West Atherton

December 12 2015

West Atherton is an exclusive neighborhood with upscale, luxurious homes. Faxon Dean Atherton, a wealthy Massachusetts businessman, was the first to call this place home when he built a 600-acre ranch in this area. The neighborhood is now one of the most expensive places to live in the country. Menlo Circus Club, a private club for socialites and equestrians, now occupies the space where Atherton's private residence once stood.

Heritage oak, pine and cedar trees line the wide streets. As with other neighborhoods in Atherton, the lack of sidewalks here allows the community to maintain a rural vibe. Elegant estate homes are tucked discreetly behind elaborate fences and hedges allowing residents to maintain their even as they showcase their elegant homes.

Ranch style homes are becoming rare as young homeowners replace them with their own version of a dream house.

The houses in this neighborhood are unique meaning price varies widely according to design and location, with homes located on the popular central streets selling for significantly more than those homes on the outskirts of the community.
