In the 94027 zip code of San Mateo county, the Town of Atherton, California, may look like other small ritzy suburbs, but it isn’t. With an idyllic location on the San Francisco Peninsula, Atherton is one of the most affluent cities in the country. In fact, year after year it ranks as one of the nation’s richest towns, and one of its most expensive. Within commuting distance to San Francisco and Palo Alto, the city has been home to tech execs like Eric Schmidt and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, as well as other famous and influential people like Jerry Rice, Willie Mays, Ty Cobb, and Shirley Temple.
Atherton has no businesses or industry within the town limits as it is a residential town. However, residents still enjoy a long list of incredible options for entertainment, recreation, shopping, and dining with quick and easy access to Redwood City, Woodside, and Menlo Park. Additionally, San Jose and San Francisco are only thirty minutes away. The town also encompasses several prestigious private schools, including Phillip Brooks, Menlo School, and Sacred Heart Schools, in addition to having multiple active community organizations like the Atherton Dames, the Atherton Civic Interest League, and the Artherton Arts Committee.
Real estate in Atherton is spectacular and the town is committed to preserving its charm with building ordinances for all properties. Most homes for sale in Atherton have tall hedges or gates to ensure privacy and can be described as ultra-high-end properties. The luxury homes in Atherton command top dollar prices and consist of many mega-mansions. For example, many Atherton properties have nine thousand to thirteen thousand square feet, and architectural styles vary, as do home ages and special features.
