The Ventura neighborhood is an excellent way to gain access to all that Palo Alto provides at a more reasonable price point. 

Charming in nature and with a unique community feel, Ventura is an eclectic mix of apartments, townhouses, and traditional smaller single-family homes of 1,500 square feet or less. Though the homes may be modest, the central location and rapid development of this neighborhood make it continue to gain in both popularity and desirability. 

Bounded by the main thoroughfares of El Camino Real and Page Mill Road, and with proximity to California Avenue CalTrain station, Ventura is a commuter’s delight. Adding to its appeal are the surrounding boutiques, eateries, and larger chain restaurants and stores, many within walking distance. For families, access to one of the most coveted school districts in the country is a highlight, while foodies relish in the two Michelin-Starred restaurants and weekly farmers market on nearby California Avenue. 

While most of Palo Alto is effectively built-out, Ventura remains an exciting area for developers, suggesting homes with good appreciation potential. Revitalization of North Ventura, particularly a good utilization of the closed Fry’s store location, is a focus of the city. The city is exploring how to redevelop this area, promising an urban experience that centers on sustainability and convenience, which will undoubtedly strengthen Ventura’s importance in greater Palo Alto for the years ahead.
