Step through the distinctive gates along Middlefield Road, and cross into a time of yesteryear fastidiously preserved along tree-canopied streets. Experience an air of old-fashioned gentility with Lindenwood’s lush landscaping, winding streets, and friendly residents often seen out and about on a stroll.

This genteel atmosphere harkens back to the 19th century when this area was once the summer home of the “Silver King of the Comstock Lode,” James C. Flood, who built his 44-room home christened “Linden Towers” on the 600-acre estate. Flood adorned his opulent estate with antiques from around the world and sterling silver plumbing fixtures.

Despite the passing time, Flood’s presence still presides over the neighborhood with fountains, statues, and street lights; even the initials “JCF” remain emblazoned on the wrought iron arches above the gates leading into Lindenwood. Adding to the private estate atmosphere is the completely enclosed community. With virtually no through traffic and tall trees which create a lush canopy above the maze-like curving streets, one can appreciate the secluded design of the neighborhood.

Today, Lindenwood is home to both newcomers and established residents, from those who acquired wealth through involvement in Silicon Valley start-ups to descendants from long lines of prominent families. There are currently 488 addresses, and most properties sit on parcels of about one acre. Unlike West Atherton, there are still a lot of older homes, and the newer homes are relatively modest multimillion-dollar mansions. Consequently, home values remain fairly conservative, posting solid equity gains, less fluctuations, and a lower price ceiling, regardless of the overall real estate market.

Many of the Lindenwood residents are involved in the Lindenwood Homes Association. The Association serves to address community issues, including organizing and coordinating Lindenwood disaster preparedness efforts, taking action on situations which may have detrimental effects on the community, maintaining gardening services in public areas, and planning social events.
