About

The neighborhood between Alameda and Interstate 280 is known as an upper-market, exclusive community, characterized by opulence and grandeur. The residents who choose this neighborhood are understated and prefer the seclusion and privacy of this neighborhood over the bursting social scene in West Atherton and Lindenwood.

Surrounded by oaks, creeks, and lush hillsides, West of the Alameda seamlessly blends a peaceful, bucolic setting with impressive and spacious abodes, many of which boast breathtaking views of the San Francisco Peninsula. The vast distance between homes and the lush, green surroundings provide an ambiance of seclusion. In this neighborhood, it’s easy to feel set apart from bustling urbanity, yet the neighborhood is just a few minutes away from downtown Menlo Park or an easy drive to Interstate 280.
