Anyone taking their first drive through Stierlin Estates Mountain View will often take it slow, not just for the quaint neighborhood view, but because they have no choice. The sleepy neighborhood of Stierlin Estates was designed with a zig-zag road pattern, which helps keep drivers with a heavy foot in check. Ask the residents about their quiet little corner of Mountain View and they’ll tell you they like it that way. Beyond creating a traffic calming road network, you can’t actually drive “through” the area. The roads loop around with no direct access from one highway to another. This all but eliminates commuters driving through the neighborhood.
This fundamental neighborhood design has made the Stierlin Estates real estate market more desirable over the last few years. It’s not just a little quieter because of the traffic calming, but there’s also a line of commercial buildings buffering the neighborhood from the noisy highways. While Mountain View continues to grow, more people are looking for refuge in quaint corners of the city. Stierlin Estates is perfect for people who want to escape the hustle of the city without getting too far away. Located minutes from Google World-Wide headquarters, Silicon Valley and a short freeway drive to downtown San Jose and San Francisco, this neighborhood is a great place to look for a primary residence or an investment property.
Location and layout is what has made buying an investment property in Stierlin Estates such an attractive option. A quieter life without the commute has attracted plenty of workers from the surrounding tech communities to rent in the area. There are hundreds of tech companies within biking distance to Mountain View, and Google is a long-iron away to boot. Investing in Stierlin Estates should be considered for any investor thinking about Silicon Valley as a place to develop an asset base.
Although Stierlin Estates was nothing more than a patch of farmland 50 years ago, time has been good to this area. Magnolia trees planted decades ago are now showing their full potential, adding quite a bit of character. Newer developments sometimes lack the charm of the classic American street. As Mountain View expands, this can be more difficult to find, except for some of the more exclusive areas.
It might be cliché to talk about the first rule of real estate being location, but it’s just as true today in Silicon Valley as it was in 1900 New York City. There aren’t many neighborhoods like Stierlin Estates, and it may be more difficult to get your hands on a home in this area in the future.
Time and again, Silicon Valley Property Management Group have ranked this area as one of the best neighborhoods to raise a family. It’s easy to see why when you take your first drive through it. Just remember to take it slow!
