Written by David Roberson, Esq. on . Posted in Landlords, Menlo Park, Non-Owner Occupied Properties, Property Management


AA AAMP 5Charming, secure and ranked high for walk-ability, life in the Allied Arts & Downtown Menlo Park neighborhood offers a friendly, secure feeling environment and excellent schools. The shopping district is within an easy walk of most homes, as are family-friendly local parks and green spaces. Allied Arts & Downtown real estate can be a smart investment for those looking for a home, as opposed to just a place to live, and for those seeking investment-worthy rental properties.  Proximity to Silicon Valley, Stanford University, and major freeways provides neighbors with an incredibly central location.


Planned For Living Well

It is the way of life that makes this neighborhood special. When building began in 1929, the founders of the Allied Arts part of the neighborhood envisioned a beautifully designed arts community, a sanctuary of sorts for artisans, artists and other creatives. Designed to inspire, this neighborhood maintains that original artsy vibe, with artisan boutiques, art studios and galleries, floral gardens and cozy cafes.

Just over the San Francisquito Creek pedestrian bridge is the Stanford Shopping Center. The Downtown part of the neighborhood features an array of authentically vintage shops, boutiques and eateries, as well as modern retailers. The local farmers market sets up nearby at Fremont Park, also the site of summer concerts and other events. Nealon Park has a playground, an off-leash dog park and a baseball field.

AA AAMP 2Environmentally Friendly Design is Everywhere

An important feature of life in Allied Arts & Downtown Menlo Park is how conveniently located all the essentials – and plenty of life’s luxuries – are to neighborhood residents. Aside from the farmers market, there is also a supermarket, fine and casual dining, and shopping within easy walking and biking distance. For longer trips, public transportation is conveniently close. Not only does this reflect a small town past, but also represents modern efforts toward more environmentally-friendly urban planning.
