Living in Green Acres Palo Alto Means Top-Rated Schools and a Neighborly Atmosphere

AA Green Acres 1In the words of the hit sitcom theme song, “Green Acres is the place to be!” While the Palo Alto version of Green Acres is far removed from the TV show’s “farm livin’,” living in Green Acres in Palo Alto is just as idyllic.  As a matter of fact, the current neighborhood is on a site that used to house sprawling citrus orchards, so city conveniences truly do meet country charm here in Green Acres.  This neighborhood has all the features that families look for in a full service neighborhood.  It’s walking distance to the amazing public schools, it is bordered and well-defined, and it has shopping and restaurants all within minutes.

Green Acres Residents Love Where They Live!AA Green Acres 2

The community of Green Acres comprises three distinct sections (Green Acres I, II, and III.) All share a border with Arastradero Road yet remain free of vehicular traffic and noise. In other words, Green Acres is convenient to a main thoroughfare, yet feels as serene and peaceful as if it were far removed from the city’s hustle and bustle. Besides the tranquility and outstanding location, Green Acres is a coveted spot due to the retention of its homes’ post World War II charm. The homes for sale in Green Acres range from quaint bungalows to ranch homes; however, slowly the older housing stock is being replaced by larger, more grand homes which is continuing to drive appreciation in the up direction.  Palo Alto Orchards makes up the third section of Green Acres and is located on the east side of Arastradero Road.

A wistful dream of many parents is to be able to walk their kids to school, conversing with friends and neighbors along the way. Green Acres delivers that reality, as top Palo Alto public schools are located steps from homes in the neighborhood. There are many must-haves for those seeking to invest in the Palo Alto real estate market, and great schools top the list year after year.

Green Acres Yields Green for Smart Palo Alto Real Estate Investors

Just as people are lining up to buy homes in Green Acres, others are lining up to find quality rental properties here.  Many families are anxious to send their children to the best public schools in the area. Not all are able to afford to buy a home in this pricey real estate market. What do they do? They compromise and rent a home in a neighborhood like Green Acres with top-tier schools.
