Rich History, Strong Future – Investing in Monta Loma Real Estate in Mountain View, CA

Written by David Roberson, Esq. on . Posted in Landlords, Mountain View, Non-Owner Occupied Properties, Property Management, Silicon Valley Real Estate Investing


Monta Loma One www.svpmg.netThe Mountain View neighborhood named Monta Loma has a rich history that dates back to the pre-Columbian Native American tribes that inhabited the region. Monta Loma in its current form got its start with the housing crisis that faced soldiers returning from World War II. This neighborhood still retains many of the simple one-story homes, also known as Eichler homes, on lots typically between 5,000 and 6,500 square feet. Life in the Monta Loma neighborhood continues to be shaped by the original suburban planning that formed this community.  Importantly, Monta Loma is located in one of the more desirable Silicon Valley enclaves, and is at the door-step of Google, Inc.  The central location and the ease of access to a majority of the peninsula, Stanford University, and other bay area cities provides support for Monta Loma’s desirability.

Monta Loma Two www.svpmg.netHome Style and Positioning in Mountain View, CA

Many of the homes for sale in Monta Loma are in the vintage garage forward, recessed entry style predominant in this neighborhood. Typically under 1500 square feet in size, design features common to these homes include lots of huge windows, open floor plans and exposed beams. Naturally, some of the homes have been remodeled through the years, but the overall architectural character of the neighborhood remains remarkably similar to what the original planners had in mind.

Often homes are set back a bit further on the lot than is common in other neighborhoods, something that had an influence on life in the Monta Loma neighborhood. There’s a lot of front yard living, kids playing and neighbors chatting, contributing to the development of a real sense of community in the neighborhood. When people move to Monta Loma, they tend to stay, drawn to the classic, connected suburban living.  When investors purchase they tend to hold long-term as this neighborhood has proven to stand the test of time.

Monta Loma Three www.svpmg.netSilicon Valley Community Life

Monta Loma has an active neighborhood association that works to preserve the historic elements of the neighborhood, such as some of the stately trees that have long shaded neighborhood streets and yards, and sponsors a babysitting co-op. There are annual community get-togethers, including a summertime ice cream social, and a number of local workshops, such as the recurring drop-in bike clinic, yoga, art therapy and more. There are two parks with playgrounds suitable for children of varying ages. People know and enjoy each other here in this homey neighborhood.
