Ideal for young professionals and new families, North Los Altos real estate has plenty to offer, and not just in the short-term. These properties make great rental homes, especially when you streamline the process with professional property management services. Tucked neatly away from the more urban hustle and bustle of the Palo Alto real estate market, Adobe Creek, North El Monte Avenue, the Foothill Expressway and El Camino Real serve as borders for this highly walkable and very livable neighborhood. Moreover, this neighborhood is a hop skip and a jump away from Stanford University, and minutes from Silicon Valley technology companies like Facebook, Google, Apple and LinkedIn.
Homes in North Los Altos enjoy that small town feel that has become noticeably absent from so much of the region these days. Not so long ago, this was farm country. The last of the peach orchards can still be seen outside of the Los Altos History Museum, within walking distance for much of the community. The neighborhood also features a community center, a children’s performing arts center and a grand library, perfect complements to the area’s excellent schools. This neighborhood leaves nothing to be desired – in fact it could easily be that neighborhood depicted in a Norman Rockwell painting.
The shopping districts are in the downtown area and over by Mountain View. Walkability is part of what makes this area so nice to live in. There are grocery stores, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, all within a matter of steps. The coffee shops emit a scent in the air with the rich aroma of roasting beans and brewing coffee. There are also a number of small parks, ideal for impromptu picnics with the little ones.
Residential areas are peaceful, thanks to careful zoning planning. Single family homes of about 2,000 square feet are most common in the residential North Los Altos real estate market. Set on approximately quarter acre lots, there’s plenty of room for living, outdoor entertaining and family recreation. There are also some lovely luxury homes from earlier eras, well preserved and a joy to see.
