Palo Alto has a reputation for both impressive affluence and surprisingly down-to-earth citizens. Nowhere is this better exemplified than in illustrious Old Palo Alto. Though the homes in this neighborhood perfectly embody an “old money” aesthetic, the people of Old Palo Alto are the opposite of snobbish. These inhabitants are as unique as their residences, whose sole uniformity is their luxurious quality of design.
The neighborhood resides near a number of public amenities, such as Rinconada Park, Elizabeth F. Gamble Garden, and the nationally recognized Palo Alto High School. The Caltrain station, Farmers’ Market, and bountiful shopping and dining options on California Avenue are all only a few minutes’ walk from anywhere within the community.
Old Palo Alto is squared off neatly by four main roads, easily navigable by pedestrians and bikers alike. Year-round sunshine streams through the branches of the neighborhood’s abundant trees, making Old Palo Alto feel more like a peaceful forest than a suburban development. With its large, beautiful homes, friendly residents, and sought-after accessibility, Old Palo Alto is ideal for everyone from children to big-name CEOs. It’s truly a paradise to all who live there—and a hopeful daydream to those who don’t.
