Overview

Small but strategically located, Southgate occupies an intimate setting virtually across the street from Stanford University. This pocket of homes unfolds around a mere handful of short streets, yet its quiet dignity and coveted centrality endow the neighborhood as one of the most sought-after areas to live in all of the Peninsula.

 

Tucked between El Camino Real and Alma Street, Southgate’s key location allows residents to be within moments of the boutiques and dining venues of both California Avenue and Town & Country Village. Southgate also marries proximity to Stanford with enviably short distance to Downtown Palo Alto and many major employers, and it can only be entered via El Camino Real or Churchill Avenue—a feature that prevents through-traffic while ensuring a tranquil, secure environment. This incomparable accessibility allows the neighborhood to share rank with prestigious neighbors like Old Palo Alto and Crescent Park.

 

Southgate was owned by the Stanford family before being subdivided and developed into a residential community. Nowadays, many of the original homes have been extensively remodeled or replaced altogether by modern luxury residences. Because of the neighborhood’s compact nature, residents enjoy a very close-knit sense of community in addition to premier access to work, recreation, and top-ranking schools.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • An intimate yet extremely central setting
  • Only accessible via El Camino Real and Churchill
  • Once the “South Gate” of Stanford University
  • Tranquil, secure, and moments from everything
