This home is central to the beautiful nature and incredible cultural and recreational activities of the mid-peninsula area south of San Francisco. Daily jaunts can include sightseeing in San Francisco; finding starfish at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, Half Moon Bay; music concerts at Stanford University's world class Bing Auditorium or Shoreline Amphitheater; or a round of golf at one of the many beautiful courses. Take day drips with a 2-hour drive to the Monterrey Bay Aquarium, 17-mile drive at Pebble Beach and the art colony of Carmel. In the heart of Silicon Valley, you can visit the San Jose Tech Museum. For children, there is the SF zoo and new Exploratorium; San Jose's Happy Hollow and the fabulous Children's Discovery Museum. Short drives to wine-tasting or white sandy beaches.
Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: This is our family home. As our six children have married and begun families of their own, we find ourselves traveling to see grandchildren in various corners of the world. To support this travel, we rent our home during the Christmas holidays and early summer, mid-May to mid-July.
Why the Owner Chose West of the Alameda, Atherton, CA, USA:
Our street seems like it lies in a rural setting and yet we are moments from the renowned Stanford Shopping Center, restaurants, and all that Silicon Valley offers. We like the privacy and the convenience. Gardening is a favorite past-time and we include hired gardeners in the rental price.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The SF peninsula is noted for some of the best weather in the world, with mild temperatures year-round. The pool is solar-heated and we swam in 85F water by the first week of May '13. Centered close enough to SF and yet within reach of Monterrey, our guest book includes all sorts of day sightseeing trips.
