Back when the Ohlone Indians were being relocated by the Spanish settlers, Atherton was a part of the Rancho de las Pulgas. When Menlo Park was established Atherton became known as the community of Fair Oaks. The town of Atherton was incorporated in 1923 and named after one of the first property owners Faxon Dean Atherton. It grew in size after the railroad was established and became the site of numerous vacation homes for San Franciscans during the early 1900’s. In modern times Atherton has been and is the home of many rich and famous people such as Charles Schwab, Shirley Temple, Meg Whitman, and Jerry Rice. Guy Kawasaki, the famous venture capitalist resides here, as does Fleetwood Mac member Lindsey Buckingham. Atherton, in 2017, landed on the very top of Bloomberg’s Richest Places index. This is quite incredible given that Manhattan made the second-place spot. Facebook, Google, and the famous Stanford University are all nearby Atherton. There are famous people here that don’t live here, but just have homes here such as Peyton Manning and John Elway. With big beautiful parks such as Holbrook-Palmer, Burgess, and Wunderlich, there is sure to be enough wilderness for your hiking, biking, jogging, and other outdoor pleasures.
Atherton is a tight-knit community of 7,000 members (US Census Bureau, July 2018) and as it is one of the most expensive places in the United States it’s no surprise that only a minute percentage of the population in California choose to live here. The median price for a home in Atherton is $5.9 million as of September 2019 according to Zillow an online real estate database. Last year in August 2018 the median price for a home in Atherton was $6.8 million, so we see a small decline in home value, about -12% over the last year (Zillow). Atherton has moderate weather and is a great place to enjoy outdoor sports such as tennis or golf. The average high temperatures in summer are around 80 degrees Fahrenheit and the average high temperatures in winter are around 60 degrees Fahrenheit with the hottest month being July and the coldest month being January (National Centers for Environmental Information, NOAA).
