Atherton, a town 35 minutes south of San Francisco, is as beautiful as it is prestigious. Ranked among the top 5 wealthiest zip codes for the past decade, Atherton is the home of many Bay Area business moguls. Nestled between the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean, Atherton begins in the flatlands then moves westward to the hills, until it reaches Highway 280. Beautiful foliage, elegant gardens and heritage trees dominate this quiet small community. Atherton is still a “plain of oaks." Native live oaks, bay trees, redwood trees, cedars, pines and other ornamental trees cover the six square miles of land. The Town is bordered by areas of Menlo Park, Redwood City, Woodside, and unincorporated San Mateo County. There are 49 miles of roads in Atherton and approximately 2502 households with no industry or business establishment within the town limits. Once part of a Spanish rancho, the town was incorporated in 1923. One of its first rules was to assure that lots would not be subdivided into parcels smaller than an acre. With a few exceptions — primarily former San Mateo County streets acquired through annexation — that is still the rule today.
