CA Palo Alto Palo Alto Orchards

Though the fruit trees that used to fill this region have been replaced with post-WWII Eichler homes and 50’s cottages in tight cul-de-sacs, its charming, idyllic quality remains. This neighborhood, located right off Arastradero Rd next to the larger Barron Park neighborhood, attracts families and residents looking for a safe, peaceful lifestyle.

Homes here range in size in the mid-1000s of sq ft, and are typically on the more compact side with just two or three beds and one bath. In this neighborhood, city regulations restrict house expansions over a maximum size in order to prevent overcrowding and protect privacy. As an alternative, some residents have turned to renovating by building second stories.

The neighborhood overall is relatively small, comprised of just 5 streets about 100 homes. It’s more affordable than other areas in the city, attracting young couples and new families as well as working professionals and recent grads. Its location makes it a convenient walking or biking distance away from local public schools Juana Briones Elementary, Fletcher Middle School, and Gunn High School.
