Nowhere else is the academic spirit of Silicon Valley so historically iconic. In fact, the Professorville neighborhood is a registered historic district. It’s aptly named after a group of young professors who first bought this land in 1891 in order to find housing as close to Stanford University as possible without having to lease land from the University itself. Homes here, which originally sat on massive lots, have since been sectioned off and sold in lots of varying sizes. Styles, too, are an eclectic mix. Most houses are characterized by their brown shingled roofs, though house structures vary from Spanish to Dutch Colonial to American Craftsman. Ancient oaks line the streets, most as old as the homes.
The entire area exudes the same vibes as other historic, affluent neighborhoods in Palo Alto, like nearby Crescent Park and Old Palo Alto. Professorville is sectioned off by Embarcadero Rd, Addison Ave, Emerson St, and Cowper St. It’s a pedestrian-forward neighborhood, and amenities like the Town & Country Village shopping center and the Palo Alto Caltrain station are just a short stroll or bike away.
