The first silicon semiconductor devices in what would come to be known as Silicon Valley were manufactured in Mountain View, California in 1956. Today, this town of 76,621 people still hosts some of the most influential tech companies in the Valley, including Google, Symantec, and Intuit. If you are looking for a new home, Mountain View might just be the right place for you.
Less than 40 miles from San Francisco, Mountain View has a mild, Mediterranean climate. At 35.9, the median resident age is near the national median age of 36.8. Many new homes are being constructed in the area, including a number of new green homes that incorporate local technology. The median household income is $84,460 and the mean house value is $789,300. Development varies from sprawling luxury homes to new condos near the city center. Downtown Mountain View boasts an excellent transit center for commuters, the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, and one of Silicon Valley’s few Michelin rated restaurants. Centered around Castro Street, Mountain View’s downtown also hosts weekly Farmer’s Markets, monthly summertime street fairs, and an annual Art and Wine Festival.
Mountain View communities are well maintained and have excellent public schools. The Santa Cruz Mountains for which the city was named are a short drive away, as is the Pacific Ocean. Mountain View is an ideal location for anyone looking to live in the center of Silicon Valley’s high tech action or anyone seeking a peaceful alternative to the traffic and crowds of San Francisco.
