Mountain View is considered the birthplace of Silicon Valley and remains at its hub, particularly due to its being the home of the worldwide headquarters of Google. The town has a wonderful blend of tech, commercial, and residential and is known for its outdoor lifestyle. There are miles of trails along the shoreline of the San Francisco Bay, a fabulous amphitheater that attracts the biggest names in music and entertainment, plus a great downtown area with all kinds of shops and restaurants. Parks are sizable and seem to appear at every turn. Diversity is celebrated throughout the town, and each neighborhood exhibits a strong sense of community. Schools play a major role in selecting where to live, and many are highly regarded. Industrial parks and tech centers tend to be on the north side of town, mixed with many newer townhome and condominium developments. Home styles run the gamut from vintage ranches to sleek new contemporaries. Lot sizes are generally under one-quarter or one-third acre and therefore home sizes stay within scale.
Single-family homes in Mountain View range from about $1.2 million to $4.5 million. There are many condominium/townhome complexes, and these range from about $550,000 to $2.3 million.
