Silicon Valley real estate is outrageously expensive, but perhaps nowhere is this more true than in the quiet town of Atherton, Calif.
The town of 7,000 was recently named the most expensive zip code in the country.
Tech billionaires Paul Allen, Eric Schmidt, and Meg Whitman all currently own homes here. Sheryl Sandberg also lived in Atherton before she moved into her new waterfall-equipped home in nearby Menlo Park last year.
According to Curbed SF, the median listing price in Atherton is a whopping $US9.44 million. While the median sales price for San Francisco is $US950,000, in Atherton, it rises to $US4.59 million.
