Mapping the Ten Most Expensive Homes for Sale in Atherton

View as Map

With yesterday's news that Atherton continues to be the nation's most expensive zip code, we thought it best to map the most expensive homes currently for sale in the small but extremely posh neighborhood. All of the properties are single-family homes, and not a single one is listed for less than eight figures. Quite a few of the properties are in the very exclusive Menlo Circle Club area of West Atherton, so do pick up one of these abodes if you're looking for an in to the equestrian center. As expected from estates of this nature, almost all of them have outdoor heated pools, wine cellars, tennis courts, and other glamorous bells and whistles.
