Atherton Oaks Apartments
Resident • 1994 - 2007 Recommended
The Atherton Oak's "Exclusive" Apartments were built by the McGrath family in the late 50's. They had build hundreds of "Garden Apartments" throughout the San Mateo and Santa Clara counties. There were in fact small pools and brick hot tubs as well as a "Community Gathering Area" where there were brick fire pits, Bar B Q's and more... The apartment complex had a small pond that made the local news many times for it's returning Mallard Ducks! There were No Two apartments alike, each Custom built. This is why so many Celebrities, such as the McClatchy family, Scott Holden, son of William Holden, Bridget Bardo, James Gavert and so many more found this as a primary and secondary "home." During the 50's and 70's under McGrath's ownership, there were no other apartments that could compare with Location and Communities! Just ask many of the those from Stanford University and Menlo College as well as the Power Brokers from San Francisco's financial district that made this unique place their home. Too bad the Garden Apartments have fallen to the way side...
