House Hunt: South of Seminary/Vintage Oaks

Old and newer neighborhoods mix together along Middlefield Road.

Tucked away between Coleman Ave, Middlefield and Santa Monica is the developed neighborhood of Vintage Oaks.  Once a part of , this 46 acre area began development in 1994, with home building beginning in 1997. 

131 homes and 14 duet-town homes were constructed on winding streets and cul-de-sacs.  Most homes are between 2,700 and 3,600 square feet in size, and are two stories in height. By mixing architectural styles such as Tudor, craftsman, English cottage and Spanish, the neighborhood looks less like a development. The well maintained landscapes and lack of overgrown trees and shrubs gives it a fresh and tidy appearance.  

Close to and as well as legal, financial and professional service offices on Middlefield, Vintage Oaks is a quiet neighborhood occupied by young professionals and families.  The average age of the residents is mid-thirties.  High quality schools are nearby including Menlo-Atherton High School just down the road on Middlefield.  

Next door to Vintage Oaks is an older neighborhood known as South of Seminary that contains a on the corner of Santa Monica and Middlefield.  Residents there like to keep in touch with each other on the Fourth of July and in the fall have a block party on Nash Avenue.   The average home price for both neighborhoods combined is around $1.9 million.
