According to the latest information released by Architectural Digest, it is now the 3rd richest zip code in the nation. The pricest zip code now is 94027. Located in San Mateo County in the Bay Area, Atherton is the most expensive zip code in the US. To some, that is a bit controversial. Many housing advocates believe the town's zoning restrictions exclude and metaphorically gate the community by allowing only one single-family dwelling per acre and no sidewalks.
