The Grant/Sylvan Park vicinity is an attractive neighborhood featuring exquisite gated homes and a community of single family dwellings. During its early days the Grant area represented the heart of Mountain View homesteading vast orchards fields. The historic Mercer House (1900c.), located on 2221 Grant Road, is a breathtaking example of Queen Anne style architecture. Built for the sons of Charles H. Mercer, a San Francisco based candy manufacturer, this historical landmark is nestled in an area still surrounded by beautiful estate homes and relatively private roads disconnected from main thoroughfares.
(Bounded on the north by Central Expressway and reaching to Mountain View’s southern and eastern division. El Camino Real runs perpendicular to lengthy Grant Road.)
