Considered by many to be the most prestigious city in all of Santa Clara County, the Town of Los Altos Hills is the chosen home to many of Silicon Valley’s most prominent executives and successful entrepreneurs. The minimum lot requirement is one acre, so elegant mansions and handsome custom homes often grace sprawling acreage. Many homes offer superb amenities such as tennis courts, swimming pools, and equestrian facilities. As you might expect, the building and zoning codes designed to protect this exceptional area tend to be more complex than those of most communities. Laws are in place to protect the lovely redwoods and oaks as well as other large trees.
Foothill College infuses vitality into the local cultural scene, offering a speaker’s program that draws names like Jimmy Carter and Colin Powell. The scenic freeway of Interstate 280 provides a quick trip to the many amenities that are waiting at Stanford University, from performing arts to museums and galleries.
Area youth have the advantage of being within the jurisdiction of the renowned Los Altos School District, and Santa Rita and Bullis-Purrissima have received national blue ribbons for academic excellence. A stable and closely knit community, residents of Los Altos have a tendency to know their neighbors and enjoy the rich and lasting friendships that characterize small-town living.
