Campbell CA real estate is among the most desirable in Silicon Valley. This popular town is known for being self contained with a vibrant, walk-able downtown, lots of parks (including a dog park, shared with neighboring Los Gatos), the Los Gatos Creek Trail, movie theaters, a nice variety of restaurants, great shopping (both downtown, at the Pruneyard, and along major roads such as Winchester Boulevard and Bascom Avenue).
Cambpell provides good transportation as Highway 17 / 880 runs nearby (accessed via Hamilton or Camden Avenues) on one side and San Tomas Expressway on the other. Additionally, there’s an especially helpful light rail station in downtown, making Campbell one of the most accessible areas of the valley.
Campbell has a strong business presence, too, with E Bay offices along Hamilton being noteworthy.
What are homes like in Campbell?
The older section of Cambell, near downtown, features beautiful Victorian and other classic, older homes from the turn of the last century. Much of the city offers single story, ranch style houses (as is the case throughout the San Jose area or the San Francisco Bay Area), but it’s not exclusively ramblers or one story houses. Two stories, split level, and other architectural styles can be found, too, including Tudor, French, and Spanish Revival, among others.
Further, condos & townhouses (young and old), multi-family (duplex to fourplex) and newer 2 story houses can be found in this small city, too.
Rental accommodations vary too. On top of the regular assortment of apartments and other types of homes to rent, downtown Campbell also enjoys senior living opportunities. A new independent and assisted living place opened not too long ago along Winchester Blvd, Merrill Gardens. (Disclaimer: I have not been there personally to check it out, but am hearing good things about it.) Campbell is a place for people of all ages!
