Downtown Los Altos, close to Los Altos Hills

Los Altos Hills has the honor of being home to many of Santa Clara County’s top professionals. Originally known as a place for wealthy San Franciscans who were escaping the fog, Los Altos Hills was incorporated in 1956 to control development. Located in the hills above Silicon Valley, this city is now stable, established and intimate. Offering gorgeous valley views, Los Altos Hills homes are on one-acre lots minimum. Trees overhang many roads, creating shady tunnels of leaves and branches, which shelter mansions of elegance and taste, many of which have pools and tennis courts. This is also an area for equestrians and it is not uncommon to find quality stables on properties. Laws in Los Altos Hills protect the area’s lush redwoods, oaks and vegetation. Some locals enjoy membership in the local country club and many take advantage of the cultural life offered through Foothill Community College. Walkers enjoy the many paths that meander throughout town and there are various other recreational opportunities throughout the area including golf, tennis and horseback riding. Served by the Los Altos School District, schools in the area score very high with Santa Rita and Bullis-Purissima having received national blue ribbons for academic excellence.
