Los Altos is one of the Bay Area's premier communities, due in large part to the city's natural beauty and convenient location between San Francisco and the Silicon Valley. Originally an agricultural town with many summer cottages, Los Altos is now a thriving bedroom community known for its beautiful parks, tree-lined streets, beautiful scenery, bucolic charm, quaint and vibrant downtown, top-notch schools, and unmatched location.
Tucked within a group of small rolling hills, the aptly named Los Altos Hills is a residential community in Santa Clara County, considered a bedroom community to the nearby town of Los Altos (which happens to be just over five miles from Palo Alto).
One of the largest draws is the relatively easy commute to Silicon Valley. That coupled with the privacy, sprawling estates, some lots that afford San Francisco Bay views, and access to open space preserves such as Rancho San Antonio and Westwind Barn, which transport residents a million miles away from the tech-boom’s pressure-filled center. Los Altos Hills also is about 40 miles from San Francisco.
Los Altos Hills is a direct reflection of emerging trends over time of both architecture and industry in California. There are no sidewalks or glaring street lamps here. Los Altos Hills offers a rural feel with horse and running trails, excellent access to nature preserves, horse properties and panoramic views, while still being a short commute to the campuses for Google, Apple and the heart of Silicon Valley.
