"Excellent street in the middle of good development"
Portola is in the middle of this patch of housing development that is sitting on top of a hill. People are friendly, and the houses are well kept. Lot sizes are fairly large for the size of the houses given that it is SSF. Lawns are well kept. Most of the people park on driveways or street. Given the age of the houses and the widths of modern cars, garages have become a glorified storage shed in stead of a place to rest a car. Mostly quiet neighborhood, but still close to everything.
