"Friendly street in a busy city"

Shamrock Drive is very near the border of San Jose but is actually considered part of Campbell. This unincorporated area of the county consists of older family homes. The neighbors are extremely friendly, doing an annual neighborhood wide yard sale each year, with people of all ages living there.

Parts of the street don't have sidewalks and look a little more rundown. You probably want to look around in the 300 or 400 block to find the nicer homes. Also, since this area is unincorporated you get your utilities from the county rather than the city.

Backyards are huge in this neighborhood so even though your neighbors seem close on the left and right you get a sense of space when you look out your back door. There are lots of trees and most of the yards are very well kept.

The street is located off of Bascom and near San Tomas Expressway. This will get you to highway 85, 17, or 280 pretty quickly if you need to commute out of the area. There are plenty of restaurants on Bascom including my favorite Indian restaurant, Taj Mahal.
