"Country club living"

Located within the southern region of San Jose, Almaden Valley is an upper middle-class, open spaced neighborhood stretching from Blossom Hill Road to Harry Road. The area hosts a kind of rural and family-friendly atmosphere different than the many busy metropolitan neighborhood of San Jose. In some areas, the neighborhood offers almost perfect residential aesthetics. This is due, in part, to the many country clubs located near. As a result, Almaden Valley really gives off a sense of affluence that it might not have achieved just yet.

Situated at the base of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Almaden Valley shines as an almost exclusive residential neighborhood. Its a very large community with a total population approximating 37,000. They are usually among the various scientists, Silicon Valley executives, local professionals and athletes. For prospective residents, the area offers a comfortable living environment with lush green community aesthetics. Driving through the district you’ll find some leafy sidewalks and tree-lined streets that give off a comfortable ambiance. Houses are mixed between one and two-stories, with sizable lots, spacious driveways and two-car garages. They afford numerous new and polished homes with well-maintained front yards and trimmed landscaping. You’ll also be interested to know that the typical household rakes in around $90,000/year (due to the many singles that live in the area).

For young families, there are a variety of recreational options. Some families belong to the Almaden Country Club, which just so happens to be situated at the heart of the community, or the Almaden Quicksilver County Park, which lies adjacent to the neighborhood’s limits. If you don’t feel like forking over dues every month, there are also a number of nice-looking recreational parks for various activities (jogging, youth sports, etc.). Moreover, parents usually enroll their kids into the local Leland High School, but the institution has only garnered average reviews on greatschools.org. Many of these students also attend the nearby San Jose State University which is just so happens to be convenient trip down the road.
