"Pocket of Nice Homes"

Yet another little outcropping of DotCom mcmansions tucked away just off Foot Hill Road, Foothill Place is barely more than three lanes. Nice big contemporary style homes are the invariable norm here. Each home is slightly different—this is not one of those completely homogenous neighborhoods, although there does seem to be some basic rules to all the homes: they are all about the same size and all very well kept. It is as if they were planned to be individual, but all individualized in the same way.

These are, of course, million plus dollar homes, with big yards and nice pools.

Arroyo de la Laguna—a gully with a canal in it--is on the far eastern end of Foothill Place and marks the border of this pocket neighborhood. You have to go over a little iron bridge to get to the freeway. It is almost, though not quite, quaint.
