"Where the Foxy Fatcats Live"

Foxbrough Estates on the far eastern end of Pleasanton is a pretty posh suburban niche. It’s not a very big neighborhood but it stands out because it is filled with a clutch of mini-mansions all in one spot. These are big newer homes with long driveways and perfectly manicured front lawns. They are bigger than most of your homes in Pleasanton and exude that “we’ve made it and have extra money to burn feel” of upper class neighborhoods.

Each home is fairly distinctive here, though all of them are in that newer Contemporary style. These are totally million dollar homes, many probably selling for closer to $2 million. If these homes were not in Pleasanton but in the Peninsula or some high property value place like that these home prices would probably sore into the multi-million dollar range.

As it is, this is definitely where the Pleasanton elites live. This is also one of the few places in Pleasanton that is not flat—the Foxbrough streets (all with “Fox” in their names, Gray Fox Circle, Gray Fox Court, etc.) are on a bit of an up-cropping or bluff, so that you get a bit of a view of the valley.

Schools are, of course, really strong here. Vintage Hills Elementary having top scores as do the other Pleasanton grades.
Crime is pretty much non-existent here as well.

Basically, it is like living over by Palo Alto but not having the sky-rocketing prices. Just a million or two for your home—pocket change, really.
Pros
  • Attractive Mini-mansions
  • Great Schools
  • Quiet and Somewhat Secluded
Cons
  • Expensive, of Course
  • A Bit Out of the Way
  • Probably a Little Snooty
