Almaden Valley Real Estate
The Almaden Valley is a bucolic haven in the undulating hills of San Jose's southernmost valley. Characterized by large, stately pieces of San Jose real estate spread out on tree-lined streets, this family-oriented community enjoys top-rate schools and abundant parks and open space. Despite its rural location, IBM's Almaden Research Center, along with scientists, executives and engineers, help this idyllic area on the outskirts of Los Gatos and Willow Glen to remain an important vein in the body of Silicon Valley. What's most unique about Almaden Valley real estate is the close-knit utopian feel of a small town set far away from big city life. Despite this area's proximity to bigger urban areas, children can play safely on neighborhood streets, neighbors are friendly and engaging, and community events ranging from block parties and barbecues to marathons and the Almaden Valley Art & Wine Festival keep everyone connected.
