Quality of Life
Residents enjoy spacious lots, many with inspiring views of the Bay, western hills or tree-studded valleys. It is a virtual oasis set within one of the most densely populated areas of California, and yet it enjoys easy access to Silicon Valley, San Jose and San Francisco. While it does not have its own public school system, children attend either the highly acclaimed Los Altos or Palo Alto schools, depending on the enrollment area of their home. Those that want to be situated somewhere closer to LA, with plentiful amenities, a good quality of life and a pleasant community may want to buy a house in Rolling Hills Estates if they see their dream home as being in that particular area.
Other special aspects of the community are:
- Open Space Preservation, including Byrne preserve along Altamont Road that traverses the ridge of Los Altos Hills. Bucolic views of rolling hills and horses grazing are delightful.
- The unique pathway system of about 85 miles that meanders around the town, connecting most of the community.
- Proximity to downtown Los Altos.
