Los Altos Hills
Los Altos Hills is the perfect home for those who enjoy privacy and outdoors, and luxurious homes on large lots with a close proximity to the bustle of Silicon Valley. Los Altos Hills is a residential-only town that is home to many technology entrepreneurs and venture capitalists who value its natural beauty and rural feel.
The town is remarkable in that it is so close to the heart of Silicon Valley businesses, yet it feels like you are in the country. Homes typically are set on a minimum of one acre lots and much of the surrounding “open space” that gives the town its bucolic ambiance is privately owned and maintained or has been donated to the town by wealthy residents who want to preserve its rural charm.
Los Altos Hills is ideal for those who enjoy the outdoors, and it is especially popular with equestrians, hikers and bicyclists. Several open space preserves and parks are within or adjacent to Los Altos Hills. Residents may board horses or participate in horseback riding programs at the Westwind Community Barn. One of the unique features of the town is its Pathway System—85 miles of meandering trails and paths that connect the community through paths for hikers, runners, bicyclists and horseback riders.
