The San Antonio Hills neighborhood in Los Altos, California

Los Altos Neighborhood Spotlight - San Antonio Hills

Where Is It?
This prime area of Los Altos is actually unincorporated Santa Clara County land. The borders are Foothill Expressway, Magdelena Avenue, Ravensbury Avenue, and Permenente Creek.

Types of Homes and Land
Most homes in the area are new or newer and in a variety of styles from Mediterranean to contemporary. There are a lot of custom home styles that stand out including Cape Cod, Carmel-cottage, French Provincial. Home sizes start as small as a few hundred square feet to 6000+. Lot sizes tend to be larger than Los Altos standard with many lots in the 12000-15000 s.f. range. There are a lot of ranch-style homes left over from early development.

Special Features
The Los Altos Hills Country Club takes up a significant portion of the available land. Streets tend to be narrower than other areas of Los Altos but the larger lots offset that. Of course, the area is slightly hilly similar to the Highlands Area of South Los Altos. The HOA for the area is open to annexation but only by Los Altos Hills.

The area has an HOA with its own website. Visit here for even more details and history:
