Thinking of moving to the much beloved Almaden Valley area of San Jose? Almaden Valley neighborhoods vary in size, schools, and area amenities from one to the next, so reading up on the smaller communities that make up this scenic district will help you to locate just the right area for you! (You will find a list of Almaden neighborhoods at the bottom of this article. It is getting updated often, so check back!)

Why Almaden Valley neighborhoods?

For many home buyers, the choice to move to an Almaden Valley neighborhood is largely about the quality of the public schools and the amount of home that can be purchased relative to other areas with good schools such as Cupertino, Saratoga, and Los Gatos. Some may want Leland, others Pioneer, Leigh, or Los Gatos High (a tiny sliver of San Jose 95120 is in the LGHS attendance area).

For others, it may be about the commute, which is not too bad to downtown San Jose.

Almaden is slightly younger than many parts of San Jose, such as Cambrian (and much younger than Willow Glen). The newness of construction can be very enticing to home buyers not wanting to deal with older home issues.

For those wanting scenic views, rather than flat areas away from hills, this part of San Jose offers abundant opportunities of the hills, from the hills, or perhaps across a golf course. Almaden can feel a little less urban, a little less crowded, because of these scenic vistas.
