Where can you find gated communities in San Jose or Silicon Valley? There aren’t many of them! (It is a myth, however, that the Silver Creek Valley Country Club is the only one in Silicon Valley. That’s just not true.) There are fewer than a dozen, though, and in this post I’ll provide some basic info on each and links to the home owner association for each so you can learn more if you so desire.
Most of these enclaves include neighborhood pools. Some also boast golf courses, spas and restaurants.
In the Evergreen area of San Jose (the east foothills), there are two gated residential neighborhoods: The Villages, which is a retirement community for seniors (and has age restrictions) and the Silver Creek Valley Country Club, which is the largest and best known gated community in Santa Clara County. A large complex and elegantly appointed, the Silver Creek Valley Country Club is also the most expensive of the gated communities.
