The Almaden Winery Neighborhood of San Jose

The Almaden Winery neighborhood, just off Blossom Hill Road in San Jose, has a rich and interesting past, dating back to the mid 1850s when the site was first planted with grape vines.  It was the first winery in Almaden Valley and one of the oldest in the state of California.  (It survived the prohibition period by getting licensed to make sacramental wine and by bottling grape juice.)

In this post I’ll share some photos of the neighborhood with you, explain about the three different builders/developers and show you where to find each one.

The amazing back yard at 4843 Englewood Drive: why is it so large?

While many houses in San Jose are set far back from the street, giving an impression of a large lot, most have small back yards.  Buyers would prefer that the land be in back, where it would be more used. And that is the case with this home! The house at 4843 Englewood Dr, San Jose, CA 95129 was built forward on the lot, so the 8231 SF lot is largely usable in back – and is a real treat! Check out Google’s satellite view for the perspective.

Here, only a portion of the large patio is shown – but there’s loads of room for entertaining under the stars!

 

Patio and Yard

 

The rest of the yard includes a lawn area, a playground area, and planting beds – but with so much room, you can decide whether you want a pool, a place for a trampoline, or what?  Or expand the house into the patio area and still have tons of yard space left.

The Santa Teresa area within the City of San Jose

Silver Leaf Park in the Santa Teresa area of San Jose

Silver Leaf Park in the Santa Teresa area of San Jose

A scenic, more affordable part of San Jose with excellent freeway access is the Santa Teresa region, which is perhaps the southernmost part of the city. The east foothills and the Santa Teresa foothills create pleasant views and some areas are still rural. Price ranges have a wide gap between lowest and highest, with some luxury properties in some of the hilly eastern side. Most of the homes for sale, though, are less than the median or average for San Jose as a whole.

Where is the Santa Teresa area?

Per the MLS, the Santa Teresa district of San Jose spans a few zip codes (95119, 95138, 95139 and a little bit of 95123 north of 85 and the 95119 zip code). (The city of San Jose has a different map that includes far more of 95123.) An easier description might be the area close to where Highway 101 and Highway 85 intersect in South San Jose, or the area through which Santa Teresa Boulevard runs. It is north of the Coyote Valley, it  borders on Blossom Valley and the southern part of Evergreen, and is just over the hills from the Almaden Valley. It truly is South San Jose, and part of it even has Morgan Hill Schools, though most of the area is served by the Oak Grove School District.

The Santa Teresa foothills include gorgeous, large open space, the Santa Teresa County Park. It’s a wonderful place to walk or hike, and for suburban dwellers, easy access to rural or natural space, even within the city.

Some of the better known neighborhoods in Santa Teresa are these:

  • Avenida Espana (95119 zip, has Morgan Hill Schools – Bernal Road is the cutoff)
  • Chantilly (95119 zip, has Morgan Hill Schools)
  • Edenvale (kind of a sub-district)
  • Sunspring
  • Silver Leaf (near Silver Leaf Park, between Monterey Highway & Hwy 101 – 95138 zip code)
  • Basking Ridge (newer homes on a small hill just over 101 – one of the last subdivisions you see before hitting the open countryside, north of Metcalf Road – 95138 zip code)
  • Los Paseos (95119 zip, has Morgan Hill Schools)
  • California Maison
  • Burning Tree
  • Martinvale Vineyard
  • Rancho Santa Teresa
  • Oak Ridge
  • Makati
  • Anderson
  • Miner
  • Oak Grove
  • Deer Run
  • Great Oaks
