Townhomes at Pepper Lane in the Berryessa area of San Jose

Why the Pepper Lane townhomes?

Several things make the Pepper Lane townhouses popular:

  • they enjoy highly regarded public schools, including Vinci Park Elementary School
  • they were built by Pulte Homes, a well respected builder
  • they are young – constructed between 2011 and 2015
  • they are located close to major commute routes, such as Highway 680
  • homes feature open layouts, spacious kitchens, high ceilings, attached garages, and some sort of outside space
  • the community provides a playground, a dog park, greenbelt areas, and a community center
  • the monthly HOA dues are low

While this neighborhood is close to a major freeway, the homes are surprisingly quiet inside. We found this to be true at another Pulte development in a similarly noisy area, too, at the Altura neighborhood, previously reviewed by us on this website. The double pane windows make an enormous difference.
