The house is built in a U shape around an enclosed courtyard providing privacy, fresh air, natural lighting and comfort in the heart of Santa Clara Valley, A fenced back yard and the enclosed court yard in front offer outdoor living space (ideal for children and/or a small dog). The property is more spacious and private then what you will ever find at a hotel, condo or apartment.

Relax in a sunken living room under a cathedral ceiling, on white leather sofas, with a 42' HDTV and fireplace. Books, games, videos, and toys, are available for entertaining children.

Cook in a gourmet kitchen, complete with granite counters and top of the line stainless steel appliances. The large family style kitchen is fully equipped with, dishes, stemware, cookware, even cookie sheets, oils and spices. The kitchen table will easily seat eight.

Walk just a little further to Safeway, Office Depot, Sprout Farmer's Market, Pet Depot, Wells Fargo, Starbucks, Trader Joe's, and Twenty-Four Hour Nautilus. The possibilities are endless!

Sunnyvale is in the heart of Silicon Valley, near the southern end of San Francisco Bay, between Palo Alto and San Jose. The area is a gateway to many world renowned technology companies such as Yahoo!, Intel, Apple, Google, HP, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Cisco, Facebook, Palo Alto Networks. The house is relatively close to major event centers such as Levi’s Stadium, the San Jose Shark Tank- SAP Center and the new Home of the Earthquakes - Avaya Stadium. The San Jose International Airport (SJC)is a twenty-five minute drive from the house. Highways 680, 880 and 280, 101 and 85 make access to many iconic and historic areas convenient.

For COLLEGE, GRADUATIONS & WEDDINGS: Santa Clara University, San Jose State, Stanford, and the area’s best wedding venues are all very nearby including Mission Santa Clara de Asis, Villa Montalvo, Los Gatos and The Mountain Winery.

SPORTS: Levi’s Stadium, Home of Super Bowl 50 is less than six miles, drive from this ideal Sunnyvale house. Drive less than three miles to the George F. Haines International Swim Center, the site of international swim meets, and a "home" for world-class and Olympic swimmers, divers, and synchronized swimmers. The SAP Center, home of San Jose Sharks, is only nine miles out the front door. Don’t miss the San Francisco Giants play at AT&T, only forty-five miles away.

MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS: Kaiser Permanente Hospital is only three miles from the house; Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Stanford Hospital, El Camino Hospital, Palo Alto Medical Foundation, and O'Connor Hospital are all close by.

Some of our favorites are Santana Row http://www.santanarow.com, Westfield Valley Fair (four miles away), Stanford Shopping Center (fifteen miles away) and Carmel-by-The-Sea (about seventy-five miles). The outlet shopping in Gilroy and Livermore are an easy thirty minutes away.

Drive about thirty-five miles to the SANTA CRUZ beaches for boating, surfing, beach combing and a great amusement arcade (http://www.santacruz.org). Hike, ride a zip line, bike, or train through the beautiful redwood forests of the Santa Cruz Mountains (http://www.everytrail.com/best/hiking-santa-clara-california and http://www.roaringcamp.com). Or, drive up the coast to SAN FRANCISCO (http://www.sanfrancisco.travel) and walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, explore Angel Island and experience Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf, Lombard Street, Union Square, and Golden Gate Park. The scenery, fresh air, and vibrations are unforgettable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: This has been our primary home for many years. I was a teacher in Sunnyvale for thirty four years, and my husband had an automotive repair business. We are retired now, and like to travel. When we are away, our fully furnished, well equipped three bedroom/two bath single family dream home is rented to others. Our daughter lives directly across the street, and serves as hostess in our absence. We appreciate doing business with our guests and love having a home to come back too.

Why the Owner Chose Sunnyvale West, Sunnyvale, CA, USA:
We like the climate and the location. The house is center of a 35 mile radius extending to San Francisco, The Pacific Coast, Montery Bay and the CA redwood forests. Sunnyvale is cooled by a gentle breeze from the San Francisco Bay in the afternoons. It is a short bike ride to the wet lands, and a very short walk to the neighborhood park or other local favorites like Starbucks, Trader Joes, Borders, a work out room, and swimming at the 24 Hour Nautilus or the public library.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Because of its central location, play can be easily combined with work, school, family and medical needs. The house is within a three mile radius of Apple, HP, Intel, Yahoo, IBM, Micro Soft, Symantec, Netflix, Moffet Field, Kaiser and El Camino Hospitals and the University of Santa Clara.. It is only nine miles from Stanford Unniversity and San Jose State University. Bottom line: The house is more affordable than a 5* hotel, more private than an apartment, more spacious than a condo, and more central than most other options.
