Property description

This beautiful Santa Clara home is perfectly located to experience all the Bay Area has to offer. Minutes from Silicon Valley’s major technology companies, shopping, restaurants, sporting events, California nature and medical centers.

A fenced back yard and a covered patio offer additional outdoor living space ideal for children and a small dog. It is more spacious and private then what you will find at a hotel, condo or apartment. It is the ideal home base to relax.

Beautifully furnished in a Pottery Barn-like style with special attention paid to exclusive extras including high-speed cable, Wi-Fi, and a 50” HDTV. The open kitchen with stylized wood cabinetry, beautiful granite countertops and quality appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator to fill with grocery favorites and a Bosch dishwasher for easy cleanup. Cookware, dishes and cutlery are all included for enjoyable in home dining and entertaining your friends and family.

The three comfortable bedrooms are ready to sleep up to six of your nearest and dearest. The master suite opens onto a covered patio with seating. The second bedroom, also with a queen-sized bed, and the third bedroom with two twin-sized beds, share the hallway guest bathroom.

A laundry area and two-car garage are included as well. The neighborhood is quiet and welcoming. Less than two blocks walk away, is a neighborhood park, complete with tennis courts.

Santa Clara is the heart of Silicon Valley. A gateway to many world renowned technology companies such as Yahoo!, Intel, Apple, Google, HP, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Cisco, Facebook, Palo Alto Networks and major event centers such as Levi’s Stadium, the San Jose Shark Tank- SAP Center and the new Home of the Earthquakes - Avaya Stadium. Located right off of Highway 101, very near the San Jose International Airport (SJC) and connected to Highways 680, 880 and 280. There are many iconic and historic areas and experiences to be found in nearby Mountain View, Palo Alto, Los Gatos and Santa Cruz. San Francisco is a straight shot North about 45 minutes and important California universities including Santa Clara University, Stanford and San Jose State University, surround the area. https://visitsantaclara.wordpress.com

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 6 miles, drive from this ideal Santa Clara house. Walk or drive 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 9 miles out the front door. Don’t miss the San Francisco Giants play at AT&T, only 45 miles away.

MEDICAL APPOINTMENTS: Kaiser Permanente Hospital is only 1 mile from the house; Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Stanford Hospital, El Camino Hospital, Palo Alto Medical Foundation, and O'Connor Hospital are all a quick drive away.


SHOPPING: There are endless opportunities to shop in Santa Clara as well as anywhere from the East Bay to San Francisco. Some of our favorites are Santana Row http://www.santanarow.com, Westfield Valley Fair (4 miles away), Stanford Shopping Center (15 miles away) and Carmel-by-The-Sea (76 miles). Oh, and outlet shopping in Gilroy and Livermore are an easy 30 minutes away.

ENTERTAINMENT PARKS & MUSUEMS: Great America Theme Park, less than 5 miles; great museums including the Tech Museum of Innovation, San Jose Museum of Art and the Rosicrucian are all no more than 9 miles away; Shoreline Park (SF Bay Wetlands), 10 miles; All amazing places for the entire family to explore.

ADVENTURE: The surrounding sights, sounds and sensations are unforgettable. Drive about 35 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. Down the coast in the other direction is MONTEREY BAY Aquarium, 'Seventeen Mile Drive', Carmel and many golf courses along the way – Spy Glass and Spanish Bay are favorites (http://www.monterey.com).

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1995

About: I was born and raised in California, as were my children. The weather, opportunities and the variety of things do is what I love about Santa Clara. After 25 years of management in the technology industry, I decided to convert our long-term rental property into a vacation rental. Both my mother and sister have been in the vacation rental industry for many years, so it has been really nice sharing best practices with them.. Creating a 'home' away from home, and sharing our favorites for others to enjoy has become a family passion that I share with my husband, parents, sister and children.

Why Santa Clara, CA, USA:
This is the perfect home base for family visits, work, sports fans, medical needs, adventure and entertainment. The house is spotlessly clean and spacious with a private patio and large yard with garden. It is located in a quiet neighborhood and very close to major entertainment/sporting events, medical care and education for all ages. Santa Clara is cooled by a gentle breeze from the San Francisco Bay during summer afternoons, and the area has a relatively mild winters.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This three bedroom, single family home has a wonderful, private fenced back yard and covered patio. It provides a haven of rest in the heart of Silicon Valley and a bike ride to the Apple Campus. The house is more affordable than a 5* hotel, more private than an apartment, more spacious than a condo, more central than most other options and, it's very convenient!
