Welcome to Los Altos Hills
Tucked quietly between Los Altos and acres and acres of open space lies the very prestigious Town of Los Altos Hills
. Once wheat farms and apricot orchards, Los Altos Hills is now one of the country's most affluent towns with a median home price of $7,755,000 in 2017
. Land in Silicon Valley is sparse. With Los Altos Hills' minimum lot size of one acre, it is a town where one can purchase a little privacy.
Being that Los Altos Hills has a ban on commercial zones, the only two commercial operations are the book store on the campus of Foothill College and the gift shop on the grounds of the Immaculate Heart Monastery of the Poor Clare Colettines
. The town does not have a post office or library. That being said, Los Altos Hills is home to some very influential members of C-Suites in the most successful tech companies of Silicon Valley. As of May 31, 2018, Los Altos Hills was officially the wealthiest town in America.
Owners of property in Los Altos Hills have an easement for public pathways. When you meet long-time residents, you'll hear stories of horses being ridden across the many paths that cross the gorgeous land, most of which offers gorgeous views of the bay.
Los Altos Hills' weather is very pleasant year-around, and supported the orchards that used to dominate the landscape there.
All of the Hills are in an unincorporated area and so is served by both the Palo Alto School District, in the most norther part of the town, and the Los Altos School District in the rest. Either way, both school districts consistently rank in the best districts in the state.
In 1976 the beautiful fifteen acre parcel was donated to the town. Almost any iconic photo of Los Altos Hills consists somewhere of the beautiful Westwind Barn
, including the one above. It is a horse-boarding and training facility, as well as a wonderful place to watch sunset.
Los Altos Hills is also home to the beautiful Ranch San Antonio Preserve,
offering an almost 4,000-acre open space area for hiking, picnics and more. Hidden Villa
, stretching over 1,600 acres of open space, offering educational experiences connecting people inspiring a deeper respect for nature, food and one another, is also in beautiful Los Altos Hills.
