The beautiful Country Club neighborhood, perched along the foothills of San Antonio Open Space Preserve, was aptly named after the Los Altos Golf & Country Club. This area was initially purchased by Santa Clara University as a second branch in the hopes that Los Altos would rival neighboring Palo Alto as an academic town.
North Los Altos was the first neighborhood of Los Altos to be developed and is steeped in history. The town was established in 1906 by Paul Shoup, who worked for Leland Stanford’s Southern Pacific Railroad. Paul Shoup rightfully promoted the town as “The Jewel of the Peninsula” and began selling land in 1908.
Just south of Permanente Creek, and nestled between Foothill Expressway and Highway 280, is a small neighborhood known dually as the Highlands and Woodland Acres. Comprised of 1,000 homes, it is a relatively small community that appeals to those who place priority on privacy, a valuable commodity made even more so after the pandemic.
