Excellent area of choice. Right count on 40 minutes. The issue is in the morning as one leaves for work and school it is tedious to get through the front gates as it is very slow as it is a gated community.
In the evening you have to commute down 85.
Let us know if we can be of any help.
As others have said, it's not going to be a trivial matter. I don't drive it myself, but if others have car pooled, that might be an option which would definitely help - I know afternoon traffic from 4-6pm can be a monster.
Thanks for your post. As Guy noted below, the commute is dependent on the time when you leave. I have to say that the worst time to travel from Silver Creek to Cupertino would be between the hours of 8 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Before and after, the traffic is definitely lighter, but the commute will still be between 30-50 minutes. The worst section of the commute to Cupertino is on the ramp leading to De Anza Boulevard--this is heavily populated by Apple employees. You might find it far easier to take the Wolfe Road exit and then take Homestead to De Anza to shave some frustration from the commute. It isn't necessarily faster, but it does avoid the congestion of trying to navigate the off-ramp at De Anza, and, for some reason, there always seems to be an accident or two in this section, so, again, an inland route tends to avoid any problems associated with traffic.

I hope that helps, feel free to contact me with any questions.
I have lived in the country club for 13 years. I'd say the commute during the rush hours to Cupertino can be up to about 40 minutes or so. If you can avoid the rush hour commute, then it's about 20 - 25 minutes. It's a great place to live! I'm happy to answer any questions you might have about the schools, activities, etc. Feel free to email or call.
