Any pros and cons for the properties near NORTHAMPTON LN, Belmont? Any feedback on community and schools?

Asked by Home Buyer, 94402 Mon Dec 5, 2011

If anyone has any feedback on this community (Homeview / Sterling Downs), we will appreciate it.

Help the community by answering this question:


Are prices for these houses (Northampton Ln) driven by elementary schools or proximity to Oracle? We have just heard from the Belmont-Redwood shores school district that from next year, there will be no elementary school district boundaries for Belmont-Redwood shores district. So does buying an expensive house make sense when an elementary school is not guaranteed? What if our kid ends up going to Nesbit elementary which has poor rating and API scores compared to Sandpiper elementary?

The Homeview/Sterling Downs area (near Nesbitt Elementary School) although at close proximity to Northampton is quite different. This area has a better neighborhood feel than the area on the other side of Ralston Ave. If you love Belmont and its excellent schools, then this would be a good neighborhood to think about as a starter home. The easy access to the elementary school, Hwy 101, the Belmont Sports Complex, the Belmont train station, etc. are some of the amenities.
Northampton is in a newer development (right across Oracle) consisting of townhouses and detached single family homes. There is a monthly HOA to maintain the common areas. The lot size of these homes tends to be smaller, so not much yard work for you to worry about. It is a small development that is well kept and desirable. Check out the long Bay trails by Belmont Slough and enjoy a run or walk. You will sure meet outdoor enthusiasts.
Good luck!
