Thanks a lot for all of your insights. I spent more time around the property and I do like the location.
It seems to be far enough from 237, central, and 85, that I dont hear the noise.
Yes... no yard :(. I would have to rely on outsourced yards (e.g. Landels elementary school
and stevens creek trail). That neighborhood, old mountain view, in between calderon and
castro seems to be pretty pedestrian friendly. I have seen young couples, mothers with
strollers, and average folk walking about in the evening.
In Mtn View, the other option in the roughly high 8s to mid 9s range seems to be a house in the Monta
Loma neighborhood. Monta Loma Elementary and Landels seem to be about the same
quality. Anything with Bubb or Huff is too pricey!
