Where should I start.
Toll Brothers is currently building in Sunnyvale. They have two townhome developments I believe that are still selling Verona and City Park. As far as Sunnyvale is concerned it is a wonderful community. It has a Trader Joes, good school district in some areas. Depending on where you live you in Sunnyvale can visit the largest Whole Foods in California in Cupertino or if its more convenient the Mountain View location. Sunnyvale also features a small downtown. Shopping you will have to drive 30 minutes to Standford shopping in Palo Alto or 25 mintues to Westfield Shopping or Santana Row in San Jose. About a 25 minute dirve to SJ Airport and 45 Minute to SF Airport.

Santa Clara is nice as well. It is centally located in the south bay. The nearest Trader Joes is in Sunnyvale about 15 minutes, Whole Foods is in Cupertino 20 minutes, and in some areas features good schools. It generally is more affordable than Sunnyvale. Its about 10 minutes from Santana Row and Westfield Shopping. About a 20 minute dirve to SJ Airport and 45 Minute to SF Airport
For a list of Santa Clara Homes:
Mountain View is great. Good schools in most parts. Although its a bit more pricey than Sunnyvale and Santa Clara, but features a Whole Foods, Trader Joes, a nice downtown with restuarants, 24 hour Fitness Super Sport, 20 minutes away from Stanford Shopping in Palo Alto. About a 35 minute drive to San Jose and San Franciso Airports.
For a list of Moutain View Homes:
Palo Alto is a great place to live. Much more expensive than Mountain View, a lot more expensive than Sunnyvale and Santa Clara. It has a Whole Foods, no Trader Joes, but the Moutain View/Los Altos location is close by 10-15 minutes. All the schools are top notch. I great downtown with restuarants, cafe's, and also has Stanford Shopping. About a 30 minute dirve to SJ Airport and 30 Minute to SF Airport.
For a list of Palo Alto Homes:
Cupertino is also another community that is well known for good schools. It is a nice community it has a Trader Joes, Whole Foods and is about 15 minutes from Santana Row and Westfield Shopping. San Jose Airport is about 25 mintues away.
for a list of Cupertino Homes:
The only area in San Jose or around San Jose that I would recommend based on your criteria would be West San Jose or Campbell. There is a whole Foods and a Trader Joes, and a quaint downtown area in Campbell, and also decent schools. San Jose airport is about 15 minutes away and San Francisco about 50 Minutes. Its about as affordable as Santa Clara.
For a list of Cambell Homes:
As far as day care, all the areas have various options. You will probably not want to go any farther east than Campbell based on what you are looking for. Also feel free to visit my website more information or give me a call. I would be happy to answer any of your questions.
Also if you are thinking of taking a trip out to the Bay area I would be happy to take you around to some of these areas and show you homes in their various markets.
