When looking for a home, what is most appealing about living in Portola Valley?


Hi Julie – I have been a Portola Valley resident since 1973. The town has quite a bit to offer but I think what draws most people is the balance between rural and urban. With more than 36 miles of trails, one feels (and is) surrounded by nature and unlimited outdoor activities. At the same time, Portola Valley has easy access to Highway 280, Sand Hill and Page Mill Roads – major arteries of the Silicon Valley. Portola Valley also offers a  number of neighborhoods that cater to different lifestyles from the modern luxury homes of Central Portola Valley to the old San Francisco summer retreats  nestled among the trees of the Los Trancos area (for more on Portola Valley neighborhoods, see  [Website removed by Zillow moderator. Please see our Good Neighbor Policy.]. Add to that award-winning schools, a farmer's market and community events of all types and for all ages, there is nothing one lacks living here.
