The Villas of Almaden is a private, gated community, often described by its residents as ‘an oasis’ within the Almaden Valley in
San Jose, California.

Consisting of 180 townhomes with attached garages nestled in both hilly and valley terrain, the Villas are graced by ancient oak trees and roaming deer, as well as squirrels and birds throughout the landscape. Homeowners value the peaceful ambiance of the Villas and find it a welcome retreat from the fast pace of Silicon Valley. Yet this ‘oasis’, located near Meridian Avenue and Coleman Road, is convenient to major shopping centers and golf courses.

Residents enjoy a large, redecorated 2-story clubhouse, two swimming pools, a spa and sauna, lighted tennis courts, a racketball court and other facilities. This community borders several parks, including the Guadalupe Oak Grove Park, which is open to the public, but preserved in a natural state. While all ages are accommodated, many retirees have found the Villas to be the perfect solution for relatively trouble-free living, as maintenance — exterior painting, roof and gutters, landscaping, swimming pool and other services, including security, are included in monthly association fees.

Living space in the homes range from 1750 to nearly 3000 sq. ft. and homes are clustered in 2 to 4 units, including approximately 20 homes that stand alone. Careful thought was given to maximize privacy and to reduce noise from adjacent neighbors.  Numerous homes have vistas of the nearby hills or the city skyline; many others have serene views of ancient valley oaks.

 

Baby Fawn-2 The Villas offer many ways in which residents may choose to become involved (or not) by participating in committees or on the Board of Directors for the Homeowners’ Association, the governing body for the Villas. As opportunities become available, residents may join committees such as landscaping, architectural control, communications, safety and well-being, social get-togethers and others. Resident participation fosters teamwork within the community and helps keep association fees to a minimum.
