What makes the Portola Valley Ranch so Special

Tucked away off Alpine Road in a magnificent setting of rolling hills and meadows is a very inviting planned community of approximately 200 homes.    Developed in the 70’s and 80’s with a mission of maintaining the natural environment, the PV Ranch created a unique living experience where the homes are designed to blend in with nature while hundreds of acres of open space were set aside as a focal point and an integral part of the design.   The end result is a bucolic and peaceful residential community offering miles of walking and hiking trails, wonderful opportunities for cycling, and a wonderful community recreation center with two pools, two tennis courts, a vineyard and community garden and a club house for resident members to enjoy.

The homes in the Ranch are built to offer maximum privacy in a cluster grouping that gives each property a unique view.  There are land use controls and an architectural committee that ensure that the natural setting is retained.  The Ranch offers an easy yet active lifestyle with all the advantages of single family living in a community that is dedicated to preserving the natural surroundings of the homes and the land.

Homes in the PV Ranch are hard to come by as turnover on an annual basis is low.  In 2013,  seven homes were sold through the Multiple Listing Service (mls) with at least two more sold off market in private sales.   If you have an interest in touring the PV Ranch or learning more about this special spot,  please give Ellen a call at 650.888.1886.   She would be happy to take you on the grand tour of this sought after community.   She has just welcomed another new family to the community in a pending sale in which she represented the Buyers at 5 Buckeye.
