We are a family of four, two young teenagers, and have a comfortable ranch style home in a cul de sac. We have a large kitchen, separate living and family rooms and 2 1/2 baths. We have 2 TV's with hundreds of channels and a PS2. We have wireless access as well. Our backyard is large, and lovely with a large pool, diving board and hot tub that seats 6! We spend summers bbq'ing and relaxing in our sunny backyard. We have a vegetable garden, some fruit trees (help yourself) and lots of flowers in the yard.
Saratoga is at the edge of Silicon Valley, quiet but easy access to any kind of activity from outdoor sports to concerts. We are close to grocery stores, shopping centers, the library and many parks and trails. In less than an hour you can be in the heart of San Francisco, an hour more and you can explore the wine country. We go to the beach frequently and can provide wetsuits and boogieboards for 4. It's only a half hour away with about 10 good beaches to choose from, not to mention the Santa Cruz Boardwalk which is an amusement park on the beach - a plus for the kids. In 5 hours you can be in Lake Tahoe enjoying hiking, biking and the scenery.
I am a Project Specialist at Cisco Systems and have worked in Silicon Valley in high tech companies my whole life. My husband Glenn works for 3M as an Account Manager. He is quite handy so if anything goes wrong at your home, he can fix it! His hobby is cars and he has a gorgeous '71 Alfa Romeo in the garage (strictly for viewing!). Our son is 13 and is very active in sports..baseball, soccer, wrestling and band (saxophone). Our daughter is 11 and is CRAZY about horses. Unfortunately we can't own one here but she takes a lot of lessons. She is also an avid swimmer and plays saxophone. We are happy to trade cars and have a 2003 Honda Van with air conditioning.
