Our home

Our home is a medium sized house attached to the house next door. It is one level with hard wood floors, a modern kitchen, two large bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom, and a "music room" near the front door. There we have a piano and an antique pump organ. We have a small dining area in the kitchen and a formal dining room, also. The laundry room is near the kitchen. The ceilings are vaulted in the living areas, 20 feet high, so the rooms seem very large. We have several TV's, all connected to cable, and two small stereos. Our back deck overlooks a ravine of oak trees, redwood trees, and a hiking path that connects to a bay area system of hiking paths.

Who we are

  1. My husband is a high school history teacher, and I am a high school guidance counselor. We have lived here in The Villages for two years, and love it. Unfortunately, my husband had a bad fall, and needs to use a walker to get around, so we hope for a house with few stairs to manoeuvre. We have many friends in France and Switzerland and Germany; we used to host foreign exchange students aplenty, and keep up with most of them. This will be our first trip back to Europe after my husband's fall.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

We live in a gated retirement community in the east hills of San Jose, fifty miles from San Francisco to the north, and from Carmel and Santa Barbara to the south. It is like living in a park with deer, rabbits, wild turkeys and song birds everywhere. We live on an excellent golf course. There are four swimming pools to choose from and tennis courts. You can dine at the Club House, and are minutes from excellent dining in downtown San Jose. Our neighbors are very friendly; the people next door are from Finland, and the lady across the street is from Germany. We moved here two years ago, and love it! Summers are usually very warm during the day. At night the temperature drops.
