Come home to your respite from the Silicon Valley hustle and bustle! 6235 Tillamook Drive is tucked away in the desirable Sakamoto neighborhood beneath the Santa Teresa Foothills.  Leave your car at home with ample opportunities for hiking, biking, or just enjoying the views from your back yard. 

Updated in 2011 with an eye for detail, the centerpiece to the home is the stunning aggregate granite counter island with Italian glass pendant lighting.  A kitchen skylight with Velux remote retractable shade ensures there is ample natural lighting. Aspiring chefs will delight in the gas range and double electric ovens. Custom cabinets contain the latest features including pullouts in the pantry and many of the cabinets.

The backyard is a playful combination of lavender, hibiscus, succulents, citrus, grape vines and fig. There are 8 beautiful rose bushes in a rainbow of colors that you’ll enjoy on the bush, or freshly cut and on display on your dining table.  Butterfly friendly landscaping adds to the peaceful environment. Ample paver patio spaces provide both lounging and eating areas, and an area for relaxing around a fire pit with s’mores and wine in your favorite chair.  You may spend more time out of doors than in!

For the times you find yourself inside, settle into the family room with wood burning fireplace and relax fireside. With a click of a switch this family room converts into a home theater for an amazing big screen experience. The living area exhibits wonderful proportion and flexibility in an open concept design. The master bath shower is a sanctuary with three heads including a hand shower and overhead rain shower. Dual sinks, an electric towel heater and Toto Washlet toilet seat ensure you will feel pampered every day.

The home generates an abundance of electricity through its 24-panel Sunpower solar system. During the remodel household systems were updated to include efficient furnace and AC, tankless water heating, new electrical panel, and upgraded recessed LED lighting. The windows are energy efficient double pane Milgard with Low-E glass. An electric vehicle charging point is in the garage.

Located conveniently near dining, shopping and entertainment at Westfield Oakridge with Century 20 and XD movie theater. Also nearby are Costco, Trader Joe’s, Barnes and Noble and Whole Foods.  Nob Hill Foods, Starbucks and Peet’s are about as close as they can be at the Santa Teresa Square Shopping Center.

Sought after Oak Grove District schools, with Sakamoto Elementary (K-6), Herman Intermediate (7-8), and Santa Teresa High (9-12).  Herman Intermediate earned California Distinguished School recognition in 2018.


The Santa Teresa Foothills is where tech goes to chill. Escape the Silicon Valley bustle and enjoy a cold one at one of the city’s newer breweries, Santa Clara Valley Brewing Company, Strike Brewing Company, and Hermitage Brewing – or try all of them on a self-guided brew trail. This relaxed neighborhood is also a dream come true for the outdoor/nature enthusiast. Mountain bikers, hikers and birders have trail upon trail to explore. Among the natural highlights of this part of San Jose are Hellyer County Park and Santa Teresa County Park.
