About

Central Los Altos, Ranchos, Loyola Corners, and South Los Altos are the four districts that make up the South of El Monte neighborhood. Though distinctly different, each district boasts desirable characteristics, and all convey a sense of community, security, and stability.

Comprised of two connecting triangles is Central Los Altos, defined by its wide and curb-less streets, which are flanked with tall, proud trees, and meticulously kept lawns. Out of the four districts, Central Los Altos has seen the most change, with many of the original Ranch homes having undergone major renovations, or torn down altogether, and replaced by newer homes.

Sandwiched between the two connecting triangles of Central Los Altos are the Rancho and Loyola Corners neighborhoods. Located roughly between Covington Road and Foothill Expressway, the Rancho district and the Rancho Shopping Center developed simultaneously, allowing residents to easily access all of the amenities and fun of a mini-downtown area, without the hustle and bustle. As with the Central Los Altos district, the homes in Rancho are generally single-story Ranch homes on quarter-acre lots. However, unlike Central Los Altos, these homes tend to undergo mostly interior improvements as opposed to full-scale remodels.

Between Miramonte Avenue and Foothill Expressway sits the Loyola Corners district, one of the oldest parts of the city. In the early days of Los Altos, railroad tracks ran south from San Francisco on what is now Foothill Expressway, with a train station at Loyola Corners, allowing San Franciscans easy access to escape the summer fog. Modern-day Loyola Corners still maintains a rustic feel, bolstered by many “mom and pop” shops and local businesses that retain the old, country character of the community’s rich history.

What was once orchards and empty lots has become a neighborhood filled with young couples and children. Most of the homes in the South Los Altos district are mid-century Ranch homes, while a fair smattering of Eichlers, two-story Mediterraneans, and Craftsmans can be seen as well. Residents of this district are very family-oriented and regularly host gatherings and annual summer concerts at Grant Park.  The park also has a community center, which often hosts after-school programs. Residents of South Los Altos are the only Los Altos residents who are divided into two school districts: Los Altos School District and Cupertino Union School Districts.
