Ford Road Plaza

Property Description

This community is creatively arranged around a central courtyard filled with walking paths through landscaped islands, two playgrounds, picnic and barbeque areas. Previously this site was a fenced off, blighted lot that has now been transformed into a cluster of beautiful homes that add value to the community and where families can thrive.

Onsite amenities include a large community room with a full kitchen, a lounge area and a computer learning center. Ford Road Plaza is ideally located near a major shopping center plus a wealth of transportation choices: Blossom Hill Caltrain station, Santa Clara Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) bus stop, and the nearby VTA light rail Cottle Station. This superb location allows residents to live full, active lives without a car.
