Woodbridge

Built in the 1990s, this small, hidden subdivision features moderately large custom homes on moderately large lots. You drive through an older neighborhood to get here, once in Woodbridge, San Marino opens up to the Putah Creek Parkway and a big, grassy neighborhood park. You will find it downright livable and pleasant, plus you are close to the freeway (heading to Sacramento for work?) and Pioneer School. And the honorary mayor or Woodbridge tells me there is no friendlier neighborhood.
