Gen Fox Farm Real Estate Statistics

General Fox Farm – GFOX

Area Overview

Surrounded by development, these mostly mid-sized homes have large enough yards with plenty of trees to still have a mountain forest atmosphere. The central location in the valley provides easy access to the largest shopping centers. Most of the yards are landscaped and residents keep yards clean and homes maintained.

  • Settled, clean neighborhood
  • Central in the valley and to shopping centers
  • Large yards, mostly landscaped
  • A bit away from the forest, but still a bit woodsy
  • Suburban benefits, mountain feel

Natural Surroundings

Surrounded by development, the primary natural surroundings are supplied by nice-sized yards with a variety of trees, including many native Jeffrey pines. Small wildlife and birds always find their way into wooded yards to add to the forest atmosphere. The very eastern edge, with larger estates, borders National Forest with its terrain and habitats that bring more wildlife into the area.
