Initially developed in the 1970s, this neighborhood has evolved into a coveted destination for families and young professionals, particularly in the tech industry.

SENSE OF SECLUSION: The Great Hills neighborhood offers a unique sense of privacy, with cul-de-sacs and dead-end roads fanning off the main streets.

You are within a short distance of urban conveniences yet enjoy a feeling of seclusion and tranquility, far from the fast-paced city life.

SHOPPING MECCA: Great Hills is adjacent to The Arboretum, a renowned outdoor shopping center. Established in 1985, it boasts a park-like atmosphere with a fountain garden, open green spaces, and over 40 shops and restaurants, including popular names like Z Gallerie, Barnes & Noble, Sephora, Soma, and Nordstrom Rack.
