Located North of Los Gatos and the Almaden Valley, and South of the Campbell and Willow Glen communities, the Cambrian area of San Jose is home to many middle-class families that value excellent schools and a decent sized suburban home.  It is a small enclave of single-family homes, a few condos & townhomes, and a small mix of retail. There is no downtown core or urban center, but because of the proximity to Willow Glen, Campbell, and Los Gatos, residents can enjoy the nightlife when they want and live in a serene neighborhood environment.

What sets Cambrian apart from other communities in San Jose are the elementary schools.  The Cambrian School District serves approximately 3200 students in grades K-8, and all five of the district's schools have been recognized as California Distinguished Schools.  The district is working on bringing technology into the classrooms and has received numerous grants for their curriculum development work.  The area is also served by the Campbell Union High School District, with Branham High and Leigh High the local options based on residency.  A portion of the Cambrian area to the East is served by the San Jose Unified School District.

The Cambrian area is ideally located for commuters who want multiple options for heading North by car to local job centers.  The area straddles Highway 85 with multiple access points and offers relatively quick access to Highway 87 and Highway 17. The area is not ideal for public transit access, as a drive to a local station is required in order to access the system. Public amenities in the area include a newly built public library, and numerous City maintained parks. The local Cambrian Park Plaza was purchased by a developer in 2014, and given the location at the heart of the Cambrian neighborhood, will likely be rebuilt into a new retail and restaurant center for the community.

The Cambrian area of San Jose shares the 95124 zip code with Willow Glen, and also includes the 95118 zip code. The real estate community uses MLS area 14 to designate Cambrian and below is the historical market data for the region.
