Ardenwood Schools

Ardenwood is served by the Fremont Unified School District, home to a number of excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include:


Fremont, the fourth most populous city in the Bay Area, has deep history and is often voted one of the happiest big cities in America.


When Anthony Marinelli arrived to the area to sell Fremont real estate 33 years ago it was still a town more than a City. 33 years before that, it was a collection of five individual townships that incorporated to form the City of Fremont; coincidentally, also the same year Anthony was born. Now recognized as districts; Centerville, Niles, Irvington, Warm Springs, and Mission San Jose represent the unique characteristics of Fremont. In that same vein, the Marinelli Real Estate team has grown with Fremont – Anthony as the city has transformed, Nicole growing up in Niles and Chuck being born and raised in Glenmoor.


Ardenwood real estate is bordered by the Patterson Ranch, a popular day trip for Bay Area residents. For perspective, in 1878, George Patterson bought a schooner for $3,950 to ship his produce by water to San Francisco, and was able to get $1 per head for his cabbage crop (remember, that’s a lot during the Gold Rush!). Bought today, his Schooner would cost tens of millions. With this example, it's easy to see how Patterson was able to acquire thousands of acres of land. The Eucalyptus that borders the park were planted by seed and still standing today. It's a historic farm that has a train ride that kids just love. Once in the main area you can see chickens, cows, pigs, rabbits, sheep, goats, horses, and even peacocks can be heard screeching from time to time. They have folks that will take kids on a tour and give them corn to feed the animals. Anthony Marinelli of The Marinelli Real Estate Team has the distinction of having sold more Ardenwood homes than any other Realtor. More importantly, he has taken his Grand-daughter, Willa, to Ardenwood Historic Farm - just as he did his partner and daughter, Nicole Herrmann, 30 years prior.
