Cupertino is an affluent city in Santa Clara County that was incorporated in 1955. The area has a pleasantly temperate climate of warm, dry summers and cool, wet winters. In its early years, the area’s mild and sunny climate contributed to the production of its abundant fruit crops of cherries, apricots and plums, which were the anchors of its economy. Today, the city, which is a part of Silicon Valley, is primarily recognized for its contributions to the nation’s information technology (IT) sector. Apple, Seagate Technology, Chordiant and Trend Micro have their global headquarters in Cupertino, and IBM and Oracle also have a significant presence in the city.
Besides hosting office space for IT design, development and project management initiatives, Cupertino is also home to some of the state’s highest achieving students. The city’s primary and secondary schools are consistently ranked top in the state, and one of its high schools was recently named 23rd best in the nation. Cupertino’s school system, high quality of life and low crime rates have earned it recognition as one of America’s best small towns in which to live.
When Cupertino residents are not engaged in designing software for work or studying for aptitude tests for school, they take time to enjoy the natural bounty that the city affords. For instance, hiking, biking and fishing at Stevens Creek are popular ways for Cupertino residents to get fresh air and exercise. The city recently completed trails that are dedicated to bike and foot traffic only. Locals and visitors also learn about the area’s early contributions to California’s Wine Country at the historic Picchetti Brothers Winery. The ranch on which the winery sits contains homes and outbuildings that were constructed between the 19th and early 20th centuries, and the structures’ original designs have been preserved.

Cupertino is also known for its ultra-expensive real estate that is mostly held by Silicon Valley professionals and executives. Home prices for single family dwellings often start at the $1 million mark and steadily climb upwards. While Cupertino neighborhoods boast numerous home designs, the Mid-Century Modern Eichler style stands out among the crowd. The style that is famous for highlighting natural vistas with plenty of glass walls and open floorplans was the design of choice for many Cupertino homeowners in the 1960s.
Today, contemporary architecture enthusiasts who purchase Eichler homes must carefully choose entry doors that enhance their homes’ look and security. Iron doors that have clean angles and wide expanses of glass panes that allow light to flow through homes are good choices for contemporary home styles. Pinky’s Iron Doors has a large selection of iron entry doors that include modern designs from its Air Collection. The Air Collection of iron doors offer home owners hand-forged quality, strong angles and plenty of glass that bring outdoor beauty indoors. A Cupertino resident or visitor who sees their perfect iron entry door at Pinky’s expansive showroom can order it online and have it delivered to anywhere in the United States.
