Mount Carmel, Eagle Hill, Wellesley Park, Edgewood Park

Mount Carmel is full of charming 1920s bungalows, Spanish/Mediterraneans, Tudors, and English cottages, along with 1940s and 50s ranchers. It’s a great neighborhood for mid-level home buyers. Many of the original  homes have 2-3 bedrooms and are less than 2,000 sq. feet while newer homes in the area can be much larger with two stories and over 2,000 sq. feet of living space.

Wellesley Park is bounded by Finger Avenue/Edgewood Road, El Camino Real, Arlington Road, and Wellesley Circle. Wellesley Land and Improvement Company subdivided 153 lots in 1889, making it the city’s first residential development west of El Camino. Not all the original homes are still standing today, but you can still see the neighborhood’s rich history in the large, stately Victorians, Mediterraneans, and Arts and Crafts homes around Wellesley Crescent Park.  

Edgewood Park is home to Redwood City’s original ”Millionaire’s Row,” which boasts expansive lots and vintage estates, with prices starting in the millions. The small blocks that run between Edgewood Road and Arlington Road are home to smaller homes built in the 1950s and 60s, with 3-5 bedrooms, and on average more than 2,000 sq. feet.



History

High School Acres is named for Sequoia High School, the first high school in San Mateo County. The high school first opened downtown in 1895 in the building that is now the Fox Theater. In 1924, it landed at it’s current address at 1201 Brewster Avenue. The campus is rich with Spanish Architecture, a Japanese Tea Garden, and a Sequoia Grove.


High School Acres covers the area from Jefferson Avenue north to the San Carlos Border, and from El Camino Real west to Alameda de las Pulgas.
