Westwood Park Real Estate

When the Twin Peaks Tunnel opened in 1918, making public transportation between downtown San Francisco and the western reaches of the city quick and efficient, development of Twin Peaks West, as San Francisco's District 4 is called, began in earnest. Westwood Park was one of the first neighborhoods in the area to be built and was designed with the "family of average means" in mind. Today, Westwood Park is an affluent, family-friendly San Francisco community with a distinct suburban feel.

Like nearby Ingleside Terrace, Westwood Park is primarily a residential neighborhood centered around an oval, racetrack-style street layout.  Westwood Park's commercial section, which offers plenty of small shops and eateries, lies on its southern boundary along Ocean Avenue; and, for more extensive shopping, the Stonestown Galleria is less than 2 miles away. Several bus and light rail stations along Ocean Avenue and the nearby Balboa Park BART station make using public transportation simple. Westwood Park residents who prefer to provide their own transportation will find access to the freeway is easy and direct.

Shortly after it was built, The Home Designer magazine described Westwood Park was as "one of the show places of San Francisco and a model of the modern American home community". In modern times, Westwood Park remains a show place, has the distinction of being an officially legislated Residential Character District because of the unique nature of its architecture, which consists primarily bungalows built in many of the styles popular during the early 20th century, including Spanish Revival, Craftsman, and English Cottage.  Underground utilities keep the neighborhood uncluttered; and the charming cottages and bungalows with nicely landscaped yards give real estate in Westwood Park distinction.
