"Central but residential"

Kenwood Drive, tucked away right behind Safeway, is a very nice, cute, residential street that is perfect for families. The loop-like structure makes it great for walking or short bike rides, and although the houses are close together, they are quite spacious for such a neighborhood.

Proximity to Safeway is a plus, but proximity to downtown is even nicer. For the rare young professional who can afford to live here, the bars are a hop, skip, and a jump away, and families or parents can walk to run their errands (and not having to drive on El Camino is a huge plus).

Square foot by square foot, the location makes the area very expensive. I could also understand some parents being concerned about the fact that the nearby road is home to some fairly heavy traffic.

  • Safe, residential neighborhood
  • Great schools
