"Nice Hilly Family Neighborhood"

Eagle Hill is sort of an extension of the Jefferson neighborhood. It is a very family friendly neighborhood with really good schools and nice sidewalks. It basically shares the same schools as Roosevelt so whether you decide to send your kids to the really good public schools—Gill Elementary, Kennedy Middle School or Sequoia High—or to one of the many private schools, you can’t really go wrong here.

One of the main differences, however is that this area is a little hillier and that the houses are just generally nicer kept than in Roosevelt. There are some pretty good views of the SF Bay from here.

So what does it cost to live here?

Homes here run around $700K or so. One or two might approach or even break the $1 million mark, and you might be able to find a few foreclosures for under $500 K (like in Roosevelt, more than half of homes in this neighborhood are on the market due to foreclosures).

Overall, this is definitely a good neighborhood in which to raise a family.

"The typical elementary school zone community"

Eagle Hill is a polished middle-class neighborhood pocketed within midst of Redwood City. The district is well-connected to its surrounding parts with US Route 101 and 84 within close proximity while Downtown Redwood City is just within walking distance. It is exclusively residential and spans about 0.7 square miles of suburban terrain. Demographically speaking, the district is comprised of about 4,000 residents, much of which are of white descent (over 75%), while the rest are mixed between hispanic and asian.

Besides the lush green and bushy aesthetics, Eagle Hill isn’t too exciting. Homes are mostly one-story in size, and are of the garden-variety. They do, however, sit on relatively large properties in comparison with charming house fronts and grassy front yards. There are a couple larger homes clustered towards Sequoia Hospital, but just a little. In any event, homes range from $800,000 to $1 million. Moreover, median household incomes are around $92,000/year. If you’re driving through the neighborhood, you’ll notice how very quaint and comfortable it is. Some roads have nice, orderly sidewalks while others have tree-lined streets nestled within the safe elementary school zone.

For young families, John Gill Elementary School lies within the neighborhood’s quarters. The school has garnered a 4 out-of-5 community rating on greatschools.org. Elsewhere, the Sequoia Union High School District is located two blocks east of Hudson Street, while Redwood City Caltrain is just beyond that. For the outdoorsy type, Redwood Morton Community Park is situated along Madison Avenue. The community grassland offers a playground, picnic tables, tennis courts and a baseball/soccer field.
