"Beautiful Older Homes Here"

Like Broadmoor and Sheffield Village, you will find quite a few attractive older homes here in Estudillo Estates. Architecture buffs should definitely take a little walk down Estudillo Avenue. There you will find a lot of older manors with half-timbering and all the rest of it. Many of the homes in this neighborhood and right here on this street are Jazz age constructions. These are the kind of homes that are just not built in this way anymore with high windows and mini rounded medieval style towers. It is really pretty amazing.

The median home price here is $450,000 with homes ranging from $300k to $600k for the most part.
As to the other factors in the neighborhood, such as schools, these are unfortunately average at best as San Leandro High School is. Crime is relatively low here, with most of it taking place a bit farther to the north or to the south.

There is a bit of nearby nightlife in Old San Leandro and in the southern portion of San Leandro where the mall is. You also have a number of hiking trails and that sort of thing to the east of here in the hills where Chabot Park and Lake Chabot is located.

Overall this is one of the nicest neighborhoods in San Leandro and this section overall is definitely the nicest section of San Leandro—especially if you include Bay-O-Vista in this mix.

I would recommend it even for those with kids, since the schools here, though not great are solid enough. You might also consider sending your kids to one of the local private schools, assuming that you can afford it—such as one of the local Catholic schools.
Pros
  • Beautiful Older Homes
  • Close to Lake Chabot
  • Okay Spot for Commuters
Cons
  • Okay, but not Great Schools
  • Somewhat Expensive
  • Some Nearby Crime

"The friendliness of the people remind me of back home"

I was born in India and I have been living in the California area for about nine years now with my parents. My first initial reaction when I moved to the Estudillo Estates and Glen neighborhood in San Leandro was shock. It was quite a radical change. The diversity of cuisine establishments in the area, the architecture of the houses, the way the people interacted with each other and the overall atmosphere was so much to take in. Now that I have been in the area for a few years now I have come to appreciate the quality of life and values in the Estudillo/Glen area. There is plenty to do in this area as far as leisure activities go. There are shopping centers, movie theaters and some nice stretches of wooded areas a little off to the East. Traffic isn't so bad compared to other areas because there isn't a major freeway that passes through the area. For the most part the people are really friendly and that aspect always reminds me of my home country of India.
