"Little Box Homes Close to the City"

At the risk of being a master of the obvious, Westpark Townhouses and Condominiums is pretty good spot for renters. This neighborhood is largely made up of condominiums. These are squarish looking houses with driveways close to the street and garages that take up the majority of the face of the homes. Narrow walkways lead back to the front doors and most homes have metal gates—I assume due to crime worries.

Homes tend to be two stories with the bedroom looking out onto the street over the top of the garage. The effect is very apartment-like. They are on the smallish side, rarely being larger than 2000 sq. ft. The average condominium in this neighborhood rents for between $1200 and $1400 roughly, which is actually not too bad for the Bay Area. (A 3-bedroom however will run you closer to $2500.)

There is an even bigger market for those looking to buy a condominium or a townhouse. 85% of the homes for sale here, are on sale due to foreclosure. For those homes listed as condominiums, prices seem to range from $250K to $350K. For those homes listed as single family homes, their median price is $450K with prices ranging from roughly $400K to $600 K.

The streets here are largely on gentle slopes. One of the things that I really like about this neighborhood is that in between the homes there are green spaces with play areas for kids. These areas cut in between the homes like alleyways but they are completely off limits to cars. They have walkways and are mostly grass and they usually will have the play area right in the center, well away from traffic. This is great for both families with kids and for adults to be able to go for an evening walk or for taking the dog out for some exercise.

The schools are pretty strong and it doesn’t have much of a nightlife scene, so it is a pretty good place to raise a small family—say if you are just starting out or only plan to have one kid on a limited budget. We actually strongly considered a place here, but decided against it ultimately.
Pros
  • Affordable Rents and Homes
  • Good Schools
  • Lots of Green Spaces
Cons
  • Small Homes
  • Some Crime Worries
  • Lots of Foreclosures

"Relatively new, tightly packed community"

West Park Townhouses and Condominiums is a recently developed, family-friendly neighborhood situated along the San rancisco peninsula. It is a flat community bounded by Highway 280 to the east, Westborough Boulevard to the south, Skyline Boulevard to the west and King Drive to the north. The district provides attractive suburban aesthetics with neat community landscaping and recently refurbished homes. In fact, its best suited for middle-class families who don’t care much for yards, or their own outdoor space.

Although its densely populated, West Park Townhouses and Condominiums is a very safe neighborhood. It’s somewhat reclusive with numerous col-de-sacs, making for quiet, rarely visited streets. These quaint, orderly streets lay ground to several blocks of skinny townhouses with modern-looking architecture. Most homes are designed the same: attached two-car garages situated on the bottom floor while the core living space sits on the second floor. From the front view, residences are so tightly packed together, they share side walls and front yards. Newer, more attractive homes are located along Greendale Drive, which arcs around the neighborhood.

For your errands, Westborough Square Shopping Center anchors the eastern end of the neighborhood. The area boasts your typical neighborhood shopping options (Walgreens, a couple chain stores/restaurants and a hardware store). Meanwhile, the Serramonte Shopping Mall is about a 5-10 minute drive up Highway 280. This area is more department store heavy and probably has every household product you could ever need. Elsewhere, Westborough Middle School is the only school within the neighborhood’s limits and is located along the southern edge of the community.
