Willow Glen Homes For Sale
Willow Glen real estate is visibly rich with history and character. This quaint, upper-middle class neighborhood is largely residential with pedestrian-friendly downtown and beautiful tree-lined streets. Willow Glen got its name because of the giant willows and wild blackberries that formerly engulfed the region. Once cleared, it exposed the richest soil in Santa Clara valley, producing the finest fruits, berries and vegetables. Now, it is one of San Jose’s most popular established neighborhoods.
Located south and slightly west of downtown San Jose, historical Willow Glen is bounded by the Guadalupe River, Los Gatos Creek, and Coe and Curtner Avenues. “Downtown Willow Glen” is on Lincoln Avenue where you will find quality shopping and upscale dining. Quaint and handsome, Willow Glen real estate includes many homes custom-built in the 1930s and retain their old world characteristics. It has been said that Willow Glen homes for sale are some of the finest in San Jose. Residents of Willow Glen have a distinct Christmas tree decorating tradition, often called the “Charlie Brown Trees.” Christmas trees line the front yards of many residents and elaborate light displays bring people from all over to enjoy the unique holiday tradition.
Very community oriented, Willow Glen has parks that offer basketball, handball, tennis, soccer, volleyball courts, exercise courses, athletic fields and picnic areas. Los Gatos Creek has recently been renovated by the Willow Glen Neighborhood Association and now provides a lovely trail for biking, running or walking. Residents are just a short drive from downtown San Jose and can also access the city via Highways 17 and 280.
