HOMES IN ONE OF SAN FRANCISCO PENINSULA'S MOST CHARMING NEIGHBORHOOD

C'mon, let us take a little walk today, shall we? I've picked out a most charming neighborhood with tree lined sidewalks and wide boulevards.


A bit of history as we stroll along....

San Mateo's Aragon is one of the classic neighborhoods of the San Francisco Peninsula. Built mostly between 1929 and 1939, this unique community was planned with wide boulevards, nostalgic lamp posts, and towering trees that shade the sidewalks.










European-inspired designs grace the streets with a profusion of English Tudors, Spanish Revivals, and East Coast Colonials. The gabled rooflines, grand picture windows, and romantic porches express a singular personality in each handcrafted home.

Keep you eyes keen so you don't miss the amazing details!









Utility lines are installed discreetly along the rear of the properties, so as not to disturb the leafy feeling of the streetscape. Aragon homes were designed so superbly in the 1930s that much of the original architectural integrity remains today. Aragon residents passionate for their neighborhood often stay in the same home for decades.










So glad you could join me for the part 1. Hope you can meet me back here tomorrow for the rest of the tour!

Hope you have a lovely evening!

Oh how I LOVED this tour. I adore San Francisco, but have never toured a street like this one. What glorious homes. Loved that fence with the greens on it. Simply stunning.

Have a wonderful weekend.
