Bordered by the California Golf Club and Westborough Blvd to the North, and the Brentwood neighborhood to the South, the Avalon (and Southwood) neighborhoods take a lot of its character from the golf course and club. Homes in this area are a mixed bag of styles and sizes, having been built over the years from as early as 1942 to mini-mansions built in the party-year of 1999! Most homes were built in the post-war years to accommodate South San Francisco’s burgeoning workforce.
About the neighborhood
With street names like Country Club Dr. and Fairway Dr. you know you’re in the area. While not a modern golf community, with homes interwoven with every fairway, there are a few homes bordering the course if you’re looking for wide open views. Further up the hill to the West there are homes along the border of the neighborhood, Hwy 280, which for some has the sound of rushing water instead of cracking golf shots. El Camino Real provides the Eastern border, and Alta Vista Dr. is the southernmost street before the Brentwood neighborhood.
