Redwood Heights, Worth a Second Look!

Students, parents, neighbors and artists pitch in to create this gorgeous mosaic at Redwood Heights Elementary School.

Wow, this week my son Miles is graduating from Redwood Heights Elementary School! Ten years ago, when my husband and I purchased our home in this neighborhood, I was so excited that my children would be attending my former school. I have been a Redwood Heights parent for the last nine years, kindergarten - 5th grade for both my daughter, Nia and son, Miles. I love my neighborhood, very down to earth, yet full of life.  Recently Redwood Heights home prices took a slight dip in price, making this a great time to consider a move to this neighborhood.

This charming neighborhood, with a neighborhood association established in 1944, is the perfect place to purchase a home. From storybook Tudors to mid-century ranch homes and prices currently ranging between $550,000 - $750,000, this neighborhood is full of value. Redwood Heights residences like myself appreciate this satisfying community with Redwood Heights Elementary School and Recreation Center at the heart. I really enjoy the social nature of the neighborhood -  it is common that folks wave to me as I am driving or walking during my daily chores.

Above you will see the newest addition to Redwood Heights Elementary, our retaining walls are now studded with a handcrafted mosaic mural the vision of neighbors and artists, Claudia Goodman - Hough and Pam Consear.

This summer enjoy the outdoors as the recreation center with “Movies in the Park” at dusk on select Fridays.  Grab a sweater and a lawn chair and head over to 3883 Aliso Ave.
