95051 - Santa Clara’s Southwest Zone
In partnership with American Dream TV, Vinicius Brasil, the Santa Clara Real Estate guy, takes us on a tour of 95051, Santa Clara's Southwest zone.
Santa Clara is known as the center of silicon valley, its the home to Intel the world's largest chip maker, the 5 times Superbowl Champions the San Francisco 49ers, Mission Santa Clara which was founded back in 1776, and the University of Santa Clara, the oldest institution for higher learning on the west coast.
But if you ask any Santa Claran what the greatest thing is to ever come out of Santa Clara, chances are they will probably say Stans Donuts.
Stans Donuts originally opened its doors in 1959 right about when Santa Clara was changing from a small agricultural town to the city of innovation and technology it is today. Stans is a Santa Clara cult classic and has been serving Santa Clara's finest donuts for decades. A wonderful family-run business that many Santa Clarans believe makes it the best donuts in the world. If you are in Santa Clara, you have to stop by Stans. From Stans, we head over to Santa Clara's Central Park.
Stop #1 - Central Park
This large park is situated in the center of the city and hosts many of the major community functions in Santa Clara. This park is located about a block away from Stans Donuts. This 52 Acre park is literally in the center of the city, and it is considered to be the heart of Santa Clara.
The park features picnic areas, a pavilion, duck pond, lighted tennis and basketball courts, the international swim center, two playgrounds, and fields for every sport. The park is adjacent to the City's main library and the community center.
This park hosts several events each year such as Santa Clara’s 4th of July celebration, the Annual Easter Egg Hunt, the Santa Clara Art and Wine Festival, and the end of the year Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
Central Park is such a big part of Santa Clara life, whether it was swimming at the pool in the summer, visiting the library, or just picnicking with family, there are so many great times had in this park. From Central Park, we head over to Westwood Oaks, one of Santa Clara’s top neighborhoods.
Stop #2 - Westwood Oaks
The Westwood Oaks neighborhood was originally developed in the late 1950s by Builder David Bohannon.
The Westwood Oaks development won several awards for its forward-thinking designs of open kitchens and spacious living rooms which were some of the first homes to feature large sliding patio doors that overlook the backyard. Fast forward 60 years and Westwood Oaks continues to be a sought-after neighborhood for many Santa Clara home buyers.
The development features 3 and 4-bedroom single-level ranch-style single-family homes with several different floorplans and elevations. t's a quiet neighborhood, with lot sizes around 6000 sq. ft. Westwood oaks feature two neighborhood parks, is next to Kona Kai Swim and Racquet Club and is just a short walk from Apple Computers' new headquarters.
As you can see, the southwest zone of Santa Clara has a lot going on. This area of Santa Clara has a lot to offer, from enjoying a tasty Stans donut to strolling around Central Park or admiring the beautiful homes in Westwood Oaks.
Next time on American Dream TV, we'll take a tour of Santa Clara's southeast zone, 95050, which includes Santa Clara's Old Quad and one of Jack London's favorite hangouts.
