Naglee Park: A Lifestyle Neighborhood

Naglee Park: A Historical Lifestyle Neighborhood (edit/delete)

Naglee Park San Jose CA is a lifestyle neighborhood in downtown San Jose located next to San Jose State University. The boundaries of the Naglee Park San Jose CA neighborhood are Santa Clara Street, 11th Street, Interstate 280, and Coyote Creek.

The area was developed on the estate of California pioneer Brigadier General Henry Morris Naglee and is considered the first modern subdivision in Santa Clara County. Naglee Park San Jose CA was the first subdivision to be developed and marketed in the way we currently think of a subdivision. Naglee Park was developed as a complete neighborhood with paved streets and all the modern utilities' we take for granted a hundred years later. In addition, all utilities were located at the back of the lots to hide the wires.

Naglee Park had restrictive covenants just like modern subdivisions but the concerns of a hundred years ago are different than today. You could not build a barn or a stable and your house had to cost at least $2000! The automobile was gaining in popularity as Naglee Park was being developed. Many of the residents of Naglee Park were prominent business owners and had to have the latest and greatest trends in housing such as having garages that matched their houses.

Naglee Park has many houses that have historic significance because of their ownership history and their architecture. Drive over to Naglee Park and park your car, walk around and admire all the architectural styles that are not found in the typical Silicon Valley subdivision. Also notice how friendly the neighbors are and imagine that this could be your next lifestyle neighborhood.

If you get hungry after your walk, stroll over to the Naglee Park Garage for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Naglee Park Garage has been featured on the Food Network Show "Diners, Drive-In's and Dives" staring Guy Fieri.

Please let me know if I can show you any of the homes currently available for sale in the Naglee Park neighborhood.
