In 1916, Westwood Park was the promise of a new way of life. The area became popular after the Twin Peaks Tunnel was completed, offering convenience to downtown and giving a respite to urban life. The dream is still true today, offering access to both downtown and the Peninsula, as well as convenient commercial offerings.


Part of this vibrant fabric is 745 Faxon; a detached, well-loved bungalow style home, built in 1922, enhanced by its architect owners over the last 27 years.

Westwood Park is charming little enclave, dotted with craftsmen-style bungalows constructed mostly in the early 1920s. Residents take great pride in their homes, which are very well-maintained; and an active neighborhood association works to maintain the historic nature of the neighborhood. Development of Westwood Park's 650 or so homes kicked off in 1917, in conjunction with the opening of the Twin Peaks Tunnel that connected the so-called "two cities" of downtown San Francisco and the vast tracts of land West of Twin Peaks. The layout of the neighborhood is very distinctive and easily spotted on a map. Unlike nearby Ingleside Terrace, which was literally built around a former horse track, the two main oval streets that mark Westwood Park were designed to keep residents from getting lost on winding roads. Today's residents enjoy their proximity to Ocean Avenue's commercial strip, which offers all of the everyday conveniences. A Muni streetcar runs right down Ocean Avenue as well, for access to downtown or south to the Balboa Park BART station. The neighborhood is adjacent to both San Francisco City College and the state-of-the-art Ingleside Branch of the San Francisco Library. For such a relatively small neighborhood, there is also a very active parent's group, making this a great area for families with kids.
