Welcome to White Oaks!
Though it’s called “White Oaks”, this neighborhood is actually comprised of two subdivisions, Oak Park and White Oaks. The former inhabits the north while the latter resides in the south of the area. Originally, it was called El Sereno Corte, but today its residents affectionately refer to their home as just White Oaks. Unlike the adjacent Howard Park, White Oaks is almost completely flat. With scenic tree-lined streets, close proximity to the picturesque downtown of San Carlo, and exceptionally friendly people, White Oaks is a great place for those seeking a warm community environment.
Brittan Avenue, Alameda De Las Pulgas, El Camino, and the creek that separates San Carlos from Redwood City border the area. Many of the homes here originate from the 1920s and 1950s. Architectural styles vary from English, Mediterranean, and early ranchers with newer models sprinkled in amongst them. Many of the older homes have undergone renovations and expansions as well. Downtown San Carlos is a vision of local shops and great restaurants where the locals always have a smile and a friendly “hello” at the ready. Residents of White Oaks celebrate being a short walk from downtown and the unique shops of Laurel Avenue.
In terms of schools, Brittan Acres Elementary serves students in the north while those in the south attend White Oaks Elementary. The latter school is one of the most well regarded public schools in the state. Upon leaving elementary school, students move on to Center Middle and later, Sequoia High.
