Glenpark area of Cambrian in the Lone Hill neighborhood

Glenpark subdivision in CambrianJust east of Leigh High School, in the Lone Hill neighborhood of the Cambrian district of San Jose you’ll find an exceptionally attractive area of ranch style houses in the Glenpark subdivision. Often visitors there for the first time respond appreciatively to what they see: the proximity of the hills, the nicely maintained homes and yards, and the feeling that it just seems less crowded than most places. (To learn about the nearby Lone Hill Highlands neighborhood, which is just the other side of Harwood Road, click here.)

Part of the magic is the missing power lines to each house. This is one of the few neighborhoods with older homes but underground utilities – and what a big difference it makes!  (The south end of the subdivision is adjacent to the Harwood Estates subdivison, which does have some above ground utilities and has the high voltage lines running behind the houses on Chevalier Drive.)
