where to look in San Carlos

homecontemporaryThe neighborhoods of San Carlos are virtually a textbook example of traditional middle-class architecture, from the ’20s through the ’70s. For many, that’s their great appeal. The enthusiast can still find MCM, especially in the hills, but it tends to be randomly interspersed, and much of what looks interesting from the outside is thoroughly conventional inside.  There are just three consistently MCM neighborhoods:  a 1952 development along Maple and De Anza, some slightly more upscale homes on Buckland built in 1956, and the thirty-two units of The 400 Association, loft-style condos built in 1961, on Portofino Drive.
