This charming neighborhood with unique homes was named for the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden located across 5 ½ acres with over 3,500 rose bushes. As one of San Jose’s oldest neighborhoods, many historic mansions and estates are still present, giving the wide, tree lined streets an eclectic mix of architecture. The area is home to several good schools, both public and private, and is close to Santa Clara University to the north and Downtown San Jose to the south. The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum is always makes for a fascinating visit, and with the SAP Center just minutes away, you’ll never be lacking in entertainment. Additionally, with freeway access and the Diridon Train Station in close proximity, your daily commute just got less stressful.
