Brookside & Willowbrook

The Brookside/Willowbrook area of Portola Valley typifies small town charm and community. Many of the homes maintain their original structures although newer construction is present. The generally smaller lots not only make the area more accessible for first time home buyers in the area but also contribute to the close knit community feel replete with block parties and neighborhood social activities.

Brookside/Willowbrook is considered by some to be more centrally located than its aptly named counterpart as it sits in close proximity to the public middle school Corte Madera, the private boarding school Woodside Priory as well as the elementary school Ormondale. And in some parts is walking distance to the Triangle Park and Shopping Center.

Residents of Brookside/Willowbrook also enjoy the Windy Hill Open Space Preserve that lies just beyond the neighborhood limits. Hikers and equestrians have access to more than 12 miles of trails on the preserve’s 1,335 acres that feature a variety of habitats and topographies.
