Clearfield Park

Clearfield Park has some of the most affordable homes in San Carlos

It’s also adjacent to San Carlos’ only industrial district, an area important to the city’s history. South of Hall Street, the neighborhood turns from residential to industrial. The Murphy tract’s location was once very convenient for workers at electronics companies like Ampex, Varian, Eimac and Litton Engineering Industries. San Carlos Airport is also near Clearfrield Park, just across Highway 101.

Though the Murphy tract dominates Clearfield Park, there are pockets of newer and older homes in the neighborhood. Bayport Court, a two-block street next to Laureola Park, is built atop the former site of Laureola Elementary School (which, itself, was built on the former site of Timothy Guy Phelps’ carriage house. Phelps’ mansion was at Holly Avenue and Old Country Road). The small subdivision was built in 1987 and is comprised of 1,500 square-foot, two-story homes.

The rest of Clearfield Park real estate is – uniquely – made of cinderblocks, though many homes’ exteriors have been stuccoed over. Legend is that Murphy used cinderblocks originally slated for wartime bunker-building.
