Rex Manor’s residents rave about the neighborhood’s calm and quiet streets, which are thanks to the fact that none of the streets go through to another part of town, and the plenty of traffic circles help minimize speeding. Most homes throughout Rex Manor are modest, single-family Ranch-style built in the 1960s. A good number of the residents are the original homeowners, and have created a tight-knit community over the years they’ve spent in the neighborhood. Recently, a tide of new construction has taken place with builders buying older homes in poor condition and either demolishing them and building anew, or constructing extensive additions. The heart of the neighborhood is Stevenson Park with its vast lawn, ideal for sports like baseball, soccer, and football. This neighborhood is centrally located to schools, freeways, restaurants, shopping, and downtown Mountain View.
