SAN LUIS DRIVE – One of SLO’s most coveted neighborhoods just moments to downtown San Luis Obispo. The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from its setting, its homes, and its flavor, can make all the difference. Many of the residences in the Upper Monterey / Woodland Drive neighborhood are established but not old, having been built between 1970 and 1999. A number of residences were also built between 1940 and 1969.
