Significance: Hanchett Residence Park is an early 20th century real estate development, characterized by modestly scaled residences designed in the Bungalow and Craftsman modes and variations of the Spanish-Colonial Revival style. In 1905, Lewis E. Hanchett, San Jose mining and street railway entrepreneur, bought the seventy-seven acre tract, which was surveyed and platted the next year. The wide gently curving and tree-lined streets were designed in 1907 by landscape architect John McLaren, best known for his design of San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. To prevent commercial development in the Park, strict guidelines concerning the value and placement of houses and the character of improvements were written into each deed title. Because subsequent owners have respected and maintained the plans of Hanchett and McLaren, the park's original appearance and character have been preserved.
