San Mateo Park...Timeless Prestige of "The Park"
Quite simply, San Mateo Park is a neighborhood like no other. Planned in the 1890s by famous landscape architect John McClaren (Golden Gate Park fame), the streetscape revolves around iconic oval islands planted with rare trees and specimen foliage. Tucked between Hillsborough and Burlingame, this charismatic neighborhood offers grand homes on larger parcels of typically 8,000 - 15,000 sq. ft., with many half-acre properties also on display. The architecture is magnificent at every turn, and the convenience is second to none: downtown Burlingame and downtown San Mateo are “just around the corner" and within walking distance. Residents appreciate the feeling of a quiet neighborhood “forgotten by time.” That’s not to say there is not a supply of high-end remodeling and modern luxury on hand. Recent new constructions have eclipsed $8,000,000, and the average price per sq. ft. for 2018 was $1,205 for the 30 sales reported to MLS, and the average lot size was 11,658 sq. ft. Known affectionately by locals simply as "The Park," San Mateo Park is truly one of the most treasured and celebrated neighborhoods on the entire Peninsula.
