Burlingame - Burlingame Park
“The Burlingame Park neighborhood is small and lush.”
The Burlingame Park neighborhood is small and lush, bordered on one side by Hillsborough and walking distance to Burlingame Avenue, which is a huge draw for the neighborhood. The several hundred homes in the whole neighborhood are on generally larger lots here than most of Burlingame. Washington Elementary School on Howard Avenue serves Burlingame Park, which is just across El Camino. The neighborhood is highly desirable, and coupled with typically extremely low inventory, very few homes come up for sale here — less than a dozen homes sold in all of 2010 in Burlingame Park. The median price range is $1.6m – $1.85m, though larger homes easily sell over $2m.

Burlingame Park is “Old Burlingame.” Its tree-lined streets and gracious homes date from the time of the city’s incorporation and before. In 1893, the Burlingame Country Club formed around 5 English Tudor style “cottages” built for vacationers’ use in 1892. Two of those homes still stand in their original location just north of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. The street names here reveal some of the area’s history: Francis Newlands is the man credited with forming the Burlingame Country Club. William Sharon was Newlands’ father-in-law. Together with William Ralston, Sharon built San Francisco’s Palace Hotel. The hotel maintained a dairy farm west of El Camino Real across from the present day Safeway store on Howard Avenue. You can walk this neighborhood and imagine the polo ponies and fox hunting hounds that were once housed here. The entire neighborhood is within easy walking distance to the shops and restaurants on Burlingame Avenue.
