All of this, naturally, comes at a cost. The homebuyer looking to upgrade from Shoreview, San Mateo Terrace or any other San Mateo’s entry-level neighborhoods may find the gulf between themselves and Aragon almost insurmountable. The good life does not come cheaply. It has some of the best floor plans for good-sized homes in San Mateo, and, despite its elevated home prices, offers excellent value for the dollar compared to its slightly pricier neighbor, Baywood, which is just a few minutes closer to downtown. (The neighborhood is west of El Camino, east of Alameda, and north of the 92 freeway.) Most recent Aragon sales have all landed north of $2 million, with neighborhood homes selling for between $2.1 and $2.9 million and a median of $2.45 million.
As a neighborhood with decades of cache, Aragon has attracted owners unafraid to put a personal stamp on their homes. Original Aragon construction was somewhat modest; the neighborhood’s imposing homes often had only two bedrooms. Over time, most Aragon real estate has been upgraded and expanded to where most now have at least three bedrooms and more than 2,000 square feet of living space.
Aragon takes its place not only among San Mateo’s finest neighborhoods but among those of the entire county. Whatever the state of the overall housing market, Aragon will always sit atop many homebuyers’ wish lists.
