Easton Addition

One of the most desirable neighborhoods in all of Burlingame.

Burlingame’s Easton Addition is arguably the city’s signature neighborhood. Located within walking distance of Broadway’s low-key shops and restaurants and an easy drive to Burlingame Avenue, Easton Addition balances access to urban amenities and easy auto and CalTrain commutes with the serene seclusion of a long-established residential neighborhood. It’s streets are lined mature trees and a mixture of vintage -- turn-of-the-century bungalows, stately Victorians, Arts & Crafts-style cottages -- and contemporary homes, usually with at least three bedrooms and often as much as five. The picturesque neighborhood is near multiple parks and medical service providers and even boasts its own, elegant, Mission-style branch of the venerable Burlingame Public Library. A gem in the heart of a residential neighborhood which is particularly popular among all the young families in the area. Pop on in and make yourself at home next to the fireplace in one of several mind-blowing Craftsman leather reading chairs!

Easton Addition accounted for 25% of all Burlingame home sales in 2022 (30% in 2021) while posting the city’s second-highest average and median home values ($3.51 and $3.4 million, notably up 6% from 2021). As Burlingame goes, though, so goes Easton Addition, and the city’s overall drop in real estate activity was reflected in its most popular neighborhood where overall sales fell 35% after increasing by 18% in 2021. That Easton Addition real estate actually gained value while most other neighborhoods lost value is a tribute to its enduring desirability, as is the fact that during a down year $5 million-plus homes increased their neighborhood market share from 1.5% to 9%. Since 2018, property values in Easton Addition have increased by 25%.

Schools & History


Families living in Easton Addition have access to a pair of excellent public elementary schools: Roosevelt Elementary on Vancouver at Broadway, and Lincoln Elementary on Ray Drive (bordering Ray Park) at Balboa, plus the private Catholic K-8 school, Our Lady of Angels.

Burlingame’s single public middle school, Burlingame Intermediate School, is located just outside of Easton Addition, in the Ray Park neighborhood. Students then go onto Burlingame High School, which has a long history of being recognized as one of the state’s strongest public high schools, or a number of independent and parochial secondary schools.


Ansel I. and Adeline Easton’s Black Hawk horse ranch once covered 1,500 acres. The Easton estate, and the 1,500-acre estate of Mrs. Easton’s brother D.O. Mills, occupied all of what is now Burlingame north of Sanchez Creek. The Easton estate extended from Sanchez Creek north to Mills Creek (near present day Adeline Drive) and the Mills estate extended from Mills Creek to El Portal Creek (near present day Mills Avenue).

Today, The Easton Addition takes it name from the Eastons’ son Ansel Mills Easton who subdivided his parents’ ranch and developed the area west of El Camino Real in the decades before and after World War I. The area is referred to as the Easton “Addition” because it was not originally included in the city’s borders when Burlingame incorporated in 1908. We are not sure why Easton didn’t join Burlingame originally at the time of incorporation, but probably because most of the wealthy landowners were worried that they’d be taxed (Mills didn’t join and Hillsborough didn’t join either). The last remaining 25 acres of Black Hawk Ranch were sold to Charles Howard, the owner of the great racehorse Seabiscuit, in 1925.

Ansel Easton Adams, the famous photographer, is named after Ansel M. Easton; the famous photographer’s parents admired Mr. Easton, who was married to Louise Adams Easton, the photographer’s aunt. Ansel Adams (the photographer) was named after his uncle because at one time his father greatly admired his brother-in-law, but the relationship turned very sour later in life after Mr. Adams felt like Ansel didn’t do the right thing in a business deal. When the photographer found out about this he stopped using Easton on photographs (early ones say Ansel Easton Adams), then he went to Ansel E. Adams and finally dropped the E all together.
