San Mateo


Laurelwood/Sugarloaf is one of San Mateo’s “newest” neighborhoods

One of San Mateo’s “newest” communities lies in its westernmost quadrant, near Highway 280 and north of the large, protected 225-acre open space after which it was named. Laurelwood is distinctly different from other San Mateo neighborhood, resembling neighborhoods in the western hills of San Carlos and Redwood City more than it does traditional pre-war neighoborhoods like Baywood or post-war gridded suburbs like Hillsdale.

Its smaller properties – Laurelwood counts among its housing inventory a number of attached homes, some, like those in the Sugarloaf subdivision, built during the 1980s – sell for around $1.4 to $1.8 million, while its larger, single-family homes for sale fetch prices at or near $2 million, ranging from $1.8 to $2.2 million. As a whole, the neighborhood notched a recent median sale price of $1.7 million. It’s worth mentioning that the open floor plans of the Sugarloaf tract style homes are quite popular, and many have gorgeous views.

Schools & History


Whatever Laurelwood and Sugarloaf are now, they could have been much more. If not for the efforts of local preservation groups, 40% of what is now Laurelwood Park would have become homes (enough for 5,800 residents) and office space in 1972. 7000 local citizens signed a petition to halt development. Ultimately, the city moved forward with a minimized plan. Laurelwood Park was created in 1978.
