San Bruno

Lomita Park

As is typical for a century-old neighborhood, Lomita Park real estate is characterized by a jumble of styles and eras. The majority of single-family homes in the district were built prior to 1960 and are modest in size, with two or three bedrooms and less than 1,500 square feet of interior living space.

The Lomita Park neighborhood is populated by older bungalows and newer apartment buildings, convenient to downtown, El Camino Real and transportation along with a diverse population.

Traditionally at the entry level of the San Bruno market, Lomita Park real estate has of late been picking up speed. Once a haven for homes available at the $600,000-$800,000 price point, most recent Lomita Park sales have all been at or above $1 million, leaving the neighborhood with a SFR median of $1.1 million -- which remains below the city median and continues to be park of Lomita Park’s charm; the neighborhood delivers maximum convenience (including a short walk for students of Lomita Park Elementary and Capuchino High School) and homes loaded with character at what is still an affordable price.

Post-1960 apartment buildings crowd Lomita Park’s western edge, leveraging their proximity to El Camino Real to attract renters and contributing to a neighborhood whose population density is almost three times that of San Bruno as a whole. Further from El Camino, the neighborhood takes on a look similar to that of neighboring BelleAir, with smallish, vintage homes parked on city lots of 5,000 square feet or less.

Schools & History


Lomita Park students actually attend a Millbrae District elementary school, Lomita Park Elementary (852 API, 6 out of 10 Great Schools, 316 students) before joining their San Bruno neighbors at Parkside Intermediate School, which has 516 students in grades 6through 8, a Great Schools rating of 7 out of 10 and an API of 785, then finish at Capuchino High School or Peninsula Alternative High School.


Once part of Rancho Buri Buri, what is now Lomita Park was once the possession of noted Peninsula pioneer Ansel L. Easton. In 1904, the land between El Camino Real and the Interurban San Francisco to San Mateo rail line was platted (with streets named after saints), divided into city lots and sold by the Selby Rogers Company. After that, according to Roy W.Cloud in his 1928 work, “The Story of San Mateo County, California,” “…almost immediately a choice subdivision and a number of beautiful homes sprang up.”

The community existed independently for 50 years, adding a post office in 1927, at which time,according to Cloud, it had a population of “about 500.” In 1951, two years after the Interurban ceased running, a majority of Lomita Park residents voted to become part of San Bruno. However, infighting among the residents stretched the process out for three years. It wasn’t until1954 that Lomita Park, the unincorporated community, officially became Lomita Park, the neighborhood in San Bruno.
