Conceived as an entry-level to middle-class option for families looking to flee the city in favor of quiet suburbia — and later for G.I.s returning from the war — Mills Park has remained true to its founders’ original vision, even as local housing prices edge toward the $1 million mark.
For a number of reasons, Mills Park real estate is among San Bruno’s most popular. It is convenient to downtown, El Camino Real, the 380 freeway, BART, and Caltrain and its curving, quiet streets easily makes it the kind of suburban neighborliness that is often missing from urban and rural settings. The locals keep their homes in good condition and their yards trimmed and their gardens well-tended. Perhaps this is why Mills Park homes soared past the $1 million median mark recently, with the most recent sales falling in the $1.38 to $2.4 million range.
