Portola Highlands is a small, secluded neighborhood in San Bruno’s western hills. Access to this enclave of a little over 1,000 residents is via Sneath Lane, which then circles the exterior of the district, passing small, exclusively residential streets named after California counties.
Homes here are newer than most in San Bruno. Though the neighborhood has a handful of dwellings built in the 1940s and 50s, development of Portola Highlands didn’t begin in earnest until 1963. Growth came fast after that. Today, almost 70 percent of Portola Highlands homes were built between 1960 and 1969, a distinction that comes with a few perks; notably, the houses in this classic post-war suburban neighborhood are larger than those “down the hill.” Most have three or four bedrooms and upwards of 2,000 square feet of living space and have been selling for between $1.1 and $1.5 million with a recent median of $1.28 million.
