San Bruno

San Bruno Park

San Bruno Park closely resemble those found in San Francisco’s Richmond and Sunset neighborhoods than they do the raised ranches and split-levels of Crestmoor, et. al.

San Bruno’s oldest neighborhood is actually two neighborhoods; San Bruno Park, which extends from the 380 freeway to San Felipe Avenue, and from Huntington Avenue to El CaminoReal, includes within its borders a separate MLS district, downtown San Bruno. It is the most urban neighborhood in San Bruno and it could not be more unlike the city’s western “suburbs” if it tried.

Downtown San Bruno, with its dizzying array of ethnic restaurants and grocery stores, its various shops and the only legally operating casino in San Mateo County, Artichoke Joe’s, is a short walk from home for those living in San Bruno Park. The Shops at Tanforan, the local mall built on the site of San Bruno’s once-famous Tanforan Race Track, is just outside of neighborhood boundaries. For all of this convenience San Bruno Park homebuyers pay less than those in any other San Bruno neighborhood, snapping up homes for between $650,000 and $850,000 in recent months. It is rare, at present, for a home in San Bruno Park to top the $1 million mark.

After the establishment of the #40 Line Trolley, which ran down The Peninsula from SanFrancisco, real estate group Hensley, Green & Company began selling lots in San Bruno Park for $200 down and $25 monthly. Prospective buyers took the #40 to San Bruno, where they were greeted by a band and a picnic as they toured the new city. Unfortunately, most of the buyers were speculative San Franciscans who purchased lots on unpaved streets and did nothing to improve them. Lots sat empty for two and three decades. Many owners eventually lost their land through unpaid taxes, leading to a second land rush, as the city, now established, incorporated for 20 years and with a population of 3,500, rushed to re-sell. Eventually, the land was re-purchased and developed. Over time, San Bruno Park filled in and became an urban neighborhood, but the original uniform vision of the neighborhood never came to fruition. Instead, today’s San Bruno Park is a hodgepodge of different homes from different eras.
