San Mateo Knolls/Laurel Creek Farms real estate is attractive to those seeking a bit of remove from the downtown din. Homes located far from Alameda de las Pulgas have large lots – often 10,000 square feet or more – and boast more than 2,000 square feet of interior living space, with three or four bedrooms, two-car garages and open, mid-century-inspired floorplans. Many have views, some of San Francisco Bay. Mixed in among them are even larger, two-story homes of the same 1960s vintage. These properties are at the high end of San Mateo Knolls and have been known of late to command as much as $2 to $2.3 million on the open market, though most settle into the $1.5 to $1.9 million range.
Houses located near the Alameda resemble David Bohannon’s Hillsdale tracts, boxy three-bedroom, single-story homes on smaller lots, older by a decade than their western neighbors. Neighborhoods are neatly-maintained. San Mateo Knolls homes for sale in this part of the neighborhood can be had for prices beginning at or around $1.2 or $1.3 million, while larger homes to the west range from the $1.4 to $1.7 million, with a few topping out at $2 million.
