Excellent Burlingame schools
Burlingame Hills’ often-overlooked secret— that it’s Burlingame’s greatest value at $1,195 per square foot — again made it the city’s second-most popular neighborhood in 2022 for the most number of sales (after Easton Addition), but like the rest of Burlingame, it suffered by comparison to 2021. 21 homes sold in Burlingame Hills last year, a decline of 38% from 2021 but still 61% increase over the 13 that sold in 2020. Average home values fell slightly, from $3.225 (a 22% increase from 2020) to $3.177 million, but there are enough indicators, like a 53% fall in average DOM from 2021 to 2022 to suggest that, despite the challenges posted by larger market conditions Burlingame Hills has gained a foothold among Burlingame buyers.
The closest public elementary schools are Hoover Elementary. Nueva Elementary is nearby down the road on Skyline, and is a private elementary and middle school focusing on the arts for gifted and talented children.

Better value than a comparably sized home in Easton Addition
Not walking distance to a park, Burlingame Ave, or Broadway
Though a large lot is a possibility, it can be challenging to find one with a level yard
The neighborhood is unincorporated San Mateo County

Burlingame shares a common history with neighbors San Mateo, Millbrae and Hillsborough, but only up to a point. Like the surrounding communities, Burlingame was once the site of native Costanoan villages and then part of a Mexican land grant (Rancho Buri Buri to the north and Rancho San Mateo to the south). Burlingame’s history diverges from that of nearby Peninsula cities in the late 1800s, when Francis Newlands, son-in-law of landowner and Nevada Senator William Sharon, came up with a plan to turn this stretch of real estate into a playground for San Francisco’s wealthiest residents.
