After seeing an unusual drop in overall sales in 2020, Hillsborough Oaks came back to life in 2021, recording 11 total sales (up from six in 2020) and seeing overall average home values skyrocket from $5.813 million to $7.645 million, an increase of 32% (median up 18% to $6.45 million). Homes in Hillsborough Oaks did this while averaging 26 DOM, down from 49 in 2020 and notching an average price per square foot of $1,383, up 10% from 2020. We could point out that Hillsborough Oaks’ 2021 numbers include a pair of eight-figure sales, but they also include two more that sold for $9.95 million, meaning that 33% of all sales in the neighborhood were right at or well above $10 million.
Also unique is Hillsborough Oaksbridge’s location, within walking distance of Burlingame’s Broadway downtown neighborhood. Easy access to shopping and dining, El Camino Real and the 101 freeway makes this a neighborhood for pragmatists, something singer/actor Bing Crosby must have considered when he purchased a home on Jackling Drive in the 1960s. Crosby lived in the home until his passing. His widow Kathryn Crosby, continues to live there today. The home was one of five homes featured on the 2010 Hillsborough Centennial Historic Homes Tour.

Hillsborough Oaksbridge neighborhood is all about subtlety and grace
Hillsborough Oaksbridge doesn’t announce itself with blaring horns and balloons. Instead, it simply evolves, appearing on quiet residential lanes as they head west out of Burlingame. Suddenly, the atmosphere quiets. Thick foliage replaces neatly-trimmed trees and the homes get larger. Hillsborough Oaksbridge, a smaller (population approximately 800, total area of a half-mile square) neighborhood in lower Hillsborough bordering the southern edge of Burlingame’s Easton Addition, is about subtlety and grace. Like Ryan Tract, its next-door neighbor, Hillsborough Oaksbridge has been impressive for so long that there’s no one left to impress.
