A diverse urban neighborhood whose borders include several blocks of San Mateo’s growing downtown, San Mateo's Eastern Addition is an amazingly central location. The neighborhood, which borders Burlingame to the north, sits between Delaware Street and El Camino to the east and west and offers an array of single-family homes, condominiums and apartments stretching across a wide range of price points.
Living here means embracing an urban lifestyle. The Eastern Addition neighborhood is super walkable to Burlingame Avenue’s excellent restaurants and shopping, as well as downtown San Mateo’s shops and restaurants too. Commuters can walk to the downtown CalTrain station or drive a short way to Highway 101. Families will note that venerable San Mateo High School lies within the neighborhood, on Delaware Street.
The Eastern Addition neighborhood includes a mix of romantic bungalow homes, small condo buildings and apartments on pretty tree-lined blocks. Many homes easily sell between $1.5 and $2 million, and two bedroom condos typically start in the $880k range and can easily go over $1 million.
Boasting a convenient location and a downtown vibe but still offering small residential streets and vintage homes — plus a wide variety of apartment and condominium choices — the Eastern Addition neighborhood is an excellent choice for buyers looking for an urban lifestyle that also offers a foothold in the San Mateo market.

San Mateo has it all: a diversity of neighborhoods, great parks, easy access, a plethora of shopping, and home to many businesses and an anchor for employment on the peninsula. With a rich heritage, dating back to the turn of the century with its most famous resident being A.P. Giannini, the founder of the Bank of Italy and later Bank of America, San Mateo offers a delightful spread of activity for all. The downtown area is studded with delicious restaurants and a variety of retail stores, and also boasts a 12 screen movie theatre and one of the largest wine cellars in the country, at Draeger’s Grocery Store. Shopping abounds at Hillsdale and Bridgepointe as well as the many neighborhood shopping centers.
Perhaps the most well known natural area is Coyote Point, a rock outcropped peninsula that juts into San Francisco Bay and home to a natural history museum, the Peninsula Humane Society, windsurfing, a private marina, and large picnic areas with uplifting vistas. Within walking distance of downtown, Central Park has something for everyone: ride the toy train, pick up a game of tennis, take a serene walk through the Japanese Garden, have a picnic while listening to Thursday evening’s Jazz in the Park, or enjoy the playgrounds.
San Mateo attracts a variety of homeowners, from those seeking their first home in the upcoming neighborhoods of the Village, Parkside, or Shoreview, to those looking for more a little more space in Hillsdale or the Meadows, to larger families seeking the spaciousness offered by San Mateo Park, Baywood, and Aragon.

Early San Mateo was a place of large estates and boldface names familiar to anyone who’s driven the town’s streets. Parrott, Hayward, Borel—these were the wealthy pioneers who sowed the seeds that eventually grew into today’s modern city of 100,000 residents. San Mateo was borne from their needs and later from their subdivided land, all around a stagecoach stop established in 1849 by Nicolas de Peyster on former Ohlone tribal land.
