About the Easton Addition Neighborhood
Since 2018, property values in Burlingame’s most popular neighborhood have increased 18%, from an average of $2.8 million to $3.3 million. More notably, overall sales have increased by 50%. For 2021, though, Easton Addition contained arguably Burlingame’s most stable market. Overall sales, average and median home prices, average DOM and sale price to list price ratio were more or less static, and whereas in 2020 Easton Addition sales accounted for 30% of Burlingame’s overall figure, this year they only made up 26% of total sales. What’s interesting about Easton in 2021 and in 2020, though, is its lack of outlier sales. Unlike some other Burlingame districts (notably ones that until recently were considered entry-level) Easton Addition sales are distributed fairly evenly across a limited range of price points. In 2021 that meant that 40% of all sales fell between $2 and $3 million, 33% between $3 and $4 million and 22% between $4 and $5 million, with one sale coming in at $5 million and two below $2 million. This is consistent with the range in 2020 with one notable exception: the $4 to $5 million range, which increased its market share from 16% to 22% in 2021.

Ansel I. and Adeline Easton’s Black Hawk horse ranch once covered 1,500 acres. The Easton estate, and the 1,500-acre estate of Mrs. Easton’s brother D.O. Mills, occupied all of what is now Burlingame north of Sanchez Creek. The Easton estate extended from Sanchez Creek north to Mills Creek (near present day Adeline Drive) and the Mills estate extended from Mills Creek to El Portal Creek (near present day Mills Avenue).
Today, The Easton Addition takes it name from the Eastons’ son Ansel Mills Easton who subdivided his parents’ ranch and developed the area west of El Camino Real in the decades before and after World War I. The area is referred to as the Easton “Addition” because it was not originally included in the city’s borders when Burlingame incorporated in 1908. We are not sure why Easton didn’t join Burlingame originally at the time of incorporation, but probably because most of the wealthy landowners were worried that they’d be taxed (Mills didn’t join and Hillsborough didn’t join either). The last remaining 25 acres of Black Hawk Ranch were sold to Charles Howard, the owner of the great racehorse Seabiscuit, in 1925.
Ansel Easton Adams, the famous photographer, is named after Ansel M. Easton; the famous photographer’s parents admired Mr. Easton, who was married to Louise Adams Easton, the photographer’s aunt. Ansel Adams (the photographer) was named after his uncle because at one time his father greatly admired his brother-in-law, but the relationship turned very sour later in life after Mr. Adams felt like Ansel didn’t do the right thing in a business deal. When the photographer found out about this he stopped using Easton on photographs (early ones say Ansel Easton Adams), then he went to Ansel E. Adams and finally dropped the E all together.
“Easton Addition is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in all of Burlingame.”
Burlingame’s Easton Addition is arguably the city’s signature neighborhood. Located within walking distance of Broadway’s low-key shops and restaurants and an easy drive to Burlingame Avenue, Easton Addition balances access to urban amenities and easy auto and CalTrain commutes with the serene seclusion of a long-established residential neighborhood. It’s streets are lined mature trees and a mixture of vintage -- turn-of-the-century bungalows, stately Victorians, Arts & Crafts-style cottages -- and contemporary homes, usually with at least three bedrooms and often as much as five. The picturesque neighborhood is near multiple parks and medical service providers and even boasts its own, elegant, Mission-style branch of the venerable Burlingame Public Library. A gem in the heart of a residential neighborhood which is particularly popular among all the young families in the area.
