About the San Mateo Terrace/Beresford Neighborhood
Though the asking prices for San Mateo Terrace homes for sale have changed (to put it mildly) since 1947, the neighborhood profile is similar. Bohannon’s goal was to provide single-family homes priced within the reach of “average” workers and they’re still available to “average” - tech workers. San Mateo Terrace’s west side location adds a premium to its property values, but its smallish (most homes built during Bohannon’s development range in size between 1,000 and 1,500 square feet) houses have kept the neighborhood in the low- to mid-$1 millions range, though many larger view homes can sell for $1.7 to $1.9 million.
