The Hillsborough community of San Mateo County provides a lifestyle limited to only a few of its kind. For one, Hillsborough is residential only – excluding schools, government buildings, and outdoor recreation facilities – which leaves plenty of room for large lots with impressive mansions. With a required home size of at least 2,500 square feet and a required lot size of 0.5 acres, apartments, condos, and townhomes don’t exist here.
Hillsborough homes for sale sit along impeccably landscaped streets and hillside. The scenery of scattered homes, and the prevalence of trees and shrubbery helps to maintain a welcomed level of privacy that homeowners, some of which are athletes, celebrities, and tech executives, naturally enjoy. Hillsborough is a city of multi-million dollar ranch-style and custom-built homes – which is ideal for residents and home buyers who want to get away from it all.
And, the location isn’t bad either.
Hillsborough is south of San Francisco on the Peninsula, connected by Highway 280, and even further south leads you to Silicon Valley. Being ranked one of the wealthiest cities in the nation for its size, it’s no surprise that high income Bay Area residents are at home here in Hillsborough. But it’s not just the homes and location that make this community appealing.
Schools in Hillsborough stand alone as some of the most highly-regarded in the Bay Area and beyond. The city has it’s own public elementary and middle school system, while high-school students attend schools in San Mateo Union High School District. There are also a few private schools for parents and students who prefer the option. Hillsborough is complete with schools and homes, creating a family-friendly environment for young and seasoned professionals alike.
