A prosperous suburban community located in the heart of San Mateo County
and bordered by towns of Burlingame
and San Mateo
, Hillsborough real estate lies just east of Highway 280 and west of Highway 101 and El Camino Real, and is close to the cities of San Jose and San Francisco. Hillsborough real estate communities are served by the San Mateo Union High School District, Hillsborough City School District, and the Crystal Springs Uplands School. Hillsborough real estate consists mainly of single-family homes and larger estates within a strictly zoned district. Some of the regulations include the mandate that each residence must be at least 2,500-square-feet in size, and built on no less than 0.5 acres in order to preserve the exclusive characteristics of the area. Hillsborough homes offer an impressive variety of amenities for their residents, including three city-run parks, 259 acres of open space set aside for preservation of nature, as well as several events and programs for all ages.
