Lower North

Some Representative Streets: Sharon, Floribunda, Brookvale, New Place, Ralston (lower), Pepper, Parkside, Brewer, Fagan, Jackling

Overview:

A prestigious and pioneering area of residences on flat parcels not far from Burlingame amenities. Some streets revolve around the golf course of the Burlingame Country Club, one of America’s longest established private country clubs, and a galvanizing central focus of Hillsborough’s historic early days. Some residences offer dramatic fairway views from oversized estate parcels (such as Brookvale, Eucalyptus, and New Place), while others embody more understated suburban comfort with ranch-style floorplans on flat avenues (such as Hillsborough Boulevard, Country Club, and Pepper). Fabulous community proximity to North Elementary and Crocker Middle. Walkablility to downtown Burlingame. Easy commute connection onto Highway 280 via Ralston and Chateau. Further north, streets such as Fagan, Jackling, and Baileyana are an architectural treasure trove amidst easily navigated flat streets not far from Burlingame amenities.

Appeal for Residents and Homeseekers:

Lower North is one of the most desirable and valuable communities of Hillsborough. The streets are largely flat and walkable, many within an easy stroll of Burlingame Avenue shops and restaurants. North Elementary school is a central focus. North posted a stellar 986 API Score (Academic Performance Index) on the most recently released results. Major estates are lined along the golf course of the Burlingame Country Club on streets such as Sharon, Floribunda, Brookvale, and Eucalyptus. Land value is at a premium, as exemplified by a recent $5,000,000+ tear-down sale currently under construction. Several of Hillsborough's most valuable and most prestigious streets, such as Brewer, New Place, and Eucalyptus, are located here.

 

Historic Notes:

Beginning with the formation of the Burlingame Country Club in 1893, Hillsborough society flourished around this area, with many of San Francisco’s most influential citizens commuting to country leisure via the newly minted Burlingame Train Depot. Several magnificent estates remain, including La Dolphine, orginally built for George Newhall by Lewis Hobart in 1913, then on 20 acres and known as Newmar. Another intact Lewis Hobart-designed legacy estate is the approx. 50-acre Strawberry Hill, originally known as Villa Rose, and built for financial titan Joseph D. Grant in 1912. William H. Crocker’s circa-1910 New Place mansion now comprises the Burlingame Country Club clubhouse with its iconic gateposts still near the entrance of New Place Road near North School. Also in Lower North’s Fagan area is the Bing Crosby Estate.
