Mid North / Homeplace

Some Representative Streets: Barroilhet (upper), Conifer, El Arroyo, El Centro, Eucalyptus (upper), Farm Lane, Homeplace Court, San Raymundo, Stonepine

Overview:

Undulating topography caresses an assemblage of luxury homes spanning the generations: from European revival masterpieces of the 1920s and 1930s (El Arroyo, San Raymundo, etc.), to enclaves of stunning modern constructions from the 1980s, 1990s (Barroilhet, Homeplace, Farm Lane etc.) and up to the current day. The feeling of slight elevation gently within the hills begins to reveal notheasterly horizons towards San Francisco Bay.

Appeal for Residents and Homeseekers:

Mid North/Homeplace is the most eclectic of the 10 neighborhoods on my proprietary neighborhood map as it encompasses newer enclaves such as Homeplace, alongside established 1920s grandeur of streets such as El Arroyo, El Centro, and San Raymundo. Homeplace will be highly desired by those seeking newer luxury homes from the 1980s, 1990s, and into present day. Streets such as the west end of Barroilhet, and the upper end of Eucalpytus boasts large newer luxury estates on commanding parcels. Farm Lane off of Barroilhet has a collection of grand scale estates in a pastoral environment. Proximity to Burlingame, North School, Crocker, and either Highway 280 or 101, make this a convenient "Heart of Hillsborough" location.


Historic Notes:

Homeplace was originally the estate of Jennie Crocker Henderson (granddaughter of Big Four magnate Charles Crocker). Designed in 1926 by Gordon Kaufmann (an architect of Hoover Dam) on approx. 130 acres at the end of Barroilhet, this estate remained the home of Jennie Crocker until her death in 1974. By 1976, the estate was demolished and the grounds subdivided.  Further south in this Mid North area, you will find magnificent European revival designs of the 1920s and 1930s, as seen along the 400 block of El Arroyo Road
