Note From Geoffrey

Off Market Non MLS Hillsborough CA Real Estate Homes for Sale

Call or text Geoffrey at 650-455-3735 to schedule private showings of any Hillsborough listing.

Just Sold! $13,750,000. I was privileged to represent the buyers of a Lower North Hillsborough 1-Acre Estate on Ralston Avenue. I was able to secure the property off-market for my clients. One of Hillsborough's most spectacular 1-acre estates, this masterpiece was designed by Farro Essalat AIA and custom built new in 2013. Spanning nearly 9,000 feet of luxury, the home fuses the best of timeless design with modern accoutrements. Wow-Factor highlights include the grand 2-story lobby, the indoor/outdoor gallery hallway and entertaiment loggia, and a world class CEO-worthy library. Upstairs, 5 bedroom en suites present ultimate accommodations for family, culminating in an opulent master suite with walk-in dressing room and private pool-view balcony. Outside, the manicured grounds echo the majesty of the interiors on a completely flat and usable acre. The pool pavilion is a welcome continuation of gathering destinations. Properties of this caliber, 1 flat acre with new architectural quality in prime Lower Hillsborough, are among the most elite and rare real estate offerings in the Peninsula luxury market. "In a Class of its Own."

Hillsborough 2017 Mid Year Review: Hillsborough is on a pace for fewer sales this year, reflecting the high demand and low supply, while also surging boldly on the key metric of price per sq. ft. For 2017, the Mid Year price per sq. ft. average for Hillsborough homes is currently a solid $1,115 per foot. And many premium properties regularly command $1,300 - $1,500 per foot thus far for the year.

Scanning the sales data below we see an eight-figure closing of the De Guigne Estate on Crystal Springs Road listed at $29,850,000, and closed on June 16 for $23.3 Million. But more significantly, we see robust strength and demand in the popular price point of $4.5 - $6.0, with many representative sales closing with multiple offers over asking under two weeks on market. Some standout examples include 35 Bayberry Place in Lower North (map below) listed for $5,295,000 and closing at $5,900,000 at $1,352 per sq. ft; 632 Fairway Circle in Lower North, listed at $5,100,000 and closing at $5,320,000 at $1,446 per sq. ft.; 413 Hillsborough Blvd listed at $4,595,000 and closing at $4,800,000 at $1,472 per sq. ft. Impressive showing, and these are just to name a few.
