Parrott Drive Area

Some Representative Streets: Glenbrook, Parrott Drive, Salmark

Neighborhood Overview:

A spectacular association with surrounding topography…vast canyon vistas, precipitous hillsides, and a brilliant view horizon of the Bay, twinkling City lights, and western Santa Cruz mountain range.  Convenience to the hill’s apex linking to College of San Mateo, Highway 92, and Crystal Springs Watershed lands.

Appeal for Residents and Homeseekers:

The Parrott Drive area offers some of Hillsborough's most dramatic Bay views. There is also exceptional entry-level value to be found in comparison to other areas such as Lower South or Lower North. Architecturally, there are many ranch homes along Parrott Drive from the 1950s and 1960s that can offer solid value, often under $2,000,000 on half-acre lots. There are also some newer constructions from the 1980s-2000s that will resemble the large newer estates of the Tobin Clark area. The feeling of hilltop privacy is prevalent in this area, often framed by the Bay vistas. The area is disconnected from the "heart of Hillsborough" and adjacent to top San Mateo neighborhoods such as Baywood Knolls. Parrott Drive runs west all the way through San Mateo to the Crystal Springs Shopping Center. The Highway 92 connection is near this junction.


Potentially Adverse Aspects for Residents and Homeseekers:

The Parrott Drive area, as well as adjacent Tobin Clark,  are not  "heart of Hillsborough" locations, meaning these areas have an annexed feeling and largely require passing through neighboring San Mateo for access. This means a longer drive to South Elementary School as well. It may also contribute to less of a community feel due to the remoteness. The areas are mostly comprised of dramatic hills, so walking may be prohibitive.
