Skyfarm

Some Representative Streets: Butternut, Camphor Court, Churchill, Cottonwood Court, Eugenia, Jacaranda, Macadamia, Pine Court, Privet, Skyfarm Drive, Tea Tree

Neighborhood Overview:

Dramatic plateaus, soaring vistas, and luxury homes proliferating from the 1970s and into current new construction. Unobstructed views above the waters of the Bay and San Francisco skyline are scenic reminders of the super commute-friendly link onto Highway 280 via Skyline Boulevard.

 

Appeal for Residents and Homeseekers:

New with a view! Being a relatively younger subdivision (started in the 1970s) Skyfarm ensures a newer executive-style housing stock on larger lots (half-acre plus) with sweeping views. It also delivers utmost convenience to Highway 280. The commute ease is impeccable. Some of the closer-in blocks such as Jacaranda and Orange Court,  also connect quickly via Chateau Drive to Crocker Middle School, downtown Burlingame, El Camino, and Highway 101.

 

Historic Notes:

Not visible from any road, the unique Hillsborough Crocker Lake Open Space is tucked below streets such as Jacaranda, Cottonwood, and Skyfarm. Man-made Crocker Lake was originally created to provide irrigation to William H. Crocker’s New Place estate gardens. It is now a rare green belt ecosystem in its own right owned and protected by the Town of Hillsborough. The Skyfarm Mansion (photo 1 below), complete with its glorious ballroom, is now the center of Nueva School. This Italian mansion was designed in 1931 by famous San Francisco architect Arthur Brown, Jr. for William Willard Crocker (grandson of Big Four railroad titan Charles Crocker) to replace the previous 1890s home that had burned down.
