Tobin Clark

Some Representative Streets: Anguido Court, Brandon Court, Clydesdale, Mountainwood Lane, Tobin Clark Drive, Tournament, Verbalee, Moutainwood Lane

Neighborhood Overview:

Worldly scenic glamour culminating in a thrilling hilltop summit overlooking the Bay Area. Newer luxury constructions from the 1970s, 80s, 90s, to current, situated on larger lots that maximize the views. Home to the still-preserved circa-1931 Tobin Clark Estate (of Hibernia Bank fame), originally dubbed “House on Hill,” at that time surrounded by polo fields, stables, and fox-hunting countryside. Sub-areas within Tobin Clark include “Polo Terrace” (Woodland, Bridle, Trophy Court, Percheron, etc.) and Hillsborough's newest enclave of 14 homes, the circa 2000s Mountainwood area (Mountainwood Lane: accessed off of Clydesdale as well as San Mateo’s Yew Street)

Appeal for Residents and Homeseekers:

Entering streets such as Tournament, Tobin Clark Drive, and Verbalee, it is immediately felt that Tobin Clark focuses on newer grand luxury homes. Bay vistas are a soaring, memorable impression. The pastoral quiet of streets such as Clydesdale and Bridle also instills a nice neighborhood ambiance. While not a "heart of Hillsborough" location, this location offers convenience to Aragon High School, downtown San Mateo, and Highway 92. For those seeking the ultimate "top of the hill" view mansion ambiance, you could do no better than the upper blocks of Tobin Clark Drive and Brandon Court.


Potentially Adverse Aspects for Residents and Homeseekers:

The Tobin Clark Area, as well as adjacent Parrott Drive Area,  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 and Crocker Middle School as well. Arguably, these areas may have less of a community feel due to minimal walkability and the remoteness from the central parts of Hillsborough such as Lower South, Lower North, and Mid South.
