Hillsborough is one of the most prestigious addresses in the San Francisco bay area, and in fact the entire United States. Located on the San Mateo Peninsula, about 20 miles south of San Francisco, Hillsborough is the upper peninsula equivalent to the lower peninsula city of Atherton (Hillsborough was the model — Atherton came later). The population of Hillsborough is about 11,000 people. The 2010 census counted 3,864 housing units in Hillsborough — 3,844 were single family detached houses, 11 were single family attached homes, and 9 were mutliple home units. Hillsborough’s 3 schools are among the highest scoring in California. Crocker Middle School was named as one of the four best on earth by the Swedish Academy of Sciences. Teenagers usually attend San Mateo High or Burlingame High, with scores in the 80th to 90th percentiles, statewide. In order to support fire and police services, there is a local annual parcel tax that residents pay in addition to their property taxes. Hillsborough homes are set on larger lots amongst rolling hills, with mature trees lining the narrow, winding streets. Unlike in Atherton, which is largely flat in topography, the gentle rolling hills of Hillsborough provide many of the homes with enough elevation to allow dramatic views, some of which are of the bay. Among the landmarks in Hillsborough are the early 20th century mansions of William Henry Crocker and William Randolph Hearst.

After the 1906 earthquake leveled many of the great mansions of San Francisco, Hillsborough’s reputation as the place for the wealthy began to rise. Hillsborough was intended as a country retreat, away from the city — it incorporated in 1910, and passed zoning laws forbidding almost all businesses. These laws remain in force today. Although the city features many spectacular mansions, there are also several quite ordinary homes throughout Hillsborough. However, the real estate rule of location, location, and location has certainly been applied here — you will not find any “deals” or “bargains” on Hillsborough real estate. You will pay dearly for the Hillsborough address, and that is the general idea. At least the stunning mansions and excellent residential-only neighborhoods, plus the abundance of mature trees and beautiful wooded hills and bay views make one feel that one IS actually getting something SPECIAL for one’s money, however — unlike many OTHER cities in the bay area that offer fairly unimpressive homes and geography for one’s one or two million plus dollars.
