San Mateo Park is arguably San Mateo, California's most premier neighborhood. It also rubs shoulders with arguably the city's most popular neighborhoods of Baywood and Aragon. San Mateo Park real estate was platted around the turn of the 20th century on the west side of El Camino Real. Barroilhet Ave. marks the neighborhood's northerly edge and W. Poplar Ave. courses through its southerly edge. It was intended to create a true sense of suburbia in an elegant, wooded back drop. Its designers followed the trend of the time that sought to remove crowded urban conditions. San Mateo Park homes for sale are often sought for their serene neighborhood features and oversized lots. They are sought for their sprawling floor plans that include many two-story types built from the 1910s through the 30s. Some post ware homes and new construction also add to the attraction.
The most prevalent home styles in the neighborhood include Tudor, Colonial, Craftsman and Mediterranean. Most homes, whatever their style, have up to 4,000 sq. ft. of living space. Five bedrooms and quarter acre lots are not unusual. San Mateo Park real estate typically includes lush trees and foliage forming privacy screens for homes. In fact, instead of a grid-like street layout, real estate planning includes about 70 landscaped traffic circles. That's right, rather than four-way intersections, there are islands to circle around. It's a special, added attraction for living in San Mateo Park.
