"Southern San Mateo Charmer"
Originally part of the Borel Estates (whose decendents gave 11 acres for the nearby middle school), this street only goes west of El Camino. It is the central street for a tree-lined neighborhood built in patches (5-10 homes at a time), is near a couple of small shopping malls, and provides immediate access to HWY 92 which goes from Hayward in the East Bay to Half Moon Bay on the Pacific Ocean. I taught at the middle school for years and got to know the 'hood well. While almost all San Mateo housing is more expensive than anyone out of area expects (home of the $500,000 fixer upper!), it seems that good value for one's dollar is present in south San Mateo as well as great Bay Area access.
