"Par for the Burlingame Course"

Burlingame Park is a slice of a neighborhood at whose center is Pershing Park. On the interior streets there are a lot of bungalows and older homes. Some of them are quite attractive and well-kept and some are a touch less so and show signs of age. Some of my favorite homes here are in the Spanish Revival style—the stucco and red-tiled roofs can be really attractive when well-kept.

As with other parts of Burlingame, the homes here way overpriced simply because they are in Burlingame. The median home here goes for about $1.25 million (although you can find some deals on foreclosures that sell for less than a million a make for great investment opportunities since they virtually automatically double or triple in value).

There are a number of boxy apartment buildings along El Camino—which, as you probably know, is the main avenue that cutting north south all the way down the Peninsula. It turns into a real mess during rush hour, pretty much becoming packed with commuters going to and from work.

There are a fair number of mediocre stores around here—supermarkets and drugstores and the like. Overall, however, this is pretty much your average Burlingame neighborhood, old overpriced homes with great schools and virtually no crime.

You might call it par for the course.

"Cheap country club living"

Burlingame Park is a well-groomed, family-friendly neighborhood separated into two different locations. In fact, the two areas are both small in size and divided by about two residential blocks, but most residents tend to gloss over this fact. They are both nestled next to downtown Burlingame and Country Club Manor and spans about 0.5 square miles of residential terrain. For perspective residents, it is a mix between middle to upper middle-class aesthetics with a wide range of residential options.

Burlingame’s residential quarters provides a mixed bag of suburban residences. They vary from nice, ranch homes with trendy house fronts to short, stumpy homes plotted on small properties. More specifically, there are one-story homes with half-arc driveways clumped towards the western half while more sizable, two-story homes are situated closer to the northern half. If you travel to Manor Drive, it evokes a private, gated community feel with small estates. For cheaper accommodations, head towards the southern corner of the neighborhood and along El Camino Real. The street is considered the district’s main drag and is lined with a couple small homes and varied, mid-rise apartment buildings.

As a whole, the neighborhood is flat, with clean, tree-lined streets/sidewalks. Houses are loosely separated along curving residential streets with long driveways. For numbers sake, homes are priced over $1 million dollars (median house price is $1.6 million). Moreover, the average Burlingame Park household rakes in between $70,000 to $150,000. Demographically speaking, the district is predominately white (over 75%) and made up of about 3,000 residents.
