"Small Millbrae Adjacent Neighborhood"

Burlingame Village, at the edge of Millbrae, is a small slice of a neighborhood made up mostly of smaller older homes. It is a flat neighborhood with streets that are slightly narrower than most you would see in neighborhoods these days.

On the northern end of the neighborhood along the final 2 blocks you get a combination of apartment buildings and office buildings. The office building include a mix of medical and governmental institutions such as the Peninsula Chiropractic Center, San Mateo Rape Trauma Services, Burlingame Police Department and Quest Diagnostics.

A one bedroom apartment around this area will run you about $1700 from what I’ve seen offered.

The Millbrae CalTrain is just three long blocks up so residents can, in theory walk, or even more easily bike and then commute to work in the city.

Most of the residential homes are on the southern end of the neighborhood, where the median prices seems to be about $875K. As throughout Burlingame, the higher prices are largely due to location. Burlingame’s great schools, low crime, and ease of access to both San Francisco and Silicon Valley make it a favorite for commuting power couples.

Overall a pretty nice spot.

"Uninteresting neighborhood"

Simply put, Burlingame Village is an uninteresting neighborhood located along the San Francisco peninsula. It is a thin slice of land encompassing about a half dozen blocks of monotonous, lower middle-class housing. But its most appealing characteristic is its proximity to the San Francisco bay (about a 5 minute drive). The area spans about less than 0.3 square miles and is home to just about 600 residents. Of those, it is a largely white population (over 75%), with the rest a mix between hispanic and asian backgrounds.

Burlingame Village’s residential quarters is a flat and somewhat flavorless community. Homes are old and mostly built before the 1950’s. They are rather small in size (typically one-story), with plain yards, an attached one-car garage and thin driveways. Moreover, residences usually sit on small patches of properties and are tightly packed into neat little rows. If you’re looking for larger, more luxurious homes, head towards Oxford and Cambridge Road. And for perspective residents, the median price of homes are estimated just below $1 million, while rents will bring you back $2,000 to $2,500/month.

For your shopping options, there is a small (half a block) commercial area situated along El Camino Real. The area provides only minor neighborhood shopping options, including a Subway, a Starbucks, a convenient store and a couple boutique restaurants. The community is also served by the Mills-Peninsula Medical Center, Mills High School and the Millbrae Caltrain, all of which anchor the northwestern corner of the neighborhood.
