"Pricey digs and Country Club living"

If you’re living in Country Club Manor, you’re living in the land of luxury. The community is a quiet and enormously affluent Hillsborough neighborhood saturated with long, single story homes and new, bulky two-story homes. The area spans about 0.7 square miles, most of which is taken up by the Burlingame Country Club, (which serves as the district’s epicenter) and green, leafy communal spaces. As a result, only a few residential streets are inhabited, making for a total population of just under 600. Demographically speaking, the district is a largely white population with a pretty sizable asian minority.

For the perspective resident, most homes were built in the mid 20th century with a mix between traditional, California ranch homes and larger, post modern homes. In fact, many older homes have been revamped or added on to in recent years, constructing beautiful house fronts and 9+ rooms of living space (or 4,000-to 5,000 square feet). These residences are usually situated on enormous properties with well-manicured lawns which are sometimes hidden beneath the woodsy terrain. For numbers sake, average house values upwards of $2 million, while median household incomes are a whopping $215,000/year.

If you’re looking for recreation, the Burlingame Country Club is the place to be. The private association offers a fantastic 18-hole golf course, a driving range, a handful of tennis courts and a great swimming pool for young families. But don’t get too excited. Last I checked, the initiation fee is a steep $50,000, while the monthly rate is a whopping $800 per month. Elsewhere, the neighborhood is convenient to North Elementary School, which so happens to be one of Hillsborough’s three acclaimed school programs.

"Four!"

The Country Club Manor neighborhood is mostly taken up by the Hillsborough Country Club and its sprawling golf course.
Not being a member of this club (they are a private country club) I can’t tell you much about this facility other than it looks pretty nice from the outside.

There are some homes in this neighborhood. They are mostly on the eastern end of the golf course though some of them encroach onto the range dividing it into two promontories. I suppose if you live here you should be ready for the occasional golf ball through the window.

There are some really attractive homes here, including Eichlers and Mediterranean style homes. Very well kept and beautiful.

What’s the price tag?

I don’t know because no homes are for sale in the neighborhood right now, but given this is Hillsborough, you are probably talking in the millions for even the smallest of homes here.
Pros
  • Nice Golf Course
  • Nice Homes
  • Great Schools
Cons
  • Very, Very Expensve
  • Golf Course Problems
  • No Nightlife
