"Burlingame's Best Old Neighborhood"

With its big old homes, Easton is definitely one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in Burlingame. The median home price here is around $1.2 million. More than half the homes here date to the Roaring Twenties, each with its own unique architecture. You can sense the wealth as you drive through the streets here.

There are classic manors, with their square build and the overhanging flat roofs with attractive trim. Many of the homes here have Tudor accents such as half timbering. Others are more of the Mediterranean style with red tiled roofs and stucco walls.
The homes here also range in sizes with some small bungalow style homes offering barely more than 1000 feet, while some of the larger manors range up to 4000 feet. (These are also the more expensive homes.)

The front lawns often are decorated with interesting topiary—often incorporating English style hedges or rose bushes.

You will also find some 60’s style boxy apartment buildings along El Camino—the kind of apartment buildings that have the name to the building written sideways in fancy script.

Easton Drive, the main artery, is perhaps one of the most compelling of the lanes as well, having towering trees lining the narrow lane—there large bases taking up huge portions of the sidewalks.

As you might expect, this is also a very safe neighborhood (nothing to report accept petty thefts in the last six months) and the schools are fantastic, as throughout Burlingame.

The other nice thing about this neighborhood is that with Broadway just beyond El Camino sporting a half dozen restaurants and a pleasant walk, you are right by the action. You can get a beer Behan’s and a bite at the Broadway Grill.

Also, with the Broadway CalTrain just a few blocks down Broadway, you could actually avoid using a car from most homes in Easton.

Overall, I would say that this is probably the best residential neighborhood in all of Burlingame. Though, of course, you will definitely pay for the privilege of living here.

"Better than your average Burlingame community"

Nestled along the San Francisco peninsula and within close proximity to the San Francisco bay, Easton Addition a comfortable, family-friendly community. It offers a varied degree of middle to upper middle-class aesthetics and beautiful homes. Demographically speaking, the area has a total population approaching 6,000. Its racial makeup is made up of mostly white residents (over 75%) with a mix of asian and hispanic residents rounding out the rest of the community. The district is also rather large in size for Burlingame, spanning about 0.75 square miles.

Easton Addition is a very charming and clean-cut image of middle-class suburbia. As a whole, streets are organized in a grid-like fashion. It also elicits a somewhat cozy feel with wide, tree-lined streets and relatively attractive house fronts. For perspective residents, Easton Addition is a somewhat reclusive neighborhood with a wide variety of homes. Most residences are old and built before the 1940’s, which can be a bit off putting. But for the most part, the area offers a plethora of large, two-story homes plotted on relatively sizable properties. They provide thin driveways leading into side yards and grassy, shallow front yards with little walkways leading up to front porches. The area is also pretty safe, with crime being of little concern to the average resident.

For numbers sake, the bulk of homes are priced just above $1.3 million while median household incomes is just below $110,000/year. If you’re looking to rent, the community’s median rent is above the average Burlingame district ($1,500/month). Easton Addition’s most lucrative area is situated towards the southwestern region of the neighborhood. Also, the Mills-Peninsula Medical Center serves the community and anchors the northwestern corner of the district and serves.
