Welcome to Hillsborough
The Town of Hillsborough is an entirely residential community located approximately 20 miles south of the City of San Francisco, minutes away from San Francisco International Airport and nestled between Highways 101 and 280. The community of 10,825 residents encompasses about 3,900 homes and is comprised of uniquely designed neighborhoods situated in the hills and flatlands that make up the town’s eclectic topography. Hillsborough is consistently ranked amongst the wealthiest communities in the country, and due to town zoning and subdivision ordinances, no apartments, condominiums, townhomes, or businesses can be found within Hillsborough.
With neighboring Peninsula towns Burlingame and San Mateo and their vibrant downtown hubs, the surrounding area offers outstanding libraries, parks, shopping and dining. In addition to its tranquil atmosphere and convenient location, Hillsborough offers some of San Mateo’s most exclusive homes, as well as excellent weather, award-winning public schools and an exceptional level of safety. Its residents work diligently at maintaining the historical and strong family-based community values. These are the qualities that have formed the character of Hillsborough and have remained stable for over 100 years.
