Glendale Village, one of the more “affordable” neighborhoods in San Mateo, is located between Highway 101 to the east, El Camino to the west, 40th Avenue to the south, and Hillsdale Boulevard to the north. It is a neighborhood of primarily single-story homes, although there have been some second-story additions over the years. You will typically find three bedroom SFRs, with a few two bedroom, four bedroom, and even one six bedroom currently available. Architecture is run-of-the-mill suburban, primarily ranchers and bungalows. But it is a close-knit neighborhood, with George Hall Elementary School within walking distance for residents of the area, and there is even a neighborhood Association with meetings, a newsletter, and an online site. Bonus: you have easy access to Highway 101, Hillsdale CalTrain, SamTrans, and Hillsdale Shopping Center.
