The Easton Addition tells the story of Burlingame. From quaint turn-of-the-century bungalows, to today's marvelous new constructions, this highly desirable area defines the architectural heritage of the "City of Trees." Burlingame's Easton Addition now represents one of the ultimate and most sought-after residential neighborhoods in the entire Bay Area, boasting a rare combination of top-rated schools, architecture that is both beautifully preserved and passionately updated, and a small town tree-lined feeling with an ideal commute to world-class centers of business, culture, travel, and learning.
The neighborhood embraces an eclectic demographic ranging from Burlingame natives, to first-time suburb residents coming from San Francisco, to relocating executives from around the world enjoying proximity to employers such as Genentech, Gilead, Oracle, Electronic Arts, Visa, as well as easy commutes into SFO and San Francisco’s Financial District.
Burlingame growth benefited as San Francisco's quintessential suburb, and the homes of the Easton Addition emerged with a pride of craftsmanship equally country charming and city sophisticate. Longtime Burlingame landowners, the Easton family, were the namesake for this picturesque north-end subdivision.
The Easton Addition neighborhood is a time capsule, with every architectural trend of the 20th century reflected along the storybook "explorer-named" avenues (think Balboa, Cortez, Cabrillo, De Soto, Drake, and so on). Here you'll find every architectural style for every appeal—from classic Craftsman homes, to romantic European Revivals, Americana Colonials, post-war Traditionals, down to the new sparkling luxury homes of today.
The Easton Addition holds a significant share in Burlingame's real estate desirability. The prime location west of El Camino offers close proximity to Burlingame's highest rated schools including Franklin Elementary, Roosevelt Elementary, and Lincoln Elementary, as well as nearby Burlingame Intermediate School and fine private schools, such as Our Lady of Angels (K-8) on Cabrillo Avenue. Unlimited shopping and dining attractions await in the quiet village settings of Broadway and Burlingame Avenue.
