25 ASTER AVENUE, located in one of the Peninsula’s most desirable neighborhoods, is nestled along a secluded tree-lined street within the lower north end of Hillsborough—and ideally, just a short distance from Downtown Burlingame. With more than a half-acre of lush level land, the home is completely sequestered by gardens, towering heritage trees, and a tall vine-draped privacy wall. 

Inside, a free-flowing floor plan moves through the gracious formal rooms and into an exceptional gourmet eat-in kitchen—the ideal venue to cater elaborate feasts or create everyday meals for friends and family. The kitchen opens directly into a spacious great room with media built-ins, and French doors flanking two sides of this spacious room and open out to the fabulous outdoor entertaining areas. 

Generous personal quarters are comprised of one main-level bedroom and adjacent full bathroom, plus four upper-level bedroom suites highlighted by a gorgeous master suite with luxurious spa bath. Added bonuses include a top-level recreation room with billiards table, a large fitness room, two laundry centers, and a mudroom with access to a three car garage. 

Rounding out this appealing lifestyle home are the stunning grounds of approximately two-thirds of an acre, where an entertainment terrace has a full outdoor kitchen and barbecue grill, a swimming pool with spa, a pool house with full bath, playhouse and pavilion for dining under the stars. Close to excellent schools and just minutes from upscale shopping and dining in Burlingame, this amazing home offers the very best of town-and-country living.

In 1839, William Davis Merry Howard, the son of a shipping magnate from Hillsboro, New Hampshire, came to California as a cabin boy. Convinced there were fortunes to be made here, Howard would eventually settle in Hillsborough and build a large estate much like the ones for which the city is known today.

Hillsborough was incorporated in 1910 — a “perfumed city,” as one newspaper reported — that, to this day, continues to attract some of the Bay Area’s most affluent families.

In a Few Words

Prestigious, excellent schools

Living Here

Since Hillsborough has no commercial zoning, there are no businesses located within the town limits. In fact, the only non-residential properties here are a park, a golf course and country club, four public and three private schools, and town and county government facilities.

Not to worry, however, because neighboring Belmont, Burlingame, San Mateo, Millbrae, and San Carlos provide every opportunity to meet your shopping, dining, and entertainment needs.


Zoning laws have been consistently and rigidly enforced to offer space and serenity to Hillsborough’s residents. In fact, since 1937, the minimum lot size has remained a half-acre, with a minimum frontage of 150 feet.

Why Hillsborough?

In addition to its peaceful atmosphere, beautiful setting, and proximity to the City and the rest of Silicon Valley, Hillsborough has been recognized on a county, state, national and international level for excellence in education, making it a first choice for many families living in the Bay Area.
