One of the most desirable places to live in America. Hillsborough offers homeowners fabulous schools, large private lots and incredible convenience. Hillsborough is unique in that it has no commercial zoning and thus no businesses within the town limits; the only non-residential properties are the town's four public and three private schools, town and county government offices, a golf course, a country club, and a park. However private Hillsborough may be, just outside of its borders homeowners find restaurants, shops and major commuter arteries. The public school system in Hillsborough is amongst California’s finest, with an excellent faculty to student ratio and a successful technology program.
Tree lined, rolling hill roads are absent from sidewalks and create a rare peaceful seclusion. Hillsborough is adorned with multi-million dollar estates and however luxurious these estates may be they do offer a fine balance of subtlety and comfort. Large homes provide homeowners and their families with much accommodation. Additionally, many residents of Hillsborough are drawn to the privacy that comes with these estates. Often tucked behind property walls and fences are brilliant homes that provide a touch of seclusion without feeling isolated. To learn about the aesthetics of Hillsborough neighborhoods, one simply has to walk down the street.
