Homes for Sale in Homestead, San Mateo, CA

Homestead is a haven of affordable homes in an enticing location, steps away from superb amenities.

This neighborhood traces its roots back to Antoine Borel’s 100-acre country estate. The transformation began in 1961 when the land was subdivided, giving rise to what is now called Homestead or the Husing Subdivision. It consists of history-rich dwellings featuring pre-war architectural styles. With thoughtful upgrades, each residence offers modern comfort and functionality. The community also boasts a green space at Borel Park featuring play areas and inviting walking paths. Nearby, the Borel Shopping Center provides convenient amenities housing a retail mall, a CVS branch, a fitness center, and plenty of restaurants in the surrounding areas.

AFFORDABLE ELEGANCE: Homestead, San Mateo, CA, emerges as a cost-effective alternative to Aragon. Choose from the 1920s and 1930s classic styles, with bungalows, Craftsman, and Spanish-style residences gracing the landscape. Streets like Quince, Rhus, and Shaffer exude a familiarity akin to Aragon but with a subtle distinction of being slightly smaller and more affordable. It provides similar advantages such as central location, excellent school district, and highway connectivity, all at a somewhat less expensive entry price. You get the same overall feel without draining your bank account.

URBAN CONVENIENCE: Homestead enclaves are less than 2 miles from downtown San Mateo, offering the perfect blend of suburban tranquility and city buzz. You’ll have swift access to the thriving cultural and commercial hub with shops, restaurants, and entertainment.
