Millbrae’s Mills Estates Market Report for 3.11.09

typical-Mills-Estates-homeThe Mills Estates was developed on land that was once part of the Darius Ogden Mills estate that burned down in the mid-1950’s.  The town of Millbrae is named for him and the land surrounding his vast estate was developed shortly after the fire.  The estate covered portions of both the cities of Millbrae and Burlingame and the area, and homes, were developed by multiple builders over about a 20 year period.  The Millbrae side of the Mills Estates sits just west of Mills High School and runs from El Camino Real up to 280.

The elementary school for the community is Spring Valley School on Murchison Drive and that street is the main street up the hill for the Millbrae side of the estates. The area primarily has single family homes, but you do find some condos and apartments but in the flat-lands near Mills High School and way up in the hills, just below 280 – where the views are amazing.

Right now, there are 9 houses for sale.  One of those houses is Bank Owned, too.

There were 2 sales within the past couple of weeks making it is an active market in the Millbrae side of the Mills Estates.  This community, like its sister side in Burlingame attracts professional seeking close proximity to SFO, easy commutes to San Francisco or the Valley and excellent schools.

We would be happy to show you any of the 9 active listings should you be interested in them.  Call us at 650-696-2820.
