I currently live in Berkeley and commute to San Mateo for work. My drive is about an hour each way. I'd like to relocate closer to work, preferably within San Mateo but I'm open to Burlingame and Belmont.

Within these area's I'd prefer an older neihborhood. I currently live in the Claremont district, which has many homes built in the 1920's. Are there any older neighborhoods in San Mateo, Burlingame, Belmont?

I'll be renting.

Thanks

Check out the area north of downtown San Mateo, between downtown SM and Burlingame. Neighbood has lots of 1920's bungalows and Craftsmen homes with newer (small) apartments here and there.

Belmont really doesn't have any older neighborhoods. Most everything is post World War II homes. Belmont doesn't really have a downtown. There's a retail area near El Camino and another one about a mile west at Ralston and Alameda de las Pulgas. Most apartments in Belmont are concentrated along Alameda d. l. Pulgas between Ralston and Carlmont High School to the south. Nice retail area nearby with a supermarket, etc. as well as a park and library.

I'd say the area just -south- of downtown SanMateo ... approximately bounded by 9th Ave to the north, El Camino to the West, and the train tracks to the east. Lots of craftsman and cute old bungalows and Spanish-style homes. Belmont, not so much.

You might think that. And you'd be wrong. There are many homes from the 20s and 30s in Belmont. The only areas where there are post war "subdivisions" - in the sense of areas where homes were all developed at the same time - are the flats, one small area near Carlmont, and the areas developed during the 60s and 70s near 280 up on the highest ridge.

Beyond that, everything has been developed parcel by parcel. So on any given street, there may be things ranging from 1910 to present.

Y'know, Zillow will give you the ability to search by Year-Built so have at it.
