Architect’s Home Transformation Just Steps From the Bay Trail
Extensively renovated inside and out by local architect and owner of Architecture Allure, Adam Bittle, this home has been thoughtfully transformed and expanded for modern livability with a contemporary design style throughout. The result is picture-perfect with an open-concept floor plan, adjoining outdoor “living room” complete with built-in ceiling heaters, plus 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 baths. Authentic custom-stained white oak hardwood floors unify every room, along with new windows and LED lighting. The open living and dining area is wired for media enjoyment and boasts a striking woven sphere light that adds modern panache. Four-panel French gliding glass doors open to the covered and heated deck, and the freshly updated kitchen connects to the room with breakfast/wine bar seating. Granite counters with full-height backsplashes plus stainless steel appliances stand ready for gourmet meal preparation.
The home’s 3 bedrooms are arranged in a separate wing comprising 2 family bedrooms served by a recently remodeled bath plus a luxurious master suite preceded by a customized office alcove. Bedroom closets are all customized with Elfa storage systems for luxurious functionality. Outside, eco-friendly high-end synthetic turf is also found, adding wonderful space for play. Perimeter gardens with tall trees for privacy, a patio with fire pit, plus a raised bed for vegetable gardening rounds out the enchanting rear yard. Adding to the appeal is Harborview Park just down the street along with access to the Bay Trail for miles of walking, jogging, and biking plus only one-half mile to Coyote Point Recreation Area with golf course, marina, picnic areas, and CuriOdyssey Science Playground and Zoo. Equally convenient are all the amenities of vibrant downtown San Mateo just over one mile away. Architectural style design, indoor/outdoor living, and a fabulous location – Welcome Home!
