Enchanting character, vintage roots, and a most welcoming entrance – it’s all here in the desirable Easton Addition neighborhood. Boasting numerous updates over the years, the home’s original architectural character, circa 1913, reigns supreme – from its all-redwood clapboard siding to the welcoming covered front porch sheltered by a partial wall of true divided light windows beneath a shiplap-paneled ceiling. All around, beautiful gardens with colorful hydrangeas and roses are a fitting complement to the home’s vintage appeal. Steeped in history, one of the first owners of the home is deemed to be Frederick Zech, a renowned composer who taught piano to American landscape photographer Ansel Adams and whose collection of work is archived at UC Berkeley. All the cobblestones around the yard and the pathway on the front side of the yard are from the San Francisco Embarcadero that were laid in the 1800s. They were originally used for ballast on the schooner ships from Europe, that brought immigrants to the gold mines of California.
An intricately carved front door opens to a traditional foyer introducing details that continue throughout most rooms, including fine hardwood floors, dropped crown moldings, and classic wooden window shutters. The formal living and dining rooms each have focal-point fireplaces with dentil detail mantelpiece and built-in cabinetry, including leaded glass fronts to showcase china and glassware. Beyond the formal rooms, the remodeled all-white kitchen, with Carrara marble-style quartz counters blends in seamlessly with the home’s character right down to built-in banquette seating for casual dining. Everyday living easily unfolds in the adjoining open family room, plus there is wonderful space on the lower level for a home office, playroom, or fitness center complete with full bath. Three bedrooms and two additional baths, including the primary suite with luxe Carrara marble bath, are located on the main level.
Outside, a spacious and private yard invites entertaining, gardening, and recreation amid lawn, a large slate flagstone patio, and beautiful perimeter gardens. A separately fenced side yard offers a wonderful space for a dog run and a detached 2-car garage adds wonderful convenience. Timeless details, numerous updates, and an unbeatable location - just a two-minute walk to the library and Broadway shops and restaurants – an ideal home for Peninsula living for yet another generation to come.

Excellent Burlingame schools: Lincoln Elementary, Burlingame Intermediate, and Burlingame High (buyer to verify)
Easton Addition accounted for 25% of all Burlingame home sales in 2022 (30% in 2021) while posting the city’s second-highest average and median home values ($3.51 and $3.4 million, notably up 6% from 2021). As Burlingame goes, though, so goes Easton Addition, and the city’s overall drop in real estate activity was reflected in its most popular neighborhood where overall sales fell 35% after increasing by 18% in 2021. That Easton Addition real estate actually gained value while most other neighborhoods lost value is a tribute to its enduring desirability, as is the fact that during a down year $5 million-plus homes increased their neighborhood market share from 1.5% to 9%. Since 2018, property values in Easton Addition have increased by 25%.

All addresses in Burlingame go to Burlingame High School (In 2003, the district lines were redrawn to incorporate this change).

Burlingame shares a common history with neighbors San Mateo, Millbrae and Hillsborough, but only up to a point. Like the surrounding communities, Burlingame was once the site of native Costanoan villages and then part of a Mexican land grant (Rancho Buri Buri to the north and Rancho San Mateo to the south). Burlingame’s history diverges from that of nearby Peninsula cities in the late 1800s, when Francis Newlands, son-in-law of landowner and Nevada Senator William Sharon, came up with a plan to turn this stretch of real estate into a playground for San Francisco’s wealthiest residents.
