Craftsman Heritage Remodeled for Luxury Living
This classic 1925 Craftsman has been transformed into a chic and stylish home while preserving the architectural character of its past. An extra-large covered front porch introduces the home, overlooking a deep front yard with new fence and gated driveway for added privacy from the street. Inside, the open floor plan offers a wonderful flow that extends out to the private rear yard, perfect for contemporary living. Espresso-hued hardwood floors, tall wainscot paneling in the dining room plus original china cabinetry pay homage to the home’s early heritage. A large living room with fireplace offers wonderful space for entertaining as well as everyday living with its media wiring overhead. True-divided-light French doors open to the formal dining area, which now seamlessly connects to the gourmet kitchen.
The all-white palette in the kitchen, with its custom Shaker-style cabinetry and quartz counters, has a subtle hint of color on the backsplash designed in a robin’s egg blue glass tile artfully placed in a vertical herringbone pattern that extends to the ceiling. Stainless steel appliances include a gas range, and a peninsula counter offers breakfast and wine bar seating. Adjoining the kitchen is a custom mud/laundry room with lots of cabinetry and clear-glass French door to the rear yard.
The home’s 2 bedrooms, light-filled office, and remodeled bathroom are located in a separate wing. These rooms are carpeted and the office has French doors to the rear yard, a private entrance that makes it perfect for today’s work-from-home needs. Outside, the private rear yard offers ample space for play and entertaining with lawn, patio, and long paver stone driveway. The detached garage is finished in epoxy and is hard-wired for internet with EV charging as well. Behind the scenes, the remodeling since 2018 includes new windows, electrical and plumbing upgrades, and even new attic storage in the garage.
Located just 6 blocks from Central Park and one mile from downtown San Mateo with vibrant restaurants and boutique shops, this home is convenient to San Francisco or Silicon Valley making it the ideal place for Peninsula living.
