An Architectural Jewel in Burlingame Park, Three Blocks to The Avenue
In a sidewalk-lined neighborhood of architectural jewels, this home stands out as a classic Tudor with all the grace and elegance preserved from its circa 1924 heritage. Built by renowned Burlingame architect John Norberg, the home was completely remodeled and expanded in 2007 while retaining its original charm. Steeply pitched, symmetrical roof lines, half-timbering, and a striking leaded-glass bay window are all hallmarks of this treasured architecture. A lush front lawn and gardens frame the home with its welcoming, slightly elevated front entrance. Newly painted, inside and out, fresh interior finishes abound including refinished hardwood floors and new light fixtures. The two-story floor plan is bright and light with a traditional appeal that begins at the entrance. A spacious formal living room plus a formal dining room stand ready for entertaining on a large scale. A window-lined alcove at the front expands the living room, a fireplace enhances the ambiance, and a French door opens to a wraparound deck for fresh air living.
The kitchen and family room combination is certain to be a central gathering place in the home. Freshly painted kitchen cabinetry is topped in granite slab, appliances are all stainless steel, and a breakfast bar peninsula is the perfect segue to the family room. Continue outside on the deck – the ideal spot for a barbecue, and a yard for play and gardening. The generous floor plan offers five bedrooms thoughtfully arranged with two on the main level plus three upstairs, including a primary suite with private balcony. There are three bathrooms, all well-appointed with tile and mosaic finishes, plus there is an upstairs room that is perfect for a playroom.
Located in Burlingame Park, one of the best neighborhoods in Burlingame, on the edge of Hillsborough, this home is just three blocks from all the great shops and restaurants on famed Burlingame Avenue making this a wonderful place to call home, midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley.
