Craftsman Heritage Updated for Luxury Living
This classic 1915 Craftsman has been transformed into a chic and stylish home while preserving the architectural character of its past. Tall flowering foliage frames the elevated and covered front porch, which overlooks the sidewalk-lined streets of this enchanting neighborhood. Inside, rich wood details abound with extensive millwork, coffered ceiling details, and wainscot paneling – all tied together with espresso-hued hardwood floors throughout. Built-in leaded glass-front cabinetry from the bygone era provides functionality today with integrated space for media while modern lighting selections also honor the home’s heritage.
The showstopper of the home is the newly remodeled kitchen – a masterpiece of design with Carrara marble-style quartz counters, breakfast/wine bar seating, plus a display of encaustic tiles that add a contemporary designer element befitting the original Craftsman style. A collection of high-end appliances stands ready for any chef, wraparound open shelves are perfect for cookbooks or china display, and built-in wine storage adds a finishing touch. Beyond the kitchen, and concealed by a pocket door, the remodel continues into a customized mudroom and dedicated office space with extensive built-ins and abundant natural light.
The home’s personal accommodations comprise 3 bedrooms and 2 baths highlighted by the master suite with private rear porch and sky-lit travertine bath with large frameless-glass shower. The newly remodeled second bath is beautifully appointed complete with heated towel bars for a sumptuous touch. Behind the scenes, luxurious modern amenities are many, including motorized window treatments, Nest thermostat, video front door and surveillance, plus distributed speakers and surround sound. Bringing the home fully into the 21st century are eco-friendly features that include solar panels for electricity, tankless water heater, and high-quality synthetic lawn in the private rear yard.
Located just 4 blocks from famed Burlingame Avenue for upscale shopping and dining, this home is equally convenient to tech centers in San Francisco or Silicon Valley making it the ideal home for Peninsula living.
