Privately tucked away in the desirable Burlingame Hills neighborhood, yet with close-in convenience, this captivating residence immediately unveils its charm upon entering. Presenting all the warmth and indoor/outdoor lifestyle of an early California hacienda, this home begins with a handsome wooden gate opening into a walled flagstone courtyard beneath a canopy of lush foliage. Here a true haven is created with visiting birds and a central water sculpture providing the soothing sounds of nature. Three graceful arches frame the covered front porch finished in red tile – another signature of the home’s architecture, and each sheltering French doors opening to the home. The home dates back to 1916 with thoughtful additions and beautiful updates over the years. Its first owner is deemed to be the founder of Schilling Spice Company who used the home as a summer residence on the Peninsula.

Today, refinished hardwood floors and freshly painted interiors create a warm ambiance. The main living room stands as a grand sanctuary, graced by a vaulted ceiling and a decorative fireplace newly finished with a sleek stucco mantelpiece in a cozy alcove designed with seating in mind. The formal dining room exudes sophistication with an entire wall of glass-front cabinetry and views to the front courtyard. Just beyond is the remodeled kitchen finished with custom wood cabinetry brightened by a towering skylight. A center island adds workspace and a peninsula counter with seating delineates the adjoining family room area that opens to the rear grounds.

This solar-powered home offers 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 baths. Two bedrooms, along with a hallway bath, are on the main level, plus there is a fully customized office ideal for remote work. The primary suite occupies the entire upper level, featuring French doors to an expansive sun terrace with privacy walls and serene wooded views. The en suite bath is stylishly remodeled with an open bathing area and walls of artfully arranged glass block. Additional amenities include a flexible-use lower-level room, perfect for an office, fitness area, or recreation space, as well as an oversized 1-car garage and ample off-street parking with electronically gated driveway.

This beautiful corner lot, spanning approximately one-third acre, is a natural paradise with majestic trees, including four redwoods and two oaks. A brick terrace with built-in charcoal barbecue and a deck provide inviting spaces for outdoor entertaining. Located on the edge of Easton Addition, this home also offers access to excellent Burlingame schools and is just one mile from Broadway, where shopping and dining await.

Burlingame Hills

Burlingame Hills’ often-overlooked secret— that it’s Burlingame’s greatest value at $1,195 per square foot — again made it the city’s second-most popular neighborhood in 2022 for the most number of sales (after Easton Addition), but like the rest of Burlingame, it suffered by comparison to 2021. 21 homes sold in Burlingame Hills last year, a decline of 38% from 2021 but still 61% increase over the 13 that sold in 2020. Average home values fell slightly, from $3.225 (a 22% increase from 2020) to $3.177 million, but there are enough indicators, like a 53% fall in average DOM from 2021 to 2022 to suggest that, despite the challenges posted by larger market conditions Burlingame Hills has gained a foothold among Burlingame buyers. 

The closest public elementary schools are Hoover Elementary. Nueva Elementary is nearby down the road on Skyline, and is a private elementary and middle school focusing on the arts for gifted and talented children.

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.
