Picture-Perfect Remodel for Indoor/Outdoor Living in Sought-After Baywood
In San Mateo’s premier Baywood neighborhood, this extensively remodeled home presents classic and timeless appeal set behind a living wall and signature magnolia tree, providing exceptional privacy from the street. With roots dating back to 1947, the home is a picture of modern livability today with luxurious appointments inside and out. Refinished hardwood floors and crown moldings throughout along with plantation shutters on the street facing windows add refined elegance. The formal living room and formal dining room await entertaining on any scale, but it is surely the kitchen and family room combination that will be the home’s central gathering place. Separated by a wine/breakfast bar counter, this expansive sky-lit area opens to the rear yard where a covered and heated dining area offers al fresco enjoyment year-round, while a fire pit welcomes cool evenings under the stars.
The kitchen is a masterpiece of design with its rare granite slab counters plus contrasting white and dark cabinetry. Seating is found at both the peninsula counter and the island, offering wonderful spots for guests and family to join in with the chef. A towering cathedral skylight overhead fills the room with brilliant light along with the French door to the rear grounds. Adding contemporary flair, an entire wall of stainless steel integrates custom cabinetry, an oven, microwave, and the built-in refrigerator. Movie nights at home will also be enjoyed in the family room with its on-wall media and surround sound speakers.
The split-level design of the home includes 3 bedrooms on the upper level, one with en suite bath and two served by a hallway bath. The lower-most level of the home offers abundant flexibility with a central room ideal for a playroom or fitness center plus a large adjoining room with closet that could serve as a 4th bedroom or an ideal home office.
Outside, and in addition to the covered dining area and fire pit terrace, there is a vast stretch of eco-friendly synthetic lawn along with a sport court for play and recreation, all bordered by flowering gardens. Adding the finishing touch to this great home is its access to top-rated Baywood Elementary School and its minutes-away proximity to downtown amenities.
