Remodeled and Expanded 5-Star Jewel
Combining the best of classic early architecture with luxuriously renovated and expanded interiors, this home is a five-star jewel in sought-after Burlingame Terrace. Leafy foliage on the sidewalk-lined street frames the picture-perfect entrance where drought-tolerant gardens introduce the circa 1915 design that has beautifully withstood the test of time. A peaked portico and dormer windows along with contrasting trim against the crisp white clapboard siding present a cottage style that seamlessly blends into this wonderful neighborhood.
Richly hued hardwood floors begin in the foyer and extend throughout the main level. Some ceilings feature original coves and almost all have crown moldings. Craftsman-style millwork is found above doorways and vertical moldings define wainscot in the foyer. The formal living room and formal dining room are well appointed with ample space for entertaining on a large scale. A separate seating area at the front includes wall-to-wall banquette seating and a fireplace enhances the ambiance. At the center of the home, a dazzling all-white chef’s kitchen unfolds with Calacatta marble counters, including a waterfall-wrapped island, plus high-end stainless steel appliances and a separate spot for casual dining. Just off the kitchen, and perfect for today’s needs, is a family room plus a large office or possible fitness center or playroom. Completing the main level is a bedroom with en suite bath plus a convenient half-bath.
There are four additional bedrooms and two beautiful upstairs baths, added new in the remodel, including a primary suite with ceiling rainspout shower. Modern dual-sink vanities, automated commodes, and designer tile selections highlight each bath, while Elfa organizers add functional convenience to the closets. Completing the appeal of this home is the private rear yard with gated driveway and lots of space for play and entertaining.
Convenience is a way of life from this location just over one-half mile from either Broadway or Burlingame Avenue, putting shops and restaurants within strolling distance. With a premier location, exceptional space, plus access to excellent Burlingame schools, this home is an outstanding choice for Peninsula living!
