Prepare to be surprised! This property is a jewel, from the minute you start your tour at the inviting entry, to the ‘Oh wow!’ the moment you discover the backyard oasis--this home doesn’t disappoint. Freshly painted inside and out, with new wide plank French oak floors in the main living spaces–this home is ready for you to create your personal space. The 5 bedroom plan provides flexible and surprising ‘work-from-home' options.
A graceful entry opens to the Living Room with deep crown molding, a fireplace with gas starter, and wood mantle, flanked by display shelving. The space flows through French doors into an equally impressive dining room. Your eye is drawn through the dining room to a Bay window that looks out to the backyard and pool. The kitchen is the heart of this home. Impressive finishes include soft grey lined marble counters matched by beadboard backsplash and lots of custom white cabinetry. Pot drawers, soft close, spice racks, organizers, desk area, reveal the careful thought that went into the efficient design of this large space. Chef quality appliances include large and small Wolf ovens and a 6 burner + griddle stovetop, with a convenient pot-filler faucet. A cabinet front SubZero refrigerator and a Wolf wall oven and microwave provide extra tools. A large island has extra seating, and an adjacent dining alcove is wired for a flat-screen TV –you can watch the news, oversee homework, or watch your favorite cooking show and still get dinner ready. A door to the yard facilitates snack runs and grilling supplies. Completing the main level is a comfortable family room with access to a shaded patio and the pool. An alcove is wired for a flat-screen TV. A half bath is located off the foyer.
A sky-lit stairwell leads to the upper level where you will find 5 bedrooms (plenty of flexibility for an office or study room). The owner’s suite has a soaring ceiling, a beautifully appointed private bath, and access to a large back deck. There are customized closets but tucked behind a pocket door you’ll discover a BONUS ROOM for office/crafts/storage or maybe all three. 4 bedrooms and a full bath complete the upper level. One of the back bedrooms has a built-in desk and access to the large back deck, perfect for a dual-purpose guest room/office. Another family bedroom has a ‘secret’ space for kids to explore or room to store.
The grounds are amazing. A pool, a basketball hoop, a waterfall, a pond-complete with turtles, a firepit, fruit trees, a chicken coop, a playhouse… an enclosed (or slide the glass pocket doors to open) and you have a fully equipped kitchenette complete with beer tap, plus an outdoor bar with large BBQ, seating area for guests and oh yeah, a pizza oven. Welcome home.
Located 15 miles from downtown San Francisco, Burlingame is a populous suburb with a thriving commercial base of its own. The city stretches from San Francisco Bay to the east, Interstate 280 to the west, Millbrae to the north, and Hillsborough and San Mateo to the south.
Burlingame calls itself the City of Trees and counts 18,000 trees on public land and right-of-ways -- including several large stands of eucalyptus.
The Broadway and Burlingame Avenue corridors are popular shopping districts, but the city has commercial interests as well. Industrial growth in Burlingame was spurred in the 1960s and ’70s by its proximity to San Francisco International Airport, and the city is home to Virgin America airlines and related service industries.
Landmarks in Burlingame include the distinctive Caltrain station at Burlingame Avenue and California Drive, built in 1894 in the Mission Revival style. Nearby is Washington Park, which covers 19 acres and includes tennis courts, baseball fields, a basketball court, a picnic area, a playground, and plenty of green space. A more obscure landmark is the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia on California Drive.
