Majestically perched on a beautifully landscaped lot, this 1930 Santa Barbara-style Mediterranean exemplifies the best of architectural integrity and California lifestyle. With five bedrooms and four and one half baths, including a first-floor maid’s quarters, formal living and dining rooms, library, and large entertaining sunroom with an additional powder room, this home has ample space and boundless Old World charm. Smooth, solid plaster walls, hardwood floors, exposed beams, leaded-glass windows, original hardware, and six fireplaces are just some of the significant features that recall the quality of an earlier era. The large, eat-in kitchen has all the right ingredients for today’s cook: high-end appliances, including a new range, Sub-Zero refrigerator marble countertops, pantry closet, and generous cabinet space.

Bay views abound, especially from the master bedroom and upper-floor terrace and balcony, and the oversized main-level terrace. Fresh pavers and hardscape throughout the exterior, mosaic-style tile accents, pedestrian porte chochere, large motor court, a serene fountain, planting beds, and an edible-grape vineyard highlight the newly landscaped, level property.

Located on a prime street in lower Central Hillsborough, close to the town’s renowned, award-winning schools, commuter routes and public transportation, and the chic shopping and famed dining of downtown Burlingame, this home has the location and amenities for professional and family living, yet feels like a retreat to a time of culture and ambiance.
