Perfection in The Park

An ideal location, spacious floor plan, and exquisite detailing describe this stunning property in San Mateo Park that has it all: classic architecture and gracious lines, large entertaining and family spaces, and top-notch renovation.

A large front motor court under mature redwoods leads to the two-story formal entry. On either side are the formal living room with fireplace and substantial dining room. French doors lead to a paneled study with direct access to a large, private patio with fire pit, play structure, and lawn. A hall from the study to the kitchen has a discreet but convenient powder and main access to the patio. The kitchen is designed for family comfort and casual entertaining at their best. Solid-wood cabinetry, beautiful granite, and best-brand appliances like Viking, SubZero, Gaggenau, and Bosch, as well as an oversized island with prep sink and extra-long counter spaces with ample bar stool seating ensure a quality experience. The eat-in kitchen also has access to the rear yard, and a substantial sitting area and soaring ceiling with skylights enhance the great room feel. A service hall from the kitchen to the garage has en-suite guest/au pair quarters and a mud/laundry room with separate outside access. Extra-height ceilings throughout, wainscoting, custom lighting, hardwood, and crown moldings speak to the pervasive craftsmanship.

The second floor has a generous landing, perfect for an intimate seating and study area. Three family bedrooms, one en-suite and one with private access to a hall bath are balanced by the gracious master with beamed ceiling, balcony overlooking the garden, walk-in closet, and marble bathroom with glass shower, Jacuzzi, double sinks, and separate lavatory.

About Millbrae

Located west of San Francisco International Airport, Millbrae boasts rolling hills, highly ranked schools, a vibrant downtown shopping and dining district, and superb access to public transit and freeways.

In the 1860s, like many wealthy Northern Californians, Darius Ogden Mills built an estate on the Peninsula. He called the property Millbrae after his own name and the Lowland Scots word “brae” for the slope of a hill. The estate home burned in 1954, but the historic Sixteen Mile House, originally a rest stop built in 1872, was restored and is now a popular restaurant.

Only 15 miles south of downtown San Francisco, the city has its own Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) and Caltrain stations and is bordered by Highway 101 and Interstate 280, making Millbrae a perfect location for commuters. Despite these urban amenities, Millbrae has a peaceful suburban feel and is home to 12 parks and the Green Hills Country Club, which is a green belt for local fauna like the red-tail fox.
