Grand Sylvan Cottage; 1.83 Acre Estate

Welcome to this stunning forested retreat nestled in an exclusive pastoral Hillsborough neighborhood steps from Burlingame Country Club yet close to the lively downtown. Enveloped by mature redwoods, the gated home portrays a bucolic atmosphere with a massive back porch that takes in the surroundings. Generous living spaces boast French doors throughout, cultivating a tremendous indoor/outdoor experience. 

The home’s striking rounded roofline has eye-catching curves that invite guests into the stately vaulted foyer entry with skylights and a custom stone floor. Herringbone wood floors curve around the vaulted formal living room, echoing the roof’s unique semi-circular design. A bank of doors and windows overlooking the front grounds lights the room’s bright interior. 

Beamed, vaulted ceilings top the chef’s kitchen, a wonderfully luxurious spot to whip up feasts on the Wolf range. Brass railings ring the vast countertops, including the oversized eat-in island with prep sink. Picture cabinets show off china finery while the 48” Sub-Zero refrigerator stores fresh ingredients. A sweet breakfast nook with a bay view of the backyard is perfect for coffee on cold mornings. The neighboring formal dining room impresses with an elegant coffered ceiling and wainscoting.

Make the gracious study your home office with a wall of built-in lighted oak shelves, a fireplace and French doors to the wrap-around back patio beyond which a tranquil thicket of redwoods inspires calm. Amateur gardeners will adore the raised planter beds and the sunlit potting room off of the entry. Along the front of the secluded home, a splendidly landscaped sunken patio with built-in Viking barbeque, ice machine, sink and fridge encourages lounging, as does the sizable pool and hot tub nearby. 

The ensuite bedrooms are located in the home’s East wing, presenting an ideal floorplan. Guest bedrooms boast external doors to the property’s grounds as well as large closets, full bathrooms and lush carpeting. At the end of the hall, the broad Primary Suite wows with a fireplace, tray ceiling, double walk-in closets and double French doors to the back patio. Soak into the Primary Bath’s jet tub under a large skylight or shower beneath double showerheads. A separate toilet/bidet room and double vanities add to the creature comforts. Incredible closet space is a hallmark of the home, where alongside the bedrooms sit a multitude of coat and linen closets. 

Downstairs, open the fitness room’s double doors to enjoy fresh breezes from the verdant backyard. A deluxe laundry room with sink and storage sits close to the au pair ensuite which enjoys private access via a door to the backyard’s winding gravel paths.

Custom finishings, thoughtful design and an optimal layout make this captivating home a tremendous find of the highest caliber.
