Mid-Century Modern in the Burlingame Hills

A true classic, surrounded by other distinctive, upscale properties on a very private Burlingame Hills lane, this home’s U-shaped design surrounds a lush garden courtyard and patio with multiple access points and perfectly represents the vision of indoor-outdoor living.

Everything about the house feels light and open, yet lush and green, thanks to wrap-around views of the garden. Great flow starts with a large fireplaced living-dining room combination off the entry, leading to a beautifully updated eat-in kitchen with maple cabinetry, distinctive granite, Miele, Viking, and SubZero appliances, a large island with prep sink and bar seating, and loads of multi-purpose storage cabinets. The kitchen opens to the family room with fireplace, soaring ceiling, and access to a second patio and secret play area with whimsical tree house. The outside is a peaceful retreat of mature specimen plantings, including fruit trees, roses, olives, evergreens, and live oaks. A discreet potting area makes for a gardener’s sanctuary.

Each wing is anchored by an en-suite master opening to the inner garden; one side has two additional family bedrooms sharing a connecting bath. The facing wing has a large flexible-use space: study, home gym, additional entertaining, or project room and leads to the second en-suite master, garage and laundry. All bathrooms, including a powder off the entry, are tastefully renovated with top-quality tile and fixtures. Hardwood, finish details, and lighting throughout are thoughtfully consistent with the modern esthetic.
