(ONE OF THE HIGHEST SOLD HOMES IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD)
Inspiring panoramic views from just about every room are a must see at this sophisticated and light-filled San Mateo Highlands home that borders open space.
The generous double lot spans over 1.2 acres in a coveted cul-de-sac. Enjoy ultimate privacy and outdoor space in addition to more than 1,240 square feet of Trex balconies and decks. Customize the amazing backyard with a detached guesthouse, art studio, or income-producing ADU. Envision lush foliage in a terraced garden, an orchard of fruit trees, a vineyard down the gentle slope or create quiet retreat space with pathways meandering over the oak-dotted natural terrain all privy to the awe-inspiring, east-facing views.
Meticulously maintained with attention to detail, the home features about 2,500 square feet of living space with four bedrooms and three remodeled bathrooms. Recent updates also include carpeting, interior designer paint colors, and refreshed landscaping.
The attractive contemporary design begins at a granite tiled foyer and a spacious entry into the living room that would make an ideal space for a gallery, reading nook, or even a wine/wet bar area.
The fabulous contemporary design and generous sized rooms are awash in natural light from the oversized picture windows, bands of clerestory, and sliders that frame the gorgeous views.
The living room features a vaulted ceiling, gallery lighting, and wood-burning/gas fireplace. Slide open the glass doors to one of several balconies for a bird’s-eye view of the distant mountains and surrounding natural landscape.
The adjacent formal dining room, designed to accommodate large gatherings, also has a Lutron lighting system, recessed lights and an oversized view window.
Beauty and function come together in the well-designed eat-in kitchen that offers stainless appliances and lots of prep space including a new elevated breakfast bar. Freshly painted cabinetry with sleek brushed nickel pulls and under cabinetry lighting offers lots of storage in addition to the new pantry with its custom pullout shelves and drawers and automatic lighting. An additional closet is ideal for more storage or a possible wine closet.
The garden window over the sink frames the picturesque view and allows natural light to illuminate the space. The adjacent casual dining area/family room also has its own sliding glass door access to another balcony.
Four bedrooms include a private master suite on its own level. A private balcony, and dual-controlled motorized skylights with rain sensors invite the natural light, and more access to the views. A walk-in closet and additional closet has custom built-ins and chic frosted glass paneled doors.
The all new master bath features tub-to-ceiling tiles in the tub/shower combination, a tree-top view window and a dual-sink vanity.
A junior suite has an updated en suite bathroom, remote controlled reading lights, and more stunning views from its private deck.
Two additional bedrooms have front-facing views and one is equipped with Lutron “Sunrise” lighting that ramps on and fades off. Tap on and off with a dimmer that has a memory to the most recent setting.
The cantilevered Trex decks were rebuilt in 2007 with moisture proofing and weather flashing on all deck joists. Attractive and durable, the Trex decks also feature stainless steel cable railing.
The finished two-car garage will delight a car enthusiast or hobbyist with its own attention to detail that includes bright LED lighting, an electrical sub panel and multiple power outlets including 220 outlets. Security has also been addressed with the installation of unbreakable Lexan/polycarbonate windows and back door.
