Located in San Mateo’s most prestigious neighborhood, San Mateo Park, this circa 1909 Craftsman presents time-honored architecture on just over one-half acre. Just beyond the circular driveway and welcoming covered front porch, the home is filled with intrinsic charm combined with fresh finishes of carefully selected paint colors inside and out plus refreshed bathrooms. Classic moldings, tall wainscot paneling, and of-the-era lighting recall the home’s early heritage of traditional elegance. The expansive formal rooms are delightfully balanced by a sunroom, an updated and spacious eat-in kitchen, plus 6 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and several rooms that could be used for play, study, or hobbies. Outside, a pool and spa are bordered by a redwood grove and gazebo in a very private setting. Completing the property is a detached garage with workshop plus a large Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) with living room, full kitchen, bedroom, and bath.
With a premier location midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley, plus the options to enjoy today, renovate, or possibly build new, this is indeed a very special opportunity for yet another generation to come.

Details of the Home
One of the largest cities on the San Francisco Peninsula, San Mateo boasts many options for recreation as well as a revitalized downtown, with a large movie theater, restaurants, and bars. Spanish explorers first came to present-day San Mateo on a 1776 scouting trip and named the creek they slept beside San Mateo Creek. In 1863, the railroad arrived in San Mateo, leading some wealthy San Franciscans to build summer and weekend homes in the area. Today, approximately 100,000 people call the city home. The median household income is $88,000, and the median home value is $722,000 according to 2013 United States Census Bureau data. Of San Mateo’s 40,014 housing units, 54 percent are owner occupied. The city is home to the Hillsdale Shopping Center and a number of parks -- including Central Park and the Coyote Point Recreation Area. The CuriOdyssey museum at Coyote Point offers science and wildlife exhibits for children and adults, some of which feature live animals. For a breathtakingly beautiful jog, hike, or bicycling outing, locals head to the Sawyer Camp Trail at the Crystal Springs Reservoir.
