An architectural jewel in San Mateo Park, this home combines the grandeur and elegance of its circa 1907 roots with luxurious renovations and amazing resort-inspired outdoor amenities – a rare accomplishment in this most sought-after neighborhood. Enveloped in privacy, beyond dual gated entrances and stately Canary palms, the home’s historic beauty takes center stage with its steeply pitched roofline and dormer windows, rear turret, and porte cochere opening to the rear grounds. Of-the-era detail abounds with intricately carved friezes in two rooms, a restored mural in the parlor, vintage lighting, and original leaded-and-stained-glass windows. Showcasing au courant amenities is the remodeled gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances and tremendous adjoining family room that doubles as a media center with surround sound. 

There are five spacious bedrooms upstairs thoughtfully arranged in pairs, each adjoining a shared remodeled bath, plus the primary suite with its luxuriously remodeled bath complete with heated floors, free-standing tub, and shower for two. Adding to the accommodations is a detached bonus guest house with all modern styling, including a kitchenette and bath.

The amenities that continue outside, on over one-third acre, make this home truly unique. Here, a pool and spa, fire pit, plus lounge with full bar, fireplace, and media combine for the ultimate “staycation” retreat, a reminder that home has never been more important. With that, plus ample space for work-from-home and distance learning, this is indeed a very special opportunity for today’s lifestyle – and the future.
