This sophisticated Victorian has roots dating back to 1910 and a distinguished history as the Russell Bede private school from 1984 to 2014, founded by Helen Myers. Since then, this grand dame has been renovated to include a gourmet kitchen, beautiful bathrooms, and most recently the addition of gorgeous hardwood floors. The covered porch entrance stands as a tribute to the Victorian era with Doric columns and carved balustrade railings. Inside, the accolades continue with original details like dropped crown moldings and wainscot paneling, complemented by the newer additions of subway-set tile and Carrara marble that honor the home’s early heritage. 

Spanning two levels, the main floor comprises a grand living room and formal dining room, each with fireplace, a chef’s kitchen, plus a bedroom suite, and half-bath. Upstairs, there is a laundry room, master bedroom suite with fully renovated bath, plus two very large bedrooms and a full bath. A separate Accessory Dwelling Unit (permits to be verified) includes a kitchenette and full bath plus there is a 2-car detached garage and significant off-street parking. Adding the finishing touch is the home’s premier location less than one mile from vibrant downtown San Mateo.
