Alongside the tree-lined streets of the beautiful and coveted, San Mateo Park neighborhood, this 1913 architectural masterpiece sits on a 19,170 sq ft lot that rests between winding walkways and exquisite gardens.
Lush, level grounds with vibrant garden vignettes surround this grand estate property. The profusion of foliage in this manicured landscaping was artfully crafted to serve as a rejuvenating extension of the estate’s original design. Stretching before the home’s strong, symmetrical facade, a picturesque courtyard with an exquisite French limestone fountain provides an upscale entrance to this remarkable residence rumored to have been designed by renowned architect, Julia Morgan.
The entryway, flanked by a formal dining room and living room, provides an initial glimpse of the home’s meticulously preserved original detailing. Intricate millwork, tall coved ceilings, paneled windows, and antique lighting effortlessly blend classical and craftsman design to establish a unique style throughout the home. Bright light and fresh air filter into the family room through two sets of French doors that lead out to the breathtaking backyard retreat. Lounge by the pool/spa complete with antique Verde waterline tile, gather around the stone firepit, or retreat to the spacious ADU for peaceful solitude.
Within the main house, you’ll find five bedrooms upstairs that wrap around the central staircase, a bright, eat-in kitchen equipped with high-end appliances, and an attached, 3-car garage accessible through the San Francisco Cobblestone driveway. The character and detail that define this home are truly unparalleled. Quality materials, oversized rooms, and an unbeatable location—mere blocks from Burlingame Ave—make this historical home a coveted San Mateo treasure.
