Located on a beautiful, enchanting cul-de-sac lot of just over one acre, this splendid estate property presents classic Old World styling – yet was built only a decade ago. With an eye toward creating authentic European grandeur, the interior design masterfully balances the home’s grand dimensions with fine craftsmanship reminiscent of an earlier era and all the amenities needed for consummate modern comfort. Hand-hewn ceiling beams, finely finished oak and natural limestone floors, and plaster-finished walls replicating those that are centuries old add to the allure at every turn. Defining the stylishly chic ambiance are such luxuries as sound speakers in every room, perfectly selected lighting fixtures, mantelpieces of reclaimed French limestone, and Sun Valley Bronze hardware that is as beautiful as it is functional. Spanning three levels of sumptuous living, the home’s grand public rooms are complemented by a handsome library, versatile recreation/study room, and a lower-level professional home theatre for the full media experience. A fully customized wine cellar, two steam showers and a sauna, plus a heated loggia are a sample of the fine appointments that cater to this life of luxury. The home’s personal accommodations are comprised of a main-level guest suite plus four upstairs suites including an eminently inviting master retreat. Equally impressive are the resort-inspired grounds, which include a pool and spa just beyond the loggia, a sport court, stretches of level lawn, and a putting green for the golf enthusiast. All around, gardens are manicured to perfection and ready to spring forth in full color and fragrance with a variety of fruit and citrus trees. Adding to the appeal of this exceptional property in sought-after lower Hillsborough is its convenient access to top-rated schools plus close proximity to both downtown Burlingame and San Mateo for fine shopping and dining.
