A premier street in lower north Hillsborough is the setting for this architectural grande dame – freshly updated and ready to move in or awaiting a further transformation into your own dream vision. Distinguished by the refined grace and character that comes only through the passage of time, this magnificent home dates to 1938 on an elevated street that presents San Francisco Bay views from the upper level. Vintage appointments that recall its early heritage are on display at every turn combined with fresh paint inside and out plus updates in the kitchen and all bathrooms. Fine hardwood floors unify the entire home, and expansive windows and glass doors fill the spaces with abundant light.
The floor plan is ever so spacious spanning three levels with a traditional arrangement of 5 bedrooms upstairs plus a lower level with potential as an Accessory Dwelling Unit. Outside, old world glamour continues around the spacious pool and brick terrace along with a pool cabana with large spa and ample room for fitness or entertaining.
The entire setting is abundantly private on a level lot of nearly one-half acre, plus this home has access to excellent Hillsborough schools. Whether moving in and enjoying the home today, transforming for the future, or even building your perfect dream home, this is indeed a very special opportunity for yet another generation to come.

Details of the Home
In Hillsborough, large estates are the rule rather than the exception. The town is one of the wealthiest in the country and placed No. 18 on Forbes' 2014 list of the wealthiest U.S. ZIP codes (94010). Town ordinances ensure its exclusivity by enforcing a minimum house size of 2,500 square feet and a minimum lot size of a half-acre. Hillsborough’s population is greater than 11,000.
There are no apartments, condominiums, or townhouses in Hillsborough; Forbes calculates the median home price at $3,787,098. Notable residents past and present include entertainer Bing Crosby; publisher William Randolph Hearst; the king of Tonga, George Tupou V; diet guru Jenny Craig; and former Major League Baseball players J.T. Snow, Rickey Henderson, and Greg Maddux.
There are no commercial districts in Hillsborough. As a wealthy suburb of San Francisco, 17 miles to the north, life in the town is unhurried and quiet. The relaxed atmosphere is enhanced by tree-lined streets that don’t follow a grid pattern and instead wind around the hilly landscape. There are few traffic signals.
The town covers six square miles and is bounded by Burlingame to the north, San Mateo to the east and south, and Interstate 280 to the west.
