1923 Jewel Box in the Park

Welcome to this lovely Country English Cottage in the Park! A single family home in San Mateo filled with Lush and verdant landscaping on either side of the pavered walkway gently welcomes you to  the front door landing.

The formal entry is accented by a crystal chandelier, an arched peek-a-boo window and a generous coat closet.  The window-lined livinglivingroom room sporting high coved ceilings and a marble faced gas fireplace create an inviting and restful atmosphere.

The breakfast room is drenched in light with an eastern-facing window diningroomand southern-facing glass doors that open to the private dining deck beyond.

The deck boards have recently been replaced and the perimeter banisters are painted in a contrasting clean, crisp white.


The kitchen has been updated with stainless appliances, granite counters, and newer Blond cabinetry yet retains its cottage charm with some of its original built in cupboards. An accessory service porch currently functions as the laundry, but could possibly be redesigned as a half bath.kitchen1_500

The rear bedroom features south and west-facing windows, crown molding, and original hardwood floors. The front bedroom currently serves as an office and offers western exposure and protected views of the street.


The central bathroom is tiled in soft green tones and provides a shower over bath combination, newer vanity with storage and extra storage closet for linens.


Between the free-standing single car garage and the home is a lovely brickpatio2_500 and stone patio surrounded with mature plantings and trees, offering a garden dining nook. A graveled pathway behind the house leads you to a private garden providing a quiet place to rest and pause between flowering Azaleas, Camellias, and layers of greenery.

This special home has been lovingly maintained, and the current owners are only the third since the home was built in 1923. Making this a bit of a historic gem in the peninsula! The home features hardwood floors throughout, period-correct  door hardware, and an abundance of charm. The home has been seismically bolted to the foundation.  The current owners have installed air conditioning and central forced air, replaced the roof, finished and insulated the garage and having lovingly restored the gardens. The home is centrally located on the edge of San Mateo Park and is situated equidistance from downtown Burlingame and downtown San Mateo. Property and Pest Inspection reports will be available.

Selling in the peninsula is sure to make this single family home a hot competitor.  Having a trusted realtor in San Mateo County is what will make this process a smooth one!
