Burlingame, a city in San Mateo County, between San Francisco and Palo Alto, has a population of about 28,000 and a median home sale price of $1.95 million. This Arts and Crafts house is in Burlingame Park, a historic neighborhood a few blocks from the center of one of the city’s two retail districts. There, you’ll find restaurants, boutiques, the Copenhagen Bakery and an Apple store.
Size: 2,180 square feet
Price per square foot: $1,329
Indoors: The single-level house was renovated by a previous owner and includes a recently upgraded kitchen and bathrooms. (The current owner bought the property less than six years ago.)
A central foyer with oak floors and a vintage brass pendant light opens, though windowed pocket doors, into a living room with extensive millwork and built-ins. The wood-burning brick fireplace is flanked by square, glass-fronted bookshelves, each with an adjacent window seat. The large dining room, entered from the foyer through a second set of pocket doors, has another wall of Mission-style cabinetry.
The kitchen includes white wood cabinets with marble countertops, a white bead-board wainscot and a butcher-block work area with seating placed against a wall, to make efficient use of the narrow space. The gas range is Thermador, the dishwasher Bosch and the refrigerator Sub-Zero.
Off the dining room is an office with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a built-in corner desk and upper cabinets.
A windowed door with milk-glass panes opens to the large master suite. The master bathroom was finished with marble surfaces, a roomy tub with an integrated shower and a toilet closet. Two guest bedrooms share a bathroom faced in white subway tile, with a combined tub and shower. There is also a powder room.
A pocket door in the kitchen offers access to a carpeted, finished basement with recessed and natural light.
Outdoor space: The house occupies a corner lot with lawns and hedges and is wrapped by a white picket fence. The front door is tucked under the roof of an elevated front porch. French doors in the kitchen open to a large rear deck. Parking is in a detached one-car garage and an off-street paved area with an electric vehicle charger.
Taxes: $31,878 (estimated)
