  • Spellbinding, four-season gardens are the hallmark of this fabulous 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom residence in the sought-after North Fair Oaks neighborhood
  • The 6,400 sqft lot sits adjacent to an approximate 4,000 sqft open yard owned by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC), buyer to verify usage restrictions and encroachment permits
  • Inside, classic features like 3 fireplaces and gorgeous hardwood floors with inlay mingle with modern upgrades, including stylish paint colors and Nest climate control, and the attached two-car garage offers a workbench and extensive storage shelving
  • Open living and dining areas allow versatile living and entertaining, while the flexibly designed family, breakfast, and kitchen spaces flow into the patio gardens for easy indoor-outdoor transitions
  • A hall bathroom and convenient laundry room join 3 well-appointed bedrooms upstairs, including a splendid master suite with a fireplace, spacious walk-in closet, luxury bath, and views of the gardens and mountains beyond
  • Beautiful mature trees line the property, underscoring its privacy, while a fountain, winding footpaths, arbors, and multiple patios make the grounds perfect for large-scale outdoor gatherings or low-key alfresco dinners
  • The bustling downtown areas of Redwood City, Menlo Park, and Redwood City are all nearby, and students can quickly reach the dynamic Synapse School and fine public schools, including Menlo-Atherton High (buyer to verify attendance)
  • Athletic facilities at SportsHouse and popular parks are within just moments, and the home easily accesses both Stanford University and Redwood City’s new Stanford campus, in addition to top tech companies like Facebook and Box
