This is a beautiful, recently remodeled three-bedroom home with a large, sunny backyard and outdoor dining and entertainment area. Located in San Mateo on the edge of Burlingame, this charming bungalow is perfect for your temporary housing needs whether you are on a business trip, visiting family, transitioning to a new home or job, or needing a vacation. It’s a ten-minute walk to downtown Burlingame for shopping and restaurants or to Cal Train to take you to SF or the Peninsula. You can also walk to Safeway and Starbucks - literally around the corner from the house! It’s only a five-minute drive to Highway 101 and ten minutes to the SF airport.
This home is loaded with extras, including a fireplace, air conditioning, central heating, washer/dryer, high speed internet, HDTV, DVD player and videos, and stocked kitchen with Wolf range and plenty of spices, oils and appliances. Nice, spacious, private back garden with all the amenities for dining alfresco! Stainless steel gas grill, outdoor dining table, lounging area, outdoor heaters plus outdoor ping pong table! Hand pick lemons year around for your grilled fish or lemonade.
There are 3 bedrooms, one with a deluxe Sleep Number queen bed and flat screen TV, plus large dresser, one with a cozy Dux queen bed that has a view of the backyard and one with two comfortable twin beds. The beds are freshly made with cozy designer linens and an abundance of towels, and hair products are available for your convenience. There is plenty of parking on the private driveway.
Location: Within walking distance to grocery stores, shopping, library, parks, churches, casual and fine dining. Easy access to San Francisco International Airport (10 minutes). Half hour drive to the Pacific coastal beaches, the sights of San Francisco, and the heart of Silicon Valley. Within 2 hours drive to Napa wine country, Monterey/Carmel.
The train tracks and train station are a few blocks away within walking distance. We do occasionally hear the conductor blow the train's horn, as they are required to sound it if they sense a problem on the tracks. But honestly, we work at home and the neighborhood is so quiet that mostly you hear the birds chirping or neighborhood kids playing before you notice the train horn. When our son first heard the train's horn, he said it reminded him of the fog horns in San Francisco, which he loves.
The train tracks extend from San Francisco through the whole Peninsula. One advantage of course is you can take the train to SF or through the Peninsula and avoid driving.
Accommodations: One master bedroom with a queen Sleep Number bed, two smaller bedrooms, one with a queen Dux bed and one with two twin beds. One full bath and shower. Indoor dining table fits six people. Outdoor dining and lounge area plus outdoor ping/pong table.
