The Modern Storybook

Walk to Burlingame's Famous Downtown

Every great house tells a story. The greatest are those that express history, lifestyle, location, and joie de vivre from the very first moment.  Less than a 15 minute stroll from downtown, this rare offering is such a home.

Dazzling new remodeling merges with architectural heritage to yield this “Modern Storybook.” Originally built in 1915, the design overflows with a quintessential San Francisco-style nostalgia complete with columned front porch, 9 foot coved ceilings, and elaborate woodwork. The current owners have just completed a showcase remodel of the kitchen, and many other premium custom upgrades.

Freshly refinished hardwood floors strike a rich espresso tone against crisp white moldings and modern grey walls. Lofty ceilings reflect the quality of construction and sense of space. The best gathering spaces always celebrate "line of sight," where rooms easily interact visually with each other. A grand living room with multiple seating destinations flows into the dining room and Houzz-savvy remodeled kitchen. Throughout the home, noteworthy details include elaborate Craftsman millwork, sculpturally contoured ceiling lines, and a purely open layout. Beyond the classic center hall and staircase, the kitchen is the heart of the home clad in the most in-demand luxuries of all-white cabinetry, Carrara marble countertops, and Italian chef's appliances. This oversized destination thrives as an indoor/outdoor great room combined with the family lounge, 4 island counter seats, and dining deck that soaks in morning sunlight. Keep the little ones close while holding court from the large center island!

The floorplan of approx. 2,000 sq. ft. celebrates interaction with the approx. 6,500 sq. ft. gated parcel. The master bedroom suite on the main level is complete with nostalgic fir wood flooring and 9 ft coved ceilings. Upstairs, two large bedrooms each could accommodate shared children's use as needed. Outside, this oversized parcel differentiates itself with its expansive feel and brilliant sunshine. Whether al fresco barbecues on the deck, sports on the lawn, or scooters on the huge gated driveway, many sunny diversions await. 722 Crossway preserves the integrity of tradition while expressing the spirit of the moment....the very essence of Burlingame itself. Welcome home.
