Majestic sycamores and Japanese maples encircle this updated 3 bedroom, 2 bath ranch situated on huge 9,900 sq. ft. lot and located on a wide, tree-lined street in San Mateo’s Baywood–Aragon neighborhood. A winding brick path leads to the covered porch and new front door, welcoming guests to a home that hugs its park-like backyard from all sides. The front kitchen abounds in updates, from new stainless appliances to sparkling quartz countertops and abundant refinished cabinetry. Seasoned chefs will delight in the endless countertops and cabinets, leading straight to a bright formal living room. Open the glider door to the backyard while guests enjoy their meals and then retire to the formal living room with wet bar and wood-burning fireplace. Or dine al fresco on the spacious backyard’s patio bordering the large stretch of lawn ringed by fruit trees, hydrangea, roses and a grape-covered wood pergola. Opening onto the yard, a bonus room, perfect for a playroom or den, is bathed in natural light. The Master Suite, which also accesses the backyard, boasts plenty of room for clothes in its wall of built-in closets. Two guest bedrooms down the hall share a bathroom with shower-over tub as well as two floor-to-ceiling linen cabinets. A laundry room adjoining the kitchen features even more storage, as well as a half bath. The two-car garage, accessible via the kitchen, contains a side room with a custom workbench perfect for a master builder. Downtown San Mateo, a quick jaunt away, offers diverse cuisine options as well as Philz Coffee, Draeger’s Market, and Century 12 theaters. Find peace at Central Park in its Japanese Gardens or exercise at the tennis courts. Check out CSM’s farmer’s market on Wednesday nights for fresh produce and ready-to-eat food. Local top schools are only a couple blocks away. Commutes are smooth via I-280 or Highway 101, or choose Caltrain to get to your Bay Area destination. With ideal weather and location, this Mid-Peninsula home makes indoor-outdoor living come alive.
