1866 San Carlos Avenue, San Carlos

Spectacular custom renovation offers 3 bedrooms + office/4th bedroom option

Renovated and expanded from the ground up, this home boasts a chic designer aesthetic that maximizes its privacy and use of the level rear grounds for outdoor living. The open concept floor plan begins with hewn walnut floors that contrast beautifully with crisp white moldings and the stunning all-white chef’s kitchen. A remote-controlled fireplace adds instant ambiance and built-in cabinetry introduces the level of custom craftsmanship found around every corner. Media is cleverly concealed by retractable artwork, Murphy bunk beds on the lower level are recessed out of sight into custom cabinetry, and laundry plus storage is all seamlessly tucked away behind custom doors. Maximization of space combined with functionality and designer style is at the heart of this renovation.   


The brilliance of the design lies in the flow of the personal accommodations beginning with two bedrooms, an office with French doors to the backyard, and a spa-like bathroom with steam shower, Ann Sacks heated tile floors, a Toto bidet toiletwith heated seat, and an operable skylight on the main level. Downstairs, a sumptuous master suite opens to a patio and has a designer bath with clawfoot slipper tub surrounded in walls of Ann Sacks tiles, including heated floors. Adding to the accommodations is plenty of room for additional office needs, family room, and/or play. Outside, the extra-deep rear yard is meant for entertaining and a separately fenced lawn with swings is ready for fun. With access to sought-after San Carlos schools and just blocks to vibrant Laurel Street and Caltrain, this is an excellent place to call home midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley!
