Form and function meld seamlessly together in this three-bedroom updated and expanded home. Located in Central Belmont, this idyllic location is known for its gentle topography and warmer micro-climate. Once host to the Belle Monti Country Club, this rare enclave of quaint post WWII homes is adorned with historical registry and Tudor style estates which once surrounded the nine-hole golf course in 1926.
This unique area offers level streets with sidewalks for evening visits to the Carlmont Shopping Center and restaurants, which are 1/8th of a mile away, and can be reached by foot in less than three minutes. This is the hub of activity in Belmont, and is host to a variety of retailers and restaurants including international dining spots, Coyote’s Mexican Cafe, Gin-Mon and Sushi Ku, as well as popular gathering spots, such as Village Host Pizza, Starbucks, Doc’s Bagels, Vivace, and now Waterdog Tavern, which includes pet friendly outdoor dining by the creek. Many handy stores include ACE Hardware, Lunardi’s Gourmet grocery store, Bank of America and Ladera Nursery.
Like most of the homes in this area, originally this too had two bedrooms and one full bath. It was later expanded to include an additional owner’s en suite, full remodeled bath, and an enlarged and remodeled kitchen—designed and built by the owner of Gaia kitchens of Belmont.
The extraordinary kitchen features a plethora of fine appointments. Brilliant white raised panel cabinetry features pull-out drawers including a full pantry, glass fronts and backlit cabinets. Modern appliances include built-in Subzero® refrigerator, WOLF® series six burner high BTU stove with semi-professional stainless hood and wall mounted water pot filler, along with a combination WOLF® microwave/convection oven, and warming drawer. Completing the appointments is a Swedish ASAKO® silent style dishwasher and farmhouse sink. The stepped center island is clad in rich tones with bronze pulls and capped with intriguing granite counters. Voluminous vaulted ceilings and illuminating skylights make this room the centerpiece of the home.
The living room offers a wood burning fireplace flanked by a carved wooden period mantle and two bronze wall sconces, as well as recessed LED lighting. Rich Oak flooring abounds throughout most of the home, and leads us to the two original bedrooms, and remodeled bath.
Up a short hallway is the Owner’s en suit addition, including its own wood burning fireplace, soaring rustic open-beamed ceilings and French Doors which lead to the private yard. Two closets—one a full walk-in, are nearby the large Owner’s bath which enjoys high ceiling, skylights and tiled modern shower enclosure.
The rear yard and patio are access from the living room or kitchen, and offers a raised deck for evening get together, and a terraced grass play area.
This picturesque location is also popular because of the close proximity to major travel arteries—Highway 101, 280; and Caltrain. San Francisco International Airport is conveniently nearby. Belmont is ideally located on the Peninsula between San Francisco and the Silicon Valley and San Francisco.
For shopping, Hillsdale Mall is a five-minute drive and is undergoing a complete renovation. There are upscale stores such as Nordstrom, Williams-Sonoma and Macy’s, Sephora and Trader Joe’s. Enjoy dining options like Paul Martin’s American Grill, The Cheesecake Factory and California Pizza Kitchen, or simply grab a quick burger at The Counter.
