Welcome to 2524 Dekoven.

Every so often there’s a home so special that words cannot do it justice. We could describe it as inviting, and comfortable, but one really must see this home in person to appreciate the complete experience. It has been lovingly enhanced, remodeled, and remade in a classic style. The result? Gracious spaces that radiate harmony.

Step in through the formal entry into the capacious remade great room which sports newly refinished natural oak flooring, neutral tone color scheme, open-beamed soaring ceilings, and abundant natural light —a gas fireplace adorned with travertine façade is the centerpiece of the room, and ideal for cool winters. Incorporated into this great room, is a large communal dining area—ideal for large gatherings of close family.

Adjacent is an updated kitchen with its rich wood cabinetry and intriguing granite counters, while appliances include Frigidaire® built-in gas range and oven combination, refrigerator with French doors, dual stainless sinks, dishwasher and built-in Whirlpool® microwave. This area embraces a separate enclave for casual meals and remains deeply functional while staying true to the time-honored aesthetic. Here, we also find access through glass French Doors to the spacious outdoor entertaining area.

Down a sun-drenched hallway, are three bedrooms—including the Owner’s ensuite—all with cathedral ceilings and recessed lighting. A hall bath services the two bedrooms and features a deep soaking tub, and a Maytag stack washer and dryer is conveniently located in a dedicated hall closet.

The Owner’s ensuite enjoys a granite countertop sink, and a large glass door shower is adorned with marble tile and accent inlay. This room also has access to the rear grounds through a sliding glass door.

Benefitting from an ideal bucolic Belmont Hills location, unique to this home is its level lot topography—extremely rare in the otherwise elevated terrain. The freshly landscaped grounds includes two grass play areas, and an enormous gated level driveway for multiple vehicles, secure play areas, and an oversized detached two-car garage.

Located in the heart of the Peninsula, this area once hosted vacationers from San Francisco and summer retreats began popping up on Belmont’s bucolic hillsides to supply respite and relaxation as well as an escape from the cool city fog. 

This home, with its charming curb appeal and well-designed new softscape and hardscape driveway, retains that feeling of being away for a weekend retreat and at the same time living serenely with today’s amenities. A private and spacious level rear yard—with designer landscape features—offers an easy to maintain grounds.

This location is coveted for its beauty, relative seclusion, access to open space, and hiking trails. Not far is the Carlmont Village Shopping Center which offers a variety of retailers, restaurants and popular gathering spots, such as Starbucks, Vivace Ristorante and Waterdog Tavern featuring craft cocktails and pet-friendly outdoor dining. Other businesses include Chase Bank, Bank of America, Hassett’s ACE Hardware, and the upscale Lunardi’s Grocery. For shopping, Hillsdale Mall is a short drive away and has completed an entire renovation, with stores such as Nordstrom, Macy’s, Williams-Sonoma, Sephora and Trader Joe’s. One can savor dining options at the new Dining Terrace, Paul Martin’s American Grill, The Cheesecake Factory, California Pizza Kitchen, and The Counter (subject to COVID operation). 

Belmont is ideally positioned on the Peninsula between the Silicon Valley and City of San Francisco. The location is popular because of its proximity to major travel arteries—Highways 101, 280, 92. Caltrain, San Francisco International Airport and Coastal towns are conveniently nearby.
