Authentic Tudor with Modern-Day Luxury

Combining the best of an architectural era gone by with contemporary California style, this ever-so-spacious home blends Tudor formality with numerous updates and an indoor/outdoor flow. Finely crafted earlier-era details, by Angus McSweeney of the noted architectural firm Willis Polk, circa 1933, include hardwood floors and hand-adzed ceiling beams, combined with absolutely stunning bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, and a newly expanded flexible-use lower level. The three-story floor plan comprises 5 bedrooms plus a family room and recreation room offering ample space for work-from-home and distance learning needs. A wonderful deck overlooking the canyon vistas invites al fresco living, vast level lawn awaits play, and almost three-quarters of an acre offers privacy and solitude in this sought-after Hillsborough neighborhood.
