1422 Montero Avenue
An architectural tour de force, 1422 Montero Avenue merges luxury living and modern convenience in equal measure. Situated on a sleepy, tree-lined street, this one-of-a-kind build was originally constructed in 2001 before being taken down to the studs and reimagined in 2017. Beautifully balancing bold volumes of space, this four-bedroom, three-bathroom stunner offers endless light via oversized windows.
Embodying a true open-footprint, versatile living spaces unfold in a continuous flow, peppered with recessed alcoves to showcase art pieces. Grounded in hardwoods and appointed with soaring, double-height ceilings, the home’s common areas fluidly transition from one to the next, continuing from living and dining room at the front, to sprawling kitchen, family room, and sunny breakfast nook at the back.
Upstairs, four generous bedrooms join an expansive master suite and adjacent spa-like bathroom appointed with soaking tub, stall shower, and duo of sinks. Masterfully engineered to operate as a fully-automated smart home, this tech-savvy residence is synced to switches and thermostats as well as burglar, fire, CO2 alarms and exterior cameras. Equipped with a built-in Sonos system, additionally pre-wired for audio and video, the home’s garage contains a Tesla fast-charger.
Blurring the lines between custom craftsmanship and cutting-edge convenience, this Montero Avenue masterpiece evokes thoughtful design details at every turn. Boasting a uniquely long driveway to accommodate additional parking, the home offers a leveled backyard and firepit-clad patio perfect for outdoor entertaining. Situated in Burlingame’s esteemed Easton Addition, this family-friendly home is conveniently located within walking distance to award-winning schools, parks, and downtown Broadway, as well as city-bound thoroughfares for Peninsula, Silicon Valley, and San Francisco commutes.
Located 15 miles from downtown San Francisco, Burlingame is a populous suburb with a thriving commercial base of its own. The city stretches from San Francisco Bay to the east, Interstate 280 to the west, Millbrae to the north, and Hillsborough and San Mateo to the south. Burlingame calls itself the City of Trees and counts 18,000 trees on public land and right-of-ways -- including several large stands of eucalyptus. The Broadway and Burlingame Avenue corridors are popular shopping districts, but the city has commercial interests as well. Industrial growth in Burlingame was spurred in the 1960s and ’70s by its proximity to San Francisco International Airport, and the city is home to Virgin America airlines and related service industries. Landmarks in Burlingame include the distinctive Caltrain station at Burlingame Avenue and California Drive, built in 1894 in the Mission Revival style. Nearby is Washington Park, which covers 19 acres and includes tennis courts, baseball fields, a basketball court, a picnic area, a playground, and plenty of green space. A more obscure landmark is the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia on California Drive.
