Hillsborough Building Sites
COMING SOON: 610 El Cerrito Avenue, HILLSBOROUGH, CALIFORNIA
Living Area: 5,700 Sq.Ft.
Lot Size: .63 Acres
Remarks: This hillside property is tucked away in one of the exclusive areas of Hillsborough, just 20 miles south of San Francisco and less than 5 minutes from nearby downtown San Mateo. The 0.63 acre site features a proposed Spanish Colonial house that is characterized by a rectangular or L-plan, horizontal massing, low-pitched mission clay tile roofs, exposed wood rafter tails, decorative wrought-iron window grills, broad expanses of thick whitewashed stucco walls with recessed-in French patio doors and French casement windows, and surrounded by native California oaks, boxwood hedges, Bougainvillea, Star Jasmine, and other indiginous plant life. Every attention to detail has been considered by Lawrence Cheung in the design of the minimalist interiors; meticulously proportioned spaces with a simple yet elegant material palette that consists of white plaster walls and wood timber beams, with handmade Tierra floor tiles, cast stone fireplaces with flush hearth floor, white oak floors and pale limestone used for basins and work surfaces. It is contemporary, unpretentious, and refined, yet also rustic and Old World, culminating a layering of past and present to reflect today's modern living. The 5,700 sq. ft. residence feature bathrooms with walk-in showers, Axor Starck bath fixtures, and custom-designed floating vanities in white oak with limestone countertops. The master bedroom suite to include a walk-in closet and a spa-like master bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and rain-head shower.
