The captivating sitting room/library, with deep navy walls and a gas-insert marble fireplace, is a cozy place to enjoy conversation or retreat for a quiet moment with a good book. 

The dining room with custom window coverings is a fabulous space for intimate dinner parties and formal entertaining.

The chef’s kitchen and magnificent family room are indeed the heart of this home, offering an abundance of space for everyday living and entertaining. The open great room design with a dining area seamlessly connects to the outdoors through double French doors.

A second primary suite on the ground floor is ideal for guests or extended family.  The other three bedrooms have private bathrooms, providing comfortable retreats for everyone.

The four-car double tandem garage is approximately 829 sq. ft. There is great potential for ADU—Buyer to verify. 

Note from the Seller:

When we toured this house, we said, “That’s it… we’re done, we are home.” As an artist, I have always treated this house like a blank canvas, adding bits of love and happiness wherever possible. I wanted my guests to feel joy as soon as they walked through the door. It always made me smile, and I adored sharing it with others. 

My heart will forever be full of the beautiful memories we created here: the many parties in our backyard underneath our canopy of market lights, dinners with friends, evenings at the fire pit, and painting in my studio. 

Beresford Avenue is a very special street where friends become family.  It’s the little things: a wave, walking our dogs together, happy hours with the kids all playing together, or sharing our ovens during holidays. We are a village that shows up for each other.

 If you are lucky enough to have a home that fills your heart to the brim, then you are HOME. May you find the magic inside these walls and on this street—we certainly did! 

Welcome home.

California may be known for its temperate weather, but Redwood City boasts the added distinction of having tied the Canary Islands and North Africa’s Mediterranean Coast for the world’s best climate in a 1920s U.S. and German test -- hence, the city’s motto, which officials have plastered on signs around town: “Climate Best by Government Test.” Around 81,000 people live in Redwood City according to 2013 United States Census Bureau estimates.

The city is located near the middle of the San Francisco Peninsula and is surrounded by rolling hills and bay shoreline. Redwood City also boasts a revitalized downtown, which is home to restaurants, bars, and nightclubs, as well as the San Mateo County government center and courthouse. Some downtown parking meters even let you add time via cell phone.

The city limits include the Redwood Shores neighborhood on the waterfront, which is physically separate from the rest of Redwood City and borders San Carlos and Belmont. The district houses the headquarters of Oracle Corp. and Electronic Arts. In the hills above the city lies the Emerald Hills neighborhood, a beautiful residential area that’s home to Edgewood Park & Natural Preserve and close to Interstate 280.

The median household income is $79,000, and the median home value is $765,000 according to 2013 U.S. Census Bureau data. Of the city’s 29,167 housing units, 52 percent are owner occupied.
