The California Architectural Dream…Modern Transitions of Home and Garden
This is it...Hillsborough's absolute #1 location, the highly coveted and scarcely available Country Club Manor. From this ultimate location, you will treasure a rarely traveled “circle,” walk-friendly to downtown Burlingame Avenue. Lower North Hillsborough is widely regarded as the Town’s epicenter of desirability. And within this region, Country Club Manor and Genevra Road rise to the top as the quintessence of the lifestyle…the best of the best!
With virtually no through-traffic, this special enclave celebrates the California architectural dream, past and present. Exclusively single-level, the neighborhood delivers true synergy of the indoor/outdoor experience in sun-streamed privacy. 40 Genevra Road is uniquely tailored to maximize this joie de vivre, boasting a re-imagined modern floorplan that revolves around an enormous kitchen/family Great Room. The current owners masterminded a new layout that merges tradition, modern flow, and seamless interaction with pool and flat, 100% usable garden. Raised ceilings accent an entrance hall flanked by generous living and dining rooms. Hardwood floors and a new designer color palette set the tone. Just ahead, you are drawn in to the heart of the home: the central kitchen/family ensemble stretches 42 feet across and defines “open concept.” A cathedral ceiling rises 11 feet above, emphasizing airy volume. The copious scale integrates island seating and breakfast area for a large table. Two sets of French doors extend this fluid space directly onto sun-drenched terraces, newly refinished pool, huge lawn, and a circa-2010 390 sq. ft. Accessory Dwelling Unit.
Amenities span 4,000 sq. ft. including 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms in the main home, plus the expanded luxury of the 1-bedroom, 1-bath, permitted ADU, ideal for office, gym, or au pair/in-law lodging. The current owners’ architectural remodel optimizes family or work-at-home flow with two distinct wings that flank the central Great Room. The north wing includes a large guest retreat (or the perfect office near the kitchen), while the south wing hosts three bedrooms including the master suite. Warmed by a fireplace, the master hideaway also features garden access and an oversized bathroom and walk-in closet with tons of designer potential.
Outside, a premium all-usable half-acre becomes an extension of the living space. The lifestyle comes alive with east/west sun exposures and multiple leisure destinations. The ADU (with 10 ft. ceilings and full bath) shines like new as your “life of the party” pool house or stay-at-home office. Newly landscaped grounds are irrigated by well water, and comprise perfect velvety lawns, specimen olive trees, kids’ play zone, plus the freshly re-surfaced PebbleSheen pool…resort-style impact! Adjoining the pool house, you will find a built-in kitchen area, plus a side patio as your secluded conversation pit, or future trampoline or bocce ball court.
Lower North Hillsborough’s exclusive Country Club Manor is less than a mile from downtown Burlingame Avenue, North School, and Crocker Middle. Within these totally flat walk-friendly environs, you will blur the line between suburban and downtown living…renowned for its prestige, yet humbly approachable in character and convenience. The very essence of Town and Country welcomes you warmly…
