Edgehill Estate

Dating back to 1914, this classic, shingled Craftsman blends original architectural detail with sophisticated, modern luxury. Surrounded by enchanting gardens on more than 2 acres, the distinguished main residence is introduced beyond a partially covered promenade off the large motor court. Inside, the home’s early heritage is never more apparent than in the formal public rooms where walls and cathedral ceilings are paneled in old-growth redwood and true divided light windows present the extraordinary gardens at every turn. Hardwood flooring and classic millwork unify the rooms throughout the two-level main residence, which spans approximately 6,600 square feet. Everyday living spaces are arranged on each level and up to 8 bedrooms are positioned in three separate wings, easily providing for any lifestyle need. A 1-bedroom cottage and 2-bedroom gatehouse add to the accommodations, perfect for guests or staff.

In keeping with the home’s early 20th century character, the magical gardens are a treasured aspect of this special property. More than 100 species of plants unfold on the grounds, many more than a century old and thriving in the ideal climate. Inviting milieus include crushed stone paths bordered by seasonal color, quiet spots for meditation, a tucked-away pool and spa, and vast lawn for grand-scale entertaining. Topping it all off is the home’s location in north Hillsborough with proximity to fine shopping and dining in downtown Burlingame, an international airport, and midway between San Francisco and Silicon Valley tech centers.
