This gracious Foster City home is located on a corner lot at 991 Swan Street, and has what can easily be defined as outstanding curb appeal. A lush green lawn is complimented with a imaginatively conceived rock garden, and carefully crafted bushes and trees.
It is ideally located in Foster City--a city designed to encourage gracious outdoor living with its many walkways, lagoons, community parks and beaches. Its location, just moments away from Highways 92 and 101, offers rapid access to much of the business and industry that defines the peninsula. Just a few include Oracle, Visa, Sony, and Gilead.
It offers 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 1840 +/- sf of living space.
Guests entering the house are immediately welcomed by a serene ambiance that is created by the softly hued, and perfectly coordinated, combination of colors of the floor and ceiling that is seen throughout much of the home.
It is worth noting that the residence has new interior paint and floors.
A reverse perspective reveals the size of the living room, and the deeply set bay windows to the right that capture, and invite in, the warmth of the sun.
Just steps away is the formal dining room-perfectly located for a casual luncheon or a formal evening's meal.
The dining room is comfortable in size, immediately adjacent to the efficient kitchen, and enhanced with the light from two large picture windows.
As one tours the home, it will become obvious that it is ideally suited for entertaining-and that the kitchen will be the heart of this activity. Above is the well conceived kitchen space. Everything is within easy reach for food preparation.
Cabinets at every level provides storage for favorite cooking and serving pieces, and large overhead supplemental lighting is in place for evening events.
Just adjacent to the kitchen counter workspace and inset stove, is a unique space that can serve multiple purposes. It can be an eat in breakfast site, or it is equally suited to being a meal or buffet site when guests and residents are utilizing the family room.
The fireplace to the left anchors the family room space as a source of warmth and enjoyment on cooler days in the home.
A reverse view reveals the close proximity of the kitchen to the expansive family room that is immediately warm and welcoming.
This handsome and gracious room is ideally placed to be the heart of the home-for both hospitality and relaxation. With its floor to ceiling sliding glass door that opens onto the large backyard, it awaits special events, large holiday activities, and has the flexibility to host them all.
There are three bedrooms in the home. Two will be shown for your consideration. The first, above, is the primary bedroom. It provides a very generous floorspace for the creation of a personal and imaginative design concept that should fit both the room's appeal, and accommodate the large picture windows against the far wall.
A second bedroom continues the home's color theme of softly neutral walls and floors, and is also flexible in final configuration.
There are two bathrooms. One offers this cheerful and distinctive set of dual sinks with matching mirrors and cheerful overhead lighting.
Just outside, in the rear of the home, is this very large fenced yard that awaits your imagination and personal touch to enhance the presence of multiple established trees and bushes.
This residence has so many elements to recommend it. Besides its impressive appearance and quality, its central peninsula location is outstanding. Please contact me immediately with your questions and interest at (510) 517-6280. The house is being offered for sale for $1,495,000.Posted by Bruce Wagg on
