Artisan-Crafted with Bay Views and Exceptional Outdoor Space

589 California Way, Redwood City

This exceptional Emerald Hills home draws its architectural inspiration from homes in the enchanting village of Carmel. With its distinctive Craftsman design, complete with classic shingled exterior and signature tapered columns, the home was built with meticulous attention to detail by its current owner, a renowned artisan in stone and ironwork. Every detail stands as a true testament to creative artisanship. Noteworthy features that set the home apart include five fireplaces, each a work of art in itself, boasting designs that are truly one of a kind. The imperial staircase is a masterpiece featuring handcrafted iron railings and clear glass panels that provide visual sightlines to the outdoors and a sense of openness and harmony. Handcrafted light fixtures throughout are each a unique piece of art.

In addition to the artisan details, this home showcases captivating San Francisco Bay views stretching from the towers of the Bay Bridge to the San Mateo Bridge and down the peninsula – a stunning backdrop in the formal living and dining rooms, the breakfast room, and the upstairs primary suite. Designed with a focus on indoor-outdoor living, the home seamlessly extends from the family room and adjacent sun room to a mostly covered sizeable tiled deck. Here, a fireplace lounge, dining area, and well-equipped outdoor kitchen offer a serene and inviting space for everyday living or grand entertaining. An expansive level lawn, a rarity in Emerald Hills, further enhances the outdoor space.

Personal accommodations abound, including a main-level guest bedroom and bath, three upstairs bedrooms with a shared bath, and the option to use one bedroom as a centrally located den or office. The primary suite features a sitting room or office, two customized walk-in closets, and a romantic bedroom with fireplace and sumptuous bath, each showcasing the best vantage point for the Bay views. Rounding out the accommodations is a lower-level finished room with flexible use for an office, fitness center, or even a wine cellar.

Completing this property is an attached two-car garage plus an expansive detached building with half-bath and private driveway currently used as an artisan workshop but with potential for various uses, such as a car collector's dream space, a maker's studio, or even conversion into an Accessory Dwelling Unit.
