Nestled atop 188 Hillcrest Road, this meticulously crafted single-family home stands as a beacon of elegance, offering breathtaking views of East Bay Hills, the San Mateo Bridge, and Mount Diablo in the distance. Built in 1949 and beautifully updated, the residence combines classic charm with modern amenities across a generous 8,525 sq.ft. lot, all while basking in the area's ideal mid-peninsula weather and the prestige of highly regarded San Carlos schools.

The home boasts three well-appointed bedrooms and two bathrooms, each reflecting careful attention to detail with features such as hardwood floors, ceiling fans, and glass panel doors leading to the outdoor spaces. The lower level presents a spacious third bedroom alongside a full bath and a temperature-controlled wine cellar capable of housing up to 2,200 bottles, ensuring both luxury and functionality. The chef’s kitchen is a true haven, with white cabinets, a designer tile backsplash, Wine River granite countertops, and top-of-the-line appliances, including a GE 5-burner gas range and a 42” GE Monogram built-in refrigerator. The center island not only serves as a culinary workspace but also accommodates a trash compactor, storage solutions, and a pet eating area, all under the glow of a large skylight.

Living spaces are adorned with features such as a fireplace with glass doors, crown molding, and large windows that frame the stunning views, alongside a dining area that boasts built-in cabinetry with glass fronts and a beautiful chandelier. Outdoor living is equally impressive, with a large patio, a hot tub-ready pad, and a raised patio section offering panoramic views, complemented by an orange and an oak tree for serene natural beauty.
