Ideally located in the bucolic tree-lined community of Millbrae, 800 Taylor Boulevard is a custom-built Mediterranean-style single-family home that has been owned by the same family since its original date of construction. Designed by a renowned architect, this stately 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom residence has a thoughtful floor plan with outlooks onto a verdant corner lot.
Elegant terrazzo steps lead into a formal entry and an adjacent front living room anchored by a wood-burning fireplace. Oversized windows flood the front-facing living room with natural light and afford outlooks onto a landscaped front yard bordered by flagstones and mature rose bushes. Situated off the living room is a formal dining area ideal for dinner parties and for friends and family to gather. Newly installed wide-plank Burnished Acacia hardwood floors are featured as well as designer drum and pendant lighting.
The spacious eat-in kitchen has been thoughtfully upgraded and offers a suite of professional chef’s grade appliances including 6-burner 30-inch Thermador gas range with a vented Zephyr hood; a GE refrigerator; a 28-bottle wine refrigerator; and a stainless steel dishwasher. Additional custom features include an Italian Carrara chevron marble backsplash, a quartz countertop, an oversized under-mounted sink, slate-tiled floors, gleaming white cabinetry, and Hansgrohe fixtures. The family room is ideally located adjacent to the kitchen and features gleaming hardwood floors and 3 walls of windows looking onto the yard. Optimized for California indoor/outdoor living, a spacious deck is accessed from sliding glass doors and is ideal for barbecues and entertaining.
The three bedroom suites all include spacious built-in closets and storage cabinet spaces and can accommodate king-size beds. The en-suite master bedroom features a full bathroom with charming original tile and a separate stall shower. The guest bathroom also is finished with vintage tile and a spa-like bathtub. New mirror and lighting fixtures have also been installed in each full bathroom.
The lower level offers limitless opportunities for expansion potential. Multiple flex spaces can be utilized as workshops, guest suites, or for additional storage. A separate kitchenette with a washer and dryer and a half bathroom complete the downstairs level. The 2-car side-by-side garage includes an automatic garage door opener and can accommodate full-size vehicles.
Directly accessed from the garage level is a backyard blooming with a bounty of native flora and fauna. Mature plants include rose bushes and fruit-bearing lemon and cherry plum trees. Also located in the professionally maintained and irrigated backyard is a charming garden atrium. This vestibule can serve multiple purposes, from a functional greenhouse to a delightful glass-enclosed room to host an afternoon tea party.
