Commanding the apex of one of Lower Hillsborough's most beloved cul-de-sacs,"Le Chalet Moderne" is an architectural statement of indoor/outdoor luxury. The home was custom built in 1983 to maximize its knolltop prestige and panoramic garden. Modern in aesthetic and timeless in floorplan fluidity, the design features 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, plus dedicated office. The brilliance of the design lies in the pure flow of an open layout. Seamless spaces circulate from indoors to outdoors, and merge beneath towering ceilings. Beyond the typically seen offerings, the side-by-side 4-car garage is a rarity for the enthusiast, and currently hosts a dynamic home theatre at the far end.
The architectural spirit of Le Chalet Moderne will evoke the alpine hideaway, the garden-infused muse of life, and the undeniable union of location meets livability. The current owners have meticulously maintained and upgraded this lifestyle, remodeling the kitchen for island meals, and renovating the pool and its organic hardscape. One step into the lofty foyer, and you will feel the architect's vision: not a mere house, but a transition of atmospheres reflecting its setting and the lovely asymmetry renowned in modern design. Your Zen retreat is sheltered at the crest of a .55 acre ridge, purveying its flat usable land in carefree privacy.
Most paramount, this rare environment delivers irreproducible quality of location in abundance. Perched at the end of the Bridge Road cul-de-sac, the home represents a "community within a community" of Lower South Hillsborough, a micro-neighborhood enjoying its own distinct neighborly parlance. Kids will walk less than 10 minutes down the block to South Elementary. Culinary treasures and shopping are within a 20 minute stroll to downtown San Mateo. Stalwart trees and the "stonehedge" gateposts and wall vestiges of Crocker's nearby historic "Uplands" accent the ageless pedigree of your neighborhood. Welcome to Bridge Road.
