Modernized 1930s Redwood City home with original touches asks $2.9 million


Built in 1931, this Spanish Mission–style home has all the charms of country living, with treed, creekside grounds and endless indoor-outdoor spaces, plus the comforts of modern living.

The renovated interior has contemporary design with a number of the original touches including parquet floors and built-in cabinetry. Floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors flood the house with natural light, illuminating recently expanded spaces including the family room, kitchen, and master suite.

The pretty abode melds old-world charm with design au courant. In the living room, enormous windows take up nearly an entire wall. The space is swathed in a dove hue with wood trim giving a fresh feel to more rustic elements including hardwood floors, antique lighting and exposed brick around the fireplace. The formal dining room and kitchen maintain the same aesthetic, though with some moodier touches like inky wood beams, trim, and fireplace as well as grey cabinets. A tile backsplash pays homage to the home's original style. Two large doors here open up to the backyard.

Upstairs, four bedrooms offer airy spaces to rest, the most of which is the master suite with windows on two walls with a lush display of tree tops. All bathrooms, too, have been updated, fusing a hint of farmhouse with modern decor like marble counters and patterned tile. Outside, groomed grounds await with brick patios for dining al fresco or gathering with friends around the fire. A small pool rounds out the perfect backyard sanctuary.
