Lower Hillsborough’s Ryan Tract is the city’s most desirable neighborhood, a small, level, woodsy, area covering about 0.3 square miles that has quiet, leafy streets populated by large private estate-like properties. It adjoins an exclusive Country Club and is conveniently close to Burlingame Avenue’s upscale shopping and fine dining plus the quaint 1894 Caltrain station that presents a practical alternative to commuter traffic.


  • Situated at the end of an exclusive cu-de-sac, this newly built, multi-level Italian Renaissance-style home is as close to visual and practical perfection as is possible. The design by David Chu & Associates incorporates old world style, materials and craftsmanship with the advantages of 21st century technology. It provides a comfortable 3,564+/-s.f. main level with large, flowing open floor plan plus an en-suite guest room, a 2,755+/-s.f. upper floor with four en-suite bedrooms including a sumptuous master bedroom suite and a 376+/-s.f. basement with wine cellar, media room and bar. All three levels are connected by an elevator.

    The two-story entrance foyer displays a cool, serene Mediterranean-style simplicity with rounded arches, and a mezzanine. On one side the 23-foot long living room provides ample space for entertaining large groups or for relaxing family get-togethers. A bold feature of the room is the distinctive pyramid shaped marble fireplace.

    On the other side of the foyer is the formal dining room with plenty of space for many or a few.

  • Next to the dining room, the spectacular kitchen is ideal for a gourmet chef, professional caterer or an informal family breakfast. There is abundant workspace on marble counter tops and large center island, plenteous storage in the custom-built cabinets, a six-burner Wolf gas stove, wall mounted ovens, giant double door refrigerator, wine cooler, dishwasher and a butler’s pantry. The kitchen opens to an “L” shaped room containing a breakfast nook and a comfortable family room with a fireplace and folding panel doors to the patio and pool. Also on the ground floor is den and a luxurious guest bedroom with a bathroom, generous walk-in closet and a private porch.

    The basement holds a capacious wine cellar, a full barroom with a unique marble bar and a media room for movie fans.

    To round out this offering, the property has been professionally landscaped and the designer has created a pleasing symmetry in the private outdoor space where one can cook, swim, entertain or simply relax in style.
