A rare opportunity to purchase a tangible piece of San Diego history. The Edward and Blanche Gibson house, built by master craftsman Alexander Schreiber in 1917, is the only example of a Japanese Craftsman in Burlingame. The home has been lovingly upgraded with unwavering respect for the period ?including a completely renovated kitchen with an 8-burner Viking stove, built-in Viking refrigerator and soapstone countertops. Enjoy the first-floor main bedroom with a large walk-in closet and bathroom, complete with dual-head shower, Zellige subway tile and marble countertops. The backyard living area is a San Diego dream with a built-in BBQ, pergola, gas firepit and shower. The home is in a fantastic location, a short distance to all that South and North Park have to offer and in the McKinley school district. The home is designated historical, and the new owners will enjoy the Mills Act for significant property tax savings. See supplement for more information about this wonderful home.

  • GeneralAbsolutely stunning home. All of the bathrooms are updated. The gorgeous kitchen remodel was completed just days before listing. The kitchen features an eight burner/double oven Viking range and hood, a counter depth Viking refrigerator, and a built-in Bosch microwave/convection oven. The modern vintage look is completed with Subway tile, soapstone countertops, butcher block prep areas, and glass panel cabinetry. The living and dining areas retain all of their original charm and grandeur with abundant gumwood accents, crown moulding and casings, built-in china cabinet and blue tile hearth. The main bedroom is on the first floor and features an ensuite bath with a double shower, two sitting areas, built-in desk space, and a walk-in closet. The two upstairs bedrooms are bright and sunny, and one features built-in twin beds with abundant storage. Built-in speakers are in all downstairs spaces, including the front porch and back yard. The backyard is an absolute dream with a dining area, custom concrete and river rock planters, BBQ island, pergola, gas fireplace, and outdoor shower. The garage structure is modified to include a laundry room (the kegerator conveys!), a workshop/storage area, and a bonus room currently used as an office. There is central air and heat. The foundation was replaced with permits in 2013, and the sewer line is ABS to the street (a small area of cast iron remains under the house) Fireplace is recommended not useable and conveys as-is.
