About our home

Located on a beautiful, quiet, tree-lined street, this 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is the perfect place to come home to after a day in San Francisco or at the ocean or hiking in the mountains. A wall of windows on the inside provides plenty of natural light and an open view of the lush, private backyard and patio. The backyard includes an in-ground trampoline, a playhouse, a sandbox, a swing, and patio dining furniture amidst greenery and flowers. There is always something blooming year round. Out front there is a redwood tree and a basketball hoop down the street.

We have bicycles that you may use and a garden area where I grow vegetables and fruit each year. There is no maintenance required for the yard (we have a gardener who comes weekly and water on automatic sprinklers). Our neighbors are wonderful and will be helpful if you have questions.

We just installed an in-ground trampoline which provides hours of fun for all of our children (and even the adults).

We have high speed internet, a new large flat screen TV, and wifi.

Also have a Wii gaming system you may use.

The master bedroom includes a king plush canopy bed and private bathroom. Bedroom 2 has a single bed, bedroom three has bunk beds, and the fourth bedroom has a queen loft bed and a toddler bed.

Our home is located in the heart of the San Francisco Peninsula with easy access to San Francisco, beaches, forests and more.

We are on a quiet street with beautiful trees lining the way, but it's also a convenient 5-minute walk to the grocery store, pharmacy, post office, restaurants, coffee shop, and more. And, we are near the freeways, bicycle trails, parks, and schools.

There is a farmer's market every Saturday morning and Tuesday afternoon in the downtown area with delicious, fresh produce from local farmers.

Redwood City's official motto is "Climate Best By Government Test!" We enjoy moderate weather typically ranging from 70 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer.

Redwood City has a thriving, newly renovated downtown with live theater performances, weekly outdoor music performances, weekly concerts in the park, weekly movies on the square, and weekly dance lessons on the square - all for FREE! There is a 20-theater movie complex, shopping and some of the most critically-acclaimed restaurants on the San Francisco Peninsula.

Nearby communities such as Stanford, Palo Alto, Menlo Park and San Carlos also offer an array of restaurants, shops and galleries. In addition, Palo Alto has an old-time movie theater that plays black and white films complete with an organ and it has a theater that plays foreign movies as well.

A short drive or train ride to the north is the world-famous city of San Francisco. Minutes from our house are miles and miles of gorgeous hiking trails, including through redwood forests. And about half an hour's drive away is Half Moon Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

It's about 90 minutes to Monterey and its world-famous aquarium and Carmel and stunning 17-mile drive.

Napa Valley with its many vineyards and spas are about 75 minutes by car. Also look for a petrified forest and "old faithful" geyser near Calistoga.

Stanford University is just 10 minutes by car to the south, and famous Silicon Valley companies like Google and Apple are just beyond that.

Giant redwood forests can be found nearby.
