A stunning residence with time-honored architecture sits behind a majestic gate, surrounded by verdant and lush landscaping. Located in coveted Lower Hillsborough...welcome to 325 El Portal Avenue.
Through the storybook entry, step into timeless elegance. Drenched with traditional touches throughout, this 4 bedroom, 5.5 bath home has it all. The expansive living room allows for multiple seating areas and is showcased by high ceilings, large windows, and a beautiful fireplace. The paneled library includes built-in shelving, fireplace, and access to the courtyard. Exquisitely and meticulously hand-painted ceiling in the formal dining room brings warmth and grace.
Entertain in the delightful, sun drenched kitchen. Light shines through the wall of windows overlooking the courtyard and yard beyond. The large island invites family and friends to gather in this charming space. With high-end appliances, a butler’s pantry, and several other well designed pantries, this kitchen is for the inspired and organized cook. A cozy breakfast room leads to another lovely surprise - a wonderful potting room! Simple lines, sink, plenty of counter space, built-in cabinetry, high ceilings with a whimsical light fixture, this space is a favorite of many who visit. A spacious office or homework room off of the kitchen can be reimagined however you like.
Underneath the pergola, the courtyard can be used for al-fresco dining or as an outdoor living room. A built-in gas and charcoal BBQ is conveniently located just off of the courtyard.
Retire to the upstairs by way of the elegant staircase that anchors this home. Here one will find an intimate master suite and three other generously sized bedrooms each with their own ensuite bath. One suite has its own playroom/office!
Outside, experience the “Carver Garden” registered with the Smithsonian Institute in 2007. One can find a place for relaxing, entertaining or gardening in lovely vignettes artfully intertwined with lush and full greenery, redwoods, maple and magnolia trees.
