On Mariner’s Island — the desirable mid-peninsula isle on the San Francisco Bay near shopping centers, restaurants, parks, and the 101 and 92 exchange — is a private, end-unit townhome with updated kitchen and baths. A tiled courtyard leads to the home’s front entry. Inside, natural light from large windows and glass doors enhance the 1200 sq. ft. two-level layout with high ceilings and freshly painted walls. Inviting public rooms include the living room with fireplace, open dining area with patio access, and galley kitchen with stone countertops, stainless steel appliances, and walk-in pantry. New carpeting lines the staircase that ascends to bedrooms, including a suite with two closets, balcony access, and an en suite bathroom. The unusually large back yard features modern concrete pavers, a loggia, deck, storage closet, and colorful plantings. It also provides access to the community pool and spa, adjacent Mariner’s Island Park, and nearby Bay Trail for miles of scenic hiking, biking, and strolling.
AT A GLANCE
One of the largest cities on the San Francisco Peninsula, San Mateo boasts many options for recreation as well as a revitalized downtown, with a large movie theater, restaurants, and bars. Spanish explorers first came to present-day San Mateo on a 1776 scouting trip and named the creek they slept beside San Mateo Creek. In 1863, the railroad arrived in San Mateo, leading some wealthy San Franciscans to build summer and weekend homes in the area.
Today, approximately 100,000 people call the city home. The median household income is $88,000, and the median home value is $722,000 according to 2013 United States Census Bureau data. Of San Mateo’s 40,014 housing units, 54 percent are owner occupied.
The city is home to the Hillsdale Shopping Center and a number of parks -- including Central Park and the Coyote Point Recreation Area. The CuriOdyssey museum at Coyote Point offers science and wildlife exhibits for children and adults, some of which feature live animals. For a breathtakingly beautiful jog, hike, or bicycling outing, locals head to the Sawyer Camp Trail at the Crystal Springs Reservoir.
