121 New Place Road

Grand Estate on 3.27 Acres

Located in Hillsborough

This exceptional property presents an ambiance of old Hillsborough grandeur with an unmatched setting bordering the verdant fairways of the prestigious Burlingame Country Club. Built in 1973, the home has magnificent architectural qualities reminiscent of a European manor yet is eminently livable for the 21st century. Sophisticated elegance unfolds amid grand public rooms destined for hosting lavish affairs, numerous office spaces and a library are suited for the executive lifestyle, and 6 bedrooms in the main residence provide options for large families, as well as staff. A caretaker’s apartment and detached guest house provide added accommodations one would expect on an estate of this magnitude.

Comprising approximately 3.27 acres, the manicured grounds, specimen palm trees, and amazing foliage afford the ultimate setting for outdoor living, complete with resort-style pool and spa complex plus tennis court. The home’s location is equally enticing with its position halfway between Silicon Valley and San Francisco in one of the country’s most affluent communities. Plus, just-minutes-away proximity to San Francisco International Airport makes pleasure and business travel to the far corners of the world ever so convenient. This world-class destination also benefits from access to acclaimed public and private schools.
