Whole-Home Transformation on the Edge of Hillsborough

740 Murphy Drive, San Mateo

Located in San Mateo’s highly desirable Foothill Terrace area, this fully renovated home merges designer style with effortless living, all on a single spacious level. Set on the edge of Hillsborough amidst sidewalk-lined streets with neighborhood views out to the San Francisco Bay, the home has undergone a comprehensive upgrade. Highlights include entirely new flooring, a new modern kitchen, and completely revamped bathrooms, including a transformation of a half-bath into a full bath with integrated laundry. This pristine home presents contemporary touches throughout, offering 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, formal living and dining rooms, plus a family room and an eat-in kitchen.

The home showcases handsome engineered wood floors, a warm neutral color palette, and kitchen cabinetry in the perfect taupe shade. Marble-like quartz countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms are elegantly paired with on-trend straight-set tile backsplashes and shower surrounds. There is recessed LED lighting in every room plus a fireplace in the formal living room and family room, each newly outlined in tile or natural stone to create a focal point. The renovation extends to all new windows and glass doors, plus the convenience of EV charging capabilities in the attached 2-car garage.

The home’s exterior is freshly painted and newly landscaped to enhance its classic curb appeal. The secluded rear yard is an ideal haven for play and entertaining. Escape to your own private oasis surrounded by lush foliage and fruitful trees. This secluded yard offers a tranquil retreat, along with homegrown fruit straight from the tree. Located within a mile of top-rated schools, including Baywood Elementary, Borel Middle School, Aragon, Junipero Serra High School and The Carey School, and just minutes from Highway 92, this home ensures quick access to all of Silicon Valley and San Francisco.
