Let your senses soar amidst a panorama of indoor/outdoor vitality…This Lower North estate is brand new, just completed by one of Hillsborough’s most artistic and renowned builders, Thorenfeldt Construction. Every inch is curated with the architectural execution you would expect from high-end custom design. Behold the bevy of imported materials, bespoke amenities, and a floorplan balancing minimalist aesthetic with pure function.
Not unlike the most desirable Modern Farmhouses of The Hamptons’ Montauk, or the sleek glamour of Malibu beach chalets, this new construction features a main home and luxury ADU revolving around a central pool terrace. Sun-streamed volume spans 5,435 sq. ft. in the main home, plus a phenomenal ADU Pool House of 725 sq. ft. with 14 ft. ceilings, kitchen, laundry, and marble bath.
This Lower North Hillsborough cul-de-sac is within a stone’s throw of many of the Town’s iconic estates. The surroundings of sheer prestige, coupled with no through-traffic, make this a rare location indeed. Reclaimed 100 year old antique barn wood ornaments the entrance as your first impression of modern quality. Pedestrian gates and driveway gates are sheathed in this timeless textured wood. Inside, the crisp white palette and clean lines create a minimalist canvas ready for your expressions. Oak and Walnut wood panels are strategic bursts of warmth in the living room and family room. Imported fixtures from Holland, Denmark, and Canada bring creative flourishes far from the mundane. The Modern Farmhouse vernacular takes on a purity of Scandinavian themes, accented by Italian cabinetry, white oak flooring, Miele appliances, and retractable walls of glass doors.
The cabriolet kitchen/family great room expands over 50 feet across, with huge rows of retractable doors blurring the line between home and garden. Soaring dimensions of this central nexus focus your life on dynamics of pool and sun. Lofty 10 ft. ceilings add to the airy ambiance. At the home’s core, a dramatic glass-lined floating staircase is a nod to the great Bauhaus contemporaries of an earlier age…a work of art unto itself! Perhaps the home’s most coveted retreat is a spectacular 17 x 17 CEO’s Office, commanding its own wing overlooking the front gardens.
Accommodations include 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms (plus office) in the main home, augmented by 905 sq. ft. of bonus space on the lower level.This downstairs haven is that perfect extra play room, music studio, theater, or gym. Upstairs, the top floor is non-stop natural light and view ambiance. Four upstairs bedroom suites are outfitted with high ceilings ranging from 10 to 12 ft. Each en suite bathroom is a unique design entity, individually crafted with their own memorable flair. The master bathroom wing is like your own European spa, decked in designer tiles, rich marble, and hand-crafted stone vanity. Views from the master float above the green-wrapped pool and Architectural Digest-inspired ADU Pool House.
Whether a design statement or entertainer’s tour de force, the lifestyle is decidedly “open air.” The Great Room purveys seamless flow with a south garden of pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, gas firepit, and lawns. Fully retractable doors in the ADU welcome extended entertaining, game room, or posh guest lodging with kitchen and laundry.
Marialinda Court is a rarely traveled cul-de-sac of Lower North Hillsborough. Nearby Carmelita and Forest View provide easy ingress/egress through a treasure trove of architecture to Burlingame shopping and dining. Broadway Burlingame is only one mile away, about a 15-20 minute stroll…For those seeking the ultimate in new design, paired with a legendary sense of community only found in Lower North Hillsborough…you have arrived.
Modern Design Highlights
"The Grand Dame of Hillsborough history and prestige, Lower North is still considered the most valuable and desirable location in Town."
Regarded as the most prestigious area in all of Hillsborough, Lower North commands the highest land values, the greatest prominence of flat, estate-caliber parcels, and a Gatsby-esque cachet that cannot be replicated.
Lower North Hillsborough occupies the “flats” (hence the “Lower” title) west of El Camino surrounding the Burlingame Country Club and mostly within walking distance of downtown Burlingame. Many of Hillsborough’s most exclusive streets such as Brewer Drive, Irwin Court, New Place Road, and Brookvale Road are located in Lower North. Majestic estates from the 1910s-1930s often command large flat parcels of over half-acre, including some 1 and 2 acre lots. Mixed into this architectural heritage is a modern blend of newer constructions with cutting-edge design, such as newer builds around Sharon, Forest View, and Irwin with values that would exceed $20,000,000. In January 2019 a 1.5 acre Parkside Avenue property hosting a 2013 contemporary home was sold for $15,000,000 primarily for its land value and new development potential.
Walkability and flat terrain are huge assets for the Lower North area. Many streets enjoy walking distance to North School, Crocker Middle, and downtown Burlingame Avenue. Some properties offer dramatic fairway views above the Burlingame Country Club (such as Brookvale, Eucalyptus, New Place, and Floribunda), while other areas such as the sub-district of Country Club Manor, feature more understated ranch-style floorplans along streets such as Country Club, Genevra, Pepper, and the 800 and 900 blocks of Hillsborough Boulevard. Further north, not far from Broadway Burlingame, the Lower North sub-districts of Hillsborough Oaks and Fagan Estates present a 1920s-1930s architectural storybook along streets such as Baileyana, Jackling, and Fagan Drive.
Lower North achieves part of its ambiance from historic estates such as La Dolphine on Manor Drive, Strawberry Hill on Redington, Rosecourt on Stacey Court, and William H. Crocker’s New Place, which is currently the Burlingame Country Club clubhouse. It’s not uncommon while strolling in Lower North to run across the architectural vestiges of storied gates and pillars.
Lower North encompasses the sub-districts of the Ryan Tract, Country Club Manor, and Hillsborough Oaks. Lower North is assigned primarily to North School. The setting of 30 Marialinda Court is just 1 mile from Broadway Burlingame, or about a 15-20 walk. Iconic Estates are within a stone's throw, and this particular block is less traveled and privately situated.
