Authentic Japanese design principles throughout beginning with a traditional entry in which to leave shoes. Shoji screens delineate spaces, custom finished sliding doors conceal storage for uncluttered living, and natural wood elements unify the home. The central living room offers a traditional Japanese dining experience with recessed floor and tatami mat seating around a custom table, and can easily be converted to Western style use. Views extend to the tranquil Zen gardens with flowing water, stepping stone paths, and lush foliage. 3 bedrooms, 1 currently being used as an office, 2 sumptuous baths including one with Japanese ofuro soaking tub, curbless shower, and heated floors. Amazing natural light, granite kitchen with quality appliances, separate family room, and large decks for outdoor living. San Francisco Bay views from the front and less than 1 mile to downtown shops and restaurants. Excellent San Carlos schools.
