1: skill in a particular craft.
2: the quality of design and work shown in something made by hand; artistry.
There’s a tremendous amount of craftsmanship between having a great idea and having a great product. ~ Steve Jobs
A Modern Craftsman by a Modern Craftsman
Custom-built with creativity and flair by seasoned local builders on one of the last vacant parcels in the Easton Addition, this striking, craftsman-style inspired home marries a timeless organic aesthetic, the quality of Burlingame’s original, now centenarian, houses, and the amenities, technology, and resilience of a new construction home. Working with a “family” of trusted subcontractors, the artisan owner-builder has been on site every day and involved in every inch and detail of the project. Fortuitously sited for exceptional privacy and light, 1321 is airy and softly modern, with high and vaulted ceilings, white walls, rich hardwood floors. Extensive use of natural materials, quality finishes and workmanship transcend trends. A central great room connects to separated, retreat-friendly spaces including a unique glass-walled den or home office. The detached studio ADU, thoughtfully designed and located, expands living and entertaining spaces, enhancing the functionality and privacy of the sun-soaked west-facing backyard haven.
Set on an approx. 6000sf lot, the two-story main house of approx. 3003sf and the detached studio ADU of approx. 432sf combine for finished living area of approx. 3435sf.
The main house includes four bedrooms (three upstairs, one on the main level, each with a dedicated bathroom), a striking glass-walled den or home office, the central great room combining living, dining and kitchen spaces, and separate powder, laundry and mudrooms.
The studio ADU (fifth bedroom), with full bathroom and kitchen, vaulted ceilings and skylights, is highly flexible space with multiple usage options: rec/family room, additional guest or extended family space, home business/office option, or a separate rental unit. Adjoining the ADU is a generous one-car garage with laundry hookups. The thoughtful ADU/garage “L” design creates space by shortening the driveway and maximizes the sunny, west-facing backyard’s size and unusual privacy.

Located 15 miles from downtown San Francisco, Burlingame is a populous suburb with a thriving commercial base of its own. The city stretches from San Francisco Bay to the east, Interstate 280 to the west, Millbrae to the north, and Hillsborough and San Mateo to the south.
Burlingame calls itself the City of Trees and counts 18,000 trees on public land and right-of-ways -- including several large stands of eucalyptus.
The Broadway and Burlingame Avenue corridors are popular shopping districts, but the city has commercial interests as well. Industrial growth in Burlingame was spurred in the 1960s and ’70s by its proximity to San Francisco International Airport, and the city is home to Virgin America airlines and related service industries.
Landmarks in Burlingame include the distinctive Caltrain station at Burlingame Avenue and California Drive, built in 1894 in the Mission Revival style. Nearby is Washington Park, which covers 19 acres and includes tennis courts, baseball fields, a basketball court, a picnic area, a playground, and plenty of green space. A more obscure landmark is the Burlingame Museum of Pez Memorabilia on California Drive.
