Bay-View Single-Level Living
4169 Maple Ave
4169 Maple Avenue
Renovated and refined, this Mid-Century retreat frames Bay-and-beyond panoramas from expansive picture windows. Its Lincoln Highlands setting, while close to conveniences, nestles at an easy elevation enabling long-range outlooks across the Bay. In an ideal single-story layout, light-filled living, dining, and family-room spaces converge with the kitchen at the heart of the home. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms include a primary suite that enjoys the view and a separation of space.
This Lincoln Highlands location balances low-traffic tranquility with great proximity to everyday activities. Neighboring, walkable Dimond and Laurel shopping districts feature local businesses including cosmopolitan cafes and grocery stores that are neighborhood institutions. Parklands arc around the neighborhood making hiking, swimming, creek wading, picnicking, dog romps, and tennis easily accessible. Also easily accessible are beloved schools, like Sequoia Elementary, and Highways 13 and 580.
Clean-lined, geometric Mid-Century hallmarks accentuate the façade. A flatline roof with wide overhang squarely caps the home, and ledgestone stacked at the base brings ornamentation to built-in planters. A paver-stone porch extends from the front door and gives way to a dynamic interior animated by long-range outlooks; in the living-dining room, perpendicular picture windows intersect, pointing toward the Bay. Under foot, wide-plank wood flooring reflects abundant natural light, and a recessed lighting scheme integrates overhead.
Open on both sides, the U-shaped kitchen expands to a breakfast alcove and butler’s pantry-style wall of storage and display. Opulent surfaces, marble and glass tile, meet in an efficient configuration of cabinetry sporting rectilinear hardware and stainless appliances.
Bathrooms, similarly sophisticated, showcase gray-veined marble flooring and geometric accent tile that harmonizes with it. Their corresponding compositions include rectangular sinks, a pair of which grace the hall bath.
Delight in indoor-outdoor ease from interior public spaces that flow to the home’s level quarter-acre property. Step out from the fireplace-equipped family room to ultra-private hardscaped back grounds combining an enclosed patio, adjoining lawn, plus a paved activity area. Conveniently, the kitchen-connected mudroom opens out as well, at a point along the driveway that streamlines grocery transit.
The long-stretching property, sheltered at the back by a leafy hillscape, also features a detached multi-car garage with workshop. Windowed with multiple entries and pitched ceiling, it creates an airy project environment.
