Remarks
Huge price reduction!  This property is your chance to own a piece of San Carlos history with all the bells and whistles that any home owner would want on the fabulous Mid-Peninsula.  Situated on a nearly 13,000-square-foot, mostly flat lot, this property offers a majestic private back yard with room to entertain, garden or even expand the house.  There are bay views from the spacious living room, which has abundant, built-in bookshelves. The corner fireplace is truly unique and adds to the charm of the home.  Views of the western hills can be seen from the dining area and back yard.

The house is a rare, pagoda-style structure that was built by Capt. Nicholas T. Smith in the late 1880s as a peaceful retreat and was enjoyed by Smith and other distinguished men of the time.  Based on historical records, this house is the last physical reminder of the contributions that Smith made to founding the city of San Carlos.

The current owners have meticulously maintained this 3-bedroom/3-bathroom home and have felt privileged to be the caretakers of this wonderful property.

The home also features a large family room (with a second fireplace) that opens to a garden retreat.  The eat-in kitchen can be easily expanded into the larger-than-normal laundry room, or you can move in and enjoy the current functional space.  The master bedroom is adjacent to the grand back yard, so you can see lush garden views from the windows.  The second bedroom on the ground floor offers a wood beam ceiling for extra charm.  The third bedroom on the second story is perfect as an office, teen bedroom or private guest room.

The detached, 2-car garage has extra space for storage or a work area.
