860 Regent Ct, San Carlos – Listed at $1,598,000

Tucked away in a peaceful cul-de-sac, with dazzling views above San Carlos, is this 2-story home that combines casual living with formal entertaining, and indoor comforts with outdoor splendor. The 5-bed and 3-bath home offers living quarters of roughly 2,710 square feet on an approximately 8,400 square-foot lot. In addition to the 2-car garage, the south/southwest-facing home sports air conditioning, and Borrego solar panels.

As you enter the home through double doors, you step into a tiled foyer.  Another pair of double doors frame the formal living room, which is at once restful, open, and elegant. It contains a wood-burning fireplace. It is filled with sunlight.

The leisurely transition into the family room off the updated kitchen showcases the home’s second wood-burning fireplace. The unique stone-adorned hearth provides a lovely farmhouse ambience. In addition, the crown molding, hardwood flooring, open space, and large windows all make this family room feel like a “great room with a view!”

You’ll find three bedrooms ––including the master––and two bathrooms on the main level. And the two remaining bedrooms and another full bath are located on the lower level. Bonus storage options throughout.

Did we mention the views? The yard-facing bedrooms give you a glimpse of the stunning vistas that wrap around the rear of the property. The family room and main kitchen area provide separate access points to the back yard.

Outside, the yard accommodates a satisfying blend of areas to lounge in for sun and shade––and a combination of natural foliage with carefully-crafted landscaping. Front and back, you’ll find a variety of trees, plants, flowers, and shrubs complemented by stonework and brickwork that’s pleasing to the eye.


The interior fuses a mixture of hardwood floors, tiled floors (in the entryway and bathrooms), and carpeted areas.

The kitchen has tastefully-finished Corian countertops, cabinets with glass frontage, plenty of storage, an oversized stove-top with an integrated cutting board, a practical chef’s pot rack, recessed lighting, and a dedicated eat-in dining space.

All the bedrooms are roomy and contain extra-large closets. The rooms looking on to Regent Court bask in sunlight, while the rooms facing the rear of the house capture partial or almost-full views.

The big master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom, which contains a separate WC, a vanity nook, and bonus storage. Plus, the master, in particular, takes advantage of the view.

The lower level gives access to the garage, and you could convert one of the bedrooms on this story into an office with ease.


Saunter out onto the extensive patio, comprised of Connecticut Blue paving stones. Its impeccably-laid stonework incorporates a wide set of steps, which leads you to the lower yard areas, along with side yard coverage.

The sweeping deck, against a backdrop of exquisite views, provides ample room for entertaining. The transition from the wooden deck to the flagstone patio––and back again––is beautifully appointed.

The yards pièce de résistance? The water feature. A soothing stream, using recycled pumped water, traverses through three fountain tiers, surrounded by tastefully landscaped plants and stonework. A stone slab acts as a bridge across the stream mid-way.

The back yard contains four levels, accessed easily by steps and other walk-ways.

The huge outdoor space offers multiple seating areas, separate paved sections (brick and stepping stone), a grassy zone, mature trees, and an array of terraced flowers, shrubs, herbs, and hedges.

The yard is composed of distinct outside sections that can be described as exterior “rooms.” So you’ll find at least a couple of spots that are perfect for your hammock, for example! A tapestry of colorful vines divides certain parts of the yard into these separate outdoor living nooks.

A secluded spot at the base of the back yard houses a viewing deck with built-in benches––yet another way to savor this home’s captivating views.
