The pleasure and flexibility of a spacious, beautifully designed home can be yours at 992 Governors Bay Drive. Imagine a home that can accommodate your busy lifestyle and give you space to truly relax, a quiet spot for a home office, or a bedroom for everyone. This is an impressive home with plenty of space to grow.
Location is everything and this home is perfectly situated in the idyllic, tree-lined Governors Bay neighborhood. With no neighbors directly in back, you’ll savor a vast view of a peaceful Redwood Shores open space preserve. Not one but two award-winning schools are a few short minutes away.
The interior aesthetic is contemporary and undeniably high end. An extensive remodel with sophisticated material choices and many lux upgrades was completed recently. Tones and textures are coordinated throughout the home.
The thoughtful floorplan has an intuitive flow. Entering the foyer, you’ll glimpse a stately staircase that sets a luxurious tone. Minimalist, over-sized lighting fixtures hang from the soaring ceiling. In the living room, a dramatic fireplace with a stacked stone mantel features the latest bioethanol, ventless, smokeless technology. Gleaming hardwood floors and crown molding complete the look.
Extensively renovated, the kitchen is a showstopper. European Leicht cabinetry, honed quartz waterfall countertops, and mosaic backsplash blend harmoniously. High end appliances will bring joy to any gourmet: Eura Kera gas range, Sub Zero refrigerator, Miele oven, and Miele built-in coffee system. The pièce de résistance is the floor to ceiling, glass fronted wine wall and matching temperature-controlled cellar with a 375 bottle capacity.
The kitchen is ideally placed to create flow between the generously sized family room, formal dining room, and access to the backyard. Easily carry a tray of drinks out to the patio and enjoy lounging around the natural gas fire pit table with family and friends. Landscaping, recently installed paver stones, and integrated lighting create such a mood.
Upstairs, experience the lavishness of a large primary bedroom suite. An en suite lounge area welcomes you with your very own fireplace and plenty of space to arrange comfy seating to binge watch your favorite shows. Wake up to refreshing views of the wetlands and open the windows to pure quiet. The bathroom features a double vanity, soaker tub, and large glass enclosed shower. Here you’ll also find two separate walk in closets with premium, built in organizing systems that any fashionista will love.
Two more bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom with double vanity complete the upstairs space. Back downstairs, a fourth bedroom with bathroom can be used for guests or converted into an office.
The two-car garage, easily accessible through the kitchen, is complemented by a large laundry room with sink and pantry. Two Tesla Powerwall battery systems integrate with owned solar panels to power the home with clean, affordable electricity.
The Redwood Shores community is an easy commute to many notable Bay Area tech companies and in the middle of an award-winning school district. Surrounded by natural beauty, parks and landscaped paths, it’s a peaceful sanctuary on the San Francisco Peninsula. This property is situated in the Governors Bay HOA as well as the Redwood Shores Owners Association (RSOA).

Enter"California may be known for its temperate weather, but Redwood City boasts the added distinction of having tied the Canary Islands and North Africa’s Mediterranean Coast for the world’s best climate in a 1920s U.S. and German test -- hence, the city’s motto, which officials have plastered on signs around town: “Climate Best by Government Test.” Around 81,000 people live in Redwood City according to 2013 United States Census Bureau estimates.
The city is located near the middle of the San Francisco Peninsula and is surrounded by rolling hills and bay shoreline. Redwood City also boasts a revitalized downtown, which is home to restaurants, bars, and nightclubs, as well as the San Mateo County government center and courthouse. Some downtown parking meters even let you add time via cell phone.
The city limits include the Redwood Shores neighborhood on the waterfront, which is physically separate from the rest of Redwood City and borders San Carlos and Belmont. The district houses the headquarters of Oracle Corp. and Electronic Arts. In the hills above the city lies the Emerald Hills neighborhood, a beautiful residential area that’s home to Edgewood Park & Natural Preserve and close to Interstate 280.
The median household income is $79,000, and the median home value is $765,000 according to 2013 U.S. Census Bureau data. Of the city’s 29,167 housing units, 52 percent are owner occupied.
