This exceptional French-Swiss chalet which stands at 40 Pine Street in San Carlos was built by Nathaniel Brittan in the 1870’s. The Brittan family was one of the original land owners in San Carlos.  If you are looking for Old World architectural detail blended with a contemporary remodel, this may be the home for you.  This home is only one of a few in the entire city that pre-date 1900.  The home has been meticulously cared for over the years and has been extensively remodeled. This home is listed by John Shroyer of Remax and is priced at $1,898,000.  Just some of the historic features of this home are:

*  The front door is made of solid French oak and it was brought to San Carlos from “Around the Horn” in Normandy, obviously before the Panama Canal was designed.

*  One of the fireplaces is adorned with San Francisco Cobblestones and an original Brittan family keystone.

*  The original carriage house still stands on the property.

Below are just a few of the photos of this truly historic property:
