Don’t Miss The 35th Annual CSL Kitchen Tour On May 15th


If you’ve ever been curious to check out some of the Bay Area’s most distinctive homes, now’s your chance. The Community Service League (CSL) of San Mateo’s 35th annual Kitchen Tour is giving 650 people the opportunity to explore five meticulously renovated and newly built homes in Hillsborough and San Mateo.

Taking place Friday, May 15, between 10am-3pm, the self-guided tour gives participants the chance to size up the properties and sample delicious snacks from local food artisans in each location’s gardens. Several artists will also demonstrate their work at each stop, and the tour’s accompanying program guide will contain a comprehensive list of Bay Area businesses specializing in all things design.

The main attractions along the tour represent a wide variety of architectural styles and aesthetic sensibilities. From a recently remodeled 1927 English country home to a newly-built Santa Barbara Mediterranean, the homes are all unique, chic, and breathtaking. Also among the highlights are a 1928 traditional English Tudor, and a 1940s split-level home completely re-done in 2013 to reflect a sleek, modern style.

To reserve your spot, purchase tickets online at the CSLSM website or head to one of these local retailers: Pottery Barn, the Studio Shop, Calico, and Pot-Pourri in Burlingame, Draeger’s Market home department in San Mateo, and Da Vinci Marble in San Carlos. Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 the day of the tour, and proceeds benefit Mental Health Association of San Mateo County and StarVista Crisis Intervention & Suicide Prevention Center.
