5 Beds • 3.5 Baths • 5,375 SF • 23,085 SF Lot • Completed in 1994 •
Perfectly sited to capture sweeping post card views of San Francisco, the Bay and Mt. Tamalpais, this impressive Mediterranean custom home offers privacy and an excellent location, about 7 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. The stately entrance, surrounded by blooming level gardens, highlights the stucco exterior and traditional tile roof. Enter the front gate to the courtyard, and the scale of the home comes into view.
With oversized front door and clerestory windows, the entry foyer dazzles with a magnificent crystal chandelier. In keeping with the grand scale, the formal living room’s soaring wood beamed ceiling, oak hardwood flooring and plentiful arched windows open to a south balcony. The adjacent formal dining room accesses the front patio – with both rooms taking in the expanse. A powder room and wet bar, opening to the eat in kitchen, serve these public rooms.
In the roomy eat-in kitchen, the appliances include a Wolfe range with grill, Subzero side by side refrigerator, wall ovens and WhisperKool 2500 wine cooler holding 500 bottles. West facing, and opening to an ipe deck, you can almost hear the water lapping while enjoying sunsets behind Mt. Tamalpais. Custom cabinetry includes the handy pantry/spice racks, working desk and two sinks - floors are oak hardwood.
The primary suite in this home does not disappoint. Spectacular western views, a gas fireplace, sitting area and access to the ipe deck make for high stakes luxury. The elegant bath is light drenched with skylights stretching the length, and the adjacent walk-in closet offers plenty of room to custom organize.
Down the hall, the handsome private office with a gas fireplace circulates with two separate entrances. A private guest suite with plentiful closet space and its own private bath is located here as well.
Downstairs are two bedrooms sharing a jack and jill bathroom with double sinks, and a third bedroom - all good sized. Even the laundry room wows due to its size and storage capacity, along with the adjacent storage room. Here also is the passive wine cellar with room for a café tasting table. Upstairs is the second office with added privacy and spectacular views.
Given Southern Marin’s Mediterranean climate, the wide expanse of southern exposure and level nature of this lot, the grounds offer delight all year long with the blooming trees and shrubbery. It’s easy to imagine a Bocci ball court, putting green, potential pool or splendid grass lawns.
After exiting the freeway, the short, mostly waterfront drive to this neighborhood is so relaxing and scenic. Surrounded by good company of understated yet significant homes, the neighborhood feels quiet yet friendly. Homes don’t often trade, and many owners have put down strong roots. Rarely does a home of this caliber in views, design, grounds and location become available. This is a place for either grand scale entertaining or casual comfort, sophisticated small-town charms, and the sheer pleasure of taking in the ever-changing views of San Francisco.
