Property Description

This stunningly designed and well-presented home in one of Marin’s most desirable neighborhoods is an architectural jewel. The consolidation of the heritage of this turn-of-the-century Queen Anne Victorian and the finest of today’s design and finishes incorporates the best of old and new. As you open the front door you are led down a gracious hallway with an inviting living room to the left. The high ceilings and window seats add to the charm. As the sunshine pours in, the room is flooded with light. The adjacent family room leads to a confection of a kitchen and casual dining area with French doors leading to the lush grounds and pool. The formal dining also has access to the outside. Outside you will feel as if you are at a 5-star resort featuring a pool, spa, Bocci Ball, vegetable beds and a pizza oven. A separate guest cottage is secluded above the pool area. Viewing this home is a unique experience not to be missed.
