Contemporary Luxury with Unparalleled Views
Astounding panoramic vistas spanning 8 Bay Area counties and the glistening San Francisco Bay set the backdrop for this testament to modern architectural achievement.
The apex of luxury Northern California living, this 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath, 4,611 sq. ft., streamlined “Dwell Home” and guest house just 3 minutes from the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco is thoughtfully designed to optimize comfort, elegance, and the unparalleled natural beauty of the Marin Headlands.
Set nearly 1,000 feet above sea level in a private, wind-protected microclimate, this executive haven feels like an exclusive retreat, where breathtaking views and out-your-door access to the endless trails of the magnificent Golden Gate National Recreation Area are matched with the refined, thoughtful design of reputed architect Charlie Lazor.
Built in 2009 to critical acclaim, the relaxed, tranquil estate recently underwent a no-expense-spared update, enriching all aspects of the already exceptional property.
The light-filled main level has a spacious open-floor plan encapsulating an expansive living room, dining room, and chef’s kitchen. Throughout, strategic architectural design accentuates the glorious natural surroundings: Floor-to-ceiling mahogany-trimmed windows and sliding glass doors showcase unobstructed Bay views to the east. To the west, 8-foot picture windows frame sections of an undulating, geologically magnificent chert-rock wall. To the north, full-height glass double-doors swing open to the courtyard and guesthouse. Radiant-heat terrazzo flooring and a grand, remote-controlled, “ribbon of fire“ Spark fireplace bring cozy warmth to sleek, sexy, surroundings. An expansive deck stretches the full length of the main level and overlooks the bay, providing the best of indoor-outdoor contemporary living.
Upstairs, radiant-heated Honduran mahogany floors and appointments continue through the four bedrooms, the library, and art gallery breezeway. The sumptuous, open floor plan master suite offers unobstructed views from the custom-crafted platform king bed, Italian Bisazza tile steam/shower, and deep 2-person Japanese soaking tub. The master suite is an oasis of elegance and spaciousness, smartly appointed with a dual-sink vanity, Jacuzzi towel warming drawer, custom cabinets, and adjoining 18-foot dressing room. Three additional bedrooms also celebrate the view: a second master and en-suite bath are accessed through a cozy library with built-in floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and 2 view decks, one of which offers a glimpse of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. Another bedroom is home-office-ready and the third features twin murphy beds and doubles as a great kids’ guest room, workout room, or nursery; all easily access a well-appointed guest bathroom and large laundry room with storage.
Across a blue-stone garden patio just steps from the main house stands the handsome, two-story, 1,080 sq. ft. guesthouse. This freestanding structure continues the property’s stunning trademark design, luxury appointments, and incredible San Francisco Bay Area vistas. A cozy home unto itself, the first floor has radiant heated concrete floors, a bar/kitchenette area and ample room for living and dining. Upstairs, a full bedroom suite with radiant-heat mahogany floors, a sitting area, built-in wardrobe, shower, and deep soaking tub.
In keeping with the exceptional appointments throughout this property, enjoy such modern conveniences and smart-home features as programmed LED lighting, a Tesla charging station, and wine storage for over 900 bottles. A newly paved road welcomes you to the home as well as updated native, drought-tolerant, and fire-resistant landscaping.
Located atop the Marin Headlands, a quick 3-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge and the Highway 101/Spencer Avenue Exit, this home provides the rare opportunity to live “away from it all” while having immediate, nearly traffic-free access to the city of San Francisco and Sausalito’s fine restaurants, cafes, and shopping. In rare opportunities like this you truly can have it all.
