In San Rafael, $2.6 million buys a golf course property with hot tub

By

If you've got a few mil to spend on a house and have designs on something larger than a city shoebox, this modern estate in the flats of Peacock Gap has plenty of room to stretch your legs both indoors and out.

Set on a third of an acre overlooking the 7th and 8th tees of an 18-hole golf course, the 4,400-square-foot, five-bedroom house promises resort-style life.


With access to waterfront, tennis courts, and hiking trails, the home is teeming with designer finishes—think a Kelly Wearstler–inspired formal powder room with custom wall coverings, vanity, brass fixtures, and sconces; a chef's kitchen with Italian Snaidero cabinets, open white oak shelving, and Brazilian quartzite countertops with leather finish; and white oak herringbone floors throughout.

The floor plan was designed for grand entertaining and serious R&R. Intimate dinner parties can be held in the dining room with gallery lighting and glass doors that open onto an al fresco dining area. Ten foot ceilings, gas fireplace, and additional wet bar with floating shelves make up the formal living room for cozier affairs. Sweeping glass doors open up to the rear deck and outdoor living spaces for sun-soaked days.

Also on the ground floor are four bedrooms each with something special, be it a garden view, private sitting area, or access to the yard. Three bathrooms have handmade Ann Sacks tiles, oversized tubs, and porcelain tile floors.

Upstairs, the master suite feels like a luxe hotel suite with soaring ceilings, an indoor/outdoor glass gas fireplace, wet bar, and private terrace—it's the perfect getaway for reading, lounging, or watching golfers practice their swing. The bathroom has a large double vanity with Walker Zanger hand-cut stone tile, brass fixtures, a Carrara marble walk-in shower, and a spa-style tub. The walk-in closet has custom built-ins.

As if that weren't enough, the pool and outdoor space were designed by landscape architect Michael Yandle.
