Featured in many architectural books and magazines, this Japanese-style home, located in Tiburon, recently hit the market at $6.5 million. The estate is surrounded by spectacular gardens, acres of forested open space, and panoramic Bay views. The home was designed to be a peaceful escape from the hectic pace of modern day life (it includes a meditation and Japanese ofuro-style soaking tub, after all).
The home's construction includes 20 different types of wood, sliding shoji paper doors, bamboo windows, and intricately handcrafted ceilings, floors, walls, and cabinetry. While the exterior of the estate is largely designed in authentic Japanese style, the interior features a sophisticated all-American kitchen, luxurious bedroom suites, sliding glass walls, marble and granite galore, and advanced electronic entertainment, lighting, wi-fi, and security systems.
