French countryside feels in Marin County? Oui, please!
On a lush lot with meandering paths in the Del Mesa area of Kentfield, this classically European-style home was built in 1932 and maintains signature characteristics such as a slate-hipped roof and painted shutters framing a multitude of picture windows with views of wooded surrounds. Inside, high ceilings make for airy living spaces that highlight the outdoors.
The main floor is made up of spacious areas to cook, dine, and relax. The formal living room has recessed lighting in a tiered ceiling design and is anchored by a marble fireplace; a pair of doors opens onto a patio. A windowed archway here offers passage into a verdant atrium and yet another terrace.
Newly renovated, the kitchen has abundant storage via floor to ceiling cabinets as well as a custom built-in refrigerator and an extra large oven with six-burner range. The formal dining room is equally bright and large enough to seat at least 10 people. The breakfast room is ideal for a more casual bite.
One bedroom and bathroom round out the first floor.
There are three bedrooms and two freshly renovated bathrooms upstairs. The master suite has two closets and a soothing bathroom with a standalone soaking tub situated under a little arched window. The primary also has views of Mt. Tam.
Got kids? This house resides in the coveted Ross school district.
