Chic design, stellar views, and endless creature comforts make this place in Tiburon a dream.
Perched on the southern tip of the peninsula, it's an artsy abode dressed in limestone and Brazilian cherry wood with essentially everything you could want: private gated entry, a steam room, and a stunning reflecting pool and outdoor infinity spa with panoramas of the city, the Bay, and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Stepping through the front double doors, you're met with a dramatic two-story foyer with a minimalist wood staircase whose snaking railing breaks the structured design with an organic flow. This lower level holds a guest bedroom with a spa-style en suite bath, exercise room, laundry room, and wine cellar that is temperature controlled, of course. To make your way up to the second floor, climb that pretty set of stairs or pop into the mahogany-clad elevator—if only there were a butler to press the button for you.
On the next level sits a bold kitchen with inky pendant lights, a granite island, wood paneling, and a glorious colossus of a pantry. There are also a slew of covetable appliances: a Sub-Zero refrigerator, two Wolf ovens, a Thermador warming drawer, a Miele dishwasher, and a Jenn-Air trash compactor. The casual dining area is encased in glass and opens up to the front patio and lawn via French doors that open onto sweeping views, which are also shared with the adjacent family room with its linear gas fireplace spanning an entire wall.
Next there the great room at the heart of the home, where a formal dining area has a glass bauble chandelier and the living space is designed to make you feel as if you're floating above the bay. Naturally it's surrounded by massive windows to take in vistas of SF, Angel Island, and the Marin Headlands—these are truly sweeping panoramas, people. Along the northern end of the room is a glass wall peering into the reflecting pool with swimming koi; and just beyond that are three more bedrooms, each with Brazilian cherry closets, en suite baths, and access to the lawn and patio with its circular skylight and firepit.
Finally, we make our way to the master suite, which you could easily think of as your own private spa. It, too, has views to write home about, but also a huge walk-in closet. Shoe addicts, brace yourselves: There is a separate closet just for you. The bathroom is plenty luxurious with its own steam room, a shower built for two, and a free-standing tub thatlooks out over the pool and ocean. Double doors open up to a private stone patio with blue mosaic infinity spa. This is living.
