June 22, 2019 | Cottages & Gardens
Marin County's Honeymoon Estate located in the Kent Woodlands is on the market, offering the new owner a change to own and develop for $6.5 million. Located at 1 Orchard Way, the property has long been considered one of Marin County's preeminent properties and was owned by the Kent family for over 60 years. Originally built in 1934 by Roger Kent, this estate has garnered some attention over the years, and now buyers are flocking since it's been on the market.
Nestled underneath Mount Tamalpais, almost every room of the proposed residence gives reach out and touch views of the mountain. The home faces south allowing every room to receive all day sun giving the home a warm and inviting feel.
As lovely as it is, the proposed residence affords the new owner/s an unrivaled development opportunity. The world-class architectural firm of Robert A.M. Stern Architects, from New York, was asked by the current owner to create a new vision for a shingle and stone East Coast style estate. Grand in scale with tall, soaring ceilings, traditional but also flexible floor plan, and a beautiful entry sequence, the residence would most likely rival the estates of the Hamptons.
The proposed floor plan includes a stunning chefs kitchen, a grand scale formal dining room that overlooks the rear yard and gardens, outdoor kitchen, four bedrooms with a master suite. Additional features include an in-ground pool, large spa, luscious gardens, a walk-in wine cellar, and much more.
