North of San Francisco, a mid-century style house on a quiet block in Kentfield, California, has been renovated to capitalize on Marin County’s many scenic wonders.
Skylights, soaring ceilings and tall walls of glass bring a sense of the outside in, while high-end designer finishes complete what listing agent Tracy McLaughlin of The Agency in Marin County said is reminiscent of iconic homes in the Hollywood Hills.
"The heart of the home is a magazine-worthy great room with incredible scale and light that opens directly to the recreational grounds, which include a beautifully designed in-ground pool and level lawns," Ms. McLaughlin said. The 3,880-square-foot residence, which has just sold, has a master bedroom and three additional bedrooms on the main level, while a two-room guest suite/fifth bedroom is located on the upper level, adjacent to a secondary family room.
The residence is situated on eight-tenths of an acre and is only blocks away from the area’s well-known hiking and biking trails.
"There are ‘reach out and touch" views of Mt. Tam, the San Francisco Bay and the surrounding hills from nearly every room in the house," Ms. McLaughlin said. "The home is perfectly placed to take advantage of indoor/outdoor living."
The 3,880-square-foot home has five bedrooms and four full bathrooms.
The home features myriad modern tech features, including a Nest thermostat, one-zone heating and air conditioning, a trenchless sewer system and an ADT security system. The in-ground pool has a new heater and the carport can hold two cars. There is additional off-street parking as well as bike storage on the side of the house.
Marin County is known not only for its proximity to San Francisco, but also its natural beauty. Nearby attractions include the Muir Woods National Monument, Mount Tamalpais State Park, The Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the Point Bonita Lighthouse and the Point Reyes National Seashore.
The home’s location makes it ideal as both a primary residence or as a weekend escape for city dwellers, according to Ms. McLaughlin. It’s also located in the award-winning kindergarten-8th grade Bacich School District.
