Experience the crown jewel of the Kent Woodlands
December 28, 2018 | SFGate
With its sauna, outdoor shower, pool and spa, 421 Crown Road in Kentfield evokes comparisons to a Wine Country getaway.
The recently completed four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom home isn't merely an assortment of luxurious touches, it's also a thoughtfully designed contemporary with a flowing floor plan, soaring ceilings and striking views of Mount Tamalpais from nearly every room.
"It's something straight out of Dwell Magazine," said Tracy McLaughlin of Compass, referring to the publication that showcases innovative designs and unique architecture. "There's extensive use of milled woodwork, paneled walls, Moroccan-style tile work, planked oak flooring and tall walls of glass that seamlessly integrate the interior with the outdoor living spaces."
Miranda Abrams refinished the inviting floor plan accentuated by beamed ceilings and a skylight. Collapsible glass walls in the living and great rooms lead to the backyard. Three bedrooms, including one with a deck that overlooks the spa deck and pool, reside on the main level.
Abrams' flourishes include a wealth of built-ins. Custom shelving lines the laundry room, while the living room is home to floor-to-ceiling bookcases that flank a wood-burning fireplace.
Custom lighting brightens an open dining area that looks to the front garden. Caesarstone counters and custom tile work finish a kitchen anchored by an island with bar seating. High-end appliances and task lights lend functionality to the open kitchen that segues into the great room.
The two-story rests on nearly an acre, enjoying multiple decks, a level lawn and landscape lighting. A hot tub rests in an elevated deck pointed toward the mountain, while a large patio wraps around the pool. A concrete bunker that's ideal for wine storage accompanies the residence.
Dominating the upper level, the owner's suite rivals the accommodations of a high-end hotel. Bespoke lighting and large windows illuminate the graciously proportioned room. The carpeted suite includes a walk-in closet and custom wall paneling, as well as a glass door that opens to a private deck.
A marble floor, walk-in shower and custom dual vanity finish the adjoining spa bathroom.
Air-conditioning cools the main level, while two zones of heating provides energy efficiency. In addition to a two-car garage, the listing also provides a wealth of off-street parking for multiple vehicles.
