This outstanding Kent Woodlands legacy property offers the new owner/s a very rare opportunity to develop what would arguably be the finest estate in Marin County. The property was part of the founding Kent family’s original land acquisition, and commonly referred to over the years as the “Honeymoon Estate”. The Kent’s were known to parcel the very best properties in the Kent Woodlands land tract for their own family. 1 Orchard Way has long been considered one of Marin County’s preeminent properties and was in the same family for nearly sixty years. The completely private and quiet mostly level +- 1.2 acres magically combines old growth trees, meandering gardens, an existing in-ground pool, mature gardens, and a long, gated entrance with perfect site placement of both the existing home and proposed new residence. South facing with all day sun, the residence and property enjoy “reach out and touch” Mt. Tam views that are perfectly framed in almost every room of the proposed new residence. Originally built in 1934 by Roger Kent, the existing home is lovely as is, but affords the new owner/s an unrivaled development opportunity. The world class architectural firm of Robert A.M. Stern Architects, based out of New York, was engaged by the current owner to produce an unrivaled architectural vision for a shingle and stone east coast style estate. Grand in scale with soaring ceilings, a traditional but flexible floor plan, and fabulous entry sequence, the proposed residence would rival the great estates of the Hamptons. Located in the coveted flats at the end of a small cul-de-sac, the residence is walking distance to the Woodlands Store, local shops and restaurants, and in close proximity to all of the many recreational opportunities in the area including hiking, mountain biking, and running trails that extend from Mt. Tam to the Pacific Ocean.
