1 Belvedere Avenue, Belvedere

A very rare opportunity presents itself in the offering of Belvedere Island's iconic address, "1 Belvedere Avenue".  The property consists of approximately 37,000 square feet of land, and is perfectly site-placed on one of the island’s most desirable locations. Originally designed by Aaron Green (www.agaarchitects.com) in 1964, who collaborated with Frank Lloyd Wright on several west coast projects, the residence is steeped in architectural distinction. The current owners, who acquired the residence in 2007, have spent eight years creating plans for an updated modern masterpiece. Architect Jon Peterson of Design Conspiracy (www.designconspiracy.com) has designed a spectacular ±8,062 square foot redwood, stone, and glass residence which honors the original design but provides a floor plan and suggested finishes for the most discriminating buyer. Plans were fully approved by the city of Belvedere and will need to be re approved by the new owner. Views extend from the Strawberry area, to the marinas of Sausalito, to both towers of the Golden Gate Bridge. The exquisite grounds reveal old growth trees, mature landscaping, and a proposed new pool, spa, and ample hardscape for outdoor entertaining and large scale events. Additionally, the house has been designed for the top floor great room to open onto a scenic terrace that optimizes the sweeping water views. The residence offers the unique duality of quiet and privacy, with the conveniences of being very close to town with access to Tiburon's famed shops and restaurants, and the 20 minute ferry into San Francisco.
