13 Britton Avenue, Belvedere

Reminiscent of the great estates of Nantucket, this extraordinary shingle style residence offers an unparalleled blending of high-end, bespoke, designer finishes, and a fabulous family floor plan. Designed by one of Marin’s pre-eminent design teams, the home’s main living spaces are defined by soaring ceilings, all day light, and an open floor plan. Milled woodwork, fine moldings, the extensive use of white marble finishes, custom wall coverings, and chic lighting define the +- 3,980 square foot home. Sweeping views of the Belvedere lagoon, Belvedere Cove, bay, Angel Island, Corinthian Island, and hills of Tiburon are enjoyed from the home’s main level. The ideal floor plan includes a master suite and two additional bedrooms on the main level, ideal if someone wants one level living. Two additional bedrooms are located downstairs. The five bedroom, three and a half bathroom residence is perfectly site placed on a mostly level, very private +-3/10ths of an acre, and enjoys multiple level outdoor living spaces including a huge wrap around deck, ideal for entertaining, large, lower level brick terrace, sweeping level lawns, and playhouse. Gated and very private, the east coast style residence is located at the end of a completely level and very quiet cul-de-sac, on one of the island’s most desirable streets where homes rarely become available for sale. Located in the award winning K-8th grade Reed School District.
