225 Martinique Avenue, Tiburon

This outstanding +- 3,405 square foot “ground up” residence was completed as new construction in 2009, with more recent updating throughout. Designed by renowned architect Alfred Klyce, no detail has been spared in the handcrafted creation of a true residential work of art. Soaring ceilings, an open versatile floor plan, tall walls of glass that bring the outdoors in, and high-end, timeless designer finishes are seamlessly blended together. All public and most private rooms open to the outside. The one level residence is designed around a four-sided open-air atrium that is easily converted to an outdoor dining or living space if desired. The heart of the home is a magazine worthy grand scale great room that combines the beautifully designed high-end, designer kitchen, living, and dining areas with glass doors that open to the huge deck and water/marina. The 4 bedroom, 3 full bathroom residence is designed to host both large events as well as smaller, more intimate affairs. Perfectly site placed on a completely level +-1/4-acre waterfront property that is west facing, the beautifully designed outdoor living spaces include a private meditation garden, side yard with paddleboard/kayak storage (or dog run), huge deck, dock, and private slip for your own motorized boat. The residence enjoys easy access to a myriad of outdoor recreational opportunities including direct paddle board access to the bay, kayaking, boating, and hiking/biking at nearby Ring Mountain. Located in one of Tiburon’s most desirable neighborhoods which plays host to year-round parties and events for children and families, as well as the Tiburon Yacht Club (tyc.org), the residence also enjoys a very quick commute to Marin Montessori School, Marin Country Day School, and Highway 101. Located in the coveted K-8th grade Reed School District with bus access nearby.
