296 Margarita Drive, San Rafael

One of Marin County’s most influential families chose this spectacular site for the development of a world class Mediterranean influenced estate. Grand in scale with soaring ceilings, large public spaces, and sweeping water views, the +-5155 square foot residence offers a very flexible floor plan with indoor/outdoor living enjoyed throughout. Originally built by the highly reputable Kelly Pacific Builders, the residence can live on one level with the hotel like master suite easily accessible from all public living spaces. Designed for entertaining and hosting events, the 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom residence was perfectly site placed to enjoy wrap around bay and bridge views. Much of the home has been recently updated and shows beautifully throughout. Resort like, the stunning +-1 acre grounds offer a vacation at home experience with a beautiful in-ground pool, spa, large Bocce court, fire pit, stunning mature trees and plantings, an outdoor kitchen, and elevated gazebo for hosting events at the pool. Very quiet and extremely private, the residence is approached with a long, estate like driveway and offers a very quick commute location to Highway 101.
