311 Summit Avenue , San Rafael

An unparalleled opportunity presents itself in the offering of this outstanding turn of the century Country Club estate. Originally part of the Rose Estate, the +- 3,800 foot residence has undergone a substantial renovation with high-end, designer finishes throughout. Classic architectural lines, great scale, all day light, and large public living spaces define the five bedroom, three and a half bathroom residence. The highly skilled design team who executed the renovation has combined the extensive use of period details, milled woodwork, and classic, timeless finishes throughout. The public rooms offer a myriad of year round entertaining opportunities. The parklike grounds are unparalleled. The current owner’s landscape design unveils a consistent visual display of texture and color throughout the +- 2.25 acre parcels. The extensive use of stone walls and bluestone walkways compliments the overall garden design. Completely private and very quiet, the property is just minutes from San Rafael’s many desirable shops and sophisticated restaurants, and a very quick commute on Highway 101 to downtown San Francisco.
