340 Magee Avenue, Mill Valley

A rare opportunity presents itself in this new offering in Mill Valley’s highly desirable Middle Ridge. Completed as ground up-new construction in 2005, the residence was designed by visionary architect Chris Raker (www.rakerarchitects.com) with custom design finishes by famed artist Carl Dern. Raker’s contemporary design incorporates the timeless blend of incredible scale with soaring ceilings, all day light, artful finishes, and an optimal floor plan with all children’s bedrooms on one level.  The +- 4,740 square foot residence incorporates the extensive use of concrete surfaces, glass tiles, and tall walls of glass that are seamlessly blended to create a residential masterpiece of superior design. Perfectly site placed on a verdant +-7/10ths of an acre, the residence was designed for entertaining with indoor/outdoor living throughout.
