65 Summit Road, San Anselmo

Inspired by the great country homes of Tuscany, this outstanding residence has long been identified as one of San Anselmo’s finest estates. The +-5520 square foot residence was completed twenty years ago as ground up/new construction by noted designer Mark Becker. The four bedroom, three and a half bathroom residence masterfully blends timeless, high-end design finishes that are reminiscent of Italy’s great villas. Curved stucco walls, rustic wood beams and posts, bespoke lighting, great scale, and fine fixtures grace the residence. The heart of the house is an outstanding great room that opens directly to a large balcony overlooking the resort like pool and outside living spaces. Additionally, there is a secondary family room/playroom that also opens directly to the pool area. The residence is perfectly site placed on a bucolic +- 3 acres and takes advantage of one of San Anselmo’s most dramatic views. Unrivaled water views are enjoyed from most of the home’s main rooms. The year-round greenbelt views extend from the back side of Bald Hill all the way to the East Bay. The recreational grounds rival a weekend home in Napa or Sonoma, and include a regulation bocce court, cutting/veggie gardens, a lap pool with attached spa, two exterior firepits, waterfall, level lawn, sport court, Oak and Olive trees, table grape vines, and mature plantings throughout. The residence was developed by the current owners for its unrivaled, immediate access to hiking, biking, and running trails right outside the front door! Gated, private, and very quiet.
