96 Avenue Del Norte, San Anselmo
Long regaled as one of Marin County’s most distinctive estates, 96 Avenue Del Norte, also known as “Heather Hill”, has been fully restored and shows beautifully throughout. Originally designed in 1934 by noted San Francisco architect Albert Farr (https://noehill.com/architects/farr.aspx), the current owners have completed a restoration of unparalleled scale and design.

European inspired, gracious, and highly distinctive architectural details are evident throughout, with the incorporation of intricate moldings, stucco walls, leaded windows, chic, designer lighting, high-end fixtures, and a new/er slate roof. Rare artisanal details have created an estate of massive distinction. The heart of the house is a grand scale living room that opens directly to the resort like grounds and exterior living spaces. Seamless indoor/outdoor living is enjoyed from the living and family rooms, offering ample opportunity for grand scale entertaining and hosting of both small and large events. 96 Avenue Del Norte is perfectly site placed on a sprawling and highly private +-4 acres with “reach out and touch” Mt. Tam, Mt. Baldy, and Seminary views.
