About This Property
Sold with multiple offers. This is truly a special property, located in the flats of Kentfield, on one of the largest lots in the neighborhood. This magical home sits on approximately 1.77 acres , with mature landscaping, oaks, redwood, circular driveway, inground pool, hot tub, detached 2 car garage, kids play structure, and lots of room to let your imagination roam.
The home was built in 1987 by architect James MacDonald for the Jan and Herb West who loved the Awahnee Hotel and wanted the same architecture to expose the best of the Marin surroundings. They hit the mark, beginning with the stature of the home, which sits back beyond the massive front gardens, and is as welcoming as any great home.
On the main level, all the rooms lead to a massive wrap around porch and either Mt Tam views on the front side of the house or your own secret getaway in the rear of the home. The living room has a massive fireplace and 2 story ceilings which beautifully frame Mt. Tam. The “office” has built in book cases, and lots of windows to take in the spectacular scenery, the formal dining room is located between the living room and kitchen and has massive doors leading to the wrap around porch dining area. The kitchen also has tall ceilings and lots of light and leads to a eat-in kitchen area, family room, pantry and laundry room.
Upstairs is the master bedroom suite. With its tall ceilings, and private deck it also overviews Mt. Tam and the beautiful trees and lawns. The master bath has a Jacuzzi tub, and oversized shower. His and hers walk in closets (with a laundry chute !) complete the top level of the home.
Downstairs there are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, storage closets, and a second family room, and access to the outside (one of the bedrooms could easily serve as a in-law or au pair suite.
This is one not to be missed!
