Rarely found in Tiburon: contemporary design,
top-quality finishes, and sweeping water views.

design

While the striking design by Rizzo Associates seems lifted from the pages of a modern architecture magazine, the home nonetheless blends perfectly with the wooded surroundings and offers an interior layout ideal for both casual living or grand entertaining.

finishes

 From custom kitchen cabinetry of exotic woods to a subway tile backsplash and Caesarstone counter tops, every detail has been carefully considered.

Views

 Multiple decks and large expanses of glass offer magnificent bay views of the picturesque marina, sailboats anchored in nearby Paradise Cove, or a dramatic sunrise over the East Bay hills.

 

Entrance to the home is via a formal foyer with stone floors and a dramatic custom light fixture. A large entry closet provides ample storage for shoes, outerwear, and sporting equipment, while an additional closet under the stairs is tailor-made for wine storage. From the foyer, a large elevator offers easy access to the main floor when carrying groceries or pushing a stroller.

A few steps away is a private guest, in law, or au pair suite with high ceilings, water and marina views, and large walk-in closet. This bedroom's full-size en suite designer bath includes custom quartz vanity, oversize glass-walled shower with subway tile design, and designer fixtures.

 

 
 

Stepping onto the main level from the wide staircase or via the elevator, you are immediately struck by the gallery-like feel of the soaring ceilings and wide expanses of glass. A chic living room, warmed by a floating gas fireplace, is ideal for relaxing with the day's reading or chatting with friends and family.

 
 

Designer sconces mark the broad passage to the grand-scale great room at the heart of the house. Here, a designer chef’s kitchen is built around an oversize center island topped with Caesarstone and accented by stainless steel inlays; one side offers bar seating for four, while the other includes a large sink, built-in Wolf microwave with motorized drawer, and a Miele dishwasher. The island is backed by a long expanse of cabinetry of exceptional exotic wood, accented by immaculate white Caesarstone counter tops, a contemporary subway tile backsplash, and undercabinet LED lighting. Full-length power strips under the upper cabinets offer hidden receptacles for counter top appliances. Make short work of the most demanding cooking projects with a six-burner Wolf range (with convenient pot filler), griddle, a pair of 36" Wolf convection ovens, and side-by-side Sub-Zero refrigerator. Meal clean up is a breeze thanks to the second sink and Miele dishwasher on the "peninsula" between kitchen and dining room. A large walk-in pantry is ideal for party prep and storage and offers a utility sink and full-size Samsung washer and dryer.

 
 

Adjacent to the kitchen, the expansive family room transforms into an enormous indoor/outdoor space by sliding the floor-to-ceiling glass doors in to the wall. Perfectly laid out for media consumption, the family room includes a Caesarstone-topped A/V cabinet, surround speakers in the ceiling, and enough wall space for the largest flat screens on the market. The grand terrace, ideal for year-round entertaining, offers sweeping views of the Bay, Paradise Cove, and the hills of the Tiburon peninsula; a large patio closet provides space for outdoor furniture storage and a gas hookup for grill or fire table.

 
 

A second wall of sliding glass connects the fabulous open dining room with the exterior balcony, offering myriad options for al fresco or indoor dining. Clerestory windows opposite the glass doors provide a soothing touch of greenery to set off the stunning water views.

 
 

Conveniently located on the main level, the hotel-like master suite includes a contemporary floating gas fireplace, high ceilings, and two glass doors that open on to a private exterior balcony. A short hallway leads to a huge walk-in closet with custom aspen-finish cabinetry, tons of hanging space, and locking jewelry drawers. The master bathroom has the feel of a luxury spa, with a freestanding modern tub, custom wall-hung double vanity with Caesarstone slab, custom-tiled walk in rain shower with garden views, and a private toilet closet. Spectacular water views cap the zen-like experience.

 
 

Lined with floor-to-ceiling glass, the upper hallway's elevated position in relation to the gorgeously landscaped backyard makes you feel as if you are strolling an elevated greenway. To the left, two generously sized bedrooms, both with ample closet space, offer panoramic views of the Bay and Paradise Cove to the south. A designer full bathroom includes custom double vanity with Caesarstone slab, a shower-over tub with custom tilework, and designer lighting. At the end of the hall, a light-filled third bedroom — currently configured as a lounge — could also serve as an office, nursery, or additional media room. From here a glass door opens on to a private wraparound deck.

 
 

At more than 1/2 acre, the professionally-landscaped grounds offer both flat open space and beautiful wooded slopes. A winding path leads to a large upper yard with the opportunity for an in-ground pool. Multiple old-growth oaks offer dappled shade and multiple sturdy branches to hang a hammock or rope swing. Behind the house, a wide gravel path is lined with mature rock rose and birds of paradise; in the evening flush-mounted wall LEDs provide gentle path lighting.
