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.
Great weather, access to hiking and biking trails, good schools, and a strong, vibrant downtown make San Anselmo a desirable destination for Marin County homebuyers looking to live a little off the beaten track.
The neighborhood surrounding the San Francisco Theological Seminary is a quiet, leafy enclave of large, older houses with well-tended yards. Heading up Butterfield Road will take you to the rolling hills above San Anselmo and sweeping views of the open spaces, grasslands, and oak trees of northern Marin County. Downtown, locals get their fill of delicious food at MH Bread and Butter or Cucina and and shop for clothing, gifts and accessories in many of the downtown boutiques.
San Anselmo is a town made for strolling. Small shops and many restaurants line the main street, which backs onto the active San Anselmo Creek.
