Grand View Estate Overlooks the San Francisco Bay
This magnificent grand estate of approximately 11,200 square feet has stunning views of Bay Bridge, San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito and Mt. Tam. It is sited on a double lot of approximately 1.2 acres amid lush gardens on the prestigious south side of Belvedere Island which offers the most exceptional setting in Northern California that brings phenomenal views to the forefront of the living experience, all in a beautiful and very private resort setting.
Rebuilt in 2008, this gated, contemporary style residence offers six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a 60-foot indoor pool, and entertainment area with multiple terraces to enjoy those world class views with two elevators and walkways connecting the levels and uniting indoor spaces with fabulous, landscaped gardens and sculptures.
When you enter through the 2-story atrium main entrance, glass walls flood the space with natural light and welcome guests with breathtaking views. A tour through the house takes you to a cozy, top floor office with fireplace and French doors that open onto a garden and lawn which look out to the Golden Gate Bridge and City of San Francisco.
Within the house, a majestic, formal living room with soaring ceilings, a wall of windows, fireplace, wet bar with temperature-controlled wine cellar, and outdoor terrace with panoramic views. Those stunning views continue to the dining room situated next to the spacious, open floor plan kitchen/family room/breakfast nook with fireplace and wall-to-wall glass doors opening to a deck overlooking gardens and the San Francisco Bay.
With an enormous, granite-topped center island and top-of-the-line appliances, this kitchen fulfills any chef’s dream. An adjacent media room with half-bath and separate entry opens to the front courtyard. The master suite features sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco, a fireplace, a deck, and an opulent bathroom exquisitely tiled in granite. Three more ensuite bedrooms located near the master suite are ideal for young children. A separate guest floor boasting two bedrooms and two baths, a sitting room with wet bar and kitchenette, and a terrace share those incredible views.
The estate’s luxurious, resort-like amenities are as impressive as the residence, offering the versatility to retreat in serenity or entertain with lavish events. The spa floor features a 60-foot, indoor pool with steam room, sauna, two bathrooms, a gym, an entertaining kitchen with dining area, wall-to-wall glass folding doors opening onto an enormous terrace with a tiled spa fit for the entire family, and outdoor dining overlooking the exquisite gardens and various terraces with seating areas on spacious view decks.
Ample parking is available within the two gates, plus a 3-car garage and three parking stalls by garden entrance. This distinctive property offers a tranquil garden with mature trees and meandering paths through fragrant, native shrubs and flowers. Home to owls, hawks, and hummingbirds, the garden also affords sweeping views. This is a unique, modern estate that combines privacy, exclusivity, serenity, breathtaking views, lush gardens, and resort-like amenities in the most exclusive Belvedere location. ■
