The adjacent custom kitchen features a Sub-Zero refrigerator, Miele dishwasher, a 5-burner La Cornue chef’s gas range, custom cabinetry, and a large copper farm sink. An additional bedroom (or office) on the main level overlooks the lush side garden.
Finally, the private owner’s suite includes a spacious light-filled bedroom with amazing views, an expansive walk-in closet, and a marble bath with a soaking tub, shower, and private water closet.
Downstairs, a welcoming guest bedroom with a big ensuite bath, a large custom-designed media/game room (or additional 4th bedroom), a 165-bottle refrigerated wine cabinet, and a charming private office or fitness room is perfect for family and friends. The rear garden, a botanical masterpiece, is fully irrigated and breathtaking. Tree ferns, palms, a mature Redwood tree, lavender, roses, and a curated collection of rare plants make this garden incomparable.

This a one-of-a-kind property has been totally updated. It is a special opportunity in the prime Banana Belt of Sausalito where blue skies prevail even when fog surrounds other areas of the city. Paradise.
