Property Description

Step back into time while you enjoy a very rare opportunity to reside in this idyllic and unforgettable modern version of the 10th century Norman French-style Story Book home seemingly plucked from the pages of a child's bedtime story!

Designed by Carr Jones, his engineering prowess can be seen in the corbelling of curved lines of the tower and wide graceful archways of the living room and hallways, this residence is a homage to traditional English architecture and provides a picture-perfect definition of storybook style.

The original slate came from the Sierra Nevada Mountains. The brick was salvaged from a hotel that burned down in San Francisco and 80,000 were brought to Tiburon in railcars by barge. The wood rafters are from old ships. Even the mortar for the bricks was made using local beach sand. This was one of the first homes in the area to have radiant heat in the floors that is still working.

African Verde Chaine granite in striking greens, black and white covers the counters. There are two ovens, Sub Zero refrigerator and drawers, a Marvel bar refrigerator and two dishwashers (one in the pantry). Storage abounds in the butlers pantry. The turret is a sitting room with fireplace and is the only room upstairs. A wonderful glassed entry and connecting hallway lead to the four bedrooms and three baths. There is a half bath adjacent to the butlers pantry. The new section has two master suites with walk-in closets, marble showers and (1) with Jacuzzi tub. Both have luxurious Myson towel warmers. There is parking for six cars inside the gated property with a two-car garage and studio/office upstairs. The approximately 4600 sq. ft. house is on 1.09 acre property. There is extensive lawn area on the bayside to enjoy outdoor living and the breathtaking views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the bay and San Francisco.
