This 5BD/4.5BA home has been published in House Beautiful — because it truly is — with its artful blending of designer, modern finishes and European vintage accents within a timeless floor plan.
Spacious gathering spots include the formal living room and dining room, covered veranda and inviting poolside patio. The stunning, kitchen features an antique, French built-in armoire, vintage lights from a Dutch ship and an absolutely stunning La Cornue stove. The honed Calacatta marble countertops balance beautifully with the walnut island. Adjacent to the kitchen is a large family room and secondary dining area with coffered ceilings and French doors opening onto the veranda and pool area.
Illuminated with a custom-built skylight and stunning chandelier, stairs ascend to a spacious Owner’s Suite with a spa-like bath and private balcony featuring views of Mt. Tam. The floor plan is optimal, with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths on the upper level, and 1 bedroom and 1.5 baths tucked away with its own entrance on the main level.
The lush grounds are well-appointed with extensive use of Connecticut blue stone and a private well for irrigation. Gorgeous landscaping delights year-round and includes fruit trees, roses, a vegetable garden and a fire pit and playhouse area. The pool setting is reminiscent of a private resort. Vacation at home!
Easy access to the Ross K-8 School, hiking and biking trails galore as well as the local neighborhood pool and tennis club, The Priory.
Nestled in the foothills of Mt. Tam, Kentfield makes up for what it lacks in size with natural forested beauty and the charm of upscale, businesses serving the local residents. Woodlands market and café act as an unofficial town square and local treasure. And just down the street lives the nationally recognized Rustic Bakery flagship location, perfect for a morning coffee, a decadent California cuisine lunch, or for placing an order of artisanal baked goods for an upcoming event. Guest House Woodfire Grill & Cocktail Bar provides an elegant sprinkle of nightlife to the vibrant community. And to balance out all the spectacular eats, Kentfield makes room for athletic hobbies galore. Hikers, bikers, and dog-lovers have no shortage of accessible trails; one alongside a stunning creek, and many more up into the hills under a glorious canopy of redwoods. Beyond the great outdoors, locals indulge their interests with a wide variety of day, evening, and weekend classes at the local community college, College of Marin; dance, language, ceramics, and chemistry included. Each neighborhood in Kentfield, such as Kent Woodlands, McAllister and Murray Park, and Laurel Grove, offers a unique sense of community that feels effortless to find a sense of home within. Kentfield and Greenbrae share a school district.Learn More
