3560 Paradise Drive, Tiburon , CA
The romance of the old world lives at this waterfront villa in Tiburon. Cascading down a hillside met by soft lapping waves of Tiburon’s eastern shore, this nearly 6,700 square foot estate evokes the grandeur of Italian and French villa living. Completely bespoke and built as a labor of love by its owners and architect Sandy Walker, the sprawling villa features a plethora of antique design elements including 200+ year old handmade terracotta tiles, an imported 18th century limestone staircase from the Loire Valley, reclaimed Italian hardwood floors, a horse trough turned fountain from San Remy, Provence, 400-year old roof tiles from Italy and France, and three limestone fireplaces dating to the 17th and 18th centuries. Completed in 2006, the main residence comprises two sprawling levels that are stepped in relation to the undulating grounds. Living and dining areas open to multiple terraces surrounded by established gardens shaded by manicured Live Oaks and Redwoods. Bay views abound, enjoyed from nearly every room, as well as multiple outdoor seating areas, meandering garden paths, and a sandy beach complete with a pier. Billiard room, library, separate guest quarters and rustic wine cellar with tasting room further add to the villa’s allure. Welcome to your timeless paradise.
