80 Century Drive, Mill Valley, CA
There’s buying a home and there’s buying a piece of architecture. This waterfront, modernist residence on Richardson Bay offers the best of both. Strikingly positioned on a half-acre at the southern tip of Mill Valley’s Strawberry Point with ceaseless views of the San Francisco skyline, Bay Bridge, Sausalito and Mount Tamalpais, the ±6,015-square foot home is surrounded by a panoply of nature just minutes from cosmopolitan San Francisco. The residence represents modern California architecture at its finest, featuring exteriors clad in rare, vertical grain tongue and groove western red cedar siding, walls of glass, floor-to-ceiling windows and stepped floorplans on each of the three levels, creating multiple limestone-tiled terraces and balconies.
Open floorplans are flooded with natural light that defines the home’s interiors which feature five bedrooms, six and one-half baths, a sleek Chef’s kitchen, formal living and dining areas, an au-pair/office suite with full bathroom and private entrance, media room, study, exercise room and grand double-height foyer. One of the many highlights of the home is the master suite, complete with sitting lounge, gas fireplace, two separate dressing areas , and dual baths with large Jacuzzi tub. The owners paid meticulous attention to details and finishes when constructing the design-driven home, resulting in the unexpected around every corner. A solar heated lap pool and spa invite relaxation in the backyard, as does a Zen path meandering through a manicured Oak grove gently cascading to private waterfront access. A true architectural gem awaits.
Total five bedrooms, six and one-half baths.
