Designer Home Over San Francisco Bay in Prestigious Belvedere Location 

This waterfront showplace was a former home of award-winning designer Martin Kobus, which he fully renovated in 2011 and 2012. Known for creating warm, welcoming spaces showcasing his modern aesthetic, Kobus reimagined this bright, sunny home as a personal waterfront resort with high ceilings and hge windows to enjoy the breathtaking San Francisco Bay views. A Dutch native, Kobus studied design in the Netherlands and Italy, giving his work a distinctly European sophistication. Check out Martin’s other showcases and awards at

Located on the coveted west shore in Belvedere, this beautiful 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom waterfront home is approximately 3,000 square feet. It features a state-of-the-art kitchen with a huge Caesarstone countertop island. All bathrooms feature limestone floors and Caesarstone counters. The living room has a high ceiling, wall-to-wall windows and a large fireplace. 

The family room with TV and desk is conveniently situated next to the kitchen. The kitchen and dining room combo share a large fireplace and ample windows to take advantage of the spectacular view. Two bedrooms, each with a full bath, on the main floor, have direct access doors to the garden and the bay.

All rooms on the main floor open to the spacious, 1,000-square-foot waterfront deck for gracious entertaining. The second floor is reserved for the luxurious master suite with fireplace, walk-in his and hers closets, a cozy office area, and a terrace overlooking the bay.

Wide plank oak floors are installed throughout the entire home. Almost every room enjoys spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay, the city of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito, Mt. Tam, and beyond. The 2-car garage has storage and an access door to the back deck which overlooks the bay. A gated flat garden offers privacy and additional outdoor space.

West Shore Road is the flattest and widest street in Belvedere. It has ample off-street parking along with basketball hoops and Warriors NBA superstar Klay Thompson as a beloved neighbor. A boat dock may be built, subject to approval, as almost all homes on this street have boat docks. Belvedere West Shore is known as the best yachting location on San Francisco Bay, with easy access to Corinthian Yacht Club, San Francisco Yacht Club, Raccoon Strait, and Tiburon Yacht Club around the corner as well as Sausalito Yacht Club and St. Francis Yacht Club across the bay. Downtown Tiburon is within walking and biking distance, as are ferry services to San Francisco and Angel Island, and great restaurants with outdoor seating such as Michael Mina Bungalow Kitchen, Sam’s Cafe, Caprice, Luna Blue, Le Petite Left Bank, Rustic Bakery, Tiburon Tavern, Salt & Pepper, and the upcoming Malibu Farm. 

The home is fully furnished for rent and possible sale to serious buyers only. For details, text Olivia Decker at 415-720-5915 or email
