Magnificent Belvedere Island Waterfront Residence Features Stunning Views￼
Featured in Architectural Digest, this world class residence showcases panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the entire skylines of San Francisco and Sausalito. A magnificent masterpiece in a dramatic setting, this property has a most prestigious location and is comprised of a ±8,131-square-foot home on a ±0.67-acre lot. It features four bedrooms, five full baths and two half baths. This work of architectural art was designed by the world-renowned architect Charles Gwathmey and boasts spectacular outlooks from every corner of the expansive 4-level floor plan. The primarily vertical organization of this house takes advantage of its sloped site on the southern coast of Belvedere Island.
The uppermost level contains a 3-car garage with glass doors, an elevator which descends to a courtyard where you will find a detached one-bedroom, one-bath guest house and a spacious wine cellar. The main house’s three remaining levels are situated between two large retaining walls which follow the site’s natural contours and splay outward toward the Bay. The house’s compact organization within the precinct formed by the retaining walls ensures privacy.
An interior circular staircase winds around an elevator and forms a cylindrical focal point. A barrel-vaulted ceiling articulates the living and dining room at the entry level of the main house, and a large deck projects towards the bay, extending the space into the landscape. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a study, and a two-story entertainment room occupy the intermediate floors, while a media room, a beautiful wet bar, a full bath with steam shower, and a sauna fill the lowest level which opens onto a spacious outdoor terrace with an infinity edge pool. The “infinity edge” of water establishes a poetic connection to the San Francisco Bay.
The interior floors are limestone and wide plank Bubinga wood, and the cabinets are lightly stained maple. The exterior is clad in gray stained cedar and a curved, standing seam, zinc roof. All exterior windows, doors, and decks are teak; all terraces are paved in beige or gray-flamed limestone; and the retaining walls are painted a warm white stucco.
Perched on the water’s edge of the San Francisco Bay with magnificent, panoramic views of the Bay Bridge, San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito, and Mt. Tam, this exquisite home offers extremely high quality materials and state-of-the-art smart house features. It is within walking distance of the San Francisco Yacht Club, Corinthian Yacht Club, and downtown Tiburon where you will find ferry services to San Francisco and Angel Island and dozens of fine restaurants, including Michael Mina’s Bungalow Kitchen, French Bistro Left Bank, an Italian restaurant at Café Acri, Sam’s Café, Caprice, and the upcoming Malibu Farm. The beautiful tip of Belvedere Island is known to be private and safe and boasts one of the best views in the world. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to acquire such a unique residence.
