355 Belvedere Avenue Stinson Beach CA 94970
This Richardson-Pribuss Architect designed home was rebuilt from the studs up in 2018 by Hadley of Belvedere. A Modern Farmhouse style, everything from the roof and copper trimming to the RWR Construction foundation is of the highest quality and standard. Situated on half an acre in the secluded Highlands of Stinson Beach, it is steps from the trails of Mount Tamalpais State Park with unrivaled proximity to preserved open space and miles upon miles of hiking trails, while being only a ten minute stroll to the beach.
Upon entry, the eye is drawn to the cathedral ceiling and twenty feet of Fleetwood glass doors that completely open out onto the ipe decks for quintessential California indoor-outdoor living. The open concept dining and living space capture the stunning Pacific Coast views from San Francisco all the way up to Bolinas. With a ceiling mounted audio system from Sound Vision, it is a home designed for entertainment.
This light filled home offers a walnut chef’s kitchen by Inverness based Cabinetmaker, John Edmondson. A six burner Wolf professional range, a large island with stainless steel sink, and Caesarstone countertops complete the modern farmhouse look. Minimalist grey tile flooring is laid throughout the house. Electronically controlled shades in charcoal twill, in addition to the beach stone gas fireplace with white Caesarstone surround offer warmth and comfort on the best winter stormy ocean evenings.
A modern art metal and wood staircase leads to the large loft. With stellar south facing views of the rocky shores of west Marin, it is currently being used as a library, office and extra bedroom.
The primary bedroom has a wall of custom walnut cabinetry hidden behind white doors. The walls open again onto the ipe deck. The attached bath is spacious and bright with custom Ilse Crawford inspired Milan forest green tile walls and again custom cabinetry in addition to a huge linen cupboard. The upper level custom entry door in Douglas Fir, reveals the hidden guest bathroom and storage cabinet.
The lower level is reached by concrete steps inlaid with stairway lights and a stainless steel handrail. Passing by the beautifully terraced yard with an abundance of fruit trees and again, breathtaking views of the ocean, entry is through Fleetwood doors to the light-filled apartment below. Suitable for teenagers, or as an in-law or guest studio, it provides all the necessary independent comforts of life. A small custom walnut kitchen with a Wolf Convection Microwave Oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator and a full laundry, in addition to the full bathroom with Milan Forest Green tile, finish off the details.
A detached 400 square foot garage and RWR sweeping driveway provide ample parking, room for a workshop, a gym, or indeed another guest room.
