Perched at the top of a small private road in Sausalito’s Banana Belt, this classic, shingled, Sausalito home is rich in history. Built in 1885 this house is truly one of Sausalito’s hidden treasures. Its magnificent views span from Angel Island thru Sausalito Harbor north to Mt Tamalpais - views which originally gave the house its name: The Mira Mar.
Situated on a 1/3 acre parcel, defined by mature landscaping in multiple gardens, these exterior areas are united together by crushed granite pathways- the combination of which creates a tranquil, old-world European flair much like you would find on the coast of Italy or France.
Owned and remastered by San Franciscan boutique architect, David Williams is renown for combining natural elements with craftsman contemporary design. This property beautifully integrates tradition with innovation, Sausalito history with the architectural conveniences of modern day living. Ten foot ceilings and spacious rooms with oversized picture windows provide generous views from period-inspired rooms with crown moldings and hand-crafted wood touches. The newly renovated chef’s kitchen is every entertainer’s dream complete with a built in galley bench that offers 360 degree views of the property. All lower level rooms have easy access to the outdoor gardens, aged red-brick patios, and general view promenade under giant old-growth heritage oak trees.
This four bedroom, three bath home also includes a full height basement ready to finish into a theatre room, office, game room or for those with a whet appetite – a wine cellar! Brazilian cherry and natural hardwoods, Italian Carrera Marble and Portuguese Limestone are just a few of the custom finishes used throughout the home.
Designed by local textile artist Christy Williams, wife of architect and owner David Williams, the home has received many accolades in garden shows both locally and regionally and was once one of ten select homes on a garden tour “Framing a View”. The property also includes a separate guest bungalow, two car detached garage and parking for five cars off street. Rarely will you find such dazzling views, ample outdoor living space and an artistically and carefully designed home with a rich historical heritage in the heart of Sausalito’s desired banana belt. A truly unique opportunity to own one of Sausalito’s gems.
