The Hill Haven neighborhood of Tiburon is one of the most desirable in the Bay Area, sought after for large private lots, sunny southern exposure, signature Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco and Bay views, close proximity to downtown Tiburon and easy access to all that the Bay Area has to offer. Cutting–edge custom homes such as this are rare on such premium parcels.
Tasteful, modern lines greet you. Exterior walls finished in Pacific Red Cedar, framed by white stucco fascia and stainless steel architectural elements inspire as you approach the entry. An artisan created stainless steel water feature leads to an open-air corridor and a ten-foot tall wooden entry door. Over the door is a custom stainless steel framework that carries into the interior, encompassing two entryway skylights. These unifying elements set the tone for the experience beyond the door.
When you enter this dramatic home, your eye is naturally drawn through the spacious great room to the soaring views beyond the eleven-foot glass Nana walls. An incredible panoramic outlook to the finest views in the Bay Area are on full display. The San Francisco skyline, large areas of open water, the Golden Gate Bridge and Mount Tamalpais fill your view.
The extraordinary cantilevered steel frame construction allows for a floating, open corner to the room that provides an unrivaled integration of the interior with the outdoor spaces. The Nana doors retract, and two walls disappear, expanding this generous space onto a large deck with frameless glass railings.
The entry hall floors are finished in imported Italian flamed granite. A sculptural ceiling light fixture illuminates the front hall and brings to life the gorgeous color integrated Venetian plaster walls. The main room floors are finished in wide-plank white oak floors. The floor areas around the Nana doors are framed in a band of flamed granite that is featured in the entry. A custom floor-to-ceiling, see-through glass panel fireplace separates the dining and living areas and creates a welcoming atmosphere. The open concept great room combines living, dining and kitchen areas in a unified space.
The powder room walls are finished in beautiful Italian Statuario marble slab and floors in French flamed granite slab.
The combination of the book-matched olivewood millwork, soaring cedar acoustical ceiling, clean white counter tops and custom cabinetry with polished stainless hardware creates an artistic statement. A large center island with Caesarstone counter tops offers seating for informal meals, ample prep area and a large stainless sink with a touch sensitive faucet. A Miele dishwasher with “knock to open” technology is located next to the sink. Miele’s largest stand-alone freezer and refrigerator are built into the wall behind the island for easy access, blending into the surrounding cabinetry. A Miele coffee machine and microwave are also built in. This kitchen is designed to support grand scale entertaining.
Artfully designed to blend away behind the rear kitchen wall is the incredible butler’s pantry. This useful space is ideally set up to prepare meals and offers an incredible amount of storage space. This area is equipped with a prep sink, double ovens with warming drawers and a second dishwasher.
A generous outdoor kitchen and entertaining area is easily accessed from the main kitchen. A formed concrete counter has a built-in gas BBQ, satellite cook-top, storage drawers and refrigerator. There is ample space for an outdoor dining area if so desired.
The impressive master suite is conveniently located on the main floor close to the great room. A bespoke olivewood bed is centered in the room, taking advantage of the straight-on Golden Gate Bridge view. Eleven-foot, floor to ceiling glass Nana walls frame the views and open for seamless access to a private deck with frameless glass railings. A custom two-sided fireplace creates a glimpse into the bathroom. Above the fireplace is a vertical slab of limestone sunken into the wall, creating a tasteful element that ties into this home’s stone theme. Spacious double walk-in closets are outfitted by California Closets.
The high quality of finishing used in the master bathroom is something rarely seen. The walls and floors are finished in large slab limestone, specially sourced from France. Radiant heat warms the stone floors. A monolithic center wall of hydra treated black granite framed in limestone divides the large space. On one side, a single-piece limestone vanity with double sinks and high-end fixtures is accentuated by olivewood. On the other is a dramatic open shower with a ceiling mounted rain fixture, creating a luxurious experience as you take in views of the Golden Gate Bridge. A sunken stainless steel tub is a few steps away separated from the shower space by a custom teak bench. This space opens onto the master deck through Nana doors creating a true indoor-outdoor bathing experience.
Family Room and Office
Cutting edge architectural elements flow throughout this home. The central interior design element is the distinctive stainless steel and glass staircase with solid oak steps. A twenty-foot vertical window reveals the views and outdoor spaces as you descend. This dramatic feature frames and illuminates the staircase as it leads you to the family room below.
To the side of the staircase is a continuous wall finished in bush hammered travertine tile that artistically ties the main level to the family room below. Ten-foot glass Nana doors retract and lead to the infinity pool and back yard. Bespoke olivewood shelves finish the opposite wall, providing an artwork display and central entertainment area.
Behind the family room on a raised level is spacious office with a glass partition wall that allows views through the family room to the outdoors. A full bath finished in Italian limestone and leathered granite serves the office and the family room. The laundry room has great storage, counter space and is equipped with Miele “little giant” washer and dryer.
Guest Suite and Bedrooms
The guest-suite features Golden Gate Bridge views through ten-foot Nana walls. An Ipe deck leads to the infinity pool and yard area beyond. The cantilevered steel frame construction allows for another open corner experience. A custom olive wood bed that echoes the master suite bed is also centered on the views.
The guest bathroom walls and floors are finished in an incredible honed limestone from Canada. This extremely hard stone is not found anywhere else on Earth and has a dark, wood-grain quality. The custom counter and sink are integrated into one piece, cast in grey concrete that blends with the Limestone.
Continue from the guest suite past the family room and staircase to a hallway finished in beautiful olivewood cabinetry. The Vantage smart-home control system is housed in one side, leaving a great amount of storage in the remainder of the space. Centered in the middle of the cabinetry is a recessed marble counter and art feature wall.
The two additional bedrooms are located at the end of the hallway. Each room features Golden Gate Bridge views through ten-foot sliding doors that lead to the rear deck and yard area. Roomy closets are outfitted with built-in storage.
There is a shared bathroom between the rooms finished in gorgeous honed grey Italian marble slab. The wall in the shower room features a honed semi precious stone slab from Canada framed in the grey marble.
The outdoor spaces are beautifully integrated with the indoor spaces to create an environment perfect for grand entertaining or private enjoyment with family and friends. Two dramatic decks with frameless glass railings are accessed from the main floor, one off of the great room and one from the master suite. When the Nana doors are retracted these spaces become a natural extension of the interior.
This gorgeous half-acre property has an expansive natural terrace creating the perfect rear yard. The lower floor effortlessly flows out to this space. An Ipe deck wraps around the backside of the house from the guest suite on one end to the outdoor shower on the other. The deck steps down to the lawn and infinity pool patio and leads up to the spa terrace above the outdoor shower. Formed concrete stairways with custom stainless steel railings connect the lower terrace to the outdoor kitchen. An additional stairway connects the spa area up to the driveway and main entry.
Mature landscaping beautifully encompasses and accentuates the home.
