Modern Sanctuary in Hill Haven
Innovative modern architecture nestled in an inspiring Tiburon hills setting. This newly constructed 5000 sq.ft., five bedroom, five bath contemporary home is a statement of refined style and cutting edge technology, fused with privacy in a natural setting. Located on an impressive half acre site in one of Marin County’s most coveted locales, this home is surrounded by superior Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco and Bay views. 460 Ridge Road was thoughtfully designed and built with an eye for clean, simple and sophisticated lines incorporated into a functional flow for easy, modern living.
The Hill Haven neighborhood of Tiburon is one of the most desirable in the Bay Area. It has large lots, sunny southern exposure with 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. It is rare to find a brand new, custom home located on such a prime parcel.
As you turn into the gated driveway, you discover a design masterpiece in harmony with its environment. Multi-level, flat modern rooflines, clear verticle grain Canadian cedar siding and copper flashing finish the exterior, all beautifully framed by lush gardens and exquisite landscape design. Inside the gates of this private oasis, the outside world disappears. A pathway leads you through gardens to an impressive eleven-foot glass entry door, seamless in a glass wall that allows a breathtaking preview of the open living spaces and views through the interior.
The front entrance leads into wide open spaces framed by walls of glass. Modern steel frame construction creates an opportunity for maximum useable space and 180 degree views from the Golden Gate Bridge to the San Francisco skyline to Angel Island and Berkeley. Down a few steps from the large entryway landing into the combination living and dining room area you notice the San Francisco Bay views, the spacious feel and high quality of finishes surrounding you. Smooth white limestone plaster walls meet wide-plank oak floors and tall acoustical ceilings finished with handsome cedar slats that echo the exterior. Just off the main living room is a casual family/media room that features 7.1 surround sound as well as a built-in 700 Bottle, temperature controlled Studio Becker wine closet.
Studio Becker Kitchen
Studio Becker is the gold standard for high quality, custom kitchens. This kitchen is a true work of art finished in beautiful horizontal grain olive ash wood with Caesarstone countertops and Lenny Kravitz design tile backsplash. Built in appliances include Miele refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher and an induction cook top. A complete set of induction cook wear as well as Studio Becker bone wear crockery and accessories is included. Behind the kitchen, through a hidden door, is a large walk-through storage pantry prep area with Miele double ovens and heating drawers. This space connects the kitchen directly to a two car garage for easy load in.
The master suite was designed to be the ultimate sanctuary. As you walk through the door the scope of the views through the eight-foot sliding doors and windows takes your breath away. From this high vantage you are literally looking down onto the Bay. The doors disappear to each side of the room and reveal an expansive Ipe deck terrace with a continuous glass perimeter wall. Studio Becker is once again featured with a custom built California king bed with an eight foot tall olive ash floating wall headboard that also serves as a room partition. Just to the side of the bed is wall mounted Element 4, European gas fireplace for chilly nights. The master bathroom is the definition of luxury. Floating Ipe wood floors were designed to connect and flow out onto the expansive master terrace deck for a spa inspired indoor/outdoor experience. Take a bath and gaze upon the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge or watch your favorite shows on a 65” Flat-screen TV hidden behind the two-way vanity mirror. Anne Sacks limestone tile is featured with Graff shower fixtures and Italian lighting. Just a few steps away you will find a grand dressing room that features Studio Becker’s latest wardrobe systems.
The entry-level features a spacious guest suite for visitors, but could also serve as a main level master suite if desired. Your guests will enjoy straight-on San Francisco skyline views. The generous bathroom features a large walk-in shower with elegant Anne Sacks limestone tile. This bathroom has a door that leads out to the terrace and was designed to double as a guest dressing room for the pool and spa. Just out the door is an outdoor shower surrounded by hanging gardens.
The outdoor spaces are seamlessly integrated with the indoor spaces to create an environment perfect for grand entertaining or private enjoyment with family and friends. Eight-foot high sliding glass doors retract to each side of the great room and the wall of glass disappears to reveal an expansive terrace plateau with jaw dropping views of the Bay. Relax around a hand-made stainless steel fire pit, float in the infinity edge pool, or soak in the spa just a few feet away. Create meals with your well equipped outdoor kitchen, with a Lynx 42” grill and prep kitchen. Lush lawns and gardens beautifully frame and surround the terrace.
