SFGate hailed it “a new standard for modern Tiburon elegance” — and from the moment you step inside this contemporary “smart” home on over half an acre just off of prestigious Gilmartin Drive, you realize it’s not hyperbole.

Recently completed and listed by Joshua Deitch of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Mill Valley, the 4,700 square-foot residence is rooted in warm, timeless design. Envisioned by The Ryan Group and Tamalpais Construction, the cantilevered glass home pays tribute to California living at every turn. A private gated auto court and oversized garage leads to an impressive pivot door and 2-story glass-walled formal entry foyer featuring a dramatic custom steel, glass, and wood floating stair case and walking bridge.

High ceilings create a sense of volume and openness. The main level of the home consists of an open floor plan including a large formal living area, elegant chef’s kitchen with Viking and Miele appliances, dining area, TV/den area, powder room, pantry and wine room — naturally. This “living level,” as the design team calls it, was conceived as the ultimate entertaining space, and connects seamlessly to the infinity-edged outdoor living spaces by landscape architect Jim Bradanini, who brought together a pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, bocce ball court, fire pit and flat yard in masterful form.

The upper level boasts five bedrooms and four bathrooms, which are connected by spacious hallways and expansive panels of glass.  The luxurious master suite features an entry foyer, private patio, walk-in closet, freestanding tub and an outdoor fireplace.  This suite is perched perfect to enjoy panoramic views spanning downtown San Francisco to Mount Tamalpais.

Custom touches and high-quality details have been thoughtfully integrated throughout the home. Fleetwood universal sliding window panels and corner-on-corner glass pocketing doors with zero threshold add a dose of indoor/outdoor drama. Calcutta marble graces the kitchens and baths with waterfall edges. Radiant heating with independent zones was placed in every room.  There was not one detail that was overlooked in this home, from the custom milled details and trim to the European fixtures throughout. Even the details unseen remained a priority for the design team, as seen in the Savant Smart home technology system, which allows the homeowner complete control over the house via an integrated iPad.

Conveniently located just a short distance from all that Tiburon has to offer, this is an exceptional home for entertaining and enjoying a luxe lifestyle. It’s on the market for $8,685,000.  For more information, call (415) 572-5433 or email JDeitch@cbnorcal.com.
