Does the French countryside feel like Marin County? Yes please !
On a lush lot with winding pathways in the Del Mesa area of Kentfield, this classic European-style home was built in 1932 and retains distinctive features such as a slate hipped roof and painted shutters framing a multitude of floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the wooded surroundings. . Inside, high ceilings create airy living spaces that enhance the outdoors.
The ground floor is made up of spacious areas for cooking, dining and relaxing. The formal living room has recessed lighting in a tiered ceiling and is anchored by a marble fireplace; a pair of doors open onto a patio. A glazed arch offers here a passage in a green atrium and yet another terrace.
Recently remodeled, the kitchen has abundant storage space thanks to floor-to-ceiling cabinetry as well as a custom built-in refrigerator and an extra-large oven with a six-burner range. The formal dining room is equally bright and large enough to seat at least 10 people. The breakfast room is ideal for a more casual bite.
A bedroom and a bathroom complete the first floor.
There are three bedrooms and two freshly renovated bathrooms upstairs. The master suite has two closets and a soothing bathroom with a stand-alone tub located under a small arched window. The primary also offers a view of Mount Tam.
