Quiet sophistication sets the tone for this expansive 4+ bedroom home. Fostering a love of modern architecture, art and design, this understatement of luxury combines elegance with relaxation. Detailed attention has been given to the oversized slabs of white Carrara and Calacatta marble, playful textures and mood lighting. Every room including the large home gym opens to a deck and a view through floor-to-ceiling Fleetwood glass. Even the garage has a view. As much thoughtfulness has been given to the outdoor space as the indoor. Flat grassy areas are complimented by the natural gravitation from the upward hillside cascading to a huge infinity pool and the Bay below. Flow seamlessly from room to room, top to bottom — the space speaks for itself.
Winding up to the large and private olive tree-lined drive, number 11 sits perched elegantly on the southward facing slope of Mt. Tiburon.
