When you’re talking about a nearly $5 million home, the word “value” may not be the first word that comes to your mind. But you might reframe your expectations after one glance at the views of this impeccable $4,980,000 contemporary in Sausalito. Perched above the hills in the rarified air beyond San Francisco, 952 Cloud View Road is a place where cooling breezes, impeccable architectural detail and uncompromising panoramas of the San Francisco Bay, Angel Island, and the city skyline are your companions.

A contemporary four-bedroom design showcase of form and function, the 3,100-square-foot home was designed to maximize stunning vistas, from its level, southeast facing lot to the orientation of its many windows, to retractable walls of glass that erase the separation between inside and outside.

Situated on a private view lot in a coveted location just minutes from San Francisco and Sausalito’s village, 952 Cloud View Road offers the ideal place to enjoy the beauty of nature and the beauty of everyday life. Create gourmet meals in the chef’s kitchen, where top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances including a 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator, Gagneau under-counter oven, oversized under-counter Miele steam oven, and two Miele dishwashers join with granite countertops, custom cherry cabinets, and a spacious center island to create a one-of-a-kind space.

The gracious living room features a wood-clad ceiling, marble fireplace, and some of the more spectacular views you will find in all of Marin County. The formal dining room is the perfect spot for fancier meals and holiday get-togethers. For casual family time, the large family room with fireplace and French doors that open to the private front patio and gardens really delivers. A spacious library/music room offers additional family space.

Enter into the spa-worthy master suite, and luxuriate in the master bath with deep soaking tub and oversized shower—that’s if you can take your eyes off of the sparkling city light and moonlit bay views. Ample closet space allows your clothing, shoes, and collectibles to live as comfortably as you do.

Outside, the 9,590-square-foot lot offers expansive patios, lushly landscaped gardens featuring a rare cork oak tree, two separate entertainment areas with stainless steel barbeque area and sink, and a crackling fireplace. Additionally, among the many enticing features offered by this special residence is an adjacent 6,000-square-foot lot that can host its own large home or a pool and guesthouse. Or, the entire property can be turned into a compound.
