Tiburon, once a breezy summer hamlet for wealthy San Franciscans, may be the perfect setting for this resort-style contemporary. Tucked away at the end of a private drive and set on a wooded lot with filtered views of Belvedere Island and the lagoon, this 4,890 square-foot architectural residence has a calming presence — not unlike the ambiance one might like to bask in while on holiday or summer break.
The light-filled interiors, the indoor/outdoor connection and comfortable spaces would tempt any one of us. Five bedrooms and four and a half baths provide plenty of room for families, large and small, or can accommodate the occasional visitor who longs for a sleepy nautical getaway near the city — thanks to the detached guest house.
Of course, owners and guests don’t have to go far to experience a relaxed Tiburon lifestyle either. The property’s lush landscaping, accentuated with terraced gardens and manicured lawn, beckons them outdoors, day or night. They can meander among the magnificent oak trees, extensive walkways and bridges crossing over a seasonal creek. There’s also a bocce court, pool with waterfall and spa — all intended to provide opportunity for entertainment and enjoyment.
Downtown Tiburon, and its historic Main Street with shops, restaurants and boutiques is not far away. Parks, landmarks and the San Francisco and Corinthian Yacht Clubs also offer ample opportunity for leisure. All of this makes this livable Tiburon contemporary an alluring place to live. After all, it’s hard to resist a home that makes us feel as if we are on vacation everyday, right?
