Modern Design and Million Dollar Views of the San Francisco Bay Blend Perfectly in Tiburon

460 Ridge, Tiburon - PHoto by, Sylvie Zolezzi

I must have spent a whole hour at 460 Ridge Road in the Hill Haven neighborhood of Tiburon last Wednesday while touring properties on brokers’ tour.  I was absolutely enthralled by the views, and the beauty of the home, the attention to every detail, the infinity pool, the use of technology…everything about this home was spectacular and appealed to me.

So it was no surprise to me that the home was featured on the first page of this past Sunday’s San Francisco Chronicle Real Estate Section.

As is almost always the case with new construction in Tiburon because there are no lots available in prime locations, the brand new 5,000 square foot home replaced an older home built in the 1950’s that was torn down to make way for the new structure.

In addition to being one of the most beautiful homes I have seen in Tiburon, this home may be among the smartest. It is equipped with a Savant System controlled by wall-mounted iPads and iPods that operates everything from the entry gate to the radiant heating, as well as fireplaces, fountains, intercoms and security systems–and the smartest part in my opinion is that these systems can also be controlled remotely from the owner’s smart phone.

I loved the infinity pool and how it was perfectly integrated in the landscape and the jaw dropping view of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay and the San Francisco skyline.  Walls of glass and Fleetwood multi-slide pocket frameless windows and doors that open to the view create a seamless transition to the outdoors.  You could be sitting in the master bathtub with the pocket door open and feel like you are sitting on the deck…imagine…

The home is also architecturally intriguing and stunningly beautiful in every way, combining Japanese influences, mid-century modern aesthetics and the generous use of natural woods throughout to make it invitingly sober and calm, making you want to linger there as I did.

If you or someone you know is looking for a new pad that fits these criteria, it can be yours for $8,995,000.  I would be happy to represent you in the purchase of this jewel.

I took many pictures while I was there. Click on the link to enjoy my photo album.
