135 S. Ridgewood Road, Kentfield
An unrivaled opportunity presents itself in the offering of one of Marin County’s largest and most revered estates. Completed in 2008, with more recent updating by two of the Bay Area’s top design firms, the +-10,120 square foot Santa Barbara inspired ground up residence, guest house, and detached pool house masterfully blend authentic, Mediterranean inspired finishes with a contemporary application of designer lighting and sophisticated interior finishes for an unrivaled residential experience. The main residence offers a total of five bedrooms, with four bedrooms, including the hotel-like primary suite, on the upper level, and en-suite guest quarters (fifth bedroom) on the main level. The separate one-bedroom guest house offers a “house within the house”. Additionally, there is a detached pool house with flexible uses including a gym, yoga studio, home office, massage room, or additional guest quarters. The “pool cave”, located adjacent to the pool, offers shaded lounging and is ideal for reading, relaxing, and entertaining. State of the art steel framed interior walls combined with a Nudura technology exterior differentiates this home from all others by offering an insulated concrete exterior steel-studded interior walls for superior strength, fire protection, and energy efficiency. Timeless, bespoke finishes are evident throughout and include high-end designer lighting and fixtures, magazine worthy tile, stone and marble, custom designed moldings and box beam ceilings, and custom wall coverings. 135 South Ridgewood is not only ideal as a full time residence, but also a wonderful alternative to longer commutes to Sonoma or Napa for a weekend home for city dwellers.
