A very rare opportunity presents itself in the offering of one of Marin County’s most architecturally significant estates. This Hampton’s inspired 5 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom residence on 2.5 acres has been renovated with seamless attention to light, scale, and high-end, traditional designer finishes throughout. The +- 5,136 square foot shingle style home offers the new owner a perfectly executed blend of soaring ceilings, tall doors and windows, milled woodwork, fine moldings, and wide open spaces throughout. The highly desirable layout offers a rarely available floor plan that includes five bedrooms on the upper level, ideal for both younger and growing families. The heart of the home is a grand scale great room with newly renovated kitchen that opens directly to the outstanding, south facing outside living spaces. The magazine worthy grounds include sweeping lawns, mature trees, an outdoor grilling area, over scaled in ground pool and spa, and a symphonic display of year round color. The residence was designed for entertaining and is ideal for both smaller dinner parties or grand scale events. Sweeping views of the bay, Mt. Tam, and the iconic Bay Bridge are enjoyed from many of the home’s main rooms. Gated, private, and extremely quiet, 255 Highland Avenue is located in San Rafael’s most exclusive Country Club neighborhood and is just minutes from Highway 101 for a very quick commute to downtown San Francisco.
