Carefully crafted, magazine cover worthy and draped in timeless luxury, this reimagined Victorian is a one of a kind Marin residence. Originally built in 1883 by the renowned Samuel P Taylor family (known for the W. Marin state park bearing its name), this legendary home underwent an extensive and modern transformation in 2013. The main level, anchored by an impressive chefs kitchen with a 14’ Calcutta marble and walnut kitchen island along with a La Cornue range, serves as the central hub of the home. Adjacent living and dining areas, both airy and elegant, boast brilliant Ocre chandeliers, and exclusive Farrow and Ball paint colors. Salvaged lighting from London rests above the bar cart in the modern family room still reminiscent of the library or den from an era gone by. Even the powder and mud room, accented with rich textured wallpaper, embodies a certain European sensibility and refined style. Grand bi-folding doors open seamlessly to the magical English-like gardens and generous yard space, artfully designed by Humanature Landscaping. Highlights include flat lawn area, multiple gathering spots, vegetable beds, mature trees, exquisite plants and even a water feature created out of an early 1800’s French Empire bathtub. It's ideal for small family get togethers or epic parties. One flight up, the bedroom level is highlighted by a master suite with a Victoria and Albert soaking tub and a fresh air balcony. Two additional bedrooms provide plenty of space for slumber. Loft like, hip and roomy, the upper, air-conditioned level, boasts the best views in the house along with an ensuite bath. An expansive space ideal for teens, guests or todays indispensable home office. Simply sublime and soulful, a property like this scarcely exists and is an almost impossible find in Marin. Blocks from charming downtown San Anselmo with shops, restaurants, parks and open-air dining. Plus easy access to trails, Marin mother nature and the freeway. This contemporary masterpiece will captivate you at every turn.
