Features

The neighbors call it the “Castle House”.  Situated on a private quarter acre in the kid friendly/populated San Marin area sits the “one of a kind”. With a round turret in the front and another one in the private back yard pool area, this house is visible and memorable to all. The property is on a curve in the road with one neighbor house on one border twenty feet below. The other border is an access driveway to a flag lot ensuring total privacy.

Styled after a Mediterranean villa this 4 bedroom, 5 bath house was created with great attention to detail and comfortable living. Coming through the 4’ front door, you find a dining room nestled to the right with travertine walls & floors and a cedar coffered ceiling. To the left, is the two story great room with family room on the back end with wet bar.  This room displays double high windows to the beam ceiling above. On warm days when the 11’ bi-fold window (breakfast nook) and 11’ bifold door (family room) are open with the southern exposure they bring the outside inside to a glorious pairing and style of living. The pebbtec pool with hydraulic vaulted safety cover offset the large patio and shade structure with outside bath. If you entertain, this house has what you want. From the large windows in the great room to the upstairs bedrooms you can find panoramic views of the surrounding hills.
