Located in coveted Kent Woodlands, this gated Mediterranean style residence sits on a quiet cul-de-sac just steps from some of the best hiking and mountain biking trails Mount Tamalpias has to offer. Surrounded by towering redwoods and majestic oaks, this property (.79 acres per tax records) is also graced by an assortment of specimen trees including Japanese maple, olive, Kousa dogwood and tulip magnolia. Take a stroll down the stone path lined with boxwood through the rose garden to the gazebo. The newly redone pool and spa with expansive decks plus wrap around yard and patios are splendid for outdoor entertaining.
The lovely home, extensively updated in 2006, consists of four bedrooms plus office, three full bathrooms and powder room and is 3,481 sq. ft. (per appraiser). There is considerable use of detailed woodwork throughout including large crown molding, casements, inset panels, trey ceilings, reclaimed beams and mahogany stained red oak floors. Many of the walls are colored Venetian Plaster adding texture and richness to the rooms. French doors in each of the public rooms open to the many patios and gardens and provide optimal flow from indoors to out.
