404 Bella Vista Avenue, Belvedere
Located in one of Belvedere's most desirable microclimates and enjoying some of the warmest weather on the Island, the beautiful, historic T.L. Miller House offers world class views of the San Francisco Bay, Angel and Corinthian Islands, Belvedere Cove, Raccoon Straits and San Francisco and Corinthian Yacht Clubs. This four level, grand residence was originally built in 1893 (per property records) and features 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 4,775 square feet of living space (per tax records) on a street to street lot.
Characterized by the Classic Revival style of the pedimented entrance vestibule and the clapboard and shingle exterior, the generously large sun porch and entry is surrounded by original glass paned windows, wood paneled walls and leads to the wrap-around deck through double French doors. The formal living room is truly a masterfully-built work of art. From the ornate details carried through each feature of the room to the large bay windows perfectly framing the most stunning views of the San Francisco Bay and Angel Island, the room's elegant charm is graciously welcoming. As the room is filled with sunlight each carefully considered detail is showcased. Oak hardwood flooring, double crown molding, a custom hand-carved fireplace mantle and curved double doors were custom built and designed to reflect the natural beauty of the panoramic views. The large sliding glass door leads to the wrap-around deck with outdoor dining area overlooking the Bay. Just off the living room on the main level is the den, complete with a wet bar and access to the deck. Details include exposed brick, crown molding, and paned glass windows that look out to the beautiful water views. Completing the main level is the master suite. Wainscoted walls, original crown molding and trim carry the depth of style throughout the master suite. The master bath has a dual vanity sink, French shower and large walk-in closet.
