This incomparable estate offers the new owner/s a singular opportunity to acquire what is arguably the most desirable property in Mill Valley. The +-7,545 square foot compound offers a 6 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom, three story main residence in addition to a one level, detached 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom guest house. Completed as a ground up/new build approximately 23 years ago, the vision for the home was largely influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright with the seamless blending of Arts and Craft’s influenced Craftsman style and timeless Asian influence throughout. The extensive use of rich Honduran Mahogany, curved walls, soaring scale, and a glass domed ceiling has created a singular residential experience. The home is perfectly site placed on +-1.62 private and quiet acres to take advantage of “top of the world” views that extend from the San Francisco Bay to the Oakland Bay Bridge to downtown San Francisco to the extensive ridge line views in Mill Valley. Almost every single room in the main house and guest house enjoy these expansive views with a heightened experience at night when the city and bridge lights are invited into the home. Seamless indoor/outdoor living is enjoyed from the home’s living rooms to the resort like grounds which include a beautifully designed in-ground pool, spa, huge terrace for entertaining and al fresco dining, mature trees and plantings, Old Growth Oaks, stone walls, and hiking trails accessible right outside your front door. The residence is conveniently located just halfway down E. Blithedale in a +-3 minute drive to town. One of only four homes behind the Via Vandyke gate, 1 Via Vandyke offers a very rare opportunity for either a full-time residence or weekend home for San Francisco residents looking to have respite from fog and wind. Located in the highly desirable Mill Valley School District.
Family-friendly Mill Valley is all about schools and sports. Nestled at the foot of Mount Tamalpais, homes in the Marin County city range from 500-square-foot hunter's cabins to multimillion-dollar mansions tucked away on winding, narrow lanes under the redwoods.
Coffee is king in Mill Valley. Downtown, three separate coffee shops do a brisk business. At the Depot, as the sunny town center is called, moms with strollers, kids on tricycles, and teenagers kicking hacky sacks relax in the open-air plaza, which now houses an independent bookstore and cafe. The Depot is also a jumping-off spot for hikers and mountain bikers heading up the slopes of Mount Tamalpais. Nightlife in Mill Valley is anchored by Sweetwater Music Hall, which hosts many well-known musical acts.
As the groomed playing fields at the community center attest, sports are big in Mill Valley, with soccer, baseball, and lacrosse leagues all popular.
