Presenting the centennial debut of a sunny and private turn-of-the-century three bedroom, two bathroom Craftsman-style 2667±SF home with pool plus 480±SF flex space. Originally built in 1908, this exceptional home reflects an era of simplicity and contemplation. Comprised of four APNs, the combined lot encompasses approx. 0.96±AC. Nestled in oak-studded Wolfe Canyon and ideally sited for stellar Mt. Tam and canyon views, the recently renovated home fuses charm and modernity with the unique opportunity to expand with a second home or accessory dwelling unit (buyer to verify) and create a distinctive legacy property in Marin County’s coveted Del Mesa neighborhood.
In successive family ownership since 1910 when purchased by the founder of San Francisco’s Fred W. Gerlach Shoe Company, the essence of the home remains intact highlighted by original elements, including custom millwork, brick fireplace, high ceilings, sconces and light fixtures. Over the past year, the kitchen, primary suite with office and laundry room have been remodeled plus air conditioning and Smart Home features have been added with thoughtful consideration to fuse seamlessly with the original character of the home.
Encompassed by bucolic views and mature landscaping, transition to privacy and tranquility as you pass through the electric security gate and approach the three car garage and home set at the end of the drive. Upon approach to the front door, pass the alluring pool with redwood decking and inviting upper patio with multiple settings for relaxing or entertaining.
The welcoming and light-filled entry will draw you in to the main level of the home with wide plank engineered French Oak flooring, formal living and dining rooms, remodeled kitchen with casual dining and bar seating, two bedrooms, one full bathroom and a jaw dropping view of Mt. Tamalpais.
An inviting layout presents the formal living and dining room adjacent to the kitchen and casual dining space. The original brick fireplace is the focal point of the living room, while a large picture window facing the upper patio and original windows in the dining room facing the canyon infuse light and encompass serenity within. Original millwork on walls and ceiling, built-in shelf and cabinet, and updated light fixtures balance warmth and comfort.
Enjoy cooking, casual dining and entertaining with an incredible Mt. Tam view from sunny south facing windows and French doors opening to the upper deck. The kitchen has been recently updated with warm wood cabinetry and drawers with soft close hinges offering plenty of storage, granite countertops, subway tile backsplash and bar seating. The sunny location and lovely Kentfield microclimate will present indoor-outdoor options for pleasant entertaining deck, patio or poolside, under the trellis or beside the outdoor fireplace with lights illuminating the mature landscaping in the evenings.
Downstairs, the private primary retreat includes a sizable office, walk-in and standard closets and remodeled ensuite bathroom. Original sconces and light fixtures dot the walls with original millwork and eucalyptus ceilings. French doors from the bedroom, bathroom and den offer lovely light, treetop views and access to the lower deck to enjoy a private respite. A newly remodeled laundry with storage is also downstairs.
Just outside and a few steps away from primary suite is a spacious, light-filled 480±SF flex space. With its own entrance under the garage, the space may offer options as a personal gym, artist’s studio, or second office. Separate room within the space may be ideal for a wine cellar, dark room or storage. The possibilities are endless.
Ideally located near desirable Bacich Elementary & Kent Middle Schools, restaurants, shopping, medical facilities and public transportation including Larkspur Ferry and SMART train. Easy access to San Francisco and all points throughout the Bay Area. Under an hour to Sonoma and Napa Wine Country and under four hours to Lake Tahoe.
Live, build, reimagine or expand in the heart of Kentfield. This is truly a special opportunity to create a legacy home and to share memories with family and friends now and for generations to come.
