The Record: Breathtaking Views In Tiburon, $13M


Achieving the highest price paid in February in Marin County, this high-style dwelling is the work of architect David Kotzebue and landscape architect John Merton, framing spectacular views of San Francisco and taking advantage of Tiburon’s unique micro-climate with disappearing walls of glass. Replacing the original 1959 structure on the site (in basically the same footprint) in a multi-year project, the 4-bed, 4.5-bath home closed at the end of February for $13M. Bill Smith and Scott Woods of Pacific Union were the seller’s agents; Deborah Svoboda of Sotheby’s represented the buyer.

The incredible attention to detail begins with concealed garage doors and extends to the open main living area and decks, overlooking Tiburon and San Francisco.

What We Love: Without visible headers and no apparent framing, the roof appears to float. Engineering and flawless construction values!

The lower level is no less spectacular, with bedrooms centered around a media room and office, and walls of glass that literally disappear.

The master bedroom and adjoining bath– with a rain shower, a sunken tub, and fireplace– open to the deck.

Magical: The exquisite infinity pool at night.
