Home of the Week: Kentfield estate embodies California lifestyle
Embraced by Mount Tamalpais woodland, this expansive home at 658 Goodhill Road, Kentfield’s most prestigious street, embodies the easy California lifestyle at its elegant best.
A huge pool and spa, a tennis court, two patios and a full barbecue kitchen share this leafy natural setting, surrounded by luxuriant tree-shaded grounds, an expansive level lawn and leafy woodland with easy trail access.
With four en-suite bedrooms on the upper level and a private guest house with full kitchen and pull-up patio seating, this is an ideal place for family-friendly living.
Emphasis on the finest design, materials and craftsmanship begins with the towering wrought iron and glass door that opens to the two-story entry. (A bird’s eye view of this soaring space, lit by high windows, can be had from both the upper hall and master suite.) From here, the sightlines sweep all the way across the expansive main level to the grounds beyond.
It’s an open environment made for entertaining, flowing easily through great room, formal dining, living and family areas.
Near a casual eating spot by a view balcony, an expansive open chef’s kitchen and 1,000-bottle wine cellar stand ready to handle anything from intimate gatherings to grand occasions.
The family room can be closed off by wide barn doors; a handy pass-through to the kitchen creates a private club atmosphere.
A more secluded domain, the office, is surrounded by custom wainscoting, bookcases and leafy views.
The four upper bedroom suites include a luxurious master retreat with step-up marble bath and a suite with a private balcony.
Surrounded by natural beauty, this casually sumptuous family domain is listed by Barr Haney at $9,500,000.
