Sweeping view estate above Marin forest

Commanding a high point looking over miles of green treetops to San Francisco Bay, this ultra-private luxury estate commands unobstructed panoramic views of Mt. Tam, the lush forest, the city skyline, the bay and beyond.

The prime 20-acre property is hidden up a long, gated drive through the trees, ending at a masterfully crafted compound. Throughout both the main home and separate guest house, light washes the rooms and walls of windows showcase the breathtaking outlook at every turn.

The main level, all ethereal white walls against rich, dark floors, flows from dining and sitting areas to a window-wrapped, state-of-the-art kitchen with casual eating area.

Wide sliding doors here open to a vast patio with solar pool and spa, outdoor kitchen, multiple seating and dining areas, and endless woodland and sky vistas. It’s outdoor living at its incomparable best.

From the main floor, a floating stairway rises inside a windowed stairwell to the private quarters, beginning with an inviting seating area with a breathtaking view deck.

The primary retreat, one of six bedroom suites in the home, features a balcony with astonishing views over the forest to the bay. Amenities here include a spacious walk-in dressing area with walls of mirrored doors and a magnificent bath with glass-enclosed marble shower and two fully separate sinks.

Near the home, a two-bedroom, two-bath guest house sits atop the property’s three-car garage, where it enjoys its own superb light and views.

This resort-style setting has a practical side, with a barn and barnyard, chicken coops, vegetable garden and more.

Treasured by one family for over 25 years, the magnificent property is now being entrusted to its next fortunate owners. 555 Iron Springs Road, Fairfax is listed at $4,500,000 by Zamira Solari.
