Tuscan dream with Tiburon views
Gated and private, 8 Audrey Court lies at the end of a private cul-de-sac with views that span the Bay Bridge, San Francisco, Angel Island and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Inspired by a Tuscan farmhouse and largely built in 2001, the home is a haven of rustic Old World charm with textured walls, aged stone and decorative ironwork.
A wealth of elegant details, from arched doorways and ceilings to patterned floors and welcoming fireplaces enriches the ambience. The open floor plan centers on a warm, inviting great room with astonishing bay views, the first of many wonderful entertainment areas.
The space flows through a windowed dining area to a charming gourmet Italian farmhouse kitchen with massive beamed ceiling, colorfully tiled oven and marble-topped island with vintage-style prep sink. An enchanting spiral staircase descends to the 1,400-bottle wine cellar below, where a doorway opens to the garden.
Three bedroom suites include a luxurious main level master suite that looks out on ever-changing bay views and night lights. The home’s interior beauty is matched by its expansively gracious outdoor setting.
A large pergola-covered dining area, kitchen with pizza oven, and sparkling solar-heated pool with spa for eight highlight this sunny place, whose verdant lawn, stunning rose garden and raised flower and vegetable beds add to its charm.
This private world, minutes from hiking trails, waterfront paths and downtown Tiburon, is listed by Shana Rhode-Lynch at $6,727,000.
