San Anselmo Gorgeous Traditional Home in Sleepy Hollow
Located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the flats of Sleepy Hollow, this is a fabulous, private estate in beautiful San Anselmo. Lovingly maintained and updated by the same family for 56 years, this 3 bedroom plus office, 2.5 bath residence sits on .35 of an acre and is extensively landscaped with a stunning variation of mature foliage and gorgeous hardscape. Perfect for large scale entertaining or private enjoyment! The heart of the home, right off the entry, is the formal living and dining space with oversized glass sliders, numerous operable skylights and big picture windows. The space is light and bright and seamlessly flows to the covered terrace and expansive backyard which includes a hot tub, gazebo and heritage rose garden. The updated chef's kitchen is grounded by an enormous custom island and surrounded by fine crafted cabinetry and a bonus pantry space. The home chef is certain to be pleased with the suite of high-end appliances including: a Wolfe range and hood, Subzero refrigerator, double ovens, a warming drawer, and Miele dishwasher and built-in espresso/coffee machine. Nearby is the huge family/bonus room with unobstructed views of the lush gardens, grand scale and a built-in bar area. It is ideally situated on the opposite side of the house from the bedrooms and offers over 600 sq.ft of possibilities (per floor plan visuals). Along the bedroom wing of the property are two nicely appointed bright bedrooms with wide closets that share a full bathroom complete with it’s own jet soaking tub and standing shower. Down the hallway through the home office is the private main bedroom suite which sits at the rear of the house. It was newly remodeled in 2015 with custom cabinetry, a walk-in closet and designer details such a specialty ceiling molding and grasscloth wallpaper, and a full bath with its beautiful mosaic tile and double vanity. Checking all the additional boxes: two-car attached garage with attic storage, large laundry room with floor to ceiling cabinetry, beautifully refinished hardwood floors throughout, this house is a rare find. Lovely as-is, but with so much potential and in the coveted Ross Valley school system.
