Wine Country Living in the San Rafael Peninsula

Welcome to the desirable bayside community  of  Glenwood and see the best it has to offer.  This exquisite 4 bedroom, 3 bath home was  expanded to bring in abundant natural light and designed for seamless indoor/outdoor living.  The main floor includes a formal living room with a dramatic concrete fireplace, gleaming hardwood floors, and multiple floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the stunning verdant hillside views.  The dining room boasts French doors that open directly out to the patio and lovely backyard as does the family room that features a welcoming warm, gas-insert second fireplace. The generously scaled kitchen offers ample storage, including a pantry, and a sunny dining area with vaulted ceiling, enveloped by windows and French doors that lead to the captivating outside spaces.  The main floor also has a bedroom (staged as an optional office) and a full bathroom.

Ascend to the upper floor that features an enchanting master bedroom, with outlooks of the tranquil private yard, complemented by a recently updated master bathroom.  Adding to the master’s additional appeal is a spacious walk-in closet.  The upper level also has two additional bedrooms and a third full bathroom.   

The pièce de résistance of this property is its magical setting and grounds that create a private retreat and unique opportunity for the hobby winemaker.   Radiant sunsets inspire a desire to revel in the serenity that abounds.  Anchored by a majestic Chinese elm tree, the terraced hillside presents 60 grape vines that include 25 Chardonnay, 25 Syrah and 10 Grenache varietals. The current owners have made Chardonnay, Syrah rose, and a red Rhone blend.

Mature citrus trees, a thriving vegetable garden, eggs from truly free-range hens provide a bountiful harvest of fresh foods to enjoy and the natural gas BBQ is always ready to prepare a sumptuous feast.  Dine outdoors on a newly surfaced patio next the sparkling solar-heated pool. 

Located two blocks from Glenwood Elementary,  near Peacock and Victor Jones parks, China Camp, and Andy’s Local Market, this coveted location is unparalleled.  A rare opportunity to enjoy the best that Marin has to offer blended with a unique wine-country appeal, this property truly has it all!
