Nestled on the sunny side of Mill Valley’s Cascade Canyon, 6 Throckmorton Lane is a stunning and delightful residence situated in one of Northern California’s most picturesque settings. Nearby redwood trees tower above, while creeks and falls descend the foothills of Mt. Tamalpais. A truly rare blend of natural serenity and walk-to-town convenience, the property is just a few minutes walk to both hiking trails and downtown Mill Valley, which provides a host of shopping and entertainment options.
On a lovely tucked-away cul-de-sac with only five other properties, this warm contemporary residence successfully combines real-world usability with an elegant aesthetic. Completely renovated for her own family by distinguished California designer Karen Goldberg (founder of Studio G Interior Architecture and Design in San Francisco), the property boasts a highly functional single-level floor plan for its main living space. Intelligent decking and landscaping make for easy indoor/outdoor entertaining and integrate seamlessly with the home’s beautiful natural outdoor setting.
The main level is centered around a grand entertainment space, which includes the chef’s kitchen, open dining room, and vaulted great room. One of the many highlights is the double-sided fireplace accentuated by exposed-wood cathedral ceilings. The space packs a huge wow-factor and is the perfect place to entertain.
The kitchen features custom concrete counters, a gas cooktop by Viking Professional, high-end stainless steel appliances by KitchenAid, and walk-in pantry. The cooktop is located on a large breakfast peninsula that looks out to the entertainment space – perfect for incorporating the chef into the festivities. The dining room may easily accommodate large banquet-style tables and opens to the great room.
The great room itself features huge picture windows that let in canyon and ridgeline views, all the way up to Mt. Tam’s summit. Natural light pours into this area, which is as cozy as it is open. Just off the great room is a stunning private Ipe wood deck great for large parties, or just barbecuing and enjoying the splendid views. A smaller lawn and charming rear garden complete the grounds, which are fully irrigated.
The bedroom wing of the home features three of the four bedrooms and two of the three full baths, including the dedicated master suite. Stepping into the master is a striking experience in and of itself, as the bedroom boasts high vaulted ceilings and its own outdoor deck. Past the walk-in closet you’ll find a resort-style luxury tub, beautifully appointed with high-end fixtures, high-end slate work, and a gorgeous glass/slate upright shower.
The southeastern wing of the home features an enormous family room and adjacent guest suite. Versatile in its use, this wing of the house can accommodate any lifestyle. Art studio and workout space? Kids’ play room and guest suite? Home office and lounge? The possibilities are many and they’re at your command.
The entry level of the residence houses the 2,400 bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar as well as a finished tasting room, laundry, garage and carport.
Throughout the residence are beautiful hardwood floors, high ceilings, tall doors, recessed lighting on dimmer controls, double-paned windows, Cat5 wiring, central vacuum, fine materials and tasteful touches to be experienced in person.
A few minutes walk brings the lucky new owners of 6 Throckmorton Lane to hiking and biking trails, Cascade Falls, Old Mill Elementary School, several preschools, park/playground, the Mill Valley Library, O’Hanlon Art Center, and all the restaurants, theaters, and shops of downtown. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy all Mill Valley has to offer!
