Welcome to 1 Channing Way in sunny Sausalito! This impeccably maintained residence is situated between the dense, urban setting of San Francisco and the rugged natural terrain of the Marin Headlands. With sweeping vistas from Wolfback Ridge to the San Francisco skyline and beyond, this magical setting is simply rivaled by none.
Boasting three bedrooms and three full baths spread across two levels, the renovated home is warm, welcoming, and completely turnkey. A stunning great room, with living, dining, and kitchen flowing to one another, is surrounded by a wall of glass and an outdoor living area— all oriented towards the view. Witness the interplay of atmosphere, water, and land dance before your eyes, with endless displays of colors, moods, and energies— both manmade and natural. Vaulted, wood-slat ceilings add both volume and warmth, and a large fireplace is located at the heart of the home. The dining room easily accommodates 8-10 person dining tables, perfect for dinner parties, and the ceiling above sports a series of skylights.
The kitchen features top-end appliances, including a SubZero refrigerator, gas-fired Wolf range, and Bosch dishwasher. Handsome Caesarstone counters run the perimeter, including a breakfast bar adjacent to the dining room— the perfect spot to surf the laptop and sip coffee. Custom glass-faced cabinetry and a tiled backsplash add style and function, and a stainless microwave is conveniently located.
A cozy family room is located at the West end of the main level and offers built-in shelving, a vaulted ceiling, multi-zone amplifier for the home’s sound system, and glimpses of the Robin Williams Tunnel. Just across the family room is a full bath that doubles as the public space’s powder room, and serves the guest room that is located on the Southwest wing. Gorgeous wide-plank white oak flooring runs throughout and dimmable lights create an atmosphere of ambiance at night.
A custom plate-glass stairwell leads to the lower level, which contains the primary suite and a second bedroom, also en-suite. The primary bedroom is oriented towards the view and features automatic shades, a walk-in closet with built-ins, and an incredible home office / den. The lower level deck may be accessed from the home office and features a very private jetted hot tub and outdoor shower. This is the spot to relax after a long day and watch day turn to dusk, as ships and sailboats make their way across the Bay with sparkling skyscrapers as the backdrop. Back inside, the primary bath features dual vanities and a marble-tiled shower-over-tub with a picture window facing the view.
The second bedroom is generously-sized and features a luxuriously appointed bath with oversized shower stall with dual heads. The bedroom benefits from its own separate entrance along a path located on the North side of the property, perfect for guests to come and go discreetly. Rounding out the lower level is a laundry closet which includes Samsung washer/dryer and a 2-car garage with storage.
Pride of ownership is evident all throughout the property— from the manicured grounds with auto irrigation to the high-end fixtures and finishes. The home features 30 solar panels and battery backup, EV charging, air conditioning, copper gutters, low-maintenance Trex decks, and much more.
The A+ location offers a multitude of outdoor recreation options, whether it’s neighborhood walks, hiking, mountain biking, road cycling, trail running, swimming, or sailing— everything is within reach and a bustling town full of cafes, boutiques, and world-class eateries is just down the hill. All this just 11 minutes from San Francisco, and less than an hour to wine country— 1 Channing Way has it all!
Sausalito offers some the best views of San Francisco that Marin County has to offer. Stroll along the bayfront promenade on a weekend, and you'll hear the languages of visitors who come to Sausalito from all over the world. Tourists come for the Sausalito Art Festival, its hidden walks, its funky houseboat colonies, seafood, and unforgettable views. But come during a weekday, and you'll likely have it all to yourself.
Sausalito’s Bridgeway is home to pleasant Dunphy Park, while the local library and Studio 333, a warehouse-sized art gallery, are a few blocks away. Food runs the gamut from Sushi Ran to Smitty's Bar -- where the bartender knows you your name and the kitchen serves up a delicious and unpretentious cheeseburger and fries.
Increasingly, Sausalito is home to new media and green-tech entrepreneurs who have traded in the Silicon Valley commute for a walk to headquarters along the Waterfront and Marinship District. Located just north of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito boasts quick access to San Francisco by car, bus, ferry, or bike.
