Welcome to 29 Roosevelt Avenue in Mill Valley! Designed by award-winning architecture firm, Marmol Radziner, this stunning 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath residence blends art and functionality into a spectacularly refined package. Spanning three awe-inspiring levels, the home exemplifies quality craftsmanship and attention to detail at every turn -- all from one of the most desired locations in Marin County.
Marmol Radziner successfully pulls off a brilliant contemporary aesthetic with Northern European influences, making 29 Roosevelt both striking and memorable. Featured in publications such as Dwell Magazine and SF Chronicle Magazine, the home has been abuzz with attention from architecture aficionados since its completion.
Visitors enter the gated grounds by making their way up a cascading slate staircase, which is surrounded by lush, aromatic landscaping. Water from a contemporary fountain trickles from above, infusing the approach with peaceful, audible ambiance. Passing through the oversized front door into the grand foyer, scale and architectural creativity become immediately apparent. Carefully calculated spaces blend into one another, allowing for maximum flow and livability. A floating steel-framed staircase centers the home, illuminated by porthole-style lighting.
To the East there is a spacious formal dining room with built-in buffet, oversized picture windows, and French-door access to a lovely patio. Adjacent, you will find the chef’s kitchen, which is anchored by a large island with bar-height seating, marble countertop and wash basin. Stainless steel counters run the perimeter of the kitchen, interrupted only by best-of-breed appliances which include the SubZero refrigerator, Gaggenau oven, gas range by Wolf and Miele hood. A bamboo forest towers just outside the kitchen windows, providing the chef with verdant views and uplifting culinary inspiration.
Just off the kitchen is a casual den area, perfect for lounging, reading, or doing homework while dinner simmers. The den also has outdoor access through a set of French doors and includes more built-in cabinetry. In fact, the entire home has over $300,000 worth of custom, Rosewood and lacquer cabinetry, helping to maximize storage space and add to a simplistic, clutter-free lifestyle.
Back across the entryway, you will find a grand living space with a large outdoor deck and views to the summit of Mt. Tam. The living area can accommodate many different furniture arrangements and is outfitted with a fireplace, plenty of storage, and surround sound speakers. A chest-high bookshelf sequesters an adjacent sunroom, perfect for keeping kids' toys out of the way or serving as a lounge area. Natural oak hardwoods and recessed lights continue through this space right up to the triple-paned sliding glass door, which easily disappears into recesses on gorgeous days. With that amount of wall open, the living area sings with fresh mountain air and abundant natural light.
Rounding out the main level are a tastefully tiled powder room and separate coat closet, which houses the high-tech programmable lighting system for the entire home.
Ascending the floating steel staircase, you will happen upon the master suite -- which enjoys its own Westward wing as well as the best views in the home. A relaxing built-in daybed and private balcony provide different vantage points of Mt. Tam, with California palms and Redwoods dotting the foreground . The centerpiece of the master is a king-sized, built-in, platform bed. His and her storage areas are custom-built and wrap around to the luxurious master bath. Featuring a large soaking tub and separate stall shower, the master bath gleams with high-end materials and tiles, reminiscent of the world's finest spas.
Down the main hallway of the upper level, there are three more bedrooms and a generously sized office at the end. Two of the bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill style bathroom while the third has its own bathroom en-suite. The office has numerous built-ins and features its own balcony. A connected staircase descends from the balcony to the yard and patio, making access to the in-ground spa a breeze after a hard day's work. Cathedral-style ceilings add drama to many spaces on the upper level and a wall of bookcases stylishly lines the main hall. A library-style ladder leads to a loft, which serves multiple purposes limited only by your imagination.
The lower level of the home contains a private guest quarter, complete with in-room sink and en-suite bath. The guest quarter enjoys direct outdoor access to a charming patio with fire pit through a set of French doors. Down the hall, a huge media room begs for a booming home theatre, sound-proof music studio, or kids' play area. Storage, utilities, and two-car garage complete this level.
Other features of the home include double-paned windows, integrated sound system, alarm and smoke detectors, terrazzo flooring (in select spots), and radiant heating. Automatic irrigation, landscape lighting and an in-ground spa are just some of the many outdoor amenities.
As if this architectural masterpiece weren't enough on its own, the home occupies a choice lot located just four flat blocks to downtown on a handsome, secluded block. 29 Roosevelt is in prime walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, cafes, and entertainment options that the highly sought-after community of Mill Valley has to offer. Combining this extraordinary residence with its walk-to-town location, 29 Roosevelt delivers the ultimate lifestyle for its lucky new owners -- a lifestyle that embodies artistic expression, über-craftsmanship, real-world convenience, and a multitude of leisure opportunities!
