Welcome to 99 Via Los Altos in sunny Tiburon! This dazzling French-inspired custom home offers an unparalleled lifestyle sure to capture the hearts of the most discerning buyers. And boasting an extensive list of upgrades and embellishments, the home is completely turnkey and awaits a very lucky new owner.
The ~5,400+ square foot residence spans three levels and was recently renovated in collaboration with Jill McCrae of JM Interiors. Thoughtful curation of the finest elements accentuate the spaces, creating a classic, uplifting vibe throughout the immaculately maintained home. Artisans and specialty vendors have provided everything from onyx counters to alabaster light fixtures, and the result is positively breathtaking.
The home is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac street with a local trailhead just outside the front door. Perched atop a knoll coming off of Ring Mountain, the location is truly a hidden gem, as only a few properties offer a sweeping view of the Bay and San Francisco’s skyline — of which 99 Via Los Altos is one. The orientation of the home is such that nearly every room enjoys the scenic panorama, and the lot is built out to its full potential offering a saltwater pool, basketball / sports court, and faux grass yard. Multiple outdoor terraces, both covered and uncovered, jut off the back of the home, optimizing indoor/outdoor living from all levels — with almost every room having its own attached outdoor living space. The French-style architecture is as striking as it is stylish, and truly shines from the backside of the residence.
The foyer boasts voluminous two-story ceilings and is punctuated by a custom multi-drop chandelier by Siemon and Salazar (based in California). This eye-catching piece features hand-blown “urchin and barnacle” pendants and sets the tone for an incredible experience that awaits!
The main living level is split between the formal spaces on the west side and the casual space on the east side, with the kitchen located right in between for convenient access. The formal living and dining rooms enjoy sweeping views, each have their own attached outdoor terrace, and offer an elevated and elegant place to lounge, read, or entertain guests.
The kitchen is located at the heart of the home and features top-end stainless appliances, including a SubZero refrigerator, gas range by Wolf, and dual Monogram smart ovens with convection and steam options. A new dishwasher, warming drawer, and beverage fridge integrated into the island complete the package. The gorgeous stone atop the island radiates deep, rich hues of emerald and bronze, and custom hand-blown “Wabi” glass pendants hang from above. The island features breakfast bar seating and custom glass-faced cabinetry runs the perimeter.
Open to the kitchen are the breakfast and family rooms, creating a smooth transition into the home’s casual living spaces. The family room is sunken and is centered by a fireplace on the east wall and built-ins with integrated cabinets and speakers on the north wall. A set of French doors opens to another terrace and custom Schumacher draperies keep the space cozy, even with its cathedral wood-beam ceilings. It’s the perfect spot to cuddle up for movie night or entertain and watch the game!
Rounding out the main level is the opulent home office, which boasts built-in bookshelves, ornate judge’s paneling, and a lounge area with integrated TV and speaker system. A guest bedroom with en-suite bath is tucked away for privacy, as is the powder room. Swanky and sophisticated, the powder room features grasscloth wallpaper, alabaster sconces, onyx counters, and custom sink with gold stripe.
Ascend to the second floor via the impressive main staircase, which transitions into the upper hallway and overlooks the foyer from above. The upper hall provides access to the primary suite on one side and two bedrooms, a full bath, and laundry room on the other.
The spacious primary suite offers vaulted ceilings, a sitting area (or home office), private outdoor terrace, incredible view of the Bay and San Francisco, and a luxuriously appointed bath. The primary bath was renovated in 2022 and features Calacatta Borghini marble, a custom view shower stall, and floating tub in front of custom set feature wall. Dual vanities with new counters and polished nickel Kallista hardware exude sophistication, and a custom inset braided marble “rug” is centered on the bathroom floor. The primary is topped off with a spacious walk-in closet.
Down the hall are two generously sized bedrooms, perfect for kids, and each has its own private outdoor view terrace. The second and third bedrooms share a beautifully appointed bathroom with oversized tub, stall shower, and oversized dual vanity. The laundry room is conveniently located here on the bedroom level and comes with washer/dryer.
The lower level of the home has a separate entry, making it ideal for guests, in-laws, or au pair. The space features a living area, kitchenette, full bath, and bedroom. Opening to the pool and yard area, this area of the home offers versatility and endless possibilities!
A newly painted exterior and new exterior light fixtures continue the theme of extraordinary pride of ownership outdoors. The back side of the home will be host to many BBQs, pool parties, HORSE games and dunk contests. The home’s positioning on the block allows for great privacy in the back yard and lush landscaping adds the final layer.
Other highlights include a 5 kWh solar system, air conditioning, Nest thermostats, whole-house water filtration, Brilliant lighting system, AV wiring, Cat5 wiring, smart irrigation system, and two huge wine coolers in the garage.
Tiburon’s waterfront location makes it a prime destination for Marin County homebuyers. And with its proximity to San Francisco, microclimate, sweeping views of the Bay, and great school system, the community is simply one of the best in the entire United States.
For a town of less than 10,000 residents, Tiburon offers a variety of activities that belies its small size. The annual Tiburon International Film Festival brings films from around the world. Residents enjoy shopping in the elegant boutiques along Ark Row, a leafy, block-long enclave of tiny shops that were once floating arks, and dining at the excellent restaurants along Main Street.
For the nautically inclined, Tiburon's Corinthian Yacht Club hosts races on the Bay. Ferries to San Francisco and Angel Island State Park leave from the dock at Tiburon. The commute to San Francisco by ferry is one of the greatest commutes in the world.
Tiburon's parks are strung out like pearls on a necklace along the water’s edge. Blackie's Pasture, named after an old swaybacked horse that once lived here, is a popular spot for hikers, joggers, bikers, moms with strollers, and dog walkers. On weekends, the parks fill up with soccer players of all ages. Just across the street from 99 Via Los Altos is a local's trailhead, which connects to a web of trails along Tiburon Ridge and Ring Mountain.
Celebrity Chef Michael Mina has just opened an incredible restaurant in downtown, called Bungalow Kitchen, which boasts open-air dining on the Bay with views to the City. A few doors down is Sam's Anchor Cafe, an institution for locals. Just down the hill from 99 Via Los Altos is the Nugget Grocery Store, perfect for healthy, organic essentials and prepared foods.
Just up the 101 is wine country and the home is just 20 minutes to San Francisco by car, which includes a scenic drive across the Golden Gate Bridge. 99 Via Los Altos gets all the benefits of living in Tiburon but is not located so far out on the peninsula where Tiburon Boulevard traffic backs up. This location is perfect for conveniently accessing San Francisco and all the nearby communities.
